Despite the fact a very few of my readers are actually in New Zealand, if you just happen to be then tomorrow there is an open casting call to star as as extra in the Hobbit films.
I will definitely being trying my luck tomorrow with what I can only imagine with be thousands of others. Actually I do have some experience as an actor, ranging from those school plays that everyone is in to actually being an extra for a few New Zealand made television series. There was actually a casting director that was always around my old highschool, who was looking for people to star in "The Tribe" series, which I heard was popular overseas but I never watched it myself. Anyway maybe if fortune smiles on me I can have my visage on screen in the Hobbit for a few seconds, wish me luck!
