Casting began well back during the writing stages when after continual pestering, I realized that the blonde brutes bugging us were in fact the Aliens. Even before that, Justus had, by fiat, given one of the characters his own name in an act that might be likened to a dog marking its territory.

Come to think of it, I wonder if the three were in fact in cahoots; the photo on the right was Alien Two marching Justus to ... that was two years ago!

More recently, it occurred to me that the magnificent Tony Doupe - who played Officer Lowry in Butterfly Dreaming, my feature debut - was indeed a Catburglar. Was indeed THE Catburglar. Don't worry that you can't see his face in the photo on the left; he'll be wearing a balaclava over his head throughout The Squirrel King.

The great excitement for this week though is the casting session for Robin, the center of our story, the woman who desperately wants to be part of something important. We've narrowed down 500 submission and will be auditioning this weekend! Stay tuned for the excitement.

In the meantime our intergalactic stars are adjusting well to pampering earth-starlet-style.
