My kids used to do 'background acting' (extra's) in movies. They had fun and made some pretty good money but after about a year the excitement faded for them. A movie shoot can be a long day for a child. I think I had much more fun watching them then they had doing it. I always try to encourage the people I know to consider putting their own children into 'background acting' because it really is quite an experience for them.
