Been blessed with gorgeous red locks? 

From fiery red to strawberry blonde, a brand new TV show is looking for wannabe ginger actors in Ireland. 

MovieExtras.ie, who cast shows such as Redwater and Fair City, put out a call this week for flame-haired extras fo a currently unknown show. 

'We are urgently seeking Redheads for an exciting new TV Series shooting in Dublin and Wicklow,' reads the description. 

It's also an added bonus if you drive. 

According to the post: 'Not all of the locations will require own transport, but some of them will.'

'It will increase your eligibility for days on set if you have your own transport.'

The actors are needed this month, and if you're interested, you can fill out the application form here to be in with a chance. 



There’s been a whole host of crazy wedding stories going viral lately, but today’s one is a true case of bridezilla overload.

After agreeing to be bridesmaid at a childhood friend’s wedding, Reddit user, bridehairthrowaway, received a rather unusual email from the bride-to-be – an email which told her that in order to avoid clashing with the wedding colours she must dye her red hair.

Confused by the request, the woman went to Reddit seeking advice in a post which is now all over the internet.

Referring to the bride in question as ‘Ella’, she wrote: “Yesterday morning I received an email from Ella."

"It seemed pretty standard but then when she got into the look she wants for her bridesmaids she wrote: ‘Bridehairthrowaway, you'll need to dye your hair for the day, I'll take you to my hairdresser and cover the cost.’”

The bridesmaid then explained how her hair is naturally ginger but because the bride and the rest of the bridal party are brunette, Ella was insisting she dye her hair so she didn’t “take away from the cohesiveness of the group”.

Upon telling the bride that she was uncomfortable with the request, she was told “brides get a veto over pretty much every aspect of her bridesmaids’ appearances” and that she had “attention-grabbing” hair.

She asked the online community if it was a reasonable request and revealed that the other bridesmaids had messaged her saying she should obey the bride’s request.

Reddit almost unanimously agreed that the bride’s behaviour was OTT, with users even suggesting that aside from asking the bridesmaid to change her skin colour the request couldn’t have been much worse.

In a later post, bridehairthrowaway said that it was now unlikely she would have any part in Ella’s big day.

She also revealed that since the original post she has learned through a mutual friend that Ella’s groom-to-be ‘Pete’ has a thing for red heads.

“Charles called me and informed me that Pete has a redhead fetish…This all kind of made sense.  I've met Pete a couple of times and Ella always seemed to be in a rush to leave the conversation and move on.  He also stared a lot.”

It sounds like this bride has more on her mind than clashing colours!



It’s what redheads around the world have been waiting for… the ginger emoji is finally here!

The Google Play Store for Android has just revealed their selection of ginger emojis.

Following an international outcry over the absence of redheads from the popular feature, Google have finally decided to include our carrot-topped friends.

This move comes after a petition was signed by over 15,000 people demanding that ginger people be represented in the ever-popular collection. However, Apple has yet to give in to the demands.

There are 16 different types of ginger emojis that can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, including a Ron Weasley emoji as well as a Conan O’Brien one.

Although Apple hasn’t budged on introducing redheads just yet (even after its ethnically inclusive emoji update earlier this year), a range of stickers representing ginger people will later be included in the iPhone.

Ginger people weren’t the only ethnicity to be angered by Apple’s latest updates. Asian people took particular offence to the new yellow emoji, despite Apple’s insistence that this person was supposed to be genetically neutral.
