Netflix’s ‘American Primeval’ Casting Call for Rail Road Workers


Netflix’s ‘American Primeval’ seeks Asian-American male actors for authentic portrayal of 1800s railroad workers in Santa Fe, NM.

Netflix is diving into the rich tapestry of American history with its upcoming historical drama, “AMERICAN PRIMEVAL.” This ambitious project aims to bring to life the pivotal era of the 1800s, focusing on the monumental efforts of railroad workers who played a crucial role in shaping the nation’s future. In an effort to authentically represent this significant chapter, the casting team is currently seeking Asian-American male actors to step into the shoes of these historical figures.

“AMERICAN PRIMEVAL” offers more than just an acting job; it’s an opportunity to be a part of a story that honors the contributions and struggles of those who toiled on the railroads in the 1800s. The selected actors will have the unique task of portraying these workers with depth and authenticity, bringing their stories to life for a modern audience.

The responsibilities for this role are as dynamic as they are engaging. Actors will not only immerse themselves in the characters of railroad workers but will also participate in costume fittings to ensure historical accuracy in wardrobe. Collaboration is key in this project, as actors will work closely with the director and their fellow cast members to create realistic and gripping scenes that do justice to the era’s hardships and triumphs.

To qualify for this unique opportunity, applicants must be Asian-American male actors, aged 18 years or older. While prior acting experience is preferred, it is not a mandatory requirement, opening the doors for fresh talent to make their mark. Physical ability to perform tasks associated with railroad construction scenes is essential, adding an element of authenticity to the portrayal.

One crucial requirement is availability. Selected actors must be available for a costume fitting next week and be able to commit to the shooting schedule on Tuesday, January 30th, south of Santa Fe. It’s also important that actors can arrange their own transportation to the set location.

In return for their talent and dedication, actors will receive competitive pay. This is not just a chance to be a part of a Netflix production but also an opportunity to contribute to a project that aims to highlight an often-overlooked aspect of American history.

For those who meet the requirements and are passionate about bringing history to life, this casting call presents a not-to-be-missed opportunity. It’s a chance to step back in time, honor the legacy of the 1800s railroad workers, and make a mark in the world of historical drama. Netflix’s “AMERICAN PRIMEVAL” is more than just a show; it’s a tribute to the resilience and spirit of those who laid the tracks for America’s future.
