  • I was one of the tavern drinkers in the fight scene. It was my first time on a set and I learned so much during the day. I even got to stand next to Christopher Marlowe. Thank you Uni-versalEXTRAS!

  • Wow... what an amazing experience I had back in February at Dragon Studios, Bridgend. I was a stand-in for Ewen Bremner, playing Richard Topcliffe. I learned so much during those three weeks on my first ever SA job. Thank you Uni-versalEXTRAS!
