"I joined Movie Extras in September 2014 and I have to say it was the best decision i have made!! Everyone who works their is so so friendly and totally puts you at ease. You are not just a number and that is very important! They are very professional and always make sure their extras are well looked after. I have been doing it over a year now so the nerves are well gone and I hope for this year coming to learn and do more new things!! I have gained a lot of experience being an extra and know all the do's and dont's and will always give every job my very best shot, I am representing the team and would never let them down. I would like to do more commercial work and be a special extra going forward.. Go for it people!!!"

"Delighted to be part of the MovieExtras team of extras. It’s an underestimated source of not only networking but income and at the same time enjoying meeting other like minded individuals not to mention award winning cast members from Fair City, TRAVIA, RAW, 24 hours to Kill, Mrs. Brown Boys D movie, RTE promo, Charlie, Love/Hate were I played a featured extra as a politician which I don’t know which is worst, playing a bad guy or Politician.

The first major production I started on was Titanic: Blood & Steel where I played a featured extra as a tote at the race trace. There I went on to play many other featured extras such as a businessman on Fair City where I enjoyed sharing the TV screen with Dermot Fahey ( Seamus Power ), Decco Bishop ( David O’Sullivan ), Niamh Cassidy ( Clelia Murphy ) Paul Brennan ( Tony Tormey ).

It’s always nice to meet up with other familiar extras you get to know and the joy of conversations we have and the many friendships that have formed over time. Thanks to Movie Extras for providing the opportunity to be of service even for photo shoot events such as PM Group, Irish Rail, DCU, etc, as it’s been such a wonderful experience to be part of."

"I've been with MovieExtras.ie for just over a year now and it's been a fantastic experience. Initially, I was very nervous but took the bull by the horns, as they say, and went to the photoshoot in the Westbury. It was the best present I've ever given myself. The MovieExtras people were so friendly and helpful. Being on set or location is great fun, and you get to know some great people.

I particularly love doing Fair City. The cast and crew are a very friendly bunch, and don't make you feel inferior!! The young guy Stephen, who looks after the extras, is a pet, and really easy to talk to, which is good if you're a newbie. If you're a special extra, you get to go to make-up and wardrobe, and really get to feel part of it all.

I haven't met any really famous stars yet, but I have applied to The Tudors so I live in hope. I love being an extra and would recommend it to everyone!!!"

"ME has been a really great experience over the last 4/5 years. Being an extra has been a learning experience. The most important lesson I've learned is that you can NEVER have enough layers! Spotting the celebrities is always fun but I like to see how the whole operation of filming works more. So much work goes into everything and it really is about the small details that make or break a scene!

I've been in a good mix of shows. To name some of the more memorable jobs: George Gently, Stardust, Fair City, The Tudors, an o2 advertisement, a Tg4 short but the most exciting thing to happen to me was receiving a call from Director, Declan Eames, asking me to take part in a documentary called Garda ar Lár, which detailed the deaths of the country's Garda Síochána since the foundation of the state. I was asked to play the part of Garda recruit, Gary Sheehan, who was tragically killed in an attempt to find a kidnapped Don Tidey.

I was honoured to be involved in this tribute to lives lost. The filming of the show was great and really memorable!"

As for The Tudors - Jonathon has a great knack of comic interaction with his fellow artists, and great professionalism along with an ability to put one at one's ease.

My best experience was when MovieExtras.ie told me about the film Leap Year which was being filimed in Ireland and I managed to become an extra on it. The scene was in Sinnotts pub in Dublin and I played a Boston Fan. Just before shooting John Lithgow and Amy Adams who starred in the movie had a huddle together right beside me and John Lithgow jokingly included me in their little pep talk. It was one of the most surreal and " Pinch me, am I dreaming" moments of my life!!! I'll never forget it.

Fair City is like one big happy family. After a while you get to feel like you 're an actual local whether it be in McCoys or on the street and all the main actors really make you feel at home.

On other productions I've gotten to work with Brendan Gleeson, Ciaran Hinds, Christopher Lee, Colin Farrell, Martin Shaw and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. So keep up the good work guys and keep those availability checks coming!!!

Been busy with Stardust, A Tigers Tail, 32A, Killinascully, Janey Mary, Rock Rivals, George Gently 2008, Whistleblower, Better The Angel You Know, Triage, Happy Ever Afters, The Tudors, Father & Son - The Return, George Gently 2009 and Fair City.

As an elder lemon no "extra" ! I have had mainly good to great experiences, We are looked after really well, well fed, housed in a bus between takes, taken out groomed and dressed till we sparkle the part, led with kindness to the site where we perform to instructions, sometimes going over and over our Takes, We learn to know the calls "action" and we`re alert and keen and ready, "Its a take" and we can relax or return to our bus.

The days are filled with chatting to others, reading, meeting the odd STAR but they are only US but further up the path... I did meet some but I actually think its a privalage for them to meet us not the other way around, Senator David Norris was funny, Dathai O Hanlon was nice too, Sinead Cusack was an other. The only part I am not fond of is the early starts and the sometimes scary drives on moterways in fog and ice not knowing when to turn off, I now have a sat nav so hope I can navigate better.

I enjoy sunny outdoor locations, of which I have only had one, I am not too fond of inner city street or pub interiers, Dublin Zoo was freezing at below 6 degrees, but it all adds up to experience, not huge money but better than sitting in and watching Big Brother or doing the Ironing.

