Tim Burton is an American film director, who is known for his dark, gothic and quirky fantasy films such as Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands. Recently, with his new production Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, he wanted to cast the perfect children for the role of the masked ballerinas in the movie. He came across Twin boys from Bedfordshire Thomas and Joseph Odwell, from Leighton Buzzard, who seemed perfect for the role that he was looking for. With the casting for the role taking place in London the 10-year-old twins did not waste anytime with their performance and managed to successfully bag the role. “All the stunt work we got to do was really fun. I really liked the wires because you can do pretty much anything – from flying to getting pushed over really fast and getting thrown out of a window.” said the twins who are now known as the Hollywood film stars.
