Velociraptor (Film Universe)
There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Jurassic World 2 holding open casting call – first character details!

The news for Jurassic World 2 continues to flow out showing no signs of slowing, today’s being something fairly momentous: an open casting call. Yes, casting for Jurassic World 2 has finally begun. One of the biggest questions we’ve had is what new actors will star in the movie alongside Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, and we are now one step closer to an answer.


Jurassic World 2 (under the working title of Ancient Futures) is conducting a open casting search in both the UK and US for the role of ‘LUCY’. Here’s the casting breakdown:

She is a young girl around 9 years of age. The girl playing “Lucy” must be at least 9 years of age by February 2017, but cannot be over 10 years old.  She must be a sensitive and clever actress capable of handling long and complex scenes.  Lucy must be able to handle a range of emotions from tender moments with her father, to anxiety, bravery, and shock.

This role represents a huge and exciting opportunity for a young actress to play a significant role in a major Hollywood blockbuster.

If you know a young actress who would be fit for this opportunity (ANCIENT FUTURES – Role of LUCY), you can sign up at ‘‘ or ‘‘and submit for audition! Please be aware that there may be different local casting websites or opportunities that are more appropriate options, depending on where you live. Also note: reports suggest that young actresses up to the age of 12 repped by agents may be allowed to audition. Consult your casting agencies for more information, and good luck!

The casting call states the filming will primarily take place in the UK from February 2017 to June 2017, with a shoot lasting roughly 5 months! As the casting call does not mention Hawaii, we are unsure if her scenes will take her to the islands. It will be interesting to see if an unknown lands the role, or if it lands in the hands of a more established actress (Millie Bobby Brown, AKA Eleven from ‘Stranger Things’, anyone?)

Stay tuned, as more casting news is sure to pop up soon! Who do you think ‘Lucy’ is, and what role may she play in the upcoming film? Be sure to sound off in the comments below – and let us know if anyone you know will be submitting an audition!

Thanks to Nublar7 on Twitter for the heads up!

  1. Hello Jurassic Outpost, I am not a little 9 year old girl but, what about a T-Rex?? Yes thats right! A Rex,I can be in the background or whatever you want me to do,this is not a joke,Please take a look at my Rex ,I really think you guys will like it!! Please tell me where I can send you some pictures…

    1. Unfortunately, some casting agencies/websites are behind a paywall to help weed out spam entries. It may be worth seeing if any local agencies have a lead on how to apply for free.

      1. maybe you can post the one’s that don’t charge? If it’s legitimate then there should never be a charge t apply. It is actually illegal to charge for registering and applying in California.

        1. I’m unable to find any other public casting call links: according to some, this call has been circulating via agents for weeks now. If you’re from CA try calling one of the casting centers and see if they can point you in the right direction.

          1. how can I audition online? I don’t want to have to pay for auditioning, and that’s what castittalent and actors access does. They expect you to pay. How do you audition without paying?

      2. Guys has it started filming in Wales yet? Please, I want to be a film director and I want to see what it looks like behind the scenes. If it hasn’t started filming yet can someone let me know when?

  2. A picture is worth a thousand words it is said, and this one could be worth more!
    That painted scene of the two children riding and feeding baby herbivores out in the open I think gives a tremendous big clue of where the story is possibly going in the second film.

    I can’t help but think one of the ideas that may have sprang from this illustration is that not everybody after the park incident was accounted for and some children and parents were still lost on the island needing to be rescued.

    We all know from JW film that children in the park before the panic were able to hand feed and ride some of the young dinos in the petting zoos. Could it be that the painting depicts a couple of children doing the same in the wild? Perhaps helping the young herbivores survive until reunited with their parents or the other adults who could be searching for their infants on the island? As the human children (or namely the character of Lucy and her father) may become protected by the herbivore adults should they be found with their infants before the carnivores or the InGen rescue/abduction team.

    Could Owen, Clair and Blue be involved in a real rescue mission after all?
    Will InGen try to make exclusive use of this operation for their own interests?
    Will Rexy be searching for her own infant as well?.. and play a meaningful role of being every dinosaurs first line of defense against InGen’s troops for even the adult herbivores who would sustain and protect every infant dino including the human children and even rexy’s infant with them?
    Could the theme of human accountability be of InGen turning the rescue into a lock-down of the entire island to capture everything and everyone on it including Owen, Clair and Blue?

    I’m sure InGen would love to make up any story should they keep the rescue operation under wraps and bribe individuals like Dr. Wu or eliminate anyone against their scheme. Perhaps Dr.Wu could become the final whistle blower after he witness the consequence of siding with InGen.
    But what would trigger that? ..if not for perhaps the children, willing to take a stand against InGen’s plot and willing to give their lives for all the dinos including Rexy who defended the herbivores, who in turn protected the human children, who saved the infant dinos and perhaps even Rexy’s infant causing all to work together to survive?

    I’m sure Blue is going to be a key player because she and Rexy are not strangers and may become Owen and company’s only ticket to get safely pass the dino’s first line of defense towards rescuing the children.

    Goodness! this can become more than a trilogy.. it can go in so many directions that multiple outcomes with great potential story branching are possible! This can really take off if done right which most likely will. I’m very excited for this to say the least!

