• Depends on the casting of it. I was in POTC 2. I simply showed up where filming was taking place looking rough and rugged.....and ugly...and they said "you stand over here and act drunk." Most times thats the case, others, you have to have a headshot and what not.
  • I've been an extra on 2 shows; I signed up with an agency to do that though. I've never heard of people just wandering onto a set where they're filming and say 'can I be an extra?' it's just like any other job; they need to pay you, and everything. I had to make an appointment to meet with someone from the agency, they needed my SIN, photo, availability, etc. You should look up casting agencies that have extra work in your area and try and make an appointment to be put on the roster.
