RICHMOND, Va. — Casting Directors for AMC’s ‘TURN’ are holding an open casting call for extras this Sunday, October 18 in Richmond.

The AMC television series begins filming its third season in the Central Virginia this November and continues through February 2016.

Casting directors are seeking Caucasian, African American and Native American men, women and children who are thin to average build and can realistically portray people living in Revolutionary War times.

Casting Directors said long hair is definitely a plus for both women and men but not a must. They said, if you have an interesting, expressive face, they would like to meet you!

People who would like to be an extra are asked to attend the casting call this Sunday October 18, from 1:00p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 4300 Carolina Avenue in Richmond.

There is no appointment necessary to attend to casting call, but expect to fill out an info/contact form, have your picture taken and possibly interview briefly with a member of the casting team.

No acting experience is required for an extra role, but those interested must have flexible availability, reliable transportation, patience and a positive attitude.

AMC’s ‘TURN’: Washington’s Spies tells the story of America’s first spy ring in the midst of the Revolutionary War. The team works as secret agents for George Washington. It’s based on Alexander Rose’s book Washington’s Spies.
