Irish film seeks young actor to star alongside Olivia Colman


Do you know someone who would fit the role?

An Irish film – titled Mully and starring Olivia Colman – has launched a major casting for a young male actor.

The producers are looking for a boy who could pass for 13 years to play the lead role.

Described as a “well-being and rude fairy tale,” the film sees a “shipwrecked” new mom find herself on a road trip with a young boy who runs away from his crook father.

The film will be directed by Emer Reynolds, who directed the acclaimed space documentary The Farthest and the Phil Lynott-focused songs for While I’m Away.

Reynolds’ first non-documentary feature, Mully will be shot from June to August in Ireland.

No acting experience is required to apply to play the main character.

Reynolds said of the casting call: “The search for Mully begins. An incredible role for a young male actor – playing 13-year-old Mully opposite the peerless Olivia Colman.

“Can’t wait to meet you!”

Colman won an Oscar for playing Queen Anne in the 2018 dark comedy The Favorite, and won Golden Globes for his work in The Crown and The Night Manager.

She has also had roles in comedy series such as Fleabag and Peep Show, as well as the drama film The Father.

For the latter, she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at this year’s Oscars.
