Advice: Auditioning For the Role of Jill Pole

Posted December 22, 2010 4:00 pm by Tirian

Since the release of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, we at NarniaWeb have received almost daily inquiries about auditioning for the role of Jill Pole in The Silver Chair. After the release of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, these inquiries have risen to almost unbelievable levels. We wanted to take this opportunity to give some information about the film industry and answer the questions that folks may have about how to acquire a role.

Pre-Production and Greenlighting

Before casting begins for a film, there are several steps that take place. A script is written (or at least begun), the story is pitched to the studio, and the studio then “greenlights” the film, which means that the production is formally approved and financed. After the film is greenlit, it then enters pre-production, during which the script is finalized and plans are made for the actual shooting of the film. It is during this pre-production stage that casting is done.

Casting and Auditions

The casting process for The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was somewhat unique in that casting director Pippa Hall held many public auditions when searching for the four Pevensie children. These auditions were generally held at schools around the UK, with children from the drama clubs being invited to attend. This is not typical, though, and usually a casting director will work directly with agents and industry contacts to come up with a list of potential actors to fill a specific role. Several actors are given auditions and the director and producers together decide which one will best play the part. This is the way that Will Poulter was cast for the role of Eustace.

Occasionally there will be open auditions for extras at a film location shoot. When that information becomes available we always post it at NarniaWeb.

Silver Chair Status

The future of the Narnia movies depends on the box office results for each film. If The Voyage of the Dawn Treader doesn’t do well enough in theaters, it is likely that there will not be any further Narnia films. If it is successful (and no one is sure exactly what the threshold of success is in the eyes of the studio), then Walden and Fox will likely move forward and attempt to get another Narnia film greenlit.

In interviews the producers have mentioned that they are considering The Silver Chair as well as The Magician’s Nephew for the next film. This could mean that The Silver Chair would be skipped or passed over temporarily, or that both films could be made at the same time. There are any number of possibilities, but the reality is that the future of the franchise and The Silver Chair is very much in limbo right now. It also goes without saying that production for The Silver Chair has not been greenlit and is not currently looking for any actors for the simple reason that there is no production.

Advice

If you are interested in auditioning for the role of Jill Pole or any other character in a Narnia film, the best advice that we can give is to 1) get involved with a local drama group to hone your skills and 2) hire an agent who can acquire an audition for you with the casting director when the time comes. There likely won’t be any public auditions. This is simply the way that Hollywood works.

Another question that we are often asked is about what the producers are looking for. Again, since there are no producers and no production (yet), we have no idea. During the casting process for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Pippa Hall was quoted as saying that she felt that there were so many brilliant British actors that there was no need to look for someone who could “fake” a British accent. So our expectation is that the producers would probably look to the UK first to fill the role of Jill Pole.

Conclusion

To sum this all up, The Silver Chair has not yet been greenlit so there are no roles yet to be filled. If you are interested in auditioning for a role when one becomes available, we recommend that you hire an agent who can acquire an audition for you when the time comes. Good luck!

    Hey guys! Listen up! The silver chair’s hobbit (what ever that means) is greenlit. So keep in mind it’s not fully greenlit. Also, does anyone know what the hobbit of the movie means???

  • louisesmall says:

    I have decided to email/write to any previous acting directors for the Narnia movies to persuade them to hold open auditions for Jill/Polly. This way, even the kids who dont do drama groups or have an agent have exactly the same chance as them.As for the kids who are priveledged to have all those things, they can audition just like us regualar people. WHO’S WITH ME??

    • Narnia #1 Fan says:

      I am! It isn’t fair, because they will start in the UK, and then they will probably find one there, and we won’t even get chance!! I’m with you! Anyone else?

      • actress in the making says:

        I totaly agree because I mean their are great actors all over the world the should give us a chance too!

    • narniafan16 says:

      I am too! I agree. It’s not really fair if kids that could be PERFECT 4 Jill can’t be her just because they don’t have an agent or whatever. I think they should have free auditions πŸ™‚

      • louisesmall says:

        i know some of the casting directors, but i dont know who else helped. I might need to contact Fox or Walden Media about it. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who thinks its unfair. I’m hoping to do my audition video soon, I’ll probs send it too whoever I contact too.

