Statues and extras lead a relatively unnoticed existence in film. There is a lot to tell about this job. Not only how much one can earn ("something above the minimum wage"), but also, for example, how far the requirements can ultimately reach ("even up to bed scenes").
The linked Bento article does not claim to describe the work of an extras in an objective way, but rather describes subjectively what it can be like to play only the third violin in front of the camera. Nevertheless, that&s why it&s so nice to read.
