If you want to brush shoulders with famous actors, spot yourself in a commercial, or amuse friends with anecdotes – How about extras work?
You have probably wondered if the people milling around in the background of a commercial, television program or film are hired actors or real people who just happened to be passing by. Well, in the majority of cases, they are supporting artists, known as extras.
As the film and media business grows into a thriving industry, a supply of professional supporting artists is needed. It is great fun, you get paid, you get fed, and you get to watch the movie stars at work!
