What is an extra?
Have you ever watched a TV series & noticed the people walking, sitting, chatting, driving, coughing or reading a paper in the background of the scene? Well those people get paid and so could you!
How much can I make?
£70-£130 a day, with bonuses for things like providing your own costume or doing a ‘walk-on’. Overtime is paid at around £11 an hour.
Where do I find the jobs?
Do I need a drama A-level/degree?
No, but it might help getting other speaking roles, which are higher paid.
Is this the best I can do?
Tv/Film Extra work gives you a step in the door, you experience what happens when the cameras are on & off. It’s relatively stress free and fair easy work.
