Welcome Actors

A Background Actor or extra is someone who performs in a show in a nonspeaking role, usually in the background.

Central Casting registers minors from 15 days old to 17 years old to appear in our legendary database. Every day, our in-house casting directors use that database to cast thousands of Background Actors, stand-ins, photo doubles, and other roles on set, often for the following day.

Haven’t registered your minor yet? Choose your location to get started.

Once your minor is registered, bookmark this page to help them get booked on set.
