‘Grace of Monaco’ is holding an open casting call this week, looking for hundreds of extras to portray the well-heeled residents of Monaco in the 1960′s. Starring Nicole Kidman as Princess Grace and Tim Roth as Prince Rainier, the film will have a 4-day shoot around Nice and Monaco sometime between the end of September and mid-November. The film is set during a 6-month period in 1962 when Monaco was in dispute with France and Princess Grace was instrumental in avoiding a coup. Click here for more details about the film.
To apply to be an extra, just show up between 10am and 6:30pm on the 29th and 30th of August, this Wednesday and Thursday, at the Studios Riviera (the old Victorine Studios near the Nice Airport) 16 avenue Edouard Grinda, building 15/office 27. The producers are looking for hundreds of people between 30 and 75 years old, and it’s recommended for women to wear a dress and men to wear a suit to the audition (which will consist of photos and forms to fill out). You’ll need to have a Carte Vital, a pen, and know your sizes. The work will be paid, but that means that you will also need to have the right to work in France (so a Carte de Travail or a Carte de Resident if you don’t have a French Passport).
If you can pull off a ’60′s jet-set high-society vibe, and ever wanted to be part of a glamorous movie shoot, here’s your chance! And even if you don’t get discovered or even make the cut, it will still be worth it just for the chance to wander around the historic old Victorine Studios, where the stars once roamed…
