Thousands of Canadians lined up to audition as extras on Jason Momoa's TV show

 The Elgin Centre in St. Thomas, Ont. was packed to the brim this morning with hopeful residents eager to be a part of the Jason Momoa-led TV show See.

According to CTV News, the lineup wrapped around the entire interior of the mall.

A casting call was put out by The St. Thomas Economic Development Corporation almost two weeks ago looking for extras for the dystopian drama about "a virus [that] has decimated humankind leaving only two million people alive and without sight."

The call invited anyone interested in being an extra to attend  a "go see" at Fanshawe Career & Employment Services being held today from 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The call said anyone interested in being a part of the Apple TV+ production must be okay with wearing prosthetics, real fur, real wool, real leather and hemp.

It said actors must also be okay with touching "in a blind world where people use physical touch to navigate their space."

The call also warned potential extras of long filming days which may easily last from 10 to 15 hours. It recommended that chosen cast members invest in good thermal underwear and socks to wear under costumes, which will be provided. 

Filming for the show will take place outdoors, just south of St. Thomas, Ont., on Sunset Drive and will be filmed Monday to Friday, from February until June or July. 

Only those aged 18 or older will be considered for a role, and the positions pay $14 an hour for a non-union background performer with an 8-hour minimum guarantee.

CEO of the St. Thomas Economic Development Corporation Sean Dyke told Global News Radio 980 CFPL that it's actually a very big casting call and that they're "looking for several hundred people."

So if you're one of the hopeful actors spending your Tuesday lined up at the Elgin Centre in St. Thomas, you just might be working alongside star actor Jason Momoa soon enough.
