'13 Reasons Why'
seeking 'real people' as local extras for Season 3
Glorioso Casting, the organization managing the hiring of extras, confirms to SFGATE that it is still seeking people for the show, which just began filming this week. A representative for Glorioso says they will post casting notices daily or weekly "with needs as they come up" until production wraps in February around Vallejo and the North Bay Area.
Specifically, as the Press Democrat writes, Paramount and Netflix are seeking people who can play "high school students, football players, cheerleaders, boxers, parents, teachers, police officers, coffee shop patrons and many more."
The production asks interested local residents to create a profile on www.mycastingfile.com and "be sure to select SF Bay Area as a location they are available in." As Glorioso notes, that indication is important because "they will not see any notices if they don't do that step."
Additionally, those under 18 will need file a California Entertainment Work Permit.
The hit Netflix show "13 Reasons Why" revolves around the events leading up to the suicide of a teenager named Hannah Baker (played by Katherine Langford), and the subsequent effects of the event. In her wake she leave 13 tapes, each addressed to one friend or acquaintance, detailing the impact negative or positive that they had on her life. The show also stars Dylan Minnette as Clay Jensen, Alisha Boe as Jessica Davis, Brandon Flynn and Justin Foley, Christian Navarro as Tony Padilla, Justin Prentice as Bryce Walker and Miles Heizer as Alex Standall.
After the first season, the show drew serious criticism for what some considered an "irresponsible" portraying of suicide. In response, Netflix commissioned a Northwestern University study to understand how viewers responded to the show, and added a video to roll before episodes wherein its stars offer resources on suicide prevention.
