Open Casting Call for “Vikings”

08/09/2014

History Channel’s hit TV series ‘Vikings’ is filming the new season in Ireland.

The show is holding an open casting call in Dublin for those who would like to get cast as paid extras on Vikings season 3.

Casting directors for the series are looking for extras of all ages, all shapes and various ethnicities.

The casting call is calling Vikings from all ethnic backgrounds!

Yes, “Vikings” is seeking background actors of different ethnicities. Not sure what season 3 has in store for us but the casting company wants to find some Middle Eastern,  Indian, African, Asian and African extras for the show as well as Caucasian ones.

Vikings has been a solid show for History channel and the dark theme of the series mixes well with it’s visually stunning backdrop. The series is helmed by Michael Hirst (The Tudors). Season 2 brought us a good amount of battle scenes, ambushes and betrayals so I’m sure season 3 will be just as compelling. Screenrant offered up a few pretty obvious spoilers to the new season and also mentioned a trip to Paris. In an interview with Michael Hirst, Hirst commented about what to expect in season 3 and already talked about “Vikings” season 4.

Well, we’re of course going back to Wessex, because we really like King Ecbert and Princess Kwentrith, she creates mayhem, which is fantastic. Ragnar and Ecbert are kind of equals, they can talk to each other and understand one another. When we go to Paris, we meet the French Emperor, whose the grandson of the great Charlemagne and his daughter. They’re both very important, because this is a story-line that isn’t going to go away. It’s a story that will go right through season 3 and then straight into season 4. It will have a huge impact on several of our leading characters.

Vikings season 3 extras casting call

Vikings boasts a very international cast which includes Travis Fimmel as Ragnar, Clive Standen plays his brother Rollo, Jessalyn Gilsig as Siggy, Gustaf Skarsgård plays Floki, Katheryn Winnick as wife / ex-wife by season 2 Lagertha, George Blagden plays Ragnar’s Christian friend Athelstan, Jefferson Hall as Torstein, Donal Logue played the recently departed King Horik, Maude Hirst as Floki’s girl Helga, Alyssa Sutherland plays Ragnar’s new squeeze Princess Aslaug, John Kavanagh is the way too creepy un-named Seer, Thorbjørn Hare played the…also recently departed Jarl Borg and Alexander Ludwig os Ragnar’s son, Bjorn.

    wow, this would really be nice! It’s too bad I have no time, transportation, or social skills to speak of. I’d really love to do this though. But, after I get through college maybe I’ll take a shot at it.

    This looks like an amazing opportunity, but it won’t let me fill out the online form. it will only open it as an image. I can’t make it to the audition. I would need to drive and I can’t afford the cash to fuel my car to get me that far.

    do I have to print the form then fill it out? I’m confused. I want to do this so badly!

      I believe they want those attending to print it and fill it out to bring with them. If not attending, you would need to print, fill out and then email it.
