Hi, My name is Zoe and I am writing to you from http://loucloutercasting.com/
We are currently casting a really interesting, thought provoking, and inspiring TV commercial campaign for Ireland. Powerful stories that focus on acts of courage that changed lives, and made a difference.
We are searching the UK & Ireland to find a girl who has a missing left forearm and similar look to play the younger version of female paralympic athlete Ellen Keane.
is committed to diverse, honest and inclusive casting that reflects the real world we all live in and we want to be as true to life as possible. This is so important right now as we are reaching a zeitgeist in the world where our perceptions of what is different about people is changing radically.
Ellen’s inspiring story…
Ellen is born different from most people. As a small child she feels like any other human. She laughs and plays. As she grows up she one day notices adults staring at her, or catches them staring. It’s not the children that seem to care, but the adults.
Finally she learns that she must love herself and see what others see as her disability as a gift.
This courage takes her all the way to the Olympics and a national hero.
