HBO’s hit drama “Westworld” is looking for 300 to 400 locals to appear as extras when it films in the Ridgecrest area in mid-December.
The scenes shooting in Ridgecrest will take place in the 1890s in a western town. A news release from the Ridgecrest Area Convention and Visitors Bureau said the drama is seeking extras of all ethnicities, ages 18 and over.
However, the production said it has a specific need for Native American performers who might be interested.
To apply to be an extra, email a "natural" photo of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org.
"These should not be glamour shots, and should reflect what you naturally look like on a day-to-day basis," said the news release.
The subject line of the email should read “Ridgecrest Extras." You must also include the following information: Name, phone number and complete size information (Men: height, weight, jacket size, shirt size, pants size, shoe size) (Women: Height, weight, dress size, bust, waist, hips, shoe size).
Here are more important details, provided by the news release.
What should you look like?
In order to get an idea of the looks of the period, interested individuals should Google the 1890s for images of appropriate grooming.
Men can have facial hair — i.e., beards, mustaches, muttonchops of the era. Casters are also seeking clean-shaven individuals.
Women should have longer natural hair that is one color, no highlights please.
When is the production filming?
“Westworld” will film near Ridgecrest around mid-December. All submissions must be local hires and legal to work in the United States.
Is there pay?
The production has stated that this is a paid job, but has not yet released the amount.
