The opportunity of a lifetime is here! Disney is now casting lead roles for their new movie “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”! Disney is making the famous ballet into a live action film. Disney is now casting for the lead role of Clara. The take on the classic talent will be based on the story ‘The Nutcracker and the Mouse King’ written by E.T.A. Hoffman. The classic story told of a young girl named Clara who receives a nutcracker doll from her godfather on Christmas Eve. When she goes to check on it later that night, the clock strikes midnight, and she finds herself thrust into a fantastical world where she is in the middle of a war between gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Casting directors for Disney are looking for a female actress between the ages of 13 and 17 years old. Actresses can be any ethnicity and height.
Clara (Female) – aged 13-17 years
Clever, creative and independent, Clara goes against female societal conventions of the period. At the beginning of the story she is lacking in confidence, struggling to cope with the death of her mother and trying to find her footing in the adult world. Uninterested in beauty and fashion, Clara is most herself when inventing contraptions and going on adventures; she is most comfortable in her own imagination. As she grows through the film we find her to be self sufficient, strong willed, curious, witty, inventive and ultimately confident in herself. She can be any height or ethnicity.
