    Age 17, Redhead, blue & green eyes, Tan skin somewhat. I’m 5/4 very athletic 123 Pounds skinny but strong. I love the outdoors and the beauty of it. Very smart A honor roll student. I’m looking to be apart of the film because it’s a great series, my favorite. I think I would be the perfect part for Rachel. She reminds me of me. Not because I don’t have parents because I do whom I love very much but because she is strong headed and independent and knows what to expect. She reminds me of me because I’m independent and strong headed. My mother says I have enough to heartbreak and wisdom to last 3 lifetimes. I’m mature for my age and want to give people something to laugh about and entertainment in their life’s I want to be someone people look up to. I believe I should be Rachel.
    Thank you

  5. Brad


    Lifetime fan, division 1 student athlete (baseball pitcher). Pepperdine University grad, currently head coach for a high school baseball team and running my own real estate business. I’m athletic with a degree in communication. I believe this would make me a great candidate for this role. My midichlorian count is high regarding Star Wars canon. Would be able to go above and beyond given my knowledge of the Star Wars universe as well as my personal skills. Thank you for providing an opportunity for anyone who is interested.

  6. Apryl

    My name is Apryl. I live in Oregon. I am 14 years old, I will be 15 in July. I am around 103.8 pounds, I am around 4 1/2 to 5 feet tall. I have white skin with a darker look because I have Indian in me ( Chickasaw ). I have shoulder long brown hair and my bangs are the same and brown eyes to match. I have Martial Arts, wrestling, and gun handling experience. I have been told I can sing. I have grown up on a farm all my life so I know horses and farm animals, I can ride horses REALLY good. I also like snakes and I am calm around MOST animals ( incase that helps with anything) . I can swim. I have danced before but I need to know the moves, I have also swam with bottle nose (dolphin). I mostly sing with a med to a large group/ my school. I have been told I sing well, but I don’t know if I can or not I am kinda tone deaf. I even know some ASL (sign language). I have a POWERFUL voice to talk loud and scream. Let me just say I am the ONE u have been looking for. A whole lot more were that came from. All I need is a chance, Please. Thank You!

    You can find me on Facebook. I can make my eyes do funny things like cross eyed but with one looking at you. I can also touch the inside of my nose with my tongue. My other cousin and I were in dance class at my old school and we were the best in the group of like 10 or 15. In KINDERGARDEN I memorized (Luke 2:6-14) and said it in front of the whole school + parents. In 1st grade I memorized a med sized felt poem and said it to the whole school + parents. In 4th grade I sang a song for the talent show, there was about 20-40 people there. Last in 8th grade I memorized the first part of the “For score and seven years ago” speech that Abraham Lincoln said and said it at our closing program ( about 50 + people were there ). This probably does not matter, but I have a lot of animals at my home and if u need any animals for any movie let me know, and I will talk to my parents. I have dogs, cats, horses, cows, a pig, chickens, and a roster. ALL IS 100% TRUE!!!!!
    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! :);):);):):);).

    Even when writing this the excitement within then translated through my fingers onto the keyboard to actually get this lifetime opportunity is an absolute blessing so thank you so much for allowing me to do so.

    I grew up with all the Episodes of Star Wars and since i was 7 Years Old it was one of my life long dreams to be part of the Story of Star Wars. I hope that this long life dream can actually come true.

    I have had this massive hunger for 30 years to be in Star Wars and thought when the last three episodes came out, that was it my chance was gone but low and behold its come around again and there is nothing i would want more than to tell and to share this story of Star Wars.

    Im so excited that i really dont know what else to write :0) All i can ask for is this amazing opportunity to be a part of Cinematic History in the Story Telling of Star Wars.

  10. Rebecka Allison

    No one will probably notice this insignificant comment but it is worth a shot, eh?

    Star Wars includes everything I love: foreign worlds, other species, aliens, LIGHT SABERS, space, yeah you name it. I love the humour and wit you find in the series and the settings, costumes, dialogues, story and the amount of detail, I JUST LOVE THE SERIES.

    My dad introduced me to Star Wars before I had turned five (he died when I was 5), he was one of the biggest star wars fans I swear to god: wearing the darth maul mask to my day care, owning several limited edition movie boxes and signing bills with “han solo” among other things. His love for the series went on to me. They mean so much to me, christ, I was on the verge of crying seconds into the new trailer?

    To be in one, just one, of the movies that I love so much, would be so awesome. And it would possibly make my dad the most proud dad in the history of homo sapiens.

  28. Cameron Dahar

    Star Wars: Episode VII

    I’ve grown up with Star Wars and it’s always been a movie franchise that has held a special place in my household. I’m 22 going on 23 but I feel like I’ve been around much longer growing up with all the Star Wars movies, cartoons, memorabilia, etc. The sheer excitement and eagerness I have for both possibly being a part of the franchise and just watching this masterpiece come to life on the big screen cannot be described with words. I don’t have any acting experience aside from theater classes and the few plays I participated in during high school and so forth, but I do have a passion and a drive for acting. I believe skill beats natural talent with hard work and dedication, and that I would go above and beyond everybody’s expectation of me no matter what role or part I played. I just need the chance to prove it. My knowledge on all things Star Wars and my belief in this movie are two unique things along with the fact that I am a college graduate that believes in a healthy mind and body. I read often to keep my brain healthy and I exercise just about everyday to keep my body at optimal performance. I am young and hungry, and to get started on a project of this magnitude would be both an honor and a dream come true. Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I truly hope you consider me for any role in this movie.

    Best regards,
