Featured Background Work - Resume?
Hello everyone! I had a quick question. My daughter mostly does theater, but we're trying to break into the TV/Film side of things. She booked a featured background role for a TV show that is filming tomorrow. Is that something we could put on her resume? I read that you shouldn't put extra work, but I'm not sure if this would be an exception. Thanks!” —Amanda052
