Kevin as TV Extra

by kevin on January 17, 2012

In August, I spent a day as an extra on one of my favorite TV shows, Leverage, which is on the TNT network. On the day “my” episode was set to air, my family huddled around the TV screen to see my big debut and . . . nothing. The episode turned out to be a two-parter, and my part was nowhere to be seen. So, this week, we gathered ’round again and this time we were rewarded. There I was: “Man Walking on Sidewak.” I guess you could say it all seems like a blur, because it is.

I had fun, though. I moved to Portland a little over a year ago, and it’s so cool to see more and more productions being filmed here. Grimm even shot an episode right on my street (they didn’t bother to warn the residents first, but I’ll forgive them because I like the show). And, of course, there’s the cult hit Portlandia.

Don’t worry. I won’t be heading off to Hollywood to seek my fame and fortune. I’m happy here in Portland, making printables.
