A Day in the Life of: A Rock of Ages Extra

When I received an email invitation to participate as an extra in the new Rock of Ages movie, I could not resist. Immediately I gathered a group of my friends and we decided we were going to rock out like it was 1983.

So, on Monday, July 18th, my two friends and I made our way to Sun Life stadium where we heard the first, of many interesting, news: no cell phones, no exceptions.

While having my phone wouldn’t typically be a problem, it was after we heard piece of interesting news number 2: you’re going to be taken to the Hard Rock Casino on a school bus… and oh, wait, you’re going to be there until 9 p.m.

The news came as a shock to both of my friends and I, as we were expecting to be out of the stadium by 5 pm! Without being able to contact our parents, and somewhat worse not being able to update my Twitter (#totallyfreakingout), my friends and I boarded the bus to see what awaited us at the fabulous Hard Rock.

As we made our way into the theatre, none other than Tom Cruise was singing Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” with co-stars Julianne Hough and Diego Boneta.

After an intense day of Rock and Roll, watching Tom Cruise sing shirtless, and prize give-aways, my friends and I left at 6pm after calling someone to pick us up (thank you, payphone!).

Rock of Ages opens Summer 2012, with an all star cast (members include Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Mary J. Blige, Kevin Nash, Catherine Zeta-Jones and more!) .
