Jadon Carnelly Morris
Jadon Carnelly Morris is a young British actor. Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism is his first feature film. Jadon is also a keen musician and singer. He is very involved with an acting group in Newcastle, where he lives.
Finding Jadon was just as exciting as finding Raffey.
We had seen quite a few boys but none were quite like we imagined Rocky. Then we saw Jadon audition. He had a life and energy and an emotional intelligence to him that blew everyone else out of the water. When we put him and Raffey together there was chemistry. They were put together as Molly and Rocky and the results were brilliant. Both understood the characters straight away and their energy together was so good it was an irresistible double act. We were very relieved.