      • Lucia says:

        Yes,i totally agree,narniafan16!!!
        @loisesmall,
        i’ve contacted to walden,but they haven’t write back,yet…mayb cuz i am japanese??

      • narniafan16 says:

        Heyyyy did anyone here post a video on YouTube of their self as Jill?
        Please tell me!

    • Chrissie says:

      I agree! I would love to audition!

  • Lizzie says:

    does anybody know whether starsinmyeyes.tv is any good? i signed up to it & it has a whole heap of auditions but it doesnt let me apply for any coz i went for the free subscription.. i REALLY want to try out for jill so bad & i think its not fair if we arent all given a chance, just because we dont have agents & stuff doesnt mean we arent any good, one of us could be the next kiera knightely for all the directors know!! if anyone finds out anything, please post it on here!!!

    • Chrissie says:

      Hey!:)I signed up to starsinmyeyes too! And yeah same here I got the free subscription so can’t apply for anything:(
      It does seem quite good though, so I’m just looking out for anything about auditions on the internet and if I see anything I will head there. If it has any auditions I’ll get the basc membership for a (I think it’s about Β£8 and lasts a month) so that I can apply for an audition. Hope this helped!

      • Lizzie says:

        yeah im thinking of that. if anything comes up i’ll register for the paid one, i sooo badly want to audition!!

    • archerygirlxx says:

      NO NO NO!!!!! it is a massive scam DO NOT JOIN they get u nowhefe and give you loads of viruses!!!!!!! bad idea seriously they are not a real casting agency!!!

  • Narnian Wannabee says:

    I have everything ready! I have an agent page, a resume page, an acting class, and have narnia open for details!! Those are my four little pages on the Internet. So does anyone have a facebook so that I can see what you look like? I am having boy trouble (sigh). Tomorrow is chapel and a have a science test tomorrow 2.

    • Lucia says:

      hey,kit-kat!ur ready,perfectly**
      i want 2 c u in facebook page!But the problem is that,i don’t have my own…(i wanted 2 try,but my parents never let me do that.)
      hey,mayb…please tell me URL of your agency’s site??
      i can visit there**

    • archerygirlxx says:

      i have facebook!!!!

    • narniafan16 says:

      No offense, but now I’ve realized facebook is sort of dangerous for kids. It’s a long story why! But as long as u r careful w/ it, I guess it’s fine to have it.

  • narniafan16 says:

    I have a question
    Must u wear makeup when they r filming? I think u have 2,
    Or they won’t c u well

    • Narnia #1 Fan says:

      … I think so……… yeah I think they do. πŸ™‚

    • Lucia says:

      yeah,i think so!cuz Anna or Georgie were makeuped in the movies.it was really natural,though*
      but i donnt do that daily!

    • Narnian Lover says:

      You do have to were make up because otherwise you will look washed out if you know what I mean. My friend went on tv and she wore make up even though it wasn’t a film. The make ups not to make them look pretter becaue they are it just to make them stand out more.

  • narniafan16 says:

    I’m taking archery at a field trip
    Hopefully that will help…does Jill use a bow and arrow?

  • Narnian Wannabee says:

    Where is Lucia? And this is for Em: Has your agent gotten any info yet? And for everybody else usually talent agncies are free because they look for local talent.

  • narniafan16 says:

    Well I have a problem. Am I tall enough? My height is
    4’11. Will poulter (eustace) is like, 5’9 or 5’10. Well by the time it’s greenlit I will b taller
    And by the time they film it I will be taller probably

  • Narnian Wannabee says:

    To answer your qustion narniafan16 you do have to wear makeup on set. Don’t you wear makeup normally? I have always wanted to do archery and one if my Sunday school teachers knows who to use a bow and arrow maybe he can teach me. And also Jill doesn’t use a bow in this book only in the next book does she use weapons.

  • Narnian Wannabee says:

    Yes you would be taller but think about it : so would will. But they can do effects to fix that and Jill could be teases because she was short.

  • Narnia #1 Fan says:

    So, in SC the book, Jill is supposed to be 9, but… I think they will make her 12 or 13. This wouldn’t be odd, because look at Princ Caspian. In the book he is around… 10, and in the movie, he’s like 18. So… yeah.

