RecordTV from Brazil in association with Means of Production from Vancouver will be filming exterior scenes for their TV mini-series King David, in Ashcroft, Cache Creek and Kamloops. The production company is looking for extras to work in various scenes.

“We’ve been working on attracting this project for several months so we’re very excited to see it finally come about,” said Vicci Weller, executive director of the Thompson-Nicola Film Commission.

King David is the story of the life of King David, the second king of Israel (after Saul) and the father of Solomon. Some of David’s more famous acts were the slaying of Goliath using a slingshot and the writing of the psalms.

The producers are asking for Mediterranean-looking people of dark hair, dark skin – of all ages and sexes to play townsfolk and soldiers. They’re also looking for men with dark beards or who would be willing to grow one. The ability to ride a horse would be a benefit for those applying as soldiers.
