North Wales extras needed for major new TV series
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.
