A "cameo" is a brief, small part in a film or a play. It is not considered to be an important part of the work itself, but often involves the participation of a famous or well-known individual. For example, Stan Lee, the creator of Marvel, is known for making cameos in Marvel Movies. Making a cameo is slightly different than being an extra, which is often uncredited and non-essential. Ex: She made a cameo in the end of the movie. Ex: If I could, I'd make a cameo in a Disney movie.
