Never did I think I'd be talking to a real honest to God actor online.  ;)   R you still writing books .  When u lost your leg, u dug deep and came out with this inner artistic being  in your soul.  U had all those talents that wouldn't have been used.  I guess we all find an inner strength we didn't know we had when something that devastating happens.


Have a great day;  temps. here 80* and rain later this afternoon.

Haha, I don't think I'll ever be confused with a proper actor.
Strangely enough where I live on a fairly remote island, there are a few proper actors from an Irish soap opera that live here. I'm friends with 3 of them. Theres never asking for autographs at all, here...they're just your neighbors son or daughter. I started working as an extra on that soap opera. Usually I was a fella drinking in the pub. (Real beer or stout...getting paid to drink. Good work if you can get it, haha)
I was then contacted by a amp friend on this forum who lived in Ireland and she told me that Ardmore Studios were looking for amputees for the film 'King Arthur'. I got the job but sadly I was never even used once. I was there 5 weeks, put up in a hotel and driven in by a studio car every morning for full makeup and wardrobe. I felt like a star. One morning I was even picked up with the car full with two of the main stars (knights) from the film. I chatted with Mads Mikkelsen (more known for being the bad guy in the James Bond film 'Casino Royale'). He's from Denmark and I told him a funny story about me getting drunk on a danish liqueur. He just stared at me like I had two heads and went back to reading his paper.
Most of my TV work is as a regular extra. No lines. In the past year or two I have had a chance to have a few lines and larger roles. The last one being a Irish comedy show where in a skit I played a american who hired a Irish fella to show him UFO's. Very bizarre.

The artwork I was always done. I started showing my work in CA back in 1988. Yeah, I'm still writing. I'm working on a new novel at the moment. I never thought I'd ever say I was working on a novel. Writing it is one thing, but having it published is another.
They say everyone has a story within them. You should get writing!
