In films and televison serials, we perceive a lot of people doing usual activities in the streets, bars, buses, parks, churches in various scenes. After actors, actresses, supporting actors and actresses, it is nothing but the extras or minor characters that are seen in a motion picture. The presence of extras in any film or television projects makes them complete and accomplished. People engaged in background scenes and giving support to leading characters are known as extras. Extras play non-leading roles but they are an important and unavoidable part of all scenes.
Extra casting is not a tough procedure. Like actors, supporting actors and minor characters, extras need not to go through any specially designed audition tests. By giving their details and phone numbers to casting agencies, extras can easily get a role in films and serials. It is not possible for all to get major roles in ongoing entertainment projects. So, struggling and aspiring actors can work with the biggest production houses as an extra and can learn more skills to impress directors and actors. There is a possibility that extras can get significant and pivotal roles in films if they are noticed by production houses of all sizes and types.
