Marvel Studios Searching For British Child Actors; Possibly Young Loki
A casting call went out this afternoon for a Marvel Studios project, filming dates yet to be determined, for actors/actresses to portray 10 year old British male and 10 year old British female respectively.
The descriptions for the roles are as follows:
Male, 10 years old, British, Open Ethnicity, smart and brave with a sharp wit and life experience beyond his years…RECURRING
Female, 10 years old, British, Caucasian, in tears over a frightening situation, she relies on her intelligence and resilience to find a way out.
While the project is unnamed, the New Orleans based casting agency who released the call is working out of an office located in Atlanta. Given the nature of the characters and the fact that the shooting dates are TBD, it’s very likely that these roles are for the Disney Plus series, Loki, set to begin production in Atlanta next month.
Rumors have swirled for some time that a younger Loki might be present in flashbacks, so it’s possible that the male character, which is a recurring role, might fit that bill. Of course it’s more likely it is for another character, but the recurring nature is the most interesting part.
While the female role isn’t recurring, it’s possible that it too might be a younger version of a character set to appear in the show. Actress Sophia Di Martino, who was cast in an unknown role in November, is set to co-star with Tom Hiddleston. Rumors have placed her not only as a female reincarnation of Loki, but also as Amora, the Enchantress. While nothing about this casting call points to either of those characters, it is possible the Di Martino’s role is connected. Alternately, the character could be Leah, one drawn from Kieron Gillen’s beloved run on Journey Into Mystery and one Loki’s only true and loyal friends.
Loki is currently set to debut on Disney Plus in the Spring of 2021.
