  Girls queue for Potter auditions
Updated 21 December 2003, 21.24
Thousands of girls turned up for the open Potter auditions
Thousands of Asian teenagers braved the cold weather for a chance to star in the fourth Harry Potter film.

Girls came to London from all over the UK on Sunday to try out for the part of twins Parvati and Padma Patil, who will star in the Goblet of Fire.

But the desperate teens didn't get a chance to show off their acting skills as it turned out the producers only wanted to take photos at this stage.

The sisters have key roles in the book - they date Harry and Ron at the ball.

Must look the part

The girls will date Harry and Ron in the fourth movie
Potter producers are looking for two Asian girls aged between 13 and 16 to play the parts. They say the girls don't have to have acted before, but they must look right for the part and get on well together.

Rupert Grint, who plays Ron, and Emma Watson, who plays Hermione, were both picked from thousands of kids, and neither of them had acted professionally before.

Potter staff have held auditions for the Patil sisters before, in Birmingham and Bradford, but they haven't found what they're looking for yet.

"We're looking for two girls - if they happen to be sisters that would be amazing, but it doesn't really matter," said the casting director. "We just want two good girls who have fantastic chemistry."
