Auditions will take place this coming Monday October 1 in Grimsby and Hull, UK, from 5-7pm.

The film's producers are looking for five male actors aged between 13-21, two female actors aged between 20-50, six male actors aged 30-50 and two female actors aged 13-18 for speaking and non-speaking roles.

For more information about the open casting call – including the address to attend – view the adult job here or child job here.

Alfie's Story is a short film working in association with Not In Our Community – a campaign in aid of ending grooming by criminal gangs.

The film follows the story of a young boy who is exploited by a gang.

"Criminal exploitation is an emotive subject so we're very grateful that Thomas has agreed to help us get it right when it comes to casting and working with local people," director John Gilbert said.

"The experience he brings to a production like this will no doubt make this more of a positive and exciting experience for everyone involved."

Thomas Turgoose had never acted before when he was cast in the role of Shaun Fields in This Is England at the age of 13.

Since then he has appeared in Shane Meadows' follow-up film Somers Town as well as the This Is England TV series and Game of Thrones.
