Hey does anyone know of any acting jobs websites for free? Or ones with a month free? To apply for work as an extra or presenter?

Hay Ash,

Your better off requesting "The Stage Newspaper" from your local newsagent, or for free down at your local library.....


Working as an extra and a presenter is two different things.

If you are looking for extra work then I would suggest applying to an agency like ray knight or ugly. Pick up a copy of Contacts also or just pop to your local library and have a look and copy down relevant numbers.

if you are in London then the world is your oyster when it comes to jobbing. The stage would be no use to you nor PCR or any of the online acting sub site like actors inc.

You can also join sites like castingcallpro of course.

Moving on to presenting - Unless you have a showreel and prior live experience the chances of you getting any presenting work is nil. Sorry if that sounds harsh but that is the truth. If you are really interested in breaking in do a few classes and then an intensive course where you can have the opportunity to complile a reel and learn to work with prompters and sight read. You shall also need voice classes to work on articulation and the like.

There are no short-cuts. Extras however is something anyone can do without any training. The more unusual or plain you look the better. You need some basic pictures - NOT professional headshots - full lenght and portrait. Make a few copies and send off to the agencies you reap out of Contact.

Don't forget to include a S.A.E if you want the pictures returned.
