Casting teams are now casting background actors, models, and talented skaters to work on the new movie I, Tonya, which is based on the life story of Tonya Harding.  If you have experience as an actor or model do not hesitate to apply as an extra.


This film is about the 1994 Olympic Figure Skating controversy between Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan.  Kerrigan was attacked by a man and was injured prior to the championship trails.  The attack was linked back to Harding’s husband, and chaos ensued.

Tonya Harding struck a plea agreement, admitting to conspiring to hinder prosecution, and was banned from U.S. Figure Skating and stripped of her 1994 U.S. Championship.  This movie is about this interesting event that forever tainted U.S. Figure Skating.  Margot Robbie will play Tonya Harding.


As an extra, you will be featured in a press conference after a huge figure skating competition.  Some extras will have speaking lines and others will simply be in the background.  They also need people to play trainers, medical staff, and coaches.  Many of these roles are speaking roles, so this is a tremendous opportunity for you


Journalists: Male and Females needed.  The actors should be in their 40’s or 50’s and have a good voice.  They might be instructed to ask a question to the main characters and then record it in their notebook in a press conference setting.

Trainers: Male and Female actors any age and ethnicity.

Medical Staff: Male and Female actors any age and ethnicity.

Head Coach: Male in his 40’s or 50’s.  This is a featured role with some speaking lines.

Assistant Coaches: Male and Females any age and ethnicity to play background roles as coaches.  You will be seen in the background helping out and interacting with other skaters.

This movie calls for several extras, but most importantly, directors are looking for a stand-in that knows how to figure skate well.  You will be used in most scenes during competitions doing basic and advanced figure skating moves.  You must look similar to Margot Robbie so the transition looks natural and real.

This is a great opportunity to act in a featured movie with famous actors and actresses like Margot Robbie.  You will meet industry professionals that know what it takes to be successful.  You might even make a great impression on a director or fellow actor and find yourself landing another job after this one!
