    Hey, this is Sherry of Millennium Casting. Sorry to say, some drunk ran into me and broke my neck and back so I no longer operate Millennium Casting. I had to burn all those wonderful pictures I’ve taken or received over the years and it made me cry. I’d like to thank each and everyone of you fantastic Background actors who allowed me to be part of your life and you part of mine. Now, go get jobs and break a leg…Love, Sherry

    Are there any agencies in San Francisco, CA. that primarily cast Background/Extras? Other than Beau Bonneau/SF Casting. I’m already with them. Is there any way that I can get a list of legitimate agencies in SF?

    Thanks!
