My Grandson, Charlotte
Short film My Grandson, Charlotte tells the story of a mixed-raced, transgender teenager who bonds with their immigrant grandfather. The team are casting for a lead and two supporting actors ahead of filming next month. Here are the breakdowns:
Leading role Charlie is for a mixed-race and transgender actor to play age 9–15.
Grandfather Hassan is for a male actor aged 50 or over of black African heritage. He’s described as an ageing, Congolese sapeur with “exquisite style and a wonderful heart.”
