Lights, camera, action!

A film and television extras agency is holding an open casting event in Edinburgh on Saturday.

Based in Pinewood Studios, Uni-versalEXTRAS is looking for people to appear in a number of film and TV productions being filmed nearby in the coming months.

The open casting is free to attend and any roles obtained are paid work. The only requirement is that any person attending is over 16 and a half years of age with the right to work in the UK.

The event will be held in the old ‘Internacionale’ unit at the Princes Mall Shopping Centre from 10am to 4pm. Photos will be taken on the day so attendees can be cast in suitable roles.

Those wishing to attend to register on the Uni-versalEXTRAS’ website in advance -

The company has been worked on a range of award winning productions such as The Theory of Everything, Into the Woods Guardians of the Galaxy, Muppets Most Wanted & Les Misérables.
