After a turn of unexpected events, today I ended up being an extra in the new film, Ashby! It stars Nat Wolff, Emma Roberts, and Mickey Rourke!
High-school student Ed Wallis enters into a friendship with his neighbor, Ashby, a retired CIA assassin who only has a few months left to live.
I had a blast today! This was my 2nd time doing “extras” work for a film. The first being Footloose in 2010, so I knew what we’d be asked to do. Lots of pretending to cheer/jump up and down without making any noise. Then vice versa. It sounds really strange, but it’s really fun! Definitely hot and take your energy, but lots of fun! The shoot began at 6:30am and went on past 7:00pm. I arrived near 3:00pm because of work, but I had a blast! This was some of the “prop” food they gave the audience to use. Why? I have no clue. But it made a great souvenir!
Here’s some photos of the set, Nat Wolff, and Emma Roberts:
It was all one big finale of a football game! Lots of spoilers, but I can’t wait to see it on the big screen!!
They also did some raffles! They gave away a lunch with the cast and crew (which we missed!), 2 Go Pro’s, and a meet and greet with Nat and Emma! During the day, lots of people left (including there raffle tickets), so when the time came for them to giveaway the first Go Pro, they called out 8 people… those eight people had left. They finally called out the 9th raffle tickets number… AND IT WAS MINE! I freaked! I ran to the front with happiness all over my face! I had won the first Go Pro
I’m so happy!! I can’t wait to use it at SDCC! Everyone there was so nice. They kept congratulating me!!
I had a blast working on this movie, even if it was for one day! Seems like it’s gonna be a hit!
