Characters Up for Grabs
The auditions will be held for a number of different roles, even ones for the title role of the girl Louise after whom the film is named. The role of the girl will be challenging and any aspiring actor wanting to audition for the role should know that the shooting will involve extensive emotional scenes. The age of the girl in the movie is somewhere between 14 to 20 and girls that fall into this age category will be considered. This role will involve extensive working with a trained dog and anybody that is applying for the role should take that into account. The girl is someone who has recently lost her mother in a tragedy and is struggling to connect with her father.
The second titular role for the film which is also up for grabs in the audition is that of the father of the lead actress. The role of the father is one of an old man who is in their 40s and 50s and preferably people of that age group will be considered, a good actor nonetheless from an age group above or below this should not hesitate to try.
The role of the father is of a man who is failing at parenthood after an accident has occurred which has taken away his wife. The primary characteristics of the man are someone who is both temperamental and grieving the loss of his wife.
