Do you have a daughter interested in getting into the acting biz? Then this role is just right for her. Rachel Tenner/Columbia Pictures is looking for a girl age 10 to 13 to play the lead role of Laura Ingalls in the film “Little House on the Prairie.”

This is the same casting team that spearheaded the nationwide search for Mattie Ross in the film “True Grit.” And as during that casting call, all girls in this one will have the opportunity to audition. Girls don’t need representation, but must have permission from a parent or guardian.

In case you never watched the TV show when you were a kid, here’s what Laura is all about:

“The smart and spirited middle child of Charles and Caroline Ingalls. Laura is a tomboy and adventure-seeker living in the Prairie Lands in 1870. Laura is the type of girl who marches to the beat of her own drum and prefers the outdoors to reading and homework. She has a close relationship with her family and dearly loves her “Pa” and older sister Mary. When her family moves from their home in the Big Woods of Wisconsin to Independence, Kansas, she embraces the adventures she encounters on their journey. Life is not easy, but Laura rises to the challenge.”
