North Wales ex­tras needed for ma­jor new TV se­ries

Bangor Mail - - NEWS -

THE hunt is on for North Wales ac­tors to fea­ture in a ma­jor new TV se­ries be­ing filmed in the re­gion.

A lead­ing agency has is­sued an ur­gent cast­ing call for ex­tras to ap­pear in the show - and are of­fer­ing de­cent rates of pay.

Both men and women are en­cour­aged to ap­ply, with roles avail­able for all looks and all ages above 16.

Film­ing will take place this au­tumn - with lo­ca­tions yet to be con­firmed. How­ever ap­pli­cants must have their own trans­port as the set lo­ca­tions will be “fairly ru­ral”.

The com­pany be­hind the search, The Cast­ing Col­lec­tive, pro­vide ex­tras to some high pro­file film and TV pro­duc­tions, in­clud­ing Juras­sic World: Fallen King­dom, Harry Pot­ter and most re­cently the cur­rently un­named Danny Boyle/Richard Cur­tis project.

A spokesper­son at Cast­ing Col­lec­tive re­fused to re­veal ex­actly which shows are be­ing filmed, but con­firmed that the call is for more than one “ma­jor new TV se­ries”.

Suc­cess­ful can­di­dates have been promised a “good rate of pay”.

This new cast­ing call comes hot on the heels of the news that HBO spent four days at Pen­rhyn Cas­tle last week work­ing on what was ru­moured to be a Game of Thrones pre­quel. These ru­mours were ac­com­pa­nied by an ear­lier lo­cal cast­ing call for ex­tras over the age of 50.

In July co­me­dian Ed­die Iz­zard shot part of his new movie in Llan­dudno called Six Min­utes to Mid­night, which also stars Dame Judi Dench and Jim Broad­bent.

In June, a film crew shot scenes for a ma­jor movie ver­sion of the Se­cret Gar­den star­ring Colin Firth and Julie Wal­ters at Bod­nant Gar­dens.
