“This was the first commercial set that I’ve been on and boy was it a movie!”
Being an extra can be a very exciting role to be selected for whether it be to appear in film, theatre or TV!
Most TV dramas, films, commercials, campaigns, music videos and theatre productions will include extras in some way. It could be a crowd scene that requires lots of additional people, a walk on part (non speaking) or a large scene, battle, party, street, public place that needs to appear full and busy – all these people have been booked as extra’s!
Models Direct often receive enquiries from production companies looking to book extras, they generally don’t have very specific requirements and acting experience is not always necessary. The client may need a particular age group, look, gender or ethnicity depending on the project, so the Models Direct team will source the ideal people.
