People often ask if they have what it takes to be a background extra. Here’s a perfect example of how easy it can be. Just last week hundreds of people were sent as paid audience members for a new TV series. Now, that doesn’t sound hard does it. It’s really not that much different being a background extra. You just need to listen to instructions and follow them. The main qualification is having a flexible work or study schedule so you can attend on the shoot dates. The rest of it is literally like a walk in the park.
