How can I get extras work in the U.K. without paying any money up front?
I have looked at agencies on the internet and they always charge a fee of around £60. I am suspicious, as I beleive that agencies should make money when the client gets a job. Where and who should I contact in order to get a extras work on film or t.v. sets?
