Back in July, I found myself getting a text asking if I wanted to be an extra in the tv-series "Covert Affairs" as they were in Denmark filming a few days and I was asked if I could be there on a Saturday. It didn't take me many seconds before I replied with an big YES.
As usually when you are called in to be an extra, you're told what time and where to show up. What I was looking forward to see, since it was an American TV show filming here in Denmark, would it be bigger, more people and such. I smiled when I got to the area where we were to be that day. It wasn't as big as I thought it would be, but they were maybe more effective to the job, even though we still had to wait a few hours before we were called in to do our task.
The weather was great, so we could sit outside and wait. Until they were filming some scenes where we might be able to be seen. So we moved inside.
As you will get to see the episode before I do, I won't say too much. I can tell though that while we were waiting between takes, I did take a few photos of the place we were at. That said, even if I don't make the cut, it was a great day to be around to see how the actors/actress work. It was interessting to see the crew and Piper looking around the area they were at. Piper were just as curious as we were at some scenes, taking a look when she could.
Overall, it was a good fun day to be around, even though we didn't get to chat that much with the crew, the actor or Piper.... I am looking forward to see the episode when I can....
You should tune it, you will get to see pieces from Copenhagen.... there is one funny thing though, which I noticed in the promo trailer. At one point "Annie" /Piper is talking on the phone from a phone box.... we don't use them that much anymore and that particular box "Annie" / Piper calls from or use, is well rather old... I wonder where they found that one as I haven't seen them in ages.... just a funny note from my part....
Like said, I only have a few photos from the place we were at ...
As the episode have been shown in USA, I rhink it is ok to show these few behind the scenes photos..... And I can tell I am in the scene briefly and yet with my back.... it is the scene where Annie/Piper runs up the escalator chasing the guy with blue shirts on into a black building. As she runs up the escalator, there are two blurry people to the left passing by, one guy with a blue tshirt and the woman to the right is me..... :-)
