Pages For Actors & Supporting Artists

This page lists our articles aimed at actors and supporting artists, who are also known as extras and background artists.

The industry views acting and extra work as two different professions.

However, there is often an overlap between the two, and actors can find supporting artist work paying more of the bills between acting jobs.
