Important COVID-19 Return to Work Agreement information for Background Actors

  • Don’t miss out on getting booked!

Learn More.

Introducing SmartVoucher

What does the COVID-19 Return to Work Agreement mean for Background Actors?

  • As some productions move towards mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations, Central Casting BG can now voluntarily notate in your profile if you are fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine or have a disability or sincerely held religious belief that prevents vaccination.

    Providing this information is voluntary and will only be used for productions mandating vaccinations as per the Return To Work agreement. Once notated in your profile, please do not provide any additional information regarding this item to Central Casting. If additional information is required, Production (not Central Casting) will ask you for it.

    To update, log in to your online profile and go to the “Key Information” section of your profile and scroll to the “COVID-19 vaccination” field. For more information, click here.

Tech support chat

  • Our tech support chat is now available between 6am-6pm PT for technical help with your online profile, email updates, required training questions (Los Angeles and New York only), and more. Note: technical support and casting are separate. If you need to cancel, are going to be late, have questions about your booking, or other casting related inquiries, you must contact your Central Casting office.
