Working on Movies is Extra Cool

For all you peeps who are dying to break into the "industry" but just haven't been discovered in line at McDonalds - we've got the 411 on how to do it. Instead of waiting around for something to happen, those of you caught by the acting bug have to get out there and show the world what you're made of. That's what Amy Nygaard did and it's paid off. Find out how you too can become a movie extra!

How Do You Become an Extra?

The cool part about being an extra is you don't have to have any formal training to do it. Casting directors look for peeps of all ages, depending on what they are working on and, right now, young people are in high demand (that's you!) But it's not as easy as just showing up on set and working. Amy says that all extras need an agent who will then tell you about the parts you can go for.

lisp or not, i'm sure you're a nice person. i don't even know if you can get rid of this lisp- maybe practice speaking at home, try different movements with your lips or mouth, i don't know. don't let a lisp make you less confident, that doesn't change anything about you as a person. be yourself and be confident.

you really need to have a proper chat with your parents. you're doing really well in school, and seem to have a good set of friends, and tell them that you should be able to go out, i mean you've done nothing wrong and surely should be allowed a little freedom in return?
