Early life[edit]

Raffey Cassidy was born on 30 August 2002[1][2] in Worsley, Manchester, England.[3][4] Her father teaches acting and she grew up in a family where her sibilings were also involved in the entertainment business. Her first part came unexpectedly as she was accompanying her older brother on an audition for a role on a BBC drama. The casting crew needed a girl and, according to Cassidy, she "just happened to be there”.[5]
