A day in the life of a rube! A WFE extra shares his experience

We follow many WFE extras on twitter and they have contributed so much to the fans of WFE. We’ve loved them sharing their daily duties and giving us glimpes into their experience on the set of ‘Water For Elephants‘.

Cody Wood! A WFE rube ;)

One extra, Cody Wood, took things a bit further and shared his experience in a way we’re sure you’ll enjoy:

Dust and limbs moved wildly around the ring. My legs stretched out in front of me faster and faster as the animals approached. On my left a llama came and went. Where were the zebras and camels? Screams echoed around and around and my heart pounded. Leaping over hay bales I came bounding almost even with the llama again….

There is really no way to make 4:30am a comfortable time to wake-up. It just doesn’t feel right. The body moves slowly and the mind even slower. Darkness continues even with lights on. But as I filled my cup with orange juice early last Monday morning my mind was churning with excitement; it was going to be my first day on the set of Water for Elephants.

Cody plans to write more on his WFE experience and we certainly can’t wait. Thanks Cody for sharing with us 🙂
