I haven’t done that, but I’ve been a background extra in film and television, and I also used to be an assistant director. Honestly, do it once for fun, nothing ventured nothing gained! It will likely be a lot of sitting around and waiting to see if they need you, but hopefully they’ll have an CCTV so you can watch the show from the other area while you wait! Tell me this is a paying gig though? Don’t do it for free.

Ooooh no then. You gots to get paid for that stuff. Any time you do work on camera, extra work or otherwise, even if they never use you, you need to get paid. I would not pay for flights and hotels to work for free to save production a few bucks.
