A casting agency is seeking real-life LEGO stories from fans around the world

A casting agency is seeking true stories involving kids whose lives have improved as a direct result of playing with LEGO.

Mark Summers Casting has put out an open call for adults and children who are ‘passionate about using LEGO bricks or sets in their life or job’, with the aim of digging up real-life, inspirational stories surrounding the brick.

The casting call lists examples including teachers and mentors who use LEGO bricks to help kids in their daily lives, a child using LEGO to conquer personal fears (such as a monster under the bed), and kids with disabilities using LEGO in their day-to-day life.

Applications are open to children and adults in the US, Germany, Russia, France and China (sorry, UK fans). If you’re interested, you’ll need to email [email protected] by February 24. Filming will then take place over a single day in March, completed locally and taking into account all current COVID-19 restrictions.

Successful participants will be compensated for taking part, so if you’ve got a LEGO story you want to tell, now’s your chance. This isn’t the first time Mark Summers Casting has put out a call for LEGO fans, though – last year it sought kids aged six to nine years old – and likely won’t be the last, so don’t worry if you miss out this time.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
