Want to let out your inner Viking?

It's Friday.

Filming for Vikings, the History Channel production with a successful three seasons under its belt, wants to find a minimum 8,000 extras to work on season 4, which will be filmed in Ireland from April. Most of the filming will be in Dublin and Wicklow.

The Canadian/Irish production team has announced three dates for the selection process:

Tuesday 31 March – FILMBASE, Curved St, Temple Bar, Dublin 2. 9.30am to 4.30pm
Wednesday 1 April – FILMBASE, Curved St, Temple Bar, Dublin 2. 9.30am to 5pm.
Tuesday 7 April – Grand Hotel, Abbey St, in Wicklow. 10am to 6pm.

The work is casual and temporary; applicants need to be based in Ireland and able to work at short notice. Filming continues from April to December.

Men must be prepared to grow hair and beards, and women have got to have natural coloured hair. You can see more details of the selection process and what the casting team might be after here.