    • narniafan16 says:

      Yea good point πŸ™‚
      They r most likely changing the eustace. I mean, wouldn’t a twelve or thirteen year old look weird w/ a boy like, a foot taller than them?!

      • Narnia #1 Fan says:

        Did you hear that they mightt somewhere, or do you just think that? Hahaha! Yeah. I wouldn’t think they would because he did so good in the last one. Well, I am 5’3, and that would be like… 7 inches more… someone said he was 5’9 or 5’10.

      • Lizzie says:

        i highly doubt they’d change will poulter as eustace, as then the audience would get confused & he does such a good job of playing such a difficult character. i doubt they would go for someone really young as the age gap would be too big, im 16 & 5 foot 4, i hope im in with a chance but im guessing people who are like 2 or 3 years younger might be in with a chance as long as they had good on screen chemistry with will.

      • narniafan16 says:

        Yea I think will is gr8 at playing eustace, but he’s just way 2 old 4 Jill, who is supposed 2 b twelve, not 18!

  • Narnian Wannabee says:

    Oh I wear makeup. I am happy about acting but sad about boys:(

    • Narnia #1 Fan says:

      Cool! Yeah, I would ask you whats wrong but you probably wouldn’t want to tak, and this is a post for auditioning for Jill, we really should stay on subject. What do look like? Do you think I would make a good Jill Pole?

  • Narnian Wannabee says:

    Well it doesn’t say that in the book…….it doesn’t give definate ages.

  • Narnian Wannabee says:

    I would tell you but you just don’t want to know so I won’t. I look like: dirty blond hair, blue eyes, pale skin, freckles, am 5’4, am 13, and like to talk. Oh! And call me kit kat!

    • Narnia #1 Fan says:

      Thats ok. Oh, thats cool! This is me: I have a little longer then shoulder length brown hair, blue eyes, pale(ish) face, freckles, not skinny but not fat, people say I have a really pretty smile, and I am almost 13. I don’t have a british accent, but I have a really good fake one, and I am 5’3.

      • narniafan16 says:

        If u don’t mind, this is a little self-bio of me. I have dark, dark brown shoulder-length hair that is poofy, and I have bangs that are growing on the side. (I am planning to cut my bangs soon so I can look more like Jill) I am 4’11. People say I’m great at acting, and I look A LOT like Jill. Especially my eyes!!! I am a natural with animals and I am planning to take horseback riding. I am planning to take archery as well. I am good at making a fake-Brittish accent. I am 11 but almost turning 12.

  • Narnian Wannabee says:

    Her bio?? Where is that? It’s not in the book I know that.

  • TheRealEmilee says:

    Well my agent has sent my stuff off to Nina Gold. And she replied!:) Ahhh so greatful!

  • Narnia #1 Fan says:

    Seriously?????!!!! WOW!!!! YOU ARE SO LUCKY!! What did Nina Gold say when she replied?!

    • TheRealEmilee says:

      Hey she said that "if" the SC gets greenlit I NEED to auditions because I have a lot of potential of being Jill Pole and she said if my agent or I had any questions to give her a call.

  • Narnia #1 Fan says:

    Oh, Gotta go, bye!

  • Narnian Wannabee says:

    That is awesome Em!!! When you become famous don’t forget the little ppl!! πŸ™‚ I need to get an agent, I am typing up my resume now!

  • Lucia says:

      • Narnia #1 Fan says:

        Oh, I asked my mom this morning, and she said it meant to write up all of your accomplishments (or however you spell it)or jobs. At first I thought it meant just… you know about yourself. What you look like, what you can do, etc. I couldn’t make a resume because I haven’t had any acting acpperiance (or however you spell it). ………. πŸ™

      • Lucia says:

    • TheRealEmilee says:

      Hey(: A resuma is a thing telling what you look like and your best qualites. Like your age,height,weight,hair color and then what your good at and what you have been in like plays or movies or whatver. Go on Bing.com and type in talent resumas and they can give you examples. Hope this helped!:)

  • coolio says:

    Does anyone know how to find a good agent? i really want to audition but i dont know where to find an agent
    πŸ™‚

  • Narnian Wannabee says:

    Google up talent agencies! You are sure to find a good one!!

