I worked on Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and loved it. It was my first ever supporting artist work in the UK. Thank you Uni-versal Extras for this opportunity!


Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald

I got to do my first ever extra role as a Dock Worker on the set of Fantastic Beasts at Warner Bros Studios. I found the whole crew to be exceptional, professional and fantastic. It felt like negative zero on set with arctic winds that tested everyone's resilience, but we all worked together as a team to make sure everyone stayed warm.
