background work is an excellent way to book more acting gigs. Though it’s not a star role, background work is a great way to gain experience and learn about the art. Good projects need believable extras, and background actors can make a significant difference. As an extra, you’ll get to see yourself on-screen more often, and your involvement in a project will help you become more proactive about your career. You can apply for work at Backstage, which is a casting agency that has auditions and remote roles.