  • Chrissie says:

    I would love so much to be Jill! Thanks for putting up this article it really helped!
    I’m 14, and absolutely LOVE the Chronicles of Narnia!
    I do have some acting experience, in theatres and at school, but nothing on screen – although I have done my research so i know for sure i could handle it! I have had training too.
    I also love horse riding – I have lessons. I’m English, have mid-length brown hair (a bit longer than shoulder length), blue eyes and 5 foot 6. I also have really straight teeth haha!
    Jill seems to be a very popular role though! If you have any information on how to get or contact an agent I’d be really grateful! I’ve been looking for one for ages but they’re all too expensive!
    I did contact Nina Gold but unfortunately had no reply, unlike many of the people on here!
    Thank you so much!:)

    • coolio says:

      i thought you didnt have to pay agents. They only get paid once you have a job, then they get like 20% of your wages

    • Narnia #1 Fan says:

      Cool! We are alot alike! I know how to ride horses, and… LOVE THEM! I have the same hair, eyes, and teeth! Hahaha! But, I don’t any experiance in acting. I am almost 13, and I am 5’3. English as in, British? Oh cool! I’m not. πŸ™

    • Chrissie says:

      Yeah English as in British, I live in England.
      And yeah that’s what I thought but apparently you have to pay to sign up to their books, and also for a photoshoot (I have look at those and they are also very expensive!) and a professional CV?

  • coolio says:

    what acting agencies are you some of you guys represented by? i did look on google but it came up with other agencies πŸ™‚

  • Narnian Lover says:

    I went on google to see about Jill Pole auditions and it said that the part of Jill had already been taken by someone. I not so sure about it.Have.I wondered have whether any of you had heard about it to?

  • Mary says:

    Emilee-

    Thanks for all your info on everything, you have been a great help and we all greatly appreciate it. :)) I have a quick question; where did you find your agent specifically? Do you have any recommendations for an agency? Or could you tell us which agency yours came from? I am afraid of finding a fraud website, or a bad agent.

    I am so sorry to bother you, I know you are busy, and I know that there are hundreds of questions on here that are much more important than mine.

    Thanks again, πŸ™‚

    Mary

      i want do that 4 HHB few years later**

  • lis narnia says:

    sorry ‘tipp’!

  • lis narnia says:

    sorry i tried to reply… I am silly!:)

  • lis narnia says:

    Greenlit, not greenlit! It is really confused!:)

  • Narnia #1 Fan says:

    You know… I am 13, and I am 5’3… but if Will P is 18, then he probably won’t get any taller… by the time the film is accually made, we would be alot taller, and he might not be any taller then he is now. I measured me, next to WP hight, and it wan’t too high… I think they might havee made him shorter in the film, because he and Georgie H look the same hight, but look how much taller he is in this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpmUOLBXcxU
    So, they can probablt make him a good hight if the actress is too short.

    • Narnia #1 Fan says:

      (sorry for messing up typing so much) I meant actually, and have, and probably… i don’t know if i messed up on actress..

  • Narnia #1 Fan says:

    πŸ™ I still haven’t heard back from the agent. πŸ™ Now what should I do???

  • Lucia says:

    Hey,my friends!
    let’s keep posting though it looks MN will make first*
    We can help each other through this page,u know!!
    Does any1 have news???

  • Jessi says:

    Hi wow I just read this and you all sound like amazing actresses, Emilee I loved your video…. I think it would be so fun to be be Jill πŸ™‚

  • Jessi says:

    I will Lucia!

    • archerygirlxx says:

      heey jessi u should watch my video if u type in jill pole audition then look for ellabellabooxxx1 that is mee!!!!!!
      hope u enjoy it!! πŸ˜€

    • Lucia says:

      Oh,really?I will*but donnot expect a cute girl!i am really not-cute-girl!!!

  • actress in the making says:

    Ok soon I am going to ask my mom for a talent agent any advice?

  • Jessi says:

    Hey everyone just watched the old silver chair..Camilla Power played Jill and I think she did a pretty good job..the movie was ok I like Will P. as Eustace better and the effects were a little corny..but it was made a while ago

    • Narnia #1 Fan says:

      Yeah, I’ve seen parts of t, but I agree, Will P. is better as Eustace. Right, she is is pretty good. I didn’t like what I saw too much though… well, but right, it was made a long time ago.

