So, you’re a fan of the Emmy-winning series “Westworld.” Well’ we’ve got some good news for you — there’s a chance to be part of the show right here in Utah.

The HBO show, which is shot in southern Utah, is looking for extras to fill out the 1890s-era Western town where it’s set, Fox 13 reported. Extras are needed in mid- to late October, once filming for the show’s second season starts up, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

People of all ethnicities are needed, Fox 13 reported. However, some specific extras needed for the show include Native American and Chinese men and women, as well as military types, the Tribune reported.

Otherwise, the casting agency that’s looking for extras — Bill Dance Casting — says men must have 1890s-appropriate facial hair or be clean-shaven, the Tribune reported. Women must have long, natural hair that’s a single color. 

Though specifics about pay weren’t available, Fox 13 reported that a news release related to the casting said people will be compensated for their time.


Anyone who’s 18 or older and interested in being part of the show should contact [email protected] with a few pieces of information, according to the Tribune. That includes:

  • Women: Height and weight; bust, waist and hips measurements; dress and shoe sizes.
  • Men: Height and weight; pants waist and length; jacket, shirt and shoe sizes.
