A Leap of Faith: The Gabby Douglas Story Speaking Role Casting Call


The Alchemy of Acting in Atlanta, Georgia will be holding an Open Casting Call for the upcoming Lifetime Movie, “A Leap of Faith: The Gabby Douglas Story”.

The Alchemy of Acting recently posted a casting call for the lead role in the upcoming Lifetime project, “A Leap of Faith: The Gabby Douglas Story”.

During the summer of 2013, we all watched Gabrielle Douglas make history as the first woman of color and the first African-American gymnast to become the individual all-around Olympic champion. And now, we’ve just learned that Hollywood producers are bringing the story of “Gabrielle Douglas ” to life as a TV movie!

The movie starts shooting September 9th all the way through the end of October….in Winnipeg, Canada.  So the release date may be before the year is over (YBF).

“Gabrielle Douglas was born on December 31, 1995, in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Gabby Douglas began formal gymnastics training at 6 years old and won a state championship by the time she was 8.

She moved away from her hometown and family in 2010 to pursue training with a world-renowned Olympic trainer, and was selected to compete with the U.S. Olympic women’s gymnastics team at the 2012 Summer Olympics. There, Douglas became the first African American to win gold in the individual all-around event.”

    I’m under 5’2 but was told I’m too tall. What is the actual height requirement? This casting notice isn’t quite right.
