Paris – Federation Kids & Family, ZDF and ZDF Enterprises are pleased to announce the selection of the principal cast members and directors for its premium time-traveling-ballet series, FIND ME IN PARIS. Principal photography for the high-budget international co-pro kicked off in Paris this week with recently appointed directors, Matt Bloom and Randall Thorne.

 

 

Selected from an international pool of multi-talented actors – selected as much for their acting experience, as for their dancing abilities – leading roles have gone to mostly Canadian and English actors. The starring role of time-traveling ballerina Lena Grisky has been filled by dual Canadian/UK performer Jessica Lord. Jessica’s recent credits include Lola, a British dancer in the multi-award winning dance series from the Family Channel’s hit show The Next Step and Lego Friends, and SyFy’s Paranormal Witness. Playing the role of Jeff, Canadian Castle Rock brings a vast array of dance styles to the show, previously flaunted on Disney’s Descendants and Nickelodeon’s Make it Pop.

 

Other cast members include: Christy O’Donnel as Henri; Rory J. Saper as Max; Eubha Akilade (BBC#’3 Clique and CBBC’s Lily Watson) as Ines; Hiran Abeysekera, who brings his vast experience in theatre as well as TV to the role of Dash; and Hannah Dodd (face of Burberry model with Romeo Beckham in 2014) as Thea.
