Post Office Seek NI Advert Cast Members
Budding worldwide web 'screen stars' from across Northern Ireland are being offered the opportunity to win a part in the next Post Office advertisement, this time being produced for the Internet.
Post Office claims this is the largest ever, online casting call.
Following the success of the last advert for Post Office Broadband, which featured Ken the Postmaster (Early Doors actor, John Henshaw) and top band Westlife, the Post Office has launched a competition on Postmaster Ken’s MySpace page where would be TV stars can win a place in front of the camera.
Post Office Head of Broadband Stewart Fox-Mills said: "We've had a great response to the TV ad featuring Postmaster Ken and would like to give customers in Northern Ireland the opportunity to appear on national TV in the new ad to be screened later this year.
"We're already had entries from thousands of people from all walks of life who’d like to find out more about Post Office broadband direct from Ken and his team," he said.
Paul de Freitas of the Casting Directors' Guild said: "Getting a part in a TV ad for a national institution like the Post Office is a truly fabulous way of getting that first foot on the fame ladder.
