How to be an extra?

People have been asking me how to get to be an extra in Nim's Island, but I'm afraid I honestly don't know. Everything to do with the production side of things is right out of my influence - and my understanding! In fact everything I know about extras is what I learned on Extras, the Ricky Gervais TV show...

Yes, it's true that I'm going to be one (along with my husband, and the book's illustrator, my friend Kerry Millard) but that was a slightly different route. In fact I guess that route started when I started writing the book nine years ago.

Sorry, guys...
