Fault in Our Stars looking for young people affected by cancer

Written by Barbara Vancheri on .


shaileneThe Fault in Our Stars, shooting in Pittsburgh in late summer and early fall, is looking for teens and young adults, ages 13 to 23, who have been affected by cancer to appear as extras.

The production would like to give current or former cancer patients the opportunity to appear in the movie based on the John Green best-seller about a teen couple who meet in a cancer support group. It stars Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff and Laura Dern.

These are paid but non-speaking roles and no experience is necessary. Those interested will be needed for roughly two to five days of filming in September.
