Over the weekend my girlfriend got an email from GWCI, which is a casting company based here in New York. The notice was in regard to being an extra for Season 2 of The Gilded Age and they are looking for women to portray 1880's upper class opera goers but that's not all! Are you a local from the Albany, Troy, Cohoes Capital Region?

Producers of The Gilded Age have opportunities for women and men and they ask that you be up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccinations. As far as the look they are seeking, let's get more specific.
