As actors, we are always looking for opportunities to find work. I started my little acting career in background work and I had no idea what I was in for. I was in the waiting room in the bottom of a church with other background actors on the set of the 3rd episode from the 1st season of Blue Bloods. I sat in these small chairs in the corner of the room that was labeled non-union background. Some of the "union" background people were looking back at us and laughing. I felt like a freshman in High School with no clue whatsoever in what I was doing. I thought that background people were just background. Yes, they are needed in a scene to fill up dead space and make everything seem livelier... but I never knew how serious people actually took it. It was my first time on a set in anything that involved acting and it was a belittling experience. I went on to do about 3 or 4 more back ground projects and have felt similar experiences. I told myself I would never do that again. So I sought out acting training. I took classes. I still do. If background is your thing, that is great. I rather have a speaking role. Any stories?
