Star Wars is looking for extras

Star Wars

Han Solo not paid you back, so short of cash? Or just want to be in a Star Wars film? That’s right, only bloody Star Wars: Episode VIII. *Don’t freak out*

You don’t need the force to make sure you get to take on Kylo Ren (or even join him), you just need to fill in an application form as they are looking for extras, featured background performers, photo doubles or stand-ins, for Spring 2016 in Pinewood Studios in London.

First off, you need to sign up with an agency that represents extras in the UK (there are free ones!). Most though do charge a small fee, but it comes out of your first pay cheque, rather than asking for money up front. Big ones include RayKnight and CastingCollective. Check out MoneySavingExpert’s thread on how to join.

Once you’re all signed up with an extras agent, fill out the following registration form - Star Wars 8 Extras Registration.

If you do fancy a speaking part, has all info you need.

Right, we’re off to apply - see you in the Cantina!
