WHAT IS AN EXTRA?

An extra is a someone who fills in the background of a TV, film show, movie or commercial when the cameras are rolling. It would look pretty weird for two actors to have a conversation on an empty sidewalk, so movie extras get cast to make everything look more natural.

Extras are almost never given lines to say, but if they are, they technically become actors or "featured extras" while they are saying the lines (examples of extras’ lines: “Hi, how are you,” “What are you doing!” and ” I Thank you”).

Extras are the folks who walk by on the sidewalk while the stars are being fabulous, or stand around behind the the main actors holding a cigarette while the stars are doing their thing. It is pretty exciting if you like being around the actors and the movie extra industry.

The record for the biggest number of extras is the 1982 film Gandhi.
