Sign up for extra work on new historical TV drama
TELEVISION producers are on the look-out for extras to star in a major new drama series being made in South West Wales.
Casting agents are staying tightlipped about the show, saying only that it is a BBC costume drama set in 15th Century Italy.
However, it is thought the scouts are looking for people to appear in Da Vinci's Demons, which will be filmed at the old Visteon factory site in Fabian Way, as well as other locations in Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot.
The search for extras for the historical drama is part of a drive to recruit 1,000 people to capitalise on the increasing amount of TV and film work happening in Wales, with the likes of Doctor Who, Casualty, and Being Human filmed here.

Rosena Robson from Mad Dog Casting said: "This is an exciting time to be an extra in the UK — we are keen to attract lots of new people in Wales to apply now as we believe that demand will continue to grow. There are so many bodies nationally and regionally working together to bring more TV and film production to Wales.
"Being an extra fits in with many people's work or lifestyles, and our extras have amazing stories to tell about their experiences."
Da Vinci's Demons has been written by Hollywood scriptwriter David S Goyer, the man behind blockbusters such the Blade trilogy, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight Rises and The Invisible Man.
It is the first joint production from the premiere cable channel Starz Entertainment and BBC Worldwide Productions, and tells the story of Leonardo da Vinci's life.
Allison Dowzell from Bafta Wales said: "The fact that Mad Dog needs more extras is a sign of how vibrant the film and TV scene is here in Wales.
"Wales enjoys many advantages in the creative industries from an engaged government, its own public service television channel and of course strong commitment from the BBC in both the national and network output."
