HerCanberra Team

Who hasn’t fallen in love with Richard Roxburgh as scoundrel lawyer Cleaver Greene? 

Season five of the hit Australian series Rake is currently being filmed (excuse moi but Kath and Kim‘s Jane Turner is joining the cast) and you have the chance to be involved!

Screen Canberra announced on Facebook yesterday that it is currently casting extras (both speaking and non-speaking roles!) for Rake scenes being filmed in Canberra late this month.

Joining Jane Turner this season will also be Anthony Lapaglia so you know, no big deal. Who knows who you could be rubbing shoulders with…

Keen? To submit your resume for consideration, send a headshot and one-page resume through to James McBeth of Screen Canberra at [email protected].
