Written by the producer of House of cards, Piece of Cake casting are now seeking bearded men to apply to work on days of filming.

It is the second time in as many months that men with beards have been asked to audition for a role, with a Robert the Bruce film also appealing for bearded actors in a shoot in Glasgow.

Casting agent Megan Wheatley told STV: “Some of the filming for Mary Queen of Scots is taking place around the Edinburgh area in September and we would love to involve local people as the film is about their history.

“Ideally, we are after men, with long hair and beards a bonus.”
