Booked Another Role on Blue Bloods
Even though this time of year is relatively slow for background actors, there are still shows and movies in the middle of production. Last year in October I had a background role on Blue Bloods, and I just learned that I will be back on the show this coming Monday. I will be portraying a neighborhood passerby. The only downside is that this will be exterior shots, and it's going to be COLD on Monday! I've been trying to avoid submitting for exterior scenes during cold weather, but it's kind of slim pickings for jobs right now so I just went for it.
I will need to carefully layer my clothing and wear extra socks. The crew on Blue Bloods is awesome though, and they will be attentive to our needs, as much as possible anyway. Shooting exterior scenes often means standing outside in the cold for hours, and there's no a whole lot they can do. We are often given hand and foot warmers, and of course we will have a warm holding location to warm up between shots. It all depends on the scene, the location, etc., as to how long we'll have to be out in the cold.
I'll let you know on Tuesday how it went --- assuming I don't have frostbite and can still type. LOL ;)
