Veronica exercised her talent agent muscles and got me some extra work in downtown Auckland yesterday. I’m a big fan of movies and acting, but I’ve got absolutely no experience in “the industry.” One great thing about being lost in foreign lands is that you have the confidence to do anything. My acting career launched on the Victorian Era set of “What Really Happened – The Woman’s Vote” in Auckland, New Zealand.
I’d say that being a good extra is all about waiting. We spent almost all day waiting. On the rare occasion, I’d walk around and do my awesome acting. Most importantly, the whole time we got to look super snazzy!
I like the movie industry. Maybe I’ll become an actor or a stunt man. It would have been sweet to have been riding a horse all day.
Even though this gig was mostly waiting around, I consider it a great adventure. I met some really interesting people, got to get dressed up and was well fed. Good times.
