What dramas & soaps are you looking for him to Extra on?

Around this area you have Emmerdale, Coronation Street & Hollyoaks are the main soaps then all the dramas that are filmed around Manchester and Lancashire area for teh BBC and ITV would be worth concidering.

no offence, but he's hardly likely to go down very well at an agency when he states he is only available for working in the midlands. :thinking:

Staggered that you have turned down an offer of assistance from someone who works for ITV!

I will reply to your PM shortly, with the info you require.

Bare in mind a lot of the work will be based around Lancashire and Yorkshire.

I am not fully aware of many if any shows which use extras in your area but it doesn't mean there isnt any.