  3. I thought they would’ve moved past this children thing in the series already. Apart from Tim and Lex’s tension scenes in the t-shirt rex attack and, mainly, the raptors’ attack in the kitchen, none of the other children’s scenes in the series added to horror or nail-biting moments, in my opinion.

    Anyway, children in Jurassic Park’s films have become a trademark, much as a T-rex presence. I’ll just wait and see.

  4. I wonder if Gray and Zach will still be involved after all theres no indication Lucy will be the only child in the film. However i do admit if the boys were going to return they most likely would have been announced already, but we shall see.

  5. The picture they used in this article is from an unused scene in the first movie, where Lex rides a baby Triceratops. So don’t base any plot theories on it, just so you know.

    1. Hi – well, first be sure to consult with your parents or guardians beforehand! With their permission I would suggest signing up at and, and search for the ‘Ancient Futures – LUCY’ listings. Good luck! If you need any further help, try their customer support emails – I’m sure they will be glad to assist.

      1. Hello, I have a quick question if you don’t mind answering. I’m 19 and would love to audition for a role should one for this film that fits my age come up. I’ve gotten a bit of screen work experience locally (small town in the Midwest) but not enough to create a showreel, which I know is imperative to send in most open auditions. I also am in a bit of a time crunch at the moment in terms of getting an agent ASAP in regards to agency contracts (and there’s only one talent agency in town; I’ve tried going in a few months ago for a consultation for talent representation but the owner of the agency and the sole agent was not there [though I was there during normal hours of operation on the right day] – long story short, I do not have an agent). I do however have a headshot and current actors’ resume. My overall question is is a subscription to casting sites like ActorsAccess relatively worth it? Does it seem that they have video audition submissions open for most casting calls? I can’t currently afford to travel back and forth to LA for in-person auditions. Sorry this is a bit scatterbrained. If you need more details or any clarifications, please ask. Thanks so much for your time.

      2. Hi Mr. Pugh! I am Tina and if you’re looking for the next Milly Bobby Brown or someone to play Lucy i’m your girl! I am an experienced actress, i can also sing, dance, perform gymnastics and my own stunts, and SO MUCH MORE! I have been looking all over the internet for a casting like this and i think i hit the jackpot with this one: i am clever, very sensitive on camera(can express all emotions you mentioned above⬆), i am an experienced actress, and i can perform my own stunts(if there are any). I have sent ancient futures several messages regarding my age, height, etc. and i know that this is the casting that will change Hollywood by introducing me in the long list of best young actresses. Please reply to my comment soon, Mr. Pugh because I know if you choose me, you will not regret it!

        Thank you for reading.

  8. LUCY is….

    Brooke Lindsey Marriott
    Age 9
    Baltimore, MD

    Please help her submission through Cast It get noticed! This little girl would be an amazing choice for this part!

    1. @BrookeLindsey07

      Please help me to figure out if LUCY has been cast yet and if not, who I may contact?

      Brooke is age 9 and from Baltimore, MD. She has a vibrant personality and has been acting since age 3. She loves working aside adults and children alike and can handle difficult scenes. Please help in any way!

  9. I’m depressed now, why 9? Why not, say, 15? That would be perfect. I mean, not that I would ever get the part anyway… but still, being in this film would be amazing! I’ll be happy just being an extra, it’s shooting in London, right? If not then all of my dreams are shattered…

    1. Well the character Lucy is 9, and a 13 year old propobly wouldn’t look like a 9 year old.
      Plus if I didn’t get it I’d just wait for another audition

  10. I was so excited when my agent told me that I was going to audition for the role of Lucy! I can use different emotions and can get on well with others. I went there and saw that the other girls were very good, but I’m not going to let that disturb my confidence. It’s probably not me, since I haven’t been called yet, but well done to the girl that got it xx

  11. I will show you my profile and details. But first, there is something important that I need to say. It was 8:00 am in the morning, I hadn’t brushed my teeth, or hair, and I had to go to get my headshots done. That is the reason why my headshots don’t look like me. If i don’t get this, please could I possibly go for another audition for something? Soon I will be getting my headshots changed, and they will be better. Profile:
    Name: Ella Bonny
    Age: 9
    Skills: can use different expressions, fine to do anything because it’s only acting,but finds it difficult to cry on spot.
    Eye colour: Blue
    Hair colour: light blonde
    Personally: Funny, Kind and friends with people regards of their disabilities.
    Talents: Acting, Can easily recognise pop songs, part of PTP academy, and has been in 2 public performances in PTP.

    This was my first ever audition, so I’m not expecting to get it, but I would love to maybe be in something else.
    My agency is spotlight.

  14. I am Tina and I’m 11 years old. I am an experienced actress and i can tell you with 100% certainty that i am perfect for this role. I am a straight A student. I have competed in several spelling bees(8 spelling bees to “bee” exact😝) not including the one that i am going to go to in a week. This all shows that i am clever, like how you guys want Lucy. I am also a SUPER sensitive person. I have always been a sensitive person but i have been taking Tae Kwon Do classes since i was 5(btw i am a black belt and have been for a few months now). I can now control my emotions and i can express them bigger and brighter on camera. Summary time: my name is Tina, i am an experienced actress, you should pick me for the role, i am the next Millie Bobby Brown, you will not be sorry if you pick me for this part! Thank u for reading.
