Hollywood is Calling!

I received an email last week that will be of great interest to you and/or your students. The casting agent at Sarah Finn Casting in Los Angeles is looking to cast a young male in a martial arts oriented role.

Their past castings include, Black Panther, Avengers: Endgame, The Lion King, Jungle Book, Crash, Dora the Explorer, and Fast & Furious.

Here is the letter:

“Hi Mr. Graden,
I am writing to you because we are currently in the casting process for one of our upcoming big budget feature films and would love your help.

We are seeking young (age 7-12) males of Chinese descent who are trained in Martial Arts and have, if possible (though not necessary), some acting experience. Do you know of any talented martial artists who would be interested in this opportunity?”

To submit, please email written responses to the information below, along with a current photo of your child, with the subject “STUDIO FEATURE FILM” to submissions@sarahfinnco.com


1) Name, height, and age
2) Your availability & location (just city/state – you don’t need to tell us your address!)
3) Any information you’d like to share about your background
4) Level of Mandarin fluency, both speaking and understanding (i.e. fluent, conversational, basic, etc..)
5) Details of your martial arts experience (i.e. how many years, what type of training/areas of expertise)
6) Do you have any acting experience? (School plays, local theater, commercials, etc)
7) Anything else about yourself you’d like to share

Please feel free to also send us any reference video footage that you have (martial arts/acting) – we would like to see as much as you’re willing to share!
