Mena Massoud Details the Casting Process for ‘Aladdin’

Mena Massoud is all smiles during an interview at the Build Series on Monday (May 6) in New York City.

The 27-year-old actor opened up about the process he went through to book the role of Aladdin in the new Aladdin movie.

“I sent in an audition tape when it came out to the world. They had put on all these public casting calls and my agent sent me a request to put in a tape. And then we didn’t hear anything for four months. Usually, as an actor, if you didn’t hear back in a month, it’s usually dead in the water, so I moved on from it as actors do and I forgot about it,” Mena said.

“Four months later we get a call… so from that point things picked up. I did another tape. I flew to London twice to test for it with Naomi [Scott] a few times. And then I booked it,” he added.
