Last week, we published a short article highlighting a couple of casting sessions for extras on the hit TV show Outlander – featuring a month-long paid trip to Scotland.
Extras need to be Indigenous to be considered. The details are here. The casting agency has asked anyone interested to simply show up at one of the sessions, with no need to contact anyone ahead of time.
Since we posted it, that article has been read more than 70,000 times.
However, it has not always been read too closely.
In the past week, we have received dozens of messages from people across North America (and a few from other continents) asking to be cast in the show. We have received resumés, headshots, compelling human interest stories, and bribes.
The problem is: we are not a TV production company. We did not create, nor do we produce or cast, Outlander.
We are a small internet radio station in northern Canada.
As such, we are not in a position to send you to Scotland for a month to appear in a TV show. We wrote about it, but we are not it.
Shout-out to our favourite message, which included a photo: "Hi! I don't know if you're looking for male actors but here is my husband, he's very easy on the eyes."
And he was. But we can't do much with that. Sorry.
