Becoming A Movie Extra

The term extras can be used interchangeably with background actors to refer to the people who fill scenery to give it a sense of reality. They are the crowds, passersby, people walking on the sidewalk, and suspicious onlookers, who add life to commercials, television shows and movies. These characters do not speak, and when they do, their voices remain indistinguishable among a multitude of voices.

Various reports indicate that extras are stigmatized during the course of their regular work. This stigma is a result of the assumptions of various directors who view extras as non-actors, whose work is to simply fill the background of a scene. It is a common belief in Hollywood that if a director identifies a person working as a background performer, then that director will only view that individual as an extra, and will never take them seriously or even consider hiring them as principal actors.
