Extras are simple actors in movies who simply need placeholders and not actual actors.

You see a movie that has a party in it, with like 50 people, but the shots have all been focused on 4 actors in particular. The other 46 are extras in the background.

one time i was like 14, and i was walking down the block eating chips, some lady stopped me and asked me if i wanted to be a movie extra for $20

i said "no thank you" and i kept walking, cause what was probably a rapist or a murderer.

when i got home i told my ma and she told me i shoulda done it.

You look perfect for the part, like that kid who was too young to go to war so ended up hiding behind a rock murmuring gibberish before the main character came over and slapped you in the face so that you could get a hold of yourself. Like they give a part to a really innocent looking kid and kill them off to show the audience the real cost of war or some ****. What show was it?

Why would anyone want 110 bucks? I would have preferred $110

I'm not sure how one would go about it, but I am at least 99% sure that 110 bucks would be worth more than 110 dollars in sales.

And otherwise you can always recreate the antler room from hannibal series and murder and eat bitches in there. Fun & games either way

I will be an extra for GoT this year (second time in a row).

"What you really do" section is amazingly accurate, as this was exactly the case for me.

I was a merchant. They stuck some kinda poncho over me, fake jewelry (painted in gold paint too) and put a basket over my back. The goldcloaks have it worst; their armor is pretty heavy and at the temperatures in my town (which is King's landing by the way, only in the show it has some CGI added) are pretty high so they're practically boiling in their armor!

Kings Landing always looked really ******* hot in the show.

Yep, the town name is Dubrovnik. It is indeed very hot, although this year the filming will be in september and october, so it's gonna be pretty okay, actually. Last year they actually had a thunderstorm on the set but they kept filming and all the extras had to wade through mud instead of normal ground that was supposed to be there. They got paid double the money for that day of filming.
Plus, they've got some really great chefs on set!

Where at? I work the indie film life in Houston... last movie was something called Osprey. No idea when it's coming out though. Played a CIA agent and a reporter. I pretend it's a personal plot twist...

Dammit broken dreams...

Oh and on that note, Osprey was one of the best indie films I ever worked on and I am pretty happy to of taken part in it.

Why do your friend think you'd be a star as an extra?

They are literally lowest of the low.

How do you go about becoming an actor? Youngfag here doing a gcse in drama and I'm interested in becoming an actor.
But how would I go about that?

1. Be lucky.
2. Get representation (agent/manager)
3. Build resume with non-union work.
4. Hopefully get booked on a union gig, thereby acquiring union status + significant pay increase in all future jobs.
5. Network with professionals, actors, managers, agents, etc. I had a 30 second conversation with a manager or voiceover work and did 2 voices for her (Prawns from District 9 and Joker from Batman TAS). Two weeks later, she was sending me up for auditions for Fisher Price commercial as Joker and an Industrial commercial as the voice of Yoda.
