CW’s ‘The Originals’ African Americans Casting Call for an 1800’s Duel Scene

Project Casting

Tammy Smith Casting- Atlanta recently posted the following casting call for background extras to work on CW’s “The Originals” filming in Atlanta area.

Casting directors are seeking extras to work on an upcoming scene on the Vampire Diaries spin off, “The Originals”.

Recently, Ian Somerholder from ‘The Vampire Diaries’ commented on ‘The Originals’ series and he said he is “Not Thrilled”.

“The Originals” is taking several “The Vampire Diaries” actors including Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies and Claire Holt, and following their adventures in New Orleans. Somerhalder said he’s worried about who The CW will find to take their places on “The Vampire Diaries.” “Are they gonna be good? Because it’s The CW, and everyone has to be pretty, and there aren’t a lot of pretty people that can act well,” he said.

But, if you are interested in being a part of this series, see the following casting call information for more details:
