    So there is no way that anyone under the age of 18 can be an extra in this film? I am 15 years old and am a huge fan. All i want to do is be an extra in a crowd scene or city scene. I don’t even need to be paid, i just want to be apart of this film.

    I have a young daughter, whos name is tessa, she is the youngest of my seven children I believe that she is very gifted little girl,and you might just think that i say that because she is my daughter,But then again in my house hold girls out number the boys, so there is always lots of drama, but i do really believe given the chance she would shine.
