Being An Extra

How It Works

Sign Up as an Extra

So how does it usually work? Great question.

Unlike other agencies, you can register with Uni-versal Extras year-round. That means that you can immediately step into fun TV & Film work that best suits your availability.

In fact, when you come aboard the good ship UVE, you’re immediately live in a database that our casting team work tirelessly to place into paid opportunities in the TV, Film and Commercial arena.

We’ll reach out with interesting, varied and suitable paid work and offer you the opportunity to submit yourself for any roles that have particularly caught your eye via our daily-updated Jobs page.

What You Can Expect

As you can see from our recent productions, we like to keep busy. Seeking work as an Extra is dependent on ‘look’ and ‘skills’ so whilst we are unable to make guarantees, we can assure you that our experienced teams will work continuously to find you as many opportunities as possible.

Working as an Extra can involve very early starts and long days/nights of 10 hours or more. We will always make you aware of the job details before you can accept any role that we offer to you.

So if you are looking for a friendly, upfront and helpful Extras Agency, we look forward to working with you. Full guidance on what you can expect is included in the Welcome Pack that we will send you when you join.

What We Expect

Uni-versal Extras has a reputation for supplying high-quality, reliable and professional Extras. This reputation is very dear to us, not only because we love what we do, but because, in turn, it allows us to offer you more exciting opportunities.

As a Uni-versal ‘Extra’, we simply ask that you maintain your profile to the very best of your abilities. That means regularly logging in, keeping on-top of your photos, and ensuring that any changes to your look, measurements or skills and experience is always reflected in your profile.

That, and that you always champion UVE’s 3 P’s, ensuring you are always punctual, professional and polite.
