When I first came up with the idea for this film, my main worry was that I would struggle to find two young children who could pull off these complex and demanding roles. As it turns out though, I was in the happy position of being spoiled for choice. Over 500 children applied for the roles – many of them very talented and with lots of experience.
The two children who have now been cast have totally outstripped all my expectations. Harrison Naz and Sienna Barlow will be playing the roles of Harry and Grace. They both have a lovely natural style of acting and have a great rapport together. I’m super excited to work with them both and am over the moon to have them on board.
