British actor Ricky Gervais has hinted that he may bring back his TV series “Extras” for a few more episodes because he misses working on the show.
“Extras”, which lasted thirteen episodes, features Gervais portraying an out-of-work actor trying to get jobs, in turn losing them to bigger A-list actors such as Kate Winslet, Sir Ian McKellen and Robert De Niro.
He tells Britain’s Zoo Magazine: “Yes, I miss ‘Extras’ more than ‘The Office’. ‘The Office’ had to finish when it did, but I think ‘Extras’ could still go on and on. We created better characters in ‘Extras’. Andy Millman was more real than David Brent by the end of the show and I loved Maggie Jacobs. She was the best character we’ve come up with.”
“Extras” won Gervais an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series in 2007 and a Golden Globe for Best Television Series â€“ Musical or Comedy this year. He was also nominated for Emmys for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series in 2006 and 2007 and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series in 2007.
