Toronto International Film Festival!

Earlier this month, Raffey flew out all the way to Canada to attend Toronto International Film Festival! Raffey and the cast attended the canadian premiere of “The Killing of a Sacred Deer“, where Raffey stepped onto the carpet wearing a stunning lace dress by Louis Vutton. I have added images from all the events as well as images from promotional photoshoots to the gallery. Be sure to also view the short video from the premiere below!

Raffey for ES Magazine!

This week Raffey was featured as a ‘rising talent‘ in the British publication ES Magazine! Luckily for us, the article was also published online along with a stunning new photo of Raffey. You can read Raffey’s part of the article below, also be sure to click on the photo to see it in full size!

Raffey Cassidy

Worsley-born Cassidy has been acting for more than half her life: the 15-year-old#s career accidentally kicked off when she was seven and waiting for her brother Finney while he auditioned for the BBC’s Spanish Flu: The Forgotten Fallen in 2009. The producers suddenly decided they needed a little girl, invited Cassidy in and she won the part (her brother, who still acts, didn’t. Oops). Since then it’s been one starry production after another, from Tomorrowland with George Clooney in 2015 to Allied with Brad Pitt in 2016 — although her favourite role was playing the young Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman, alongside Kristen Stewart (‘I had a really cool daily training routine of swimming, gymnastics and martial arts for nine months’). The next big deal is creepy thriller The Killing of a Sacred Deer (the cult film of early 2018, FYI) starring Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman, in which Cassidy’s American accent comes from watching the Disney Channel.

The 70th Annual Cannes Film Festival!

As some of you have probably already seen, Raffey and the cast of “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” recently traveled to France to attend the prestigious Cannes Film Festival! The festival is a huge event and takes part over a couple days, including a film competition.

“Allied” – UK Premiere!

Earlier this week Raffey attended the UK Premiere for her new feature film “Allied“, which is opening in theatres worldwide in the next couple of days! As always, Raffey looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet, wearing a classic little black dress along with some cute olive green sandals. In the movie, Raffey plays Anna Vatan, which makes her Brad Pitt’s on-screen daughter! Her role is described as “small but pivotal” by Entertainment Focus, which confirms that Raffey only appears in a short sequence of the film. Nonetheless, I cannot wait to see the film! Be sure to check out the images from the premiere in the gallery.

Raffey in ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’!

Hello everyone, I have some very exciting news to share with you today: Raffey has booked a new feature film called “The Killing of a Sacred Deer“, which is currently filming! Raffey will be playing a character named Kim, we do not know any details about her character yet unfortunately. However, we do know that the film is going to be a psychological thriller, so it is a genre that Raffey has not done yet! I can’t wait to see the film, which is supposed to premiere in 2017.

The story follows a young man that needs to take revenge, a doctor that has to make a decision, and his family that must survive. A psychological thriller with supernatural elements.

Inspired by a Euripides tragedy, the story centers on Steven, a charismatic surgeon, and a teenage boy who seeks to integrate him into his broken family. When the boy’s actions become increasingly sinister, Steven’s ideal life starts to fall apart and he is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice.

“Rust” – Full Short Film!

Today I am more than thrilled to finally share the full version of “Rust” with you! It’s a great short film in which Raffey plays a young girl named Georgie, who is living with her grandfather on an old farm. Raffey did a terrific job playing such a hot-tempered character and of course looks as stunning as always! I have embedded the film for you to watch below. A very special thank you goes to the director of the film, Brady Hood, who kindly gave us permission to share the film with you here on the website.

If you would like to share the film with other fans, DO NOT download and re-upload the film on sharing sites such as Youtube. Instead, please share the link to Vimeo or refer to our website. Thank you!

“Miranda’s Letter” – New Short Film!

If you follow our accounts on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you may have already noticed that Raffey can be seen in a brand new short film called “Miranda’s Letter“, which was released yesterday! The film was inspired by Shakespeare’s play ‘The Tempest‘ and is a tale about mother-daughter relationships, or rather the lack thereof in Shakespeare’s work. Raffey plays the main character Miranda and does an incredible job bringing her character to life! If you haven’t seen the film yet, you can do so below:
