Open auditions are being held to find a child to appear in the film adaptation of the novel, the Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society.

Filmmakers are looking for a girl from Guernsey to play the part of Kit, who is aged between four and six.

The character is the adopted child of Juliet Ashton, who will be played by Kate Winslet.

The open auditions are due to be held on Saturday at St. Sampson’s High School between 09:00 and 14:30 GMT.

Last week it was confirmed some of the scenes would be filmed in Guernsey.

Theater schools in the island have been approached to put forward girls for private auditions on Friday.

Kelly Valentine Hendry, who is responsible for the casting, said they were looking for a natural and previous experience of acting was not necessary.

She said there was no need to book for the open casting, that only one parent could attend per child and those girls attending should take along a small box containing three items they particularly like or find interesting to talk about.

Kate Winslet still believes in the idea of committing to a person through marriage, but knows living with someone will always be a “challenge”.

Kate Winslet still believes in the “beauty” of marriage.

The 36-year-old actress — who was married to Jim Threapleton from 1998 to 2001 and director Sam Mendes for seven years from May 2003 — admits commitment can be tough but she still wants to be with someone for the rest of her life.

Kate — who is currently dating tycoon Sir Richard Branson’s nephew Ned Rocknroll — said: “I still believe in the beauty of committing yourself to another person and, at least, in the idea of marriage as an expression of that commitment.

“Living with someone will always be a challenge, but you hope to be able to find someone whom you can spend the rest of your days.”

Kate maintains a close relationship with Sam for the sake of children Joe, eight and 11-year-old Mia — her daughter with Jim — and while the aftermath of the split was difficult, she says they are all very happy now.

She told Britain’s OK! magazine: “It’s not the easiest situation being a single mother, but Sam has been very good in helping me with the kids.

“They’ve been spending time with both of us and even though it was hard at first, we’re all doing great. I’ve never felt better. I’m very happy with the work I’ve been doing and I’m enjoying my time with my children, who mean the world to me.”

Mildred Pierce actor Guy Pearce was presented the Film and Television Award by his lovely co-star Kate Winslet yesterday, January 14.

Upon being doted with the accolade, Pearce said, “I’m honored and a bit embarrassed about both events to be honest.”

Miss Winslet then said, “I have to resist killing Guy’s wife Kate because she gets to wake up every day with Mike from Neighbors. I was in love with Mike. I would fake illness to skip school and watch Neighbors at 1:45pm and then the repeat at 5:30pm. I only just found out you were also in Home And Away. Thank God I didn’t know that then or I wouldn’t have gotten a f**king education!”

To this, Pearce got a laugh from the crowd as he shot back, “I hope you don’t think kind words like that means we’ll get to have sex again. You can’t turn up to these things and expect a free ride.”
