Here are the details regarding the item up for auction:

Includes: a non-speaking, featured “extra” walk-on role on HBO‘s hit series, TRUE BLOOD. Valid for one person however, the winner may bring a guest on set. Must be at least 18 years old. Availability is based on production schedule. Show tapes in LA. We can not guarantee that the scene the winner is in will make the final cut and be aired. The winner will be paid for their time (the minimum required to pay an extra or background artist) and therefore he or she should bring the paperwork necessary to complete the I-9 form.

All the money raised in the auction will benefit GLSEN‘s efforts to ensure safe schools for all of America’s students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.

Congratulations to HBO to be honored at the GLSEN‘s Respect Awards in Los Angeles, CA on October 9, 2009 as a Corporate Role Model for GLSEN’s growth and visibility the last few years and its work in portraying positive images of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community through their exceptional series and movies.

    Im in South Africa and True Blood has sucked many hours out of me! I just love it! Wish I could be that xtra!!!!

  • Dora

    Ugh!!!! I wish I could do this. I have no money to give to do such an exciting thing plus help out. At last just poor right now.

  • laura

    I would love to give money for a good cause and get a dream experience in the process, but alas dirt broke and college student. Sorry, but I am sure many will bid and the final one will be high. Good idea btw.

    Though it is for charity you have to think about whether it’s worth your time. These kind of extras get $75 for their time. You can end up sitting around for 12+ hrs. just for them to film your scene. In today’s economy auctions aren’t the best idea, IMO. Good luck to the winner. BTW, when in the hell does Season 2 hit DVD?

    WOW – what an awesome opportunity to appear as an x-tra on True Blood! PLUS a great way to help a great charity. BUT unfortunately I cannot compete financially with the bidding!

    I have another type of offer that would maybe win me a spot as a x-tra on True Blood and it would definitely assist the charity.

    Please email me back if interested. I am a HUGE True Blood fan and this would be a great “Bucketlist” event to fulfill a dream of mine! Thanks ………….

    Only if i had that kinda money laying around, i would so go. They should do a contest instead 😉

    Pretty lame idea, bid’s up to $3000 now.

    • Well I wouldn’t call it lame. The proceeds of the auction are going to a good cause. Pricey, yes but if someone has the available funds and desire why not. I have personally seen people spend more money on other things that in my eyes seemed wasteful.

        Hmm, actually you have a good point. I guess for me personally it seems unfair it had to be the person with most money who will get to be an extra. If the way to win is per say put in days of your time to do volunteer work, a lot more people would be able to do that.
