Posted by: William on Monday 6th July 2015
Open Casting for Film & TV Extras

Uni-versalEXTRAS are holding Open Castings for people to register as Film & TV Extras in various locations across the UK where productions are soon to begin filming. Read about how to get involved and find out about Castings near you!


Open Registration Days for Film & TV Extras: IMPORTANT INFO

You should Not Attend if you are already a Fully Activated Extra with Uni-versalEXTRAS

You should only attend an Open Casting if you are new to Uni-versalEXTRAS or if your profile with us is NOT activated (i.e. if you are not able to apply for jobs on the website or if you do not have any suitable photos uploaded). If you are already a member, you are already being considered for any roles that you are suitable for in your area.

What you need to do before attending an Open Casting

Go to our homepage and click Register as an Extra. You will be taken step-by-step to complete a profile - please stop when you get to the 'Photos' section. When you attend one of the Open Casting we will take your photos for the website and you will get a FREE 1 YEAR LISTING as an Extra with Uni-versalEXTRAS.

You don't need to bring anything with you to the Casting apart from yourself!
