Hi all,
Is anyone on this forum in this line of work?
Im 20 year old male student, looking to become an "extra" in programmes, films etc.
If anybody can point me in the right direction, would be much appreciated.

Any theatrical agent will point you in the right direction also look at the trade papers

Where do you live? I work for ITV and know a lot of the agencies you would need to be with around the Manchester area if so.

I go to Birmingham University, Getting to manchester would not really be a problem, pm me if you don't mind.

Keep an eye out for adverts at local theatres/dance schools/etc.

My son got a part as an extra in "King Arthur" this way (he didn't get to see Keira Knightly though:p) - my daughter didn't get a part because they didn't want fair haired children:x

Will send you some info, agencies do usually costs a fee per year up to £100 this is for photos etc but well worth it if you get the right agency.
Nemesis are good and PHA both seem to get a lot of work on Hollyoaks, ITV Dramas and commercials, not too bad money also, but a lot of sitting around.

If you have any questions let me know
