Hi loves, 
Hope you all had a fantastic week, on today's post I would like to share a few photos of my work as a Background Performer.  A few of you asked me what I do for a living. Well beside being a housewife and a mommy, I  am also a Background Performer, basically I am a extra on movies and TV shows, nothing fancy, but I do enjoy every minute of it! These are just a few photos taken onset of various TV shows and movies I had the privilege to work on.  I love doing what I do, everyday onset is different, every production is different, plus you get to meet and work with awesome people. 
I studied tourism and worked for a commercial airline for almost 10 years " gosh that makes me look old" Lol, but when I recently lived in Portugal for 2 years I had the opportunity to do some TV work for a few Portuguese TV shows and that is when I discovered a new passion. When I returned to Canada I managed to continue to do what I love.  Some of the TV shows I had the opportunity to work on are Saving Hope, Nikita, Rookie Blue,  Agatha, The Listener, Lost Girl,  Horizon, The Divide, Hemlock Grove, Sensitive Skin, Love is Dead, Orphan Black, Falling Skies, Hannibal, Warehouse 13, Covert Affairs, Suits, Breakaway, Best Laid Plans, Breakout Kings, Being Erica, Unnatural History, Nothing Personal, Miracles, Beauty and the Beast and much more including a few movies, Bomb Girls, Jesus Henry Christ, Sharpay's Fabulous Adventures and many more but unfortunately for legal reasons there are some projects I've worked on recently including some American movies but since it's not out yet I am not allowed to talk about it too much for now. 
Hope you enjoyed this post.

Take care everyone and have an awesome weekend!

  6. How fun and exciting! I love that you do this in addition to your major responsibilities at home, you're a superwoman!


    1. Awee thanks so much Silvia, but I am no superwoman but at least I try my very best, my favorite role is being a mommy. :)

  7. é bom quando fazemos aquilo que gostamos, isso dá-nos uma serenidade imensa.

    Aqui e agora também faço aquilo que gosto. Só tenho pena que o meu país não me dê a mesma oportunidade.
