Want to be in Case Histories with Jackson Brodie on Sunday?

Posted on Updated on

Case Histories, the popular television series based on Jackson Brodie detective novels by Kate Atkinson, is coming back to our screens later this year. And I for one, can’t wait!

Case Histories
Get on-screen with Jackson Brodie
If you fancy being on-screen with Jason Isaacs* (pictured above), then Sunday is your lucky day.

Case Histories is looking for extras for this Sunday – 30 September – in Edinburgh. And if being in the same room as Mr Isaacs is not temptation enough, the brief is: to be at a party. Sounds good to me!

And… you get paid as well!

To take part email a picture of yourself to joanna.matthews@hotmail.com

More info on Case Histories http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b011whc9

*I believe there are other actors in this show but I only ever notice Mr Isaacs.
