To date I’ve mostly been an extra (often featured and interacting with main cast) but I’m dipping my toes into acting and so far they’ve not been burnt from the water being too hot ! In the last 18 months I’ve appeared as an extra in Game of Thrones Seasons 3 , 4, 5 and 6, Starred Up, Robot Overlords.  And in 2015 you should see my first feature length acting debut in Grainne Uaile the movie although it is only a tiny part I play in it. There’s extras then there’s extras (or Background Artistes as some prefer to refer to themselves 😉 ) I’m rarely that ‘crowd’ extra that is just someone walking past in the background and almost always much more featured, may it be sword fighting or interacting with cast.

    Hello Michael,

    My name is Anne-Marie, I came across you website by accident. After reading your story, I wanted to ask if the transition from extra to actor was due to luck with casting? I’m a new entrant runner/assistan who has done extras work in pass but was thinking about doing this in between my main job. May I ask how you got the Game of Thrones role?

    Warm regards,

    Hi Michael

    I love Game of Thrones and have enjoyed your scenes at Castle Black.
    I collect autographs from the cast of the show, and wondered if I could send you a few photos to sign?

    It’d be much appreciated and they’d be a great addition to y collection.
    Thanks so much
