About the Author:

Jo Kelly was married for 25 years to the late veteran actor Jack Kelly who starred with James Garner in the popular TV show "Maverick". During the marriage Jo was a Real Estate Broker and property manager. After Jack's death Jo decided to become a background actor because you can work as little or as much as you like. It was fun, however, as she learned the ropes she also learned where the sharks swim. She decided to put on seminars on how to get cast as an extra and then wrote the book to help all who enter this arena to do it the right way.
