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 all kinds of talent 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.
