Phoebe’s ‘Peter Pan & Wendy’ Screen Test experience!

Phoebe Farnham took a screen test for a new Disney film in February and here she is to tell us more about it. “In February I found out that I had got down to the final 3 actresses Worldwide for the amazing lead role of “Wendy” in Disney’s new live action feature film “Peter Pan and Wendy”. Two other young actresses from Canada and the USA joined me for the most exciting 3 day audition in London. 

  • Day 1 – We met the Director, Producers and UK and USA casting teams along with 3 hopeful “Peter” actors. We all partnered with each other in different combinations to see our chemistry and worked on various scenes from comedy and tears to full on arguments!
  • Day 2 – The Wendy and Peters met with potential Michael and Johns again trying out different group scenarios.
  • Day 3 – This was the most exciting of all as we got to work individually with Disney’s Hollywood stunt team – Fitness, play fighting, drop falling, fear factors and best of all sword fighting which I discovered I had a talent for ( who knew?) and even managed to “kill” my instructor when I advanced on “ready” before he said “action”.
    It didn’t go my way in the end but this was such an amazing experience – everybody got on so well, and there was no tension only fun. I learnt so much and had such wonderful feedback that after this I’m ready for my next opportunity with an open heart, and maybe a sword” 

This was a once in a lifetime opportunity and we’re incredibly proud of Phoebe for making such a fantastic impression, and getting so far along with the process! Onto the next fabulous opportunity!
