Share: say that they need hundreds of extras for a big-budget, Sci-Fi television series called 'Nightflyers',

It's currently being filmed at Troy Studios in Limerick.

The Netflix-bound show which has been commissioned for a full series is based on George R.R. Martin’s novella and follows eight scientists and a telepath on a harrowing expedition to make contact with aliens.

It's set to be aired in 2019.

“We are delighted to be casting Nightflyers. It’s a really super opportunity for Limerick and Troy Studios so it’s a privilege to be a part of it. The interest has been phenomenal so far, we'll be casting hundreds of extras over the course of the series and we’re looking for people from Limerick and the Mid-West to fill the roles.

 “We’re still looking for more people, there are definitely some quirky souls out there that have yet to register their interest and we'd love to find them.

“We are trying to keep the extras casting as diverse as possible so we really are welcoming people of all ages, nationalities and genders. No experience is necessary so for people who never thought they would get an opportunity to go behind the scenes of a massive production like this, here’s your opportunity.

“Everyone that applies will be considered and filming is running until the summer so there will be lots of opportunities coming,” he added, noting that all roles will be paid."
