Disney Channel Opens Digital Casting Call For Aspiring Child Actors

Disney Channel is seeking new talent!

According to Deadline, the network has released a casting call for diverse child talent between the ages of 8 and 16. Video submissions will be accepted now through December 31.

“In our ongoing efforts to reach a broader pool of talent across the U.S., our digital open casting call allows parents whose kids aspire to be actors the opportunity to submit their child’s audition right from where they live,” said Judy Taylor, senior vice president of Disney Channel’s Casting and Talent Relations division.

“This also gives Disney Channel a chance to potentially discover fresh, young and diverse talent who may not yet have agency representation,” Taylor continued.

Video submissions can be uploaded to Disney’s casting website.
