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.

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.

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...

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

They are literally lowest of the low.

Does being an extra require all your time and dedication? I thought it would
be like a random ass one time job that people ask you to do when they need to

I played parts in two commercials.
But not because I'm handsome or cool, but because I was best friends with the director and an actor hired simply didn't show up and I was there.

I use to tell people I was in the movie Titanic. Perhaps you recognize me, floating corpse number 27. I would then hang my head down and lift my arms up like I was floating in the water. So many people believed me.

I'm an actor in NYC during the summer and there is SO MUCH filming going on right now. Last week I booked four days of work in a row. And two got me SAG waivers
