Oscar winning production company casting two teen Puerto Rican girls for lead roles

Samson Films is currently in pre-production on the feature film "Losing It" and the film's casting directors are seeking two teen Puerto Rican girls for lead roles. They are looking for fresh new talent with passion and a commitment for the role, so no fancy headshost or impressive resumes are required to apply. The roles are open to both Union and Non-Union actors.

Samson Films is one of Ireland's leading independent film and television production companies, and winner of an Academy Award for the film "Once", which Samson Films co-produced with The Twilight Saga production company Summit Entertainment.
