Back in the mid 1990's when I first moved to the Los Angeles area my first job was an background actor or an extra. It was an easy job they just told you to sit, walk or wait. I liked it but it only paid minimum wage and was not steady work, since I had to eat and pay rent I couldn't do it for long. My first extra gig was on a movie called The Phantom it was so cool I got to dress up in 1930's clothing and walk around the Universal studios back lot for a week as well as see the back of my head on the big screen for 3 seconds in this movie.
Not that you will be able to see me these are the places I'm in the movie 51:50 53:50 104:50 .