I've worked on The Whistle Blower, George Gently, (Twice) Raw, Fair City, Hibernian Aviva Add, Science Doc, Aging RTE, some more but can't remember all names, see my profile. "Badly Drawn Roy" The Investigators, rte. science doc. Aging. Cracks

I am retired, and joined MovieExtras.ie, a few years ago, I have been in amature drama, acting and directing. MovieExtras.ie is run and staffed by the most friendly people, who go out of their way to listen and help you. Being an extra on a movie set is so interesting, watching scenes been created, the lighting, sound people, and of course the actors.

My nice moment to remember, was dressed as a priest, hearing Juno Temples confession in a movie "Cracks", she talked to me and was humming a song and I said you should do a musical, she replied, Joe I might just do that. When I get the " are you available " text, I can't wait to reply "YES". 

The productions I a have been involved with are GEORGE GENTLY,CRACKS,LEAP YEAR,HAPPY EVER AFTERS,FAIR CITY AND OTHERS Including an Ad.

I think MovieExtras.ie is a great opportunity for anybody curious about film and television to find out what goes on behind the scenes. Personally it's been great for an aspiring actor like myself to gain experience and find out the workings of a set. I've also met alot of interesting people some of which I've become good friends and kept in contact with.  I have worked on RAW, Prime Time, Happy Ever Afters, Fair City, Leap Year, Podge & Rodge

Extra work is a great way to spend a day, very different and entertaining. Movie Extras.ie explains the process very clearly and made me feel confident and secure about doing the right thing in the presence of 'the stars'!

My experience with MovieExtras.ie has been nothing but that of a pleasure and everyone I have dealt with inside MovieExtras.ie itself have been very supportive, helpful and extremely approachable. I had the great experience of being a double for the lead actress in BBC's George Gently, my part entailed me lying in freezing cold sea water over and over but it was surprisingly so enjoyable;) the cast and crew were so friendly and caring, I didn't get a smile from Jonathan but I did from Lee Ingleby which was just as satisfying!!! every other project ie. Guinness advert, Fair City etc. I can utter the same about.

The whole experience summed up? Fun, interesting and well worth signing up, always a good experience. Thank you x

I have been involved with George Gently, Fair City, Guinness Advert and modelling jobs.

I joined MovieExtras.ie one year ago and I have to say i'm sorry I didn't join sooner. There's always a laugh with the other Extras and I love seeing how things are done behind the camera.

It really is an experience and a great little hobbie in your spare time. I met a few famous people over the last year like Amy Adams, Mark Williams, Ardal O'Hanlon and Martin Shaw to name a few.

I've been on an Aviva Advert, George Gently, Fair City, Runners (Short Film), Happy Ever Afters, Leap Year, Val Falvey TD, Reduxe.

I am with ME only since January this year but have been involved in Fair City/George Gently/Val Falvey/Raw and two commercials.

The funniest day was late into the evening shooting a "gay bar" scene for Raw. There was a group of 12 guys (all straight..I think ;-) and I knew one of them from outside ME, it was the funniest experience making passes at guys and shaking the bum in a late pub...! no, it didn't tempt me... lol just fun Look forward to working on lots more sets...Fair Cityx3/George Gently/Val Falvey/Raw/Guinness add/Apprentice, applebys add.

You never know what is going to happen, and that is the fun part of it all. The experience is so different every time. Re, other extras, it is great to meet people from completely different walks of life. Many are great characters altogether.

It is certainly an education to see how the crews set everything up on all the different sets, both indoor or outdoor, and it has also been amazing to see the final shows etc. on TV and see how real it all looks! I have worked on Fair City, George Gently, Raw, Rock Rivals, Val Falvey.

MovieExtra.ie are a very professional a fair organisation. Their methods of contacting, organising and keeping candidates informed (and involved) bares testament to that professionalism. I can only describe each engagement with MovieExtra's since I joined them has been exemplary and I would hope that they view me with the same opinion.

Abide by the rules and being an extra caste via MovieExtra's is a pleasant and fun activity.

Have worked on Aislings Diary, Badly Drawn Roy, George Gently (two episodes), The Hibernian Aviva TV advert, The Guinness ‘To Arthur’ advert and Val Falvey (all in the last 12 months).

"Since joining MovieExtras.ie this year my life has truly been transformed. I have just signed up for an acting course with the Gaiety school of acting and over the coming year I'm looking forward to honing my skills has an actor. Of course none of this would have come to fruition had it not been for my contact with Movie Extras.ie.

The staff at MovieExtras.ie have been nothing short of brilliant in their dealing with me; be it through e-mail or on the phone everyone I've dealt with has been extremely helpful and positive in every way and for this I'm most grateful.

I didn't know quite what to expect as an extra when I started out but found myself enthralled on set by all the goings on around me. Sometimes there is a little waiting involved, but even then I still found my self in a state of feeling inspired. All the crews I've come in contact with have been brilliant whether it was the laughs with the costume people on The Tudors or the occasional banter with the cast of Fair City or even the history lesson before or march in The Tudors; everyone and everything has been a positive learning curve.

The most memorable moment I've had to date came from The Tudors and naturally it involved a scene with the star Jothan Rheyes Myers. We were on location in a castle courtyard and the king came riding in on his red cloaked horse. In every movement and in every line he spoke Mr Myers did indeed come across has a king, it was truly surreal but honestly captivating and indeed has inspired me to try with all my heart to become as good an actor has he.

I have worked on a Guinness advert, Fair city & the Tudors."
