Is this the only place that NTW posts casting calls? I am forever scrolling through and noticing opportunities with deadlines that are long gone.

Hi Naomi, 

Sam, our Casting Director, is putting together the audition days at the moment so she'll be in touch soon with everyone who has applied.

Hello Mawgaine!
I emailed my CV and head shots last Tuesday and I just wondered if there was any development on getting an audition or if I would hear back anytime soon?
