A Japanese extra

“Have you ever met anyone famous?”

“Almost. I was an extra on a TV drama. Do you know Yuki Amami?”

“No. Is she good?”

“Yes. She has very good proportions. I saw her. With 500 extras in Odawara. I took train from Abiko. Left at 6.30am. Just got there at 10am, took taxi to set. Waited two hours. She came in, did a little dance, then disappeared. We had to clap for her over and over. I left at 3pm.”

“So, you were on TV?”

“For 5 seconds in the background of drama. And I got a Fujii TV ballpoint pen and hanky.”
