I joined MovieExtras.ie in June 09, within a couple of weeks I was called to be an extra on Fair City(which I've done a couple more times since then), really enjoyed being on set, everyone was really lovely, great atmosphere - I'd like to see some of the actors out - takes...some were hilarious! I'd recommend anyone to join MovieExtras.ie... my only regret is that I didn't join years ago!

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!

My first job, on the first day I open the door to makeup and am met with a big smile and a "Good Morning" from Martin Shaw followed by a "Hello" and a shared "Aww Fluck"! when he fluffed from Tim McInerney. Pure entertainment. I love it here. Also being on George Gently, Fair City, Val Falvey, Raw, a secret ad to be revealed and The Tudors.

I'm really glad I joined MovieExtras.ie this year. It brings people of all talents and backgrounds together and offers them invaluable insight into the world of television and the work that goes into various media productions.

I find it fascinating to watch all the behind the scenes action and it's an amazing way to meet all kinds of people; that is the aspect I enjoy the most. I have met so many charismatic, funny and all round decent people from doing extra work. And the funny thing is, I always find the extras have more of a laugh than the main actors themselves, there is just always such a great atmosphere on set and being an extra means you get to work on an array of projects; each day is a completely new and exciting experience.

I think MovieExtras.ie is great. The family joined 4 years ago when I was 8yrs old. I was called within a week as an actor got sick so I had to take his part in "Waiting for Dublin". It was my first speaking role. We were collected by Taxi every day and taken to Skerries. The actors were great fun. I played the young Thomas Lynch seeing his first dead body and loved it.

I loved working as an extra with all the other children in "The old Curiosity Shop" and "Dorothy Mills" and we met again on the set of Fair City. RTE Dents. "Waiting for Dublin". "Learning Gravity Documentary". AIB brocure. "Dorothy Mills". Primetime. RTE Drug Investigation. Fair City. "Old Curiosity Shop"."George Gently". "Rock Rivals".

MovieEXtras.ie has provided me with the opportunity to earn money doing something unusual and fun. It's a great way to see what goes into making a tv production and the detail that goes into everything such as the costumes on productions like the Tudors. You get to meet people from all walks of life and get the odd wink from Jonathan. All in all it's just good fun and a great experience.

Have been on Fair City, The Tudors, Advert for Meteor adds, on a film festival and a car launch.

To be involved with productions has been of great interest and an experience for me. So far, being involved with Fair City, RAW, and The Tudors, has brought me into contact with many new aquaintances.

Being involved with a production, and being called for another on the same day of the shoot has been frustrating.  For George Gently, I was on a ferry for The Tudors, I was on RAW for the new Daragh O'Hanlon comedy all of which I would love to have been involved with. 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.

ME is a great way of fullfilling ones dream. Keep up the good work. I hope to be involved more and more for personal satisfaction.

I worked on the Stardust production for 5 days. Before shooting they chose some whacky 80s costumes, I had the pleasure of an all in one jumpsuit and a backcombed hair do; I met George McMahon and all the cast were lovely. Alan Leech showed up one day to watch his girlfriend Ruth Bradley at work. We spent everyday dancing it was great crack. The fire scene was so realistic, everyone was shaken afterwards. It was a fantastic experience.

I was an extra in Charles Dickins The Old Curiosity Shop where I've spent all day in a jockey's outfit (in the 1800s) it wasn't on tv at the end but it was great just to see how it all goes behind the scenes. have been also attending audience game shows etc..

I've been an extra for Fair City twice; once on location and then on set in RTE. Both times we were looked after very well. I've met some very nice people from the experience - you get to know people from previous times and the banter is great!

As a media student, I find it really interesting to be on set and see how things are behind the scenes! Afterwards, it's exciting to watch and see if you can glimpse yourself on TV! Overall, a great experience!

Since I joined MovieExtras.ie I've threatened, robbed and murdered. I've driven getaway vehicles, arrested criminals, fought prisoners, condemned men to death, been in shootouts, faced down terrorists or ran away. I've met and danced with beautiful women. I've had countless wives and girlfriends. I spent a week at a wedding and wept at a funeral. I've laughed and cried and died screaming, but always miming. I've met some famous people, Pierce Brosnan, Julieanne Moore, Cillian Murphy in drag to name but a few. But mostly I had fun and made some great friends too. I'm an extra.

I have been involved with Proof, Breakfast on Pluto, Rough Diamond, Tiger's Tail, Raw, George Gently, Rock Rivals, Fair City, Documentarys and no budget movies but never in The Tudors, I'm sorry to say.

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.

I think that the chance to be on a set with cast and crew is absolutely invaluable experience for any aspiring actor, director or for anybody who would like to work in the world of film and television. There is satisfaction in being part of a production, even a small part - the devil is in the detail! Working alongside Eamon Morrissey is the closest I have been to a famous actor!

I've been a member now since 2004/5 and can honestly say it's been a ball. I've met so many people and have had some great experiences. Since Fair City has come on line it's even got better. 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.

Just like any business they too have to make money as well.

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".

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.
