Open casting sessions for two roles Star Wars: Episode VII are due to take place in London at the weekend.

UK casting agent Kate Bone told the BBC's Lizo Mzimba what the film-makers are looking for - a female of 17 or 18, and a man of 19 or 20.

''We don't want to leave any stone unturned... to find an unknown talent is very exciting,'' she said.

Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to begin shooting at Pinewood Studios in spring 2014, for an expected 2015 release.
