Cococat, I can't speak to this one specifically, but typically the first callback for a large role in a major feature is a meeting with the director. The director will likely chat with the kid a bit to get a feel for personality. They will do the same or new sides with the director in the room. The director will often have them do it a couple of different ways to see if they can take direction... Like be madder this time or do it as if you are talking to your mom and you are afraid of her... We've even had "do it another way...make it different..." And the kid gets to come up with a new interpretation on the spot.

There are often 2nd and 3rd callbacks too. Maybe a read with another actor to test chemistry. Maybe a mix and match with choices for different roles switching around. Sometimes there is a callback in front of producers or even (rarely) a screen test with makeup/wardrobe and other actors.

And sometimes... They book off first tape or only do a Skype callback!

Part has been cast. The little girl has been in other movies. Don't know her age but I think she's probably 8ish. Dark hair. Good luck Emma.
