I came across a girl called Christa over at her blog, The Snarky Sparrow, has posted a great writeup of the open casting call in Phoenix for Native American actors for New Moon, including this great pic of a New Moon hopeful holding her casting card–

"I was fortunate enough to sneak a peek at the Phoenix casting call for New Moon. [...] Everyone was very nice, and I really didn’t even get any looks for being there, even though I clearly didn’t fit the description of the casting call. I brought my real camera, so I guess that explained why I was there.

Registration took place in the lobby of the Phoenix Indian Center. It seemed pretty well organized. They seemed to be directing people very well for minimum confusion. It’s a smallish lobby and when I got there, there were about 100 people crammed into it. The people running the show were calling people in groups by age. I have no idea how many people were already back there auditioning. The atmosphere in the lobby was tense. I don’t know why, but I expected a sort of fangirl SQUEEL. Nope, there was very quiet murmur considering the number of people. I didn’t see anyone practicing their lines or anything, unless they were doing it silently. Most people were talking to a buddy quietly. I didn’t feel free to walk around because it was so cramped, and because the mood clearly said, “Don’t bother anyone.” I took what pictures I could around the door where the light was best. It was pretty dark in there and I didn’t want to bother anyone with my flash."

Lucky duckies! I would love to have auditioned. But after the negative article written by Native Americans bashing the Twilight casting staff about casting non-native americans for the Native parts in New Moon I would be afraid of the negative backlash, they were bashing Filipinos & Asians for portraying those parts in the movie, like Vanessa Hudgens, Michael Copon, etc. Being of half Filipino descent myself I would be scared. Why should it matter? Honestly, as long the actor has the look, of course being authentic Native American or First Nations would be preferred, but the best actor or actress should get the part. Someone who is passionate & can bring life to that character would be best, not just because they are Native, May the best actor win!
