Bit Part
A BIT PART is a role in which there is direct interaction with the principal actors and no more than five lines of dialogue, often referred to as a five-or-less or under-five in the United States, or UNDER SIXES in British television. A bit part is higher than that of an extra and lower than that of a supporting actor . An actor who regularly performs in bit roles, either as a hobby or to earn a living, is referred to as a BIT PLAYER, a term also used to describe an aspiring actor who has not yet broken into supporting or leading roles. Unlike extras , who do not typically interact with principals, actors in bit parts are sometimes listed in the credits . An exception to this practice is the cameo appearance , wherein a well-known actor or other celebrity appears in a bit part; it is common for such appearances to be uncredited
