Updated: Casting agent inundated after Emmerdale cyclist extras appeal - no more please!
ITV's Yorkshire-set soap was looking for cycling extras for Tour de France-themed episodes
Updated: A casting agent who launched an appeal to find cyclist extras to appear in special Tour de France-themed episodes of Yorkshire-set ITV soap Emmerdale has told road.cc that she has been inundated with enquiries for hopefuls - and is pleading for people to STOP sending in applications.
On Wednesday, we reported how a Bradford-based casting agency and artiste management firm was looking to find some cycling extras for filming of the episodes of the long-running progamme.
The main requirement was that applicants should be “an experienced and keen looking cyclist with a good road bike, usual Lycra and equipment.”
The agency added, “basically if you look like you wouldn’t be out of place at the Tour de France, I could book you in for some days’ filming at the Emmerdale village in Harewood.”
Judging by the response to our original article, they will have had no shortage of interest.
