  • I was delighted to play the mayor in Brief Encounters and the food on set was excellent. 

    -George  |  Brief Encounters

  • I had a wonderful time on Brief Encounters! I did quite a few days working as a mother and an Ann Summers model alongside Sophie and Sharon. Thanks to Uni-versal Extras for putting me forward!  

    -Nicola-Jayne  |  Brief Encounters

  • Thank you for putting me forward. I ended up working three days on set and although it was hard work, it was throughly enjoyable. 

    -Cheryl  |  Brief Encounters

  • This was one of my first extra roles. I played a tuxedoed guest at a cocktail party, which was filmed in an amazing art deco house in Sheffield. It was great to be in a scene alongside one of my favourite actresses, Dame Penelope Wilton, and it was fascinating to see a series being filmed first hand. Thanks for finding me this great part!
