[Welcome to another edition of our Side Hustle Series! This time around one of my FAVORITE gigs I’ve always wanted to try but still haven’t – yet 😉 Peggy Bree stops by the blog today to share her experience being in over 200 shows/films over the past 6 years, and what you can expect to be paid from it all… Seems like the perfect gig for any multitaskers out there! Or those who just want to say they’ve been in movies! Lol… Take it away, Peggy!]
During my university days, I took a regular part-time job at the mall. One day, a co-worker of mine asked if I could take her shift. Curious, I asked her why she wanted me to cover for her the next day, and she told me she was booked to perform as an extra in Degrassi.
Her reply intrigued me as I never thought I could make money from being a film extra. I asked her how I could get started, and she gave me her agent’s contact information.
