Guardians of the Galaxy


Peter Quill, half human and half alien, is the target of a galaxy wide manhunt after stealing a mysterious orb from the far reaches of outer space. To protect the world, Peter must assemble a team to save the world... the Guardians of the Galaxy!

How was Uni-versalEXTRAS Involved?

Uni-versalEXTRAS was the dual Extras agency on the Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel feature film. This movie had diverse EXTRAS and supporting artistes to play a variety of species native to the different planets and galaxies portrayed in the film.

Many of the parts required the artistes to be fitted with 'alien' contact lenses, false teeth and other prosthetics to really bring the film to life. Uni-versalEXTRAS also cast doubles and stand-ins for the main actors such as Chris Pratt.

When watching Guardians of the Galaxy, keep your eyes peeled for...

Citizens, Miners, Prisoners and Guards.

  • In 30 years time, they will talk about the Guardians Of The Galaxy like they do Star Wars. It's a near perfect movie for entertainment. I played one of the Kyln Prisoners, thanks to Uni-versalEXTRAS, Marvel Studios and Disney.

  • Now I can tell my daughter, (when she's old enough) "Daddy was in space with the 'Guardians of the Galaxy'!" and I have the team at Uni-versal Extras, Marvel and Disney studios to thank.

  • I played a miner on the planet Knowhere. It was fantastic to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe! 

    -David  |  Guardians of the Galaxy

  • I play the role of a miner on a planet called Knowhere and apparently also feature in the viral video entitled -'Galaxy Gateways'.
