Katie Morag Casting Call

The much loved children’s books, Katie Morag, following the adventures of a plucky young girl on the small Scottish island of Struay, are being filmed here on Lewis at the moment.

The producers of the programme are looking for a local man to play the small but important role of Katie Morag’s uncle, the Reverend McColl in upcoming episodes.

They need a balding man in his forties with ginger hair, or a balding man with fair hair who’s happy to have his hair dyed with wash-out colouring.

There are currently two filming dates - 1st and 10th of July, with more to follow in July and August.

Anyone who fits the bill and would like to be considered, please email your name, a photo and phone number to kmbackground@gmail.com as soon as possible.
