Interesting story. Sounds like abuse. She was doing actor's type work, not extra. For $125, I would have quit too

I READ the story! I was just saying she was doing actors type work and they treated her like a slave, not like an extra should be treated!!!!

Now watch this idiot will sue and as a result it'll be bye bye to another film ever coming here again. Someone needs to tell her to stfu.

Rochester as a DEAD Urban setting is the only reason they are filming here ..

Downtown will be super imposed to look like NYS , and in the end it won't look any thing like Downtown Rochester ...

The filming here is proof that our city streets are dead and easily sold for the right price ..

Enjoy the movie ....Because reality is to painful..

Sounds like she assumed being an extra gets you a taste of the glamor of being an actor. In reality you are scab labor working under unionized professionals. That's why all those drinks and such are only for the crew. Those are part of their guild agreements. The standing around part? What did she think she would be doing?
