    I was working at Trident studio in London at the time and had to go to our video services company Trilion based at Shepperton Studios one day to help install a mixing desk. During the day a man came in and asked if he could borrow us. to cut a long story short we ended up in the film as extras in the pinball wizard scene. I was to be one of the people carrying out Elton John but was thought to be too short!
