What does a typical day as an Extra look like? We recently worked on Coronation Street filming at Central Pier in Blackpool- a local one which was good for us. That one was a late start, around 9am although usually it’s a lot earlier. There’s a lot of waiting around on the Extra’s bus too! What has been your favourite Extra gig? We loved working on the Aldi Summer Advert as they really looked after us and we enjoyed working with the Brownie Brothers on it too! Our favourite ones are always the adverts

Summer 2015 What’s your favourite part about being an Extra?
It’s an insight into all the behind the scenes although it really does shatter some
illusions. It’s a revelation to see and be involved in it all. I enjoy seeing the
technical aspects, and if the opportunity arises, I get to have a little chat with
the crew What are your top 3 tips for people looking to be an extra?
Watch and Listen
On time and reliable
Embrace and enjoy it
What does a typical day as an Extra look like? Showing up in middle of nowhere at the crack of dawn (so having your own transport is
important.) It’s a melting pot of people you’ve never met before but sometimes you do
spot a familiar face. It’s great to talk to the other Extras and share stories. Work on
the day can be 50:50 waiting around vs on set work. The catering tends to be good and we do get a little treat sometimes- we had steak and
chips last week on The Bay.
What has been your favourite Extra gig? War of the Worlds for sure! I played a Villager so there was lots of running and screaming
which was brilliant. It was a chance to let yourself go as nothing was too over the top
