  • Central Casting University
    Central Casting Los Angeles is pleased to offer enrichment classes for background actors who are registered with us and in good standing. In these two-hour sessions, you will have the opportunity to hear from and participate in a Q&A with an industry professional guest speaker.

    Central Casting 101 – The Background Actor covers the role of the background actor, what is expected on the set, and how to do the job like a professional in an interactive format.

    Central Casting 201 – The Stand-In presents an overview, including the technical side, of the stand-in actor role in an interactive format.

    The classes are offered at our Burbank Office on select days from 3:00-5:00pm. Due to the popularity of these sessions, the first 75 people who arrive will receive a pass to attend. Please do not wait in line if all passes are given out, but come back on another scheduled day. Attendance is voluntary and both new and experienced background actors will benefit from the information. You are welcome to attend the training classes once every six months.

    Please check back frequently for schedule updates.
