Well kind of. Earlier this year I was an extra in the Disney XD movie Skyrunners. It was filmed in New Zealand in May and just aired for the first time last Friday. I can be seen in about three different scenes during the movie.. Heres a picture:
 


I've grown about two inches since then and my hair is much shorter. And now i've already got my first speaking roll lined up for a local show called Outrageous Fortune which will be familiar to anyone here from NZ.

Oh you bastard, Antonia Prebble is just godly fucking awesome, You bastard, Fuck. 
 
Cunt. 
 
Sorry,  
 
Actually no I’m not you bastard, You're probably not even a fan of the show. 
 
Fuck. 
 
Nah, in all seriousness, good on ya mate, well done, Don't fuck up :) 
 
And if you can give my number to Antonia I would be much grateful.. 
 
Not stalker'ish at all....  
 
 

 

 

Who will you be playing as? how far into the season is it? will it be an Re-occurring role? I know that they have started it as  has shot a scene, Can you give any tid bits? or are you in the dark? God that show and seven days are the only bit of Kiwi telly I watch as everything else is shit. 
 
Well done man, have to shout you a drink or something.

Im pretty sure being an extra doesn't get you a place on imdb.

Well this particular movie was $200 NZD a day. And a day was about 10 hours. But i've also done an ad for Nutrigrain(breakfast cereal) and got $1500 for two days work. The food you're given is pretty decent too.
