Yep, appearing on tv again :)P :)P (in my default role as a coach driver) on ITV's Emmerdale programme.

The role involved me driving a small (24 seater) coach to the main terminal building at our local airport, making sure that the taxi following me (carrying the main actor in the scene, Chris Chattel, aka "Eric Pollard") couldn't get past me until I came to a halt, the actor then had a rant at me whilst I unloaded 8 extra's and their luggage :whistle:

It will be broadcast here in 6 weeks time, but here is a piccie of the coach on set


And notice the props dept has made the F into a T on the company lettering, to avoid advertising regulations on British TV.

Congratulations Cam! Where's the piccie? I don't see it...

I have an old college buddy (actually a fraternity brother) who is an extra on a show filmed in The Hamptons (Long Island, NY). It's called Royal Pains and it's on USA Network here in the states. He had some really good face time a couple of episodes ago. It's quite odd seeing a familiar face on TV...

Sorry folks, but due to the extremely bad weather here at the moment, it's taken a while to load the picture....

Thanks for the comments though :D

Too bad they couldn't use your face daily at that rate. Makes the "drive time" a little more bearable... :thumb:

A tv star in the making. Do you get paid a lot? :shades:
Put it this way, my hourly rate at work for driving the coach is £12.50, ITV paid me £95.00 for 2 hours work (in addition to my normal wage for the day)... :thumb:
