This topic confuses all actors. Shall we do extra work or not? It probably depends on which tier you are at as an actor. If you are a newbie like me then yes I think you should do some SA work. Personally I do it as much as I can because I do not have a full-time job, performing is my survival job. Although, I recently started to question myself on this subject harder. On the other hand, I happened to be chosen for a core SA team of a very high profile feature film production which will go on until April 2021. They will be booking me literally almost half of each month until the end which will probably save me for the time being really. It is too good to refuse. I am really hoping that this production would be my last background work as I strongly believe that I am ready for a tier jump in my acting career.
