Television Extra Work In New York

The daytime soaps will hire both Union, and non-union extras. The Actors Union that covers Soaps is called AFTRA and the pay rate is slightly different. It is also much easier to join. Mail in your Pictures & Resumes, (P&R), and postcards. Be sure to write Available for Extra Work on your resume and envelope. It is a good idea to include a short, professional cover letter asking for a general meeting. The Casting Director or Casting Assistant is the one to try to meet. This is not necessary for work, but people like to hire people they know and like.
