Extras casting call for M-e TV series Can't Post

'Funky-looking people' wanted: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/...mp;objectid=12342453

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Extras and speaking roles (?) [In reply to] Can't Post

I just found that casting call on another site:

Do you have an overbite, face burns, long skinny limbs, deep cheek bones, lines on your face, acne scars, ears that stick out, bulbous or interesting noses, small eyes, big eyes, Skinny faces, missing bones?, Do you look unusual.
Ages from 18 – 65 MALE AND FEMALE, any Ethnicity.

They also have a speaking role casting call that they removed at the talent agency's request, but I'm not sure if it's a recent casting call or one from before production started in February.

Orcs and Men? [In reply to] Can't Post

That sounds like they are looking to cast Orcs and maybe such Men as the ancestors of the Dunlendings.

I think its for the Gwathuirim [In reply to] Can't Post

Casting the Breefolk back in the day was something along the same lines.

Given the subject matter, we can expect to see Enedwaith in the show, along with its indigenous people.

I was interested to see an article about this appearing in The Guardian (UK). I then easily found it in NZ Herald, which mentioned also that the advert had been withdrawn.
I've done Extras work through that agency in the past; it's better than some others in NZ, and does a lot of advertising for Extras, as they always want new faces for background work.
(Nothing is currently happening in the filming, but it's rumoured to be resuming soon-ish. NZ's borders are closed except for returning citizens and residents, plus a few special exemptions; all arrivals must have 14 days quarantine and two tests for virus).
