Five tips of things NOT to do on a TV/Movie Set

Updated: Jan 29, 2022

You’ve submitted all vital information. Including a selfie to be a background artist on your favorite TV show. After hours and hours of waiting for a response, you FINALLY get an email notification from the casting company stating you BOOKED! You pick up your phone to post – HOLD ON! (sound of a record scratch.)

Here are three things that you should not do once you’ve booked a film and TV role!

1. DO NOT post any details about your booking on any social media platform. Sharing such information will more than likely get you Blacklisted from working on ANY film set. According to, Blacklisted is a list of privately exchanged among employers, containing the names of persons to will be barred from employment because of untrustworthiness or for holding opinions considered undesirable.”

2. DO NOT bring any family members onto a film set.

3. DO NOT use your phone while any filming is taking place.

4. Once you hear the director say, “Quiet on the set,” DO NOT continue talking.

5. Lastly AND most importantly, DO NOT speak to any of the lead actors unless they speak to you FIRST.

If you have any more suggestions of what not to do once you’ve booked a role, please add them to the comments section.

Always be there and on time and if something happens and you aren’t going to make it, let them know ahead of time or as soon as you know. If you don’t it will result in many companies blacklisting you and no company will hire you.
