If you’ve got the acting bug and you look like you’ve just stepped out of a Mathew Brady photograph, you could be in a future PBS show!
Mercy Street, a Civil War-era drama series, is set to film this spring in Virginia and is now looking for extras. The catch? You need to be “very thin” with “no tattoos.”
Of course, other types are needed but, according to a Facebook posting, the production “is looking for men and women ages 18 and older to play doctors, nurses, patients and soldiers in the upcoming Civil War series. Specifically looking for very thin men (with no tattoos) and male amputees to play soldiers.”
So all you community theatre divas better pack your bags, put on your blues and grays and best forlorn stare and head to Richmond. Maybe you’ll be able to DVR yourself in 2016 on the next public television hit series.
