Do you really want to attend that casting call for Star Wars: Episode VII? Really? Then be sure to heed our advice

• Original Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz offers his advice

Say what you like about Star Wars, but you can't deny that it knows its audience. By holding open casting for the film's two lead roles, its producers are giving Star Wars fans a shot at an incredible prize. Anyone who's ever done a ropey Yoda voice, or gone to a fancy dress party in a brown dressing gown, or filmed themselves swinging a broomstick around with dangerous abandon; all they've ever wanted was to be in a Star Wars film. And now they can come closer than ever to achieving that dream.

But if you're planning to attend one of the Star Wars open casting days, it's best to plan ahead. Even the slightest of slip-ups could derail you for good. »
