To say I was excited is an understatement.
After that the extras were taken down to a bar right outside of location. In there we were placed in a 'holding room' (read: just told to hang out at the bar) until they finished filming a gala scene beforehand. Since I had never been on a television or movie set before, I sat outside and watched them film. And it was fascinating.
At about 1am (ugh) it was finally time for my scene. I was very aggressive about getting in there immediately and was placed right at the front of the shot. It was a protest where a few of us were angry about the gala that was being filmed the scene beforehand. In the show Kevin Spacey and his wife Robin Penn are working to get him the presidental vote in the next election. Us protestors were angry about the bill Spacey was about to enact.
And the $100 check I got in the mail the next week wasn't bad either :)
