The Australian Telegraph is reporting that local talent scouts are looking for people to appear in the new BBC production, which will begin filming next month at Manly Dam. They also shared another photo of the Banished set being constructed.

A BBC spokeswoman said scouts would be searching Manly for people aged 15-65 to appear as extras. The roles would be marines and convicts.

The spokeswoman said anyone interested in an extras role could contact the producers via extrasfilm

Filming at Manly Dam will run for five weeks, as part of eight weeks’ filming in Sydney.
