    Well for a start before you send any bikini shots I'd make sure the production company is legit. It's very easy for anyone to find out actors details from the internet as we are all registered on sites like this. They could then say they've seen your details and are interested in calling you to an official casting where they would have to inform you beforehand that they would like to see you in a bikini. Unless you are also a model in which case you may have these photo's available but still they would usually just go through an agency. Sounds a bit doge to me.

    However there is a chance it is a professional film company in which case there is no way they would take offence if you contacted them for futher details, googled them to make sure they are who they say they are and that your pictures aren't going to end up in some teenage boys hand.

    And if its a J.Arthur production i'd run a mile!

    HAHA....I APPLIED FOR A FILM AND THEY RESPONDED WITH SAYING I WAS PRE SELECTED AND AS WE WOULD BE FILMING IN THE CANARY ISLANDS WOULD I SEND SOME BIKINI SHOTS. THE COMPANY IS CALLED GROUCHO FILMS AND I GOT IT OFF OF ACTORS INC. I DID ASK THEM FOR FURTHER DETAILS AND THEY STRANGELY HAVENT RESPONDED? MAYBE IT IS DODGY BUT DONT ACTORS INC. ONLY ADVERTISE PRO. JOBS?

    Hi Carmel,

    Have been preselected as well, i assume it means they've shortlisted us and have to audition i'm guessing?

    Well not too sure have looked up the company and they don't seem dodgy they are an established company who apparently have seen have people like Joanna Lumley, Adam Garcia, Francesca Annis so they must be ok?

    I think that they've probably got a list of people for each part and since it's going to be shot on an island there will probably be beach scenes and they wanna see what their artists would look like before they invite them for audition, to save on both theirs and our time. Probably just means 'are being considered for' - so we've ticked one box, now we have to tick another.
