I was Called to Work on Madam Secretary

I have been booked for a background role on the TV series Madam Secretary. This is a CBS show that stars Tea Leoni. I haven't been watching the show, but I guess I should watch a few episodes to get a feel for it. I do like Tea Leoni and enjoy her work, and I've been wanting to check it out anyway.

This is a two-day matching shot booking, which is always nice to get. I will be portraying a cult member, and that's about all I know at the moment. The shoot is Tuesday and Wednesday. Unfortunately, these will be exteriors scenes both days, and cold weather is forecast, especially for Tuesday. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the cult member costume will be warm, or at least allow for heavy winter layering underneath.

I have never worked on this show, so I'm rather excited to see how it goes. I have two other background actor friends who will be working with me, and that always makes it extra fun!

My wife and I enjoy watching that show and I will keep an eye out for your scene, good luck!

Thanks - I will try to find out what episode it will be. Sometimes I forget, but it really helps to know the episode number.

This is one of my favorites as well. Good luck and break a leg.

Great, I know you will do really well.

amyk49 Congrats. One more series under your belt. I don't watch Madam Secreatary, but I do like Tea Leoni's work. Hope those exterior scenes don't take that long to shoot.

That is so exciting it really is good show and the staff members are interesting. You will have to tell me which episode it is so I can look for you. :)

I don't watch that show but might entertain watching an episode to see if I would like it.

I just love hearing of your adventures in Extra-Land. (LOL) I love how you are expanding the variety of roles that you are playing.

I am thrilled that you have been selected for this role.

Since Orange is on hiatus right now, I have the opportunity to do other things. When Orange is filming, they keep me as busy as I want to be, so I don't submit for other things, or rarely anyway. But it is fun doing different shows.

Thanks! It's just a background role, but "cult member" does sound intriguing, and I'm curious to see what all it will involve. I really won't know much until I am on set.

amyk49 Now that is cool. Hope you stay warm in this cold weather. I am sure you will enjoy working on that show. I never seen it myself. but just the thought of being able to work on a show, any show, sounds exciting to me.

That sounds like an exciting job to be having, but I guess it's inconsistent? Do you watch yourself on TV once it's over?

amyk49 wrote on February 3, 2015, 8:29 AM

It is inconsistent in that you submit for jobs, and may or may not be called. I would maybe an average of once a week or so. But when I'm working Orange is the New Black I often work 3 days a week. So it all depends, and you can never really count on anything. I do try to watch for myself whenever I can. Sometimes I don't know the exact episode, so if it's a show I don't ordinarily watch, then I might not see myself.

amyk49 - Congratulations on getting the background role. I'll have to look for you in the upcoming episodes. I am an avid watcher of Madam Secretary and find it extremely interesting how it relates to what's actually going on in the world right now.

sounds great - not heard of the show - hopefully it will air in the UK some time too
