Warner Bros have cast the major roles in the Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them and one east Londoner could be starring alongside them.

Eddie Redmayne is cast as the main character, but film bosses want to find a girl aged between eight and 12 to play Modesty, a “haunted young girl with an inner strength and stillness”.

We expect there to be thousands of budding actors turning up for the role, so below are a few ways that may help in snagging the part.

1. Find your very own Hedwig

This trusty owl stuck with Harry thick and thin, so he could help you out too. (NB Please don’t actually bring an owl. He probably wouldn’t appreciate it much)

2. Take a magic wand

And cast a spell on the casters. Genius.

3. Fly in on a Nimbus 2000 broomstick

It transported Harry throughout his adventures, so maybe it could also sweep the judges off their feet (ba-dom-cha)

Auditions take place from 9am on Saturday, July 18, at the Excel centre in Docklands. Hopefuls should just turn up (get there early).
