I've just emerged from my great Grey Cup goings-on to make this equally exciting announcement.... Please forgive the rather formal tone to follow; I gave all my best lines to the television yesterday to get those Alouettes out of the gutter! (hats off to Saskatchewan - you Roughies were sublime! A most worthy adversary!)
So now back to the announcement:
As promised in previous blogs, today we are officially opening up the "cyber floor" to all possible Elizabeths far and wide...!
The search for the actor who will play our 11-year old heroine is heating up. As some of you may know, we are presently in the midst of spending quality time with our seven short-listed candidates across the country, but still want to throw open the process to anyone who would like to be part of our on-line search for Elizabeth.
Anyone who is female, Canadian and between the ages of 9 and 15 (but LOOKS 11) is eligible! Whether you've already auditioned for us through the formal casting process or not, we will be thrilled to see you this time around.
To find out exactly what we're looking for and how to submit your self-tape for consideration : simply click here to link to our Facebook Fan Page.
Once you've made your self-taped audition, you'll be able to post it to the Fan Page and readers will be able to vote for their favourite "Elizabeth". Submissions will be accepted until 5 pm EST on Monday, December 21, 2009.
We're looking forward to seeing you all! Good luck!
