Extras are being cast for “Outlander” season 4 in Scotland. The casting agency tried to be discreet with the announcement, but the TV series in question is unmistakably the one on Starz. Meanwhile, co-executive producer/writer Matthew B. Roberts has shared new pictures from the premiere episode of season 3.

A casting announcement by Real People Casting, posted on Facebook, is looking for extras. The post does not name the Starz series, but says they are recruiting for a show with a Highlander and time travel theme, which is clear indication that the show is the one based on Diana Gabaldon’s books.

The extras for should be African males and females between 18 and 60 years of age. This is said to be a “well paid” and “regular” work. The applicants should be legally allowed to work in the UK, and the ability to arrange for their own transport would be a plus.

People interested in applying have been asked to email their names, contact details and a recent photograph to agency@realpeople.co.uk. For the photograph, a selfie is acceptable at this time.

The casting directors may be keen on looking at the faces of people wanting to join the show, as no other physical attributes are mentioned in the announcement. Readers should note, however, that there may be additional screening tests in the future, especially if word gets out that this is for the Starz show, a series that arguably has the most engaging fan base online.

Meanwhile, Roberts has shared new behind-the-scenes pictures from the first episode of “Outlander” season 3. The pictures were taken on the battlefield set, where they apparently had to shoot the action sequence multiple times to get the right shots.
