(Via CNW) There’s an international casting call out for two young actors to star in the upcoming Netflix original series, A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. Characters are Violet, a “not-too-mature 14-year-old” (though she is “self-confident, capable and smart beyond her years”) and Klaus, a bookish but charming 10- to 13-year-old boy. Shooting starts early next year in — where else? — Vancouver. Apply for auditions by January 15, 2016; more details here.
