I'm just wondering about those random people who turn up as crime victims on your Law & Order/CSI type shows or otherwise always have small parts. I'm not talking about the famous guest stars, just your average actor.
Like Bree Turner:
55 appearances, but almost all small roles: A singer during the opening credits of My Best Friends Wedding; random appearances on dramas like Cold Case and Ghost Whisperer; "Dancer #1" type roles; random girl with a couple of lines in a movie.
Do people like this make a good living? What do they do in between roles?
