Amanda Bell, The Twilight Examiner, has posted a great interview that she did with Paul Morrison, the director of Little Ashes. here is an excerpt in which he talks about casting Rob as Dali -
"For Lorca and Dali, I must have seen every up-and-coming young actor who was available in both Spain and the U.K.
Originally, Rob read for Lorca, and I was going to cast Dali in Spain. But Rob felt so much more a Dali – the combination of acute intelligence and vulnerability and self-consciousness that the part demanded – that I switched, and brought him back to read for Dali. He was perfect.
I never saw anyone in Spain who felt right for Dali, by the way."