    • Lucia says:

      Yeah,i think camilla was pretty good,2!Not only her looks but acting was also nice,i think*
      & about eustace,Will p.was really good,in my opinion.i luv the last scene in VDT,espesially the farewell of Reep & eustace!

  • Ellie says:

    Does Jill Pole have to have brown/blonde hair and blue eyes? I mean, it never really described her in the book…
    Right, so I have black/dark brown depending on the lighting. My eyes are green or yellow, again, depending on the lighting. I have an American accent, but I’ve been told that my English accent is rather convincing. I’m thirteen years old and 5’1. I’ve been reciting the lines from the book like a madman! :0

    • Jessi says:

      Ellie…no I don’t think Jill has to have brown/blond hair….but I think that’s what some people expect

    • Lucia says:

      Yes,& she has light brown hair in the pictures.
      But i think it’s ok if the actress act jill has another!!
      Acting skill is the matter***

      • Narnia #1 Fan says:

        Right. Hair color and stuff can be changed! Don’t spend all of your time on your looks, focus on your acting!

  • fan says:

    why not they go to oltfa school in swansea to pick the next actorties.

  • Narnia #1 Fan says:

    Hi guys! I am (maybe) getting a youtube account sometime this month, and I MIGHT- thats the big word- MIGHT make a video of me as Jill Pole, if so, I will post a link on here. Remember… the BIG word is MIGHT… I made one the other day, and I looked REALLY bad in it! Hahaha!! Well.. if I do, it will either be late March or early(ish) April.
    MIGHT! πŸ˜€

        I pray for all in Japan!

  • lis narnia says:

  • archerygirlxx says:

    i have posted my new audition video!!! if you go on jill pole auditions 2 you will find it!!! please comment xx

  • GodsGirl says:

    Hey Guys I was wondering If any of you knows how can I fake a better british accent? I’m not really bad but there is just something missing. Please Help me!! And GOD Bless You All<3 (Pray for Japan as well, please).

    • Lizzie says:

      why dont you try the whole listening & copying strategy? i dont know where you’re from sorry so i have no idea how hard it will be for you, but find an english film or something with english actors with a natural english accent, & try & copy things they say until you get the hang of it? its easier to watch english actors rather than americans or something, because sometimes their accent can slip a little & they can sound a bit fake sometimes but good luck!! πŸ™‚ x

    • narniafan16 says:

      I’ve got some advice! Watch narnia carefully and listen carefully. My sister said I am somewhat getting better @ being Jill Pole…I think it might happen! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  • TheRealEmilee says:

    Lucia Im so glad to hear you are ok. I was praying for you and your fmaily:) My computer has been broken thats why I havnt been on here in a while. Will be posting a Jill Pole video on my youtube account.

  • Narnian Wannabee says:

    Not trying to freak you out Lucia but today my math teacher said that the radiation in the air from the nuclear plants would blow out to the sea and then come back and hit Tokyo. So just be careful, I am praying for all of Japan right now. I know it was terrible but it was God’s will and he knows more than we do so all we can do is trust in God to show us what He wants us to do. I think I am giving up on Narnia but I can’t just it seems so far away…..but yet so near……

    • TheRealEmilee says:

      Hey! I dont think you should give up on narnia. You have to beilve. I mean even if they do not greenlit SC first you can still be on here and get ppls support to follow your dreams so when they do shoot SC you will be ready! DONT GIVE UP!:)

    • Lucia says:

      thank u,kit-kat!& DO NOT GIVE UP NARNIA!!!!
      i won’t give up though i am japanese!
      go4 it!!yes,kit-kat,u can do it**

      • Jessi says:

        kit-kat… it’s times like these that we have to hold on to narnia…don’t give up on narnia

        I would rather live like a narnian even if there is no narnia: puddleglum SC

    • narniafan16 says:

      I’m counting on u..

      • TheRealEmilee says:

        Hey I know they have casted one lead role. They are still looking for other lead roles. They wouldn’t have auditions up if they were not looking any more. I do know they have 1 lead role filled and a few options for the others but they are still open.
