Tv Extra Work

44
Found 12th Jan 2009
Has anyone ever done TV extra work??

Thought i would have look to see what it entails.

Looks like i will be out of a job by the end of the week, so applying for loads of jobs and thought about this as a option for fast cash.

as they say you learn something new every day ;-)

nephew was an extra-he said poor pay and a lot of messing-not much fun. He said he was pretty much treated like a piece of meat...

If you loiter around Covent Garden long enough some French lady will approach you and try to get you to audition for extra work.

Clue 1 is the fact that you are on this website for about 12 hours a day.
If you are indeed famous I would imagine your time on set would seriously impeed your hukd time

It's not that fast to be honest. I'm only 17 and don't train too much so I recon I could easily knock off 9 to 11 minutes when I'm older.
