BILL MILNER as DANNY
Bill is best known for his role as Will Proudfoot in Son of Rambow.
He has starred in the film adaptation of the David Almond book Skellig, alongside Michael Caine in Is Anybody There and his most recent role was that of Ian Dury’s (Andy Serkis) son Baxter in the biopic, Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll.
Whilst shooting Sex & Drugs, Bill took on the role of Ben in Luke Snellin’s BAFTA nominated short film ‘MIXTAPE’. DISCO is their second film together and the lead character of Danny was written by Snellin especially for Bill.
He is a naturally gifted actor and employs great subtlety within his performances as well as a knack for comic awkwardness.
Bill is to play the young Magneto in Matthew Vaughn’s ‘X-Men: First Class’ due out 2011.
IZZY MEIKLE SMALL as PIPPA
DISCO is Izzy’s third film appearance to date after 2007’s Tchaikovsky: ‘Fortune and Tragedy’ and the upcoming ‘Never Let Me Go’ directed by Mark Romanek. In ‘Never Let Me Go’ she plays the young Carey Mulligan in an ensemble including Keira Knightley and Andrew Garfield as well as Ella Purnell and fellow DISCO cast member Charlie Rowe.
She is a wonderful talent and we can expect lots from her in the future.
CHARLIE ROWE as GREG
After turns in The Golden Compass, The Boat That Rocked and as the young Andrew Garfield in the aforementioned Never Let Me Go, Charlie joins the cast of DISCO as Greg.
An extremely versatile young actor, he possesses movie star qualities with charm and bravado to match.
Charlie has been confirmed to play Peter Pan in Sky’s 4 hour epic ‘Neverland’.
LIL WOODS as RACHEL
Lil is perhaps best known for her recent starring role as Megsie Green in ‘Nanny Mcphee and the Big Bang’.
She is a real talent to behold, with her impeccable comic timing and brilliant charisma.
The fact that on set she had memorised the entire lyrics to ‘Newport State of Mind’ is a testament to her hilarious nature.
LOUIE BYFORD as DOMINIC
Compared to the fairly experienced young cast of DISCO, Louie is an exception. Found by casting director Anna Kennedy, he is a relative unknown.
His performance in the film is astounding. He naturally and perfectly conveys the awkwardness of romance during those early teenage years.
DISCO is his first screen credit.
BRADLEY FORD as DEAN
Bradley is an instantly recognisable face. Perhaps because of his sterling work on TV ad campaigns ranging from Nintendo DS to the infamous Cadbury’s eyebrows spot, his cheeky grin is infectious.
He is full of energy and carries off Dean perfectly, like a young Joe Pesci.

MARK ELLIS as WILLIAM
Mark is another newcomer. With natural comic talents, theatrical gesticulation and superb voice work Mark is definitely worth keeping an eye on.
His haircut in DISCO is worth the admission alone.
