Action! Cut! Action! Cut! Action! Cut! Action! Cut!

I was in the filming of a movie last Saturday it is called “The Tamed Ones”. It’s about a young brother and sister living in a poor town in North America. I was am extra. That means that I was in the background, not a main actor.
We had to wait a long time while the crew filmed other scenes, with other people. Finally it was my turn. My job was to hide on some stairs and walk down some hallways. I did it over and over again because if somebody coughs or messes up a line, we had to start over again.
When we started to act they called out
"action!" and when we were supposed to stop, they called out "cut!".
I heard the words "action" and "cut" about 50 times!

I liked acting a lot! My favorite part was when we hid under the stairs.
Acting as an extra was fun and I was even paid 50 Euro. I would have done it for free because I had such a good time!

This is a picture of me after our busy day of acting. My mom took my sister and me to a Thai restaurant to celebrate our big day.


  1. The Scarabellos in Singapore say: Congratulations and we can't wait to see you in the movie! Good job!! And big hugs to you all!

  2. I can't wait to see the movie; I hope it makes it all the way through production! And congrats in the money earned for the hard day of work. I always thought that extras were not paid, but now I know differently.

  3. We can't wait to see the movie either!!! We are so excited to know famous people :-)
