URGENT: ‘Chicago Fire’ Needs TV Extras From Illinois and Wisconsin
Producers for NBC's 'Chicago Fire' need stand-ins of all ages and ethnicities for the 12th season of the show that will begin shooting on November 27, 2023, throughout the Chicago area.
'Chicago Fire' Experience
'Chicago Fire' is one of my favorite TV shows, and it's not just because I have a slight crush on Lt. Kelly Severide or because I have several family members and friends who serve/have served in the fire service. The series is top-notch when it comes to acting and effects, and now YOU have the chance to witness the show's making firsthand!
Chicago Fire Extras is a group that handles the hiring of extras and stand-ins for not only 'Chicago Fire' but 'Chicago Med' and 'Chicago PD' as well, and filming for the new seasons of all three shows begins at the end of November. Several of the scenes require stand-ins for the main actors, and this opportunity comes with the possibility of continuous work through May 2024!
Long-Term Jobs on 'Chicago Fire'
Seeing casting calls for Illinois extras on 'Chicago Fire', 'Chicago Med', and 'Chicago PD' will become a regular thing as filming continues in the months ahead, but this stand-in opportunity is rare and perfect for professional actors seeking continuous work.
Producers have specific looks they need to find, and because doing that may be tougher, this casting call has been issued for residents in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, and Wisconsin.
Apply to Be a 'Chicago Fire' Extra
While the application process for being a 'Chicago Fire' extra is pretty easy, time is of the essence because the first audition session will be held on Friday, November 17, 2023.
If you think you're what the producers are looking for, send an email to CF12extras@gmail.com that includes a recent color photograph of yourself, your height (without shoes on), weight, phone number, city, and state. You must also include the stand-in number you are applying for in the subject line of your email.
To apply send a recent color photograph with your height (without shoes on), weight, age, PHONE number, city, and state to CF12extras@gmail.com and put the number/code of which standin you are applying for, which you can find in the Facebook posts above.
Good luck, and I can't wait to watch you on my favorite TV show soon!
