Here is a bit about casting for ‘Good Luck Charlie’ and how it went and where they found the talent for the show.
As Good Luck Charlie is low concept and character-driven, “the actors not only had to carry the show, they also had to have ‘pitch-perfect’ chemistry with each other to make the family dynamic believable.”
Bonnet says Disney Channel executives “just fell in love with” Bridgit Mendler, who stars as the series’ protagonist, fifteen-year-old Teddy Duncan.”She has all the attributes of a Disney star,” said Bonnet.Mendler first heard about Good Luck Charlie in late November 2008. After several rounds of auditions and cast reads, she secured the part in January 2009.
Both Mendler and Jason Dolley, who plays Teddy’s older brother PJ, have starred in previous Disney Channel series; Mendler had a recurring role on Wizards of Waverly Place while Dolley starred in Cory in the House and several Disney Channel television movies. Variety magazine’s Brian Lowry says their careers “[reflect] the Disney Channel’s knack for identifying young performers and rolling them from one project to the next, in a fashion reminiscent of the old studio system.”Eric Allan Kramer, who plays Bob Duncan, and Leigh-Allyn Baker, who plays Amy Duncan, have also guest starred on other Disney Channel shows. Baker says Disney had been “courting her for awhile to play a mom”, but she had always felt too young.
“I kind of feel like hey, you know what? When I’m done with this stint, I’ll actually be the age everyone thinks I am to be able to play the part.” Baker, a new mother herself, was nine months pregnant when she auditioned for the role.
To get an audition for the show, you will need to get an agent that works with the shows production company. It’s A Laugh Productions is located in Los Angeles, California
