Tips for finding TV extra casting roles

If you are a struggling actor, you must have already realised by now how difficult it is to find film and tv extra casting roles. The biggest challenge is to find out about work opportunities since most of the time aspiring actors do not have enough contacts and sources to tell them where casting auditions are being held or which production company, director/producer is looking for fresh talent. And, even if some one does find out about the casting auditions, impressing the jury and grabbing the extras role is not a cakewalk.

Casting agents, directors and producers looking for extras casting for their films and TV shows are as particular as they are about the lead actors. Even if actors in extra casting are not given many dialogues to deliver and are not required in most scenes, the directors and producers select those actors who have some acting experience, who are good in dialogue delivery, have a satisfactory body language and impressive screen presence. After all, they are concerned about the overall impact, look and feel of their TV show and film and hence need talented and capable actors only.

If you wish to improve your chances of finding extra casting roles in TV or films, look for a casting agent. Casting agents work for producers and directors and help them find good talented actors and extras for their films and TV shows. Also, the casting agents are aware of the specific needs and requirements of the film producers and directors and are therefore able to help individual actors and artists prepare for the casting extras auditions accordingly.

With the help of a casting agent, you can make yourself present at various extra casting auditions. The more casting auditions you attend, the more are the chances of your getting the acting job.

You can also post your pictures and acting portfolio online to find tv and film extra casting roles. There are innumerable websites that let interested actors post their acting profile online and have it viewed by directors, producers and casting agents. These days, most directors and producers use the Internet to reach aspiring actors since it is a quick and easy option to find hundreds and thousands of aspiring actors from all across the world.

If your acting profile is viewed by any casting agent or production house and they like you, they would give you a call to know more about you or would call you for their tv casting auditions. Should you want, you can also apply directly to the tv casting roles, extra casting auditions and extra casting roles listed over such websites. Send your acting resume, visit the office of the casting agent, or attend the extra casting auditions to increase your chances of getting the tv extra role or film extra role.
