Seven Casting, one of the oldest and largest northern Extras agencies is looking for new artists for extras and walk-on roles for several popular period dramas we have scheduled for the first half of this year…

As an agency we are well known for Period Dramas. Our list of credits is constantly growing and we are often quoted as the ‘go to’ agency in the North and Midlands for the genre.

We have seven scheduled for the first half of this year – two of which are very well known but at this stage we are unable to name them!

We are looking for new talent to fill roles as Extras and Walk-ons. The sheer volume of productions we are undertaking has meant that we have more work than we have people! In addition the highly specific requirements of period dramas mean that roles can be harder to fill than those found in conventional dramas.

We are looking for people who would be interested in work in Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, York and some North Midlands locations. You DO NOT have to come from there but you must be happy to travel to them. Even for early call times! Please note that travel expenses are NOT covered.

We are looking for men and women aged 16 years of over. The specifics are below.

The work can be regular (not full time) for those who are interested, or less regular, depending on your situation. It’s up to you what you undertake.

This is some of the most highly sought after work in the industry, as such we are only looking for those with a genuine interest and passion for period dramas.

All work is paid (equity rate or higher).

Those interested can also take part in any other projects the agency is undertaking – of which there is plenty!

Once you complete your application our team will review it and contact you if you are successful. Successful applicants will be invited to the office to meet the team. We will go through everything and get you started.
