History Channel ‘Vikings’ Open Casting Call for New Talent in Ireland

Project Casting

History Channel’s hit TV series Vikings is now holding an open casting call for extras to work on the hit TV series.

According to the casting call, the open casting call will be held on Saturday, November 14th in Liberty Hall, Eden Quay, Dublin 1 Ireland from 10:30am to 4:30pm.

Producers are looking for African, Caribbean, Middle Eastern, Asian, Mediterranean, and South American actors, models, and talent to work on the TV series.

Vikings is inspired by the sagas of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok, one of the best-known mythological Norse heroes and notorious as the scourge of England and France. It portrays Ragnar as a former farmer who rises to fame by successful raids into England with the support of his family and fellow warriors: his brother Rollo, his son Bjorn, and his wives—the shieldmaiden Lagertha and the princess Aslaug.

The story follows a group of Vikings travelling overseas and discovering new parts of the world. It is set around the time of the late 8th and early 9th Centuries.
