HBO will be filming a miniseries based on the life of American explorers Lewis & Clark in Vancouver later this year and is looking for local First Nations actors to fill speaking parts and extra roles.Lewis and Clark, which is being co-produced by Hollywood heavy-hitters Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton and stars Casey Affleck as Meriwether Lewis and Matthias Schoenaerts as William Clark, will tell the story of the explorers’ voyage up the Missouri River to the Rockies and down the Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean in 1803.Of course, the production detailing the great exploration of the U.S. west will be shot in Canada. The majority of filming, June 15 to Sept. 15, will be take place in southern Alberta before moving to B.C. in December.HBO is holding a casting call for First Nations actors — men, women and children — on Saturday (April 11), between 10-6 p.m., at the Chief Joe Mathias Centre (100 Capilano Road) in North Vancouver.READ MORE  HERE AT THE VANCOUVER SUN WEBSITE


  1. I always love to see BC being cast as Somewhere/Anywhere, USA. Shows off our scenery if proper credit is given and helps add to the Provincial coffers.
