Chance to be film ex­tra

The Oban Times - - Districts -

WORK­ING Ti­tle Films, the pro­duc­ers of the new Mary

Queen of Scots, is look­ing for Fort Wil­liam men to fea­ture as ex­tras in the epic film.

The film is ex­pected to fea­ture Ir­ish ac­tor Saoirse Ro­nan, star of Ed Sheeran’s Gal­way Girl video and lead­ing lady in films Brook­lyn, The Lovely Bones and The Grand Bu­dapest Ho­tel.

Cast­ing for men wanted as part of Queen Mary’s army will take place on Satur­day June 24 be­tween 10am and 5pm at the Ne­vis Cen­tre.

Piece of Cake Cast­ing, which is con­duct­ing the search, is look­ing for males over the age of 16.

Part of the film­ing will take place in Fort Wil­liam later this year. Alexan­dra Pick­ford from the cast­ing agency told the

Lochaber Times: ‘As an agency, we much pre­fer lo­cal peo­ple to be in­volved rather than bussing in peo­ple from larger towns. It would be much nicer if peo­ple from Fort Wil­liam take the op­por­tu­nity to get in­volved. Ex­tras will be paid for all cos­tume fit­tings and film­ing days.’

If you can’t make the cast­ing, you can reg­is­ter on­line to be con­sid­ered at www.piece­of­cake­cast­ing.com/ be­come-an-artiste.

Fort Wil­liam Pa­rade's sun­dial has been planted.
