Ringer Spy Laron sends in word on a recent casting call near Timaru on the South Island.
I recently attended a casting session at a local high school, I got measured all over, had to draw around my foot, get my picture taken along with everyone else wanting to be an extra.
Also I know Golden Bay quite well as my Dad lives in Collingwood, near Takaka.
Just read the news post about The casting company , probaly the company that did the casting at the school here in Timaru.
From what I have read so far, my guess is that they would have filmed on top of the Takaka hill where the Takaka gathering takes place each yeah, never been to the gathering my self but I have been over that hill many a time.
