Great News. We have just confirmed James Wilson for ‘Gone Fishing’, in the part of Simon. We auditioned James some time back, and when he came into the room, he just lit it up.
We also interviewed about 100 other kids, most of whom were solid little actors who would easily take an episode of Holby or The Bill their stride. But James had that extra something that draws the eye and heart.
At the start of this film, editor Eddie Hamilton commented that getting the kids right is much more important than the adults. He was right. And I think we have got the right ensemble cast of kids. Devon Murray, James Wilson and Lucy Joyce.
