Location: Nottingham
About me...

I live on the outskirts of Nottingham and after working in the commercial sector, I took an acting course and became a television extra. I first started with amateur dramatics over 20 years ago with Carlton Operatic Society and Nottingham Operatic Society performing at both the Nottingham Playhouse and The Theatre Royal.

About my talk...

I have been a television and film extra for 17 years and have encountered some interesting and strange people.
I talk about the rules & regulations, the pitfalls, the jargon, the pay and my experiences.
I use a multi-media projector, lap-top and screen, all of which I will provide.
The talk lasts for 1 hour.


I charge £50 plus £10 travelling expenses

My Extra Life

Whether it’s a television studio or film location, “on set” is an exciting place to be.
Being a supporting artist (the official name for an extra) is an interesting life, no two days are the same.
They can be long days, sometimes with a lot of hanging about, but “SA’s” are an interesting bunch of generally very nice people, from all walks of life.

Testimonials & Reviews

Mike kept us all entertained with his humorous and fascinating tales. Sleaford U3A members enjoyed his presentation very much. Well done Mike you were splendid.
