A new casting opportunity is calling for all Indigenous actors in the area.

Netflix is hosting an open casting call for extras in The Abandons, an 1850s western TV series that started filming in Calgary and surrounding areas this month.

This Thursday starting at noon, they are looking for Indigenous men, women and children at the Stoney Nakoda Resort & Casino. All ages are welcome and the opportunity is open to Albertans only.


The Abandons plans on shooting throughout the Calgary area until October. The TV series stars Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey and The X-Files Gillian Anderson.

If you're unable to make it to the casting call, you can still apply by emailing Classic Casting at abandons.extras@gmail.com. Just include a current photo of yourself along with your contact information.
