Mass media company Disney is reportedly looking for a Filipino or Filipino-American to play a lola, or grandmother, for a film.

No professional acting experience is required, however, the applicant must be able to speak English fluently and is willing to travel to Atlanta, Georgia, where the film is shooting. 

She will also need to be available to shoot for a few days in February, and should also be currently authorized to work in the United States. (Either a U.S. citizen, a green card holder, or an O-1 visa holder).

To apply, one may submit a short video introducing themselves in this link. Disney will be reviewing videos this month, so grab this opportunity.
