Hi,

The people recruiting for extras for the Freddie Mercury biopic (referred to as "Bohemian Rhapsody") sent an email to this site asking for extras -if you live in or around London.  Apparently the movie is shooting in the summer.  Apprently, if you register on the "wegotpop" website, you should say "two 10" when answering, how did you hear about us.

Taken from the email:

I am a Casting Agent working alongside ‘We Got Pop’ aka 'POP', whose productions include; Wonder Woman, Doctor Strange, Star Wars: Rogue One, Spectre, The Crown etc. Please check Pop out; www.wegotpop.com

We are currently working on the Queen biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and are looking to reach out to Londoners that would be interested in taking part - thats why we are reaching out to you because we think your followers/readers would love this!

Although it is possible to work full time as an Extra, this is mostly a great opportunity for people looking for who work Part Time or just want something fun to do for a day or so in London. 

Extras can make some seriously good money, with roles typically paying £120-£180 per day, plus production take care of breakfast and lunch (sweet) and on top of that, they get to be apart of a huge Hollywood film!

Would you be interested in sharing this to your website discussions at all? It is definitely something we would love to collaborate on. I've attached a poster to give you an idea of the vibe they would like for this.

Well, for a start, that jpeg is alarming. Perhaps it is heading off course already.

Think I'm too old now to play myself as an audience member in the 70's and 80's concerts but might be in with a shout as one of the Sheffield brothers. Always wanted to play a baddie in a film.

£120-£180 is considered seriously good money in the UK? Boy, Brexit sure has hit you guys hard, hasn't it? :)

Yes. You can't even leave an old washing machine outside your door for the council to pick up (against payment). By the time they come for it, someone else would have come round and taken it.

Have some piece of shit old suitcase with one wheel remaining and no handle? Leave it at the corner of your road. Within an hour it will be gone. And this is in a good neighbourhood in a rich city.

That's really good money for a background extra. A lot of productions try and get by with just the offer of free food and the chance to maybe be seen in a movie. I presume the better pay is because they are looking for specific fashions.
