    Should I Work As An Extra?

    Listed are Extra’s agents and Walk on agents contact details. Becoming an extra these days is great, not only you can get walk on parts in soaps and films but you are now officially called supporting artists! There are loads of agencies for supporting artists out there; all have contacts for television companies and can get you numerous walk on or extra jobs. Making a career out of acting is hard work, quite often people take on a job as an extra to get on television and have a bit of fun and the best bit is your making money out of it!

    The Acting Website has here listed contact details for reputable Extra and walk on agents in the UK

    Please tell the agent you get in touch with that you got their number from our site and I hope the best for your you and your search for fame.

    Should I work as an extra?

    If you have no experience working in television and you feel that your C.V could benefit from being fleshed out a bit then working as an extra (non-speaking crowd artist / supporting artist) is a brilliant way of getting to see how television production works either in a studio or out on location and what’s more, you will be getting paid for the privilege. You can earn up to £100 per day working as an extra. But the most valuable aspect of this sort of work I think is the opportunities it offers for networking which could in-turn lead to more work.

    I have seen no evidence that working as an extra can prevent good actors from being offered proper roles. You can learn a great deal from listening and watching the process.

    You can find a list of extra’s and walk-on’s agents on the acting website under acting agencies.
