When working as a Supporting Artist you usually have lots of time to spare in between takes.  Whilst some people choose to amuse themselves by reading/ listening to music, others choose to form friendships with fellow SAs.  There’s no right or wrong way to behave but it’s nice to hear about people who have met on set that choose to continue their friendship offset.  Madeleine and Ali (below) met on T2, the Trainspotting sequel, and went to see it together when it was released.  Being an extra is a relaxed way to earn some extra cash, as well as a way to meet like-minded people.  When you do something that you enjoy, it makes work not feel like work.  That’s how I feel 14 years down the line…still love being part of Team RentaCrowd and I’m proud of my professional Talent base.  They are loyal, professional and friendly.  Looking forward to seeing what 2017 will bring!
