The Mark of Dracula is a Hammer House of Horror tribute

VAMPIRES are wanted for a new horror film – and the casting takes place this Saturday.

Extras are needed for The Mark of Dracula, a Hammer House of Horror tribute to Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. The film will star Thomas Maylott, the make-up artist in the original films, as Dracula.

The casting takes place at 1pm in Scadbury Park in Sidcup. Children 12 and over are needed and are asked to turn up in character – and adults are more than welcome too.

The filmmakers are approaching Arts Council England for funding, and filming is expected to start in June or July.

Scriptwriter Cecily Baker said: “I’m aiming for the film to be PG so it would be inappropriate for younger children to appear.

“But I would also love any older actors or wannabe extras to come forward – Thomas Maylott is 67.

“I’m writing the script as we speak and if people catch my eye then I write around them. I’m a novelist and this is what I do so I’m on the lookout for interesting characters really! The more local the better ...

“If a lot of people turn up we will do some impromptu acting classes too.”
