Texas casting directors are looking across the state for a Filipino actress to star in a Feature Film titled “Yellow Rose“. They are specifically looking for a Filipino female that is between the ages of 13 and 20 to play the role of Rosario Garcia who’s character is described as a spitfire who has become to feel alienated from her Filipino culture and her mother.

In “Yellow Rose,” Austin country singer Dale Watson plays Jimmy Redburn, a down-on-his-luck singer befriends the title character Rose, a 15-year-old Filipino girl who wants to break into the business. Watson will also contribute original music to the soundtrack.

The film will be holding auditions for teen girls in the Austin Texas area but will also be accepting video auditions from those that do not live in the Austin Texas area.

Casting directors for the film are Burton Casting in Texas. They are doing a statewide talent search to fill the role and find the girl who can play Rosario Garcia in the SAG feature film “Yellow Rose”.

In a recent interview with casting directors Brad Burton and Kimberly Williams , the pair stated  “With the amazing talent right here in Texas, we are hoping to find that diamond in the rough right in our backyard.”

About the Film:

Yellow Rose is a coming-of age feature film about Rose Garcia, a spunky 15 year old Filipina-American, who dreams of one day being a country music singer. She spends her days at the local record store and her nights writing tunes with her guitar despite the ridicule of everyone around her. But when her mother gets arrested by the Immigration authorities, Rose must find a way to use her music to keep her dreams alive and enlists the help of washed up country singer Jimmy Redburn and en emo teen Elliot.

About the character:


Musical skills are a huge plus for this character (singing, guitar, violin etc.). She is a spitfire but a highly insecure young woman. Her ambition sometimes gets the better part of her. Even when people taunt her and call her “YELLOW ROSE,” she becomes more defiant. She loves her mother but also feels alienated from her and the entire Filipino culture. She’s a Texan through and through, and her worst nightmare is to be shipped back to the Philippines. When she was a little girl her father gave her a guitar and ever since then she has seen herself being the new Loretta Lynn. While she loves Texas and everything about it, the problem is that Texas doesn’t really love her back.
