23 August 2013, 07:20

There is another chance to appear in a Hollywood film being made in Dorset.

The adaptation of Thomas Hardy's "Far From The Madding Crowd" stars Carey Mulligan.

An all-day audition for extras is being held today (Friday 23 August) at Dorchester Rugby Club.

They are looking for between 500 and 600 male and female extras to play farm workers from the 1840s.

Filming starts next month and it is expected to be released in cinemas in 2014.

Thomas Hardy - who was born in Dorset - spent most of his life in the county writing novels and poems.
