Netflix’s Stranger Things was one of the most popular shows in 2016 and we often get asked how to be an extra.
Casting Taylor Made, the company that handles the extras for this show, does not provide much information on their website, but it does require that applicants live either in Atlanta, GA, or in the surrounding area to be considered, since it is where the filming takes place. Applicants do not need to be registered on their database before submitting a request for an specific casting call, although it could be useful to do it in advance and be informed as soon as a new call is released.
