If you’ve ever wanted to be a part of a world famous TV show, then your chance might be just around the corner.
The casting company behind the upcoming and highly anticipated Lord of the Rings TV series has put out a casting call for ‘funky’ and ‘unusual’ looking people to feature as extras in the show.
BGT Actors Models & Talent has issued a message for fans who might have some interesting facial or body features and wouldn’t mind being on camera for a few shots.
The casting call is asking for anyone with ‘an overbite, face burns, long skinny limbs, deep cheekbones, lines on your face, acne scars, ears that stick out, bulbous or interesting noses, small eyes, big eyes, skinny faces, missing bones’.
Fancy playing the part of this little fella?
If you want to apply, you have to send a clear photo of yourself without makeup on with your phone number. You’ll also have to have great availability, and preferably live in Auckland or have the rights to work in New Zealand. So if you fancy getting a visa and starting a new career, you can email them here.
The agency is also looking for red heads and those with naturally white locks: “HAIR HAIR HAIR – if you have natural red hair, white hair, or lots and lots of freckles.” The statement added.
The advert also puts out a casting call for ‘long lithe dancers’, ‘stocky mean-looking bikers’, and ‘redheads of all ages, shapes and sizes’.
If you do make a go of it, you’ll star alongside a pretty impressive bunch of A-listers.

Series showrunners J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay said: “After undertaking an extensive global search, we are delighted finally to reveal the first group of brilliant performers who will take part in Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings series.
“These exceptionally talented women and men are more than just our actors: they are the newest members of an ever-expanding creative family that is now working tirelessly to bring Middle-earth to life anew for fans and audiences worldwide.”
