    Bringing this thread from the dead:

    Who here is part of the background cast?

    I've been out there a few times already. I'm not there for the pay but for the shits and giggles. And I've always want to see how a show/movie is made.

    I don't have AMC (don't even have a TV) so can't watch myself on S05E01 tonight.

    I've met the actor who plays "The Swede" when he worked on Stargate Atlantis in Vancouver, a former co worker ran their prop/firearms stuff for that production, and I spent the day out with him on site while visiting him and his family, and the "Swede" had several scenes as some makeuped giant Alien. Nice guy.

    I really like HOW as well, Colm Meaney is an old favorite of our household from back in his Star Trek and Deep Space Nine days. Great actor, very passionate about the Irish people and politics there, interesting person.


    I did extra work when I was young and first moved to Calgary in 1992. I worked as a Canadian infantry soldier during the 1st World War on Legends of the Fall, I'm in the frame during the night charge a couple guys over from Aiden Quinn. Brad Pitt also came out with our group 2 nights during the shooting, we left a note on his chair and said we were going out to the clubs and wanted to know if he wanted to see the sights. He wanted to be driven around and shown local architecture more than party, but he came out for that a bit as well, then played basketball with us for the rest of the shooting schedule when time permitted.

    The local film firearms guys working on Hell on Wheels have provided some great work, there is a youtube video on their goings on during filming, showing a lot of the interesting prop firearms they've made, including the Swede's weapons and such, I'll find it and link it here later.

    I was in a bit of season three as an extra. Even got to do a "fight" scene with Common and some of the other guys. Also had a few pictures up on the AMC website that year.

    Got sick of keeping a longer beard, and taking so much time off work, so I couldn't do any of the work they called me for last year.

    Was a fun experience though, as I did it for the fun, not the money. Pretty cool to see yourself on tv, and since that season just came out on dvd, I had to buy it.

    One sort of scary thing, the aspiring actress that got killed by her husband this winter worked a bunch on HOW as well, so I recognized her when they put the pictures in the paper recently once they charged him.

    I was contacted by the art department for the show and have been cnc cutting a bunch of the props for season 5. I got to tour the set a month or so ago which was really cool
    It is neat watching the new season knowing exactly where they are in the set and how intricate they make every scene. So far I have spotted 2 items that I cut for them and look forward to when I can post all the pictures that I took on set
    Being an extra on the show would be really cool
    I never knew how people got into that. Maybe some day. From what I know the 1st and 2nd part of season 5 will wrap filming around October.

    torrent the episode

    so what's it like being part of the background cast?
    Saw myself on episode 1 There were couple other scenes on episode 1 which I was participating in but looks like they chose different angle shots for the final cut. They do film a scene half a dozen times from diff angles and then choose the best shots and sew them together.

    I'm going back there in the new week sometime.

    man, that's cool! can people just show up and watch while it's being filmed?
    No. They also minimize the number of non-crew people (ie background cast) at the spot on the set they're shooting.

    When do they film season 6? I wanna be an extra
    Are you asian?

    Season 5 has a lot of "chinaman" involved.

    I never knew how people got into that. Maybe some day
