A casting company has put out a call for extras for shooting around the south west and Bristol which can only mean one thing – POLDARK!

Series 4 is about to begin filming around the region so we may see Aidan Turner et al back in Frome, Wells, Bottle Yard Studios in Bristol and who knows where this autumn?

Series 4 sees Ross Poldark taking on London as a Cornwall MP, so where will the location scouts have in mind for the city as it would have looked in the late 1700s/early 1800s?

Film Cast Cornwall & SW put out a call on Bank Holiday Monday to those already registered with it and was asking for “lean and long haired Cornwall based extras who are registered and have worked before with FCC&SW will be needed again in September”.

Now 2020 Casting is looking for people who have easy access to the south west to come on board for “a returning TV series”.

Perhaps you have relatives in Cornwall who you could stay with during filming?

They need males and females over 16 years old, who are lean and don’t have dyed/modern hairstyles.

Men must have long hair at least 3 inches on top and 1 inch on the sides. (Beards are desirable)

Women will need to have shoulder length or longer hair and it must be of a natural colour – no dyes.

If you are already registered with 2020Casting then you will automatically be shortlisted – but you must ensure that photos and measurements are all up to date.

If you are NOT on 2020’s books, register at and they will be in touch with you if you are suitable.

Dame Maggie Smith*, Aidan Turner, Jenna Coleman, Charlie Brooker and Rowan Atkinson have all joined the star-studded line-up for the BFI & Radio Times Television Festival, added to a bill that already includes Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss, Michael Palin, Julie Walters and Keeley Hawes (details of previously announced events here).

The three-day event – taking place from 7th-9th April at BFI Southbank and BFI IMAX – will see Downton Abbey actress Maggie Smith make a rare on-stage appearance on Saturday 8th April to reflect on her life on stage and screen.

Also appearing on Saturday is director Sir Ridley Scott who will be in conversation following a screening of 1970s film The Author of Beltraffio, directed by his late brother Tony Scott and starring Doctor Who’s Tom Baker, which has been rediscovered by the BFI National Archive.

The festival will include plenty of panel sessions around Britain’s biggest shows, beginning with Maigret which opens proceedings on Friday 7th April with a session featuring star Rowan Atkinson and executive producer John Simenon – son of original Maigret creator Georges Simenon.

The Crown will take centre stage on Saturday 8th April with actress Claire Foy – who plays Queen Elizabeth – joined by executive producer Stephen Daldry to offer an insight into the making of the lavish Netflix drama.

Also on Saturday, Victoria stars Jenna Coleman and Tom Hughes will take a break from their busy schedules filming series two to sit down for a chat with creator Daisy Goodwin and executive producer Damien Timmer about ITV’s hit Sunday night drama.

Facing off against Victoria in the schedules last year was Poldark which also boasts a starry panel, with leading man Aidan Turner reuniting with writer Debbie Horsfield and executive producer Timmer (who heads up Mammoth Screen) to give fans a sneak peek of series three.

And completing Saturday’s jam-packed line-up are events featuring the creator and cast of Line of Duty, the behind-the-scenes stars of Strictly Come Dancing and Countdown’s Susie Dent.

Sunday 9th April will welcome another host of famous faces, with Charlie Brooker in conversation, discussing his work on Screenwipe, Dead Set and – of course – Black Mirror.

The last day of the festival will also see Doctor Who executive producer Brian Minchin joined by cast members to talk about filming the hit series, with clips offering a sneak peek at the 10th run – the final outing for showrunner Steven Moffat and star Peter Capaldi.

In addition, Sunday will see a discussion on the compelling sound of Sherlock, with Mark Gatiss, exec producer Sue Vertue and composers David Arnold and Michael Price all in conversation.

Susanne Bier and the team behind last year’s smash hit The Night Manager will reunite to explain how they created water-cooler TV, while Last Leg host Adam Hills will join athletes Libby Clegg and Susie Rogers to talk about how Channel 4’s Paralympics coverage has changed public attitudes towards those with physical differences. And comedians Lee Mack and Barry Cryer will come together to debate their craft and comedies past, present and future.

The three-day festival will also include a series of masterclasses, with Bafta winner Jack Thorne speaking about his work creating the likes of National Treasure, Skins and his forthcoming adaptation of His Dark Materials, and Joe Wicks (aka The Body Coach) joining the Hemsley Sisters to discuss How to Become a Social Media Star.

Families with young fans of CBBC football drama Jamie Johnson will be able to watch two brand new episodes on Sunday 9th April, followed by a panel with writers, cast, crew and a special celebrity guest. This event joins a programme of family-friendly sessions with Jacqueline Wilson, Michael Morpurgo and the makers of Wallace and Gromit also appearing (more details here).

DC’s Justice League Dark will soon be seen in a live-action format, which is good news for WB/DC because that would give the studio a chance to explore DC’s supernatural side.

With the likes of John Constantine, Zatanna, Deadman, Etrigan the demon and Swamp Thing coming together to form the team, it would be interesting to see who gets to play which character.

Though no information has been made available yet, here are some actors who could be a part of the team in the movie.

Aidan Turner could make a brilliant Etrigan in the movie. The demon is considered as one of the most powerful characters in the DC Universe who can go up against Superman and Wonder Woman.

He also has a human side that goes by the name Jason Blood. In the movie, Turner could play the role of Jason who willingly can turn into Etrigan the Demon. Jason was a knight whose body was merged with the monster in the comics.

Since Aidan Turner is the lead star of Poldark, playing an old character like a knight would be easy for him.
