“I was the first male zombie shot on the first episode of The Walking Dead.”
Chrissy Teigen, whose boredom during quarantine has led to a ton of really good Twitter and Instagram content, took to Twitter yesterday to ask her followers a very important question: Have they ever been briefly famous?
Chrissy’s own minute of fame came shortly before meeting John Legend on the set of his music video for “Stereo,” when her boobs starred in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift as “girl getting out of car.”
Tons of people responded to Chrissy’s question, proving that basically everyone knows at least one person who’s been an extra in a movie or TV show. Here are a few of the highlights from people who will forever have a wild story to tell if they’re in need of filling awkward dinner party silence.
