Thousands of girls queued to audition in east London on Saturday for a chance to co-star in the planned Harry Potter spin-off movie "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them".

數千名女孩週六在東倫敦排隊試鏡,為爭取合演籌備中的哈利波特外傳電影「怪獸與牠們的產地」。

Whoever gets the role will star alongside Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne, who will portray "magizoologist" Newt Scamander.

得到角色的女孩將與奧斯卡金像獎得主艾迪.瑞德曼一起演出,艾迪.瑞德曼將扮演奇獸飼育學家紐特.卡曼德。

Some girls queued from as early as 3 a.m. for the auditions, having traveled from all over Britain to the ExCel exhibition centre in London’s Docklands, in the hope of entering J.K. Rowling’s world of magic in the eagerly anticipated film.

部份女孩為了試鏡,早上凌晨三點就開始排隊,她們從英國各地湧入倫敦碼頭區倫敦展覽中心,希望能在這部眾所期盼的電影中進入J.K.羅琳的魔法世界。

Movie group Warner Bros and the film makers are looking for a girl aged between eight and 12 to take on the role of Modesty, a character they describe as "a haunted young girl with an inner strength and stillness".

電影集團華納兄弟與製片商在尋找一名8到12歲的女孩,飾演莫蒂絲提的角色,該角色被詮釋為「內在堅定與平靜的多愁善感少女。」

The story, set in New York and based on Rowling’s book of the same name featuring dozens of imaginary creatures such as the Billywig, Flobberworm and Snidget, is the author’s first screenplay.

此故事的場景設定在紐約,改編自羅琳的同名書籍,主打數十種魔幻生物,如比利威格蟲、黏巴蟲與金探鳥,是作者的首部電影劇本。
