KAMLOOPS — First Nations actors in and around the Kamloops area will have an easier time auditioning for a local film production.

The production Indian Horse is based on the book of the same name written by local author Richard Wagamese.

Thompson-Nicola Film Commissioner Vicci Weller says the production is looking for certain people for speaking parts.

"They're looking for males ages six to 25 years old," said Weller. "These are for speaking roles only, and they must be able to play hockey."

"We'll ship it off to the casting director so they don't have to worry about it."

 Tapings will take place next Monday and Tuesday on the Tk'emlups reserve, and one week later in Merritt.

 To arrange an audition, contact the Thompson-Nicola Film Commission.
