NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) — A casting company is looking to hire extras to appear in HBO’s “The Gilded Age” series, which is filmed in Newport.

The Newport Daily News reports that Grant Wilfley Casting Inc. is looking for people to portray 1880s kitchen maids and men and women from 20 to 50 years of age to play upper class people of the same era.

The paid roles require people to be available for multiple days of work throughout May.

The company notes they are particularly looking for women with long, natural-colored hair, and men with hair of two inches in length.

No acting experience is required.
