Hold onto your lockdown locks: Film studio looking for Kilkenny warriors for upcoming TV series
Anyone in Kilkenny who has avoided a trip to the barbers or hairdressers since the lockdown lifted, don’t head off just yet.
Despite the film and TV industry having to go into Covid imposed hibernation, things are looking up for the country’s studios.
It appears preparation for a brand new Netflix series is ramping up and filming will take place in county Wicklow.
A spin off of the hugely successful series Vikings, broadcast on the History Channel, is now looking for more extras to come forward for their upcoming filming.
The new show called ‘Vikings: Vahalla’ and Ashford Studios are now casting for extras as filming for the series will be up and running soon.
A spokesperson for Ashford Studios said: “Due to the current climate, we will not be running any more Extras open casting days so, for further information and application forms, please email ‘firstname.lastname@example.org‘.
“The production will be based in Ireland. We are inclusive of people from all backgrounds,” the spokesperson concluded.
