Chance to join the cast of Neighbours
IF YOU have ever wanted to appear on the popular soapie Neighbours, here is your chance.
The cast and crew of Neighbours will be arriving in Port Douglas this weekend to film a series of episodes and producers are looking for 120 locals to appear as background extras.
Extras are required for four to six-hour slots between October 17-21 at a variety of locations around Port Douglas.
Guest star of the show Lincoln Lewis cannot wait to get to the region and mingle with the locals.
Having recently completed movies 33 Postcards with Guy Pearce and Bait 3D and wrapped up television shows SLiDE and the Underbelly Razor series, Lincoln is ready to relax in between filming.
“Any time off I will cruise down to the beach,” he said.
“I can’t wait to get up there and enjoy that super laidback Queensland lifestyle I grew up with.
“I really want to go back to the Great Barrier Reef and also see the Daintree rainforest and check out the Mossman Gorge.”
The working holiday with Neighbours will see the 23-year-old actor playing the character Dominic Emmerson, a marine biologist who is a bit of a Casanova until he meets good girl Kate Ramsay (Ashleigh Brewer).
“As soap story lines go, he is mucking around being a typical lad but he sees something different in Kate, the really nice chick and he wants to get to know her,” Lincoln said.
“She sees his smart-arse exterior but underneath he is also a really nice guy.”
But locals might find it hard to steal the star’s heart as Lincoln is in a relationship with Rhiannon Fish, who plays April on Home and Away.
“It doesn’t mean to say I can’t say a polite hello and hang out with whoever is willing to hang out with me, I am dead keen to meet the locals,” Lincoln said.
“It seems the further north you go the more welcoming and friendly and genuinely nice people you meet.”
Filming starts on Monday around Port Douglas including Macrossan St, Four Mile Beach and the Marina.
To put your hand up for a background extra role, email a photo of yourself and contact details to casting agent Ranjini Rusch at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
