    As the title says...........

     

    I have been working on set on a major TV/Film production set in 1915 based around the Galipoli tradgedy. ( said hello to Charles Dance the other day).

     

     

    The casting company are seeking amputees to be extras in the battle scenes locally.

    Paid work , long days and will be cold!

     

    If you fit the bill please contact me and I'll pass you on to the casting company.:biggrin:

    Last week they wanted a bloke with his index finger missing - some very specific shot required for this project!

    They also want skinny English men and Turkish-looking men - contact Angela Heesom casting if you fit the bill! They do seem to be leaving it incredibly late to find all thsse extras, I have to say!

    As all the kids watch "Australia / Britains Got a desperate want to be famous Talent" I guess they'll all be chopping off limbs as we speak.

    I am sure Tyke could have managed a talkie, the world loves a Yorkshire accent, the likes of Patrick Stewart and Michael Parkinson spring to mind.

    There were some massive open casting sessions but it was not a big turn out / wrong "look" ,size,age.

     

    Most people work full time and cannot get into this anyway.

     

    You are warned that you may be needed at the drop of the hat - only a few of us can organise our lives like that!

     

    Some extras needed are very specific.

     

    Lot's of people do say yes but later on don't bother turning up.
