    Hello everybody,

    I was wondering if some of you could help me.

    My grandfather used to work with Ken Hutchins before he became a movie extra and I was wondering if anybody had any information on him such as what films he was in, and possibly what he does now?
    All information will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you very much for your time

    If you look through the Sighted thread on here under "Extras", rightstuff, on Aveleyman

    http://www.aveleyman.com/ActorCredit...ActorID=103424

    and on MovieDude's site

    http://movie-dude.co.uk/Ken%20Hutchins.htm

    you'll find quite a bit of information on Ken Hutchins. Anything you know about Ken via your grandfather would be much appreciated.

    I have him down in Batman thanks to the list Scott Palmer provided me; still haven't found him in the film, though. My bet is he is one of the crowd at the fundraiser early in the film.

    Ken Hutchins (born 1936) was one of the many I spoke to years ago when looking for extras. He was also a cricket coach, and later did film security work. He told me that he began doing extra work in 1956, and last worked on the film Love Actually in 2003 (as far as I am aware). He remembered five or six hundred films he worked on. I tried calling him about a year ago when I joined this forum, but his number was no good any more, so he might have moved. We spoke a number of times and he was always very helpful to me.

    Wow that's incredible. Was he a well known extra then also does he still live in England or has he moved to another country?
    Is there any up to date pictures of Ken?
    Would love to know if you possibly get in touch with him.

    Thanks for all the replies!

    Do you know how he so called "got his foot in the door" and would you know what he done after he finished being an extra?
