History channel’s Vikings season 5 open casting call.
Do you love the show Vikings? Have you ever dreamed of joining the show’s cast and crew? If so, then I have great news for you. Casting directors are holding an open casting call for Vikings season 5 in Dublin, and Wicklow, Ireland.
Casting directors are holding several open casting calls starting Monday, May 23rd through Wednesday, May 25th throughout Ireland. Casting directors are looking for background extras to work on Season 5 of Vikings, the critically acclaimed 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 shield maiden Lagertha and the princess Aslaug.
