Synopsis

A young girl, Fennis Wilson (Sally Ann Howes), is cast in a film, launching her career to stardom, the very thing her older sister desperately wants. Stardom is the furthest thing from 12-year-old Fennis' goals in life, as she's more introspective and intellectual. When the hit film falls in her lap, it creates tension in the family that threatens to tear the family apart, while Fennis just wants everyone to be happy, especially herself. Ronald Shiner's character (Joe) plays a decisive role

Casting

Thursday's Child was the first film for Howes. It was written and directed by Rodney Ackland, who was a neighbor of hers. Howes auditioned and was chosen for the part after over two hundred auditions of other girls.
