I suppose there is a nice symmetry to pursuing acting roles, after all that's where it all started way back in a snow covered field in Sweden playing an alien in a conversation with Santa Clause after a midair collision.
Last year, I was offered a couple of small parts, with more than a little help from my lovely agent, Wayne, at Middleman, and found that I am as comfortable in front of the camera as I am hammering away at the keyboard. In fact, I have confirmed what I long suspected, acting gives me valuable insight into writing for actors.
I look forward to seeing where the symbiosis of the two roles will take me.
I didn’t know who I’d be playing that first day, but I was pleased when I turned up on set and the director exclaimed, “You’re perfect!”
So who’s the character? asked me.
“You’re Carl, a broken-down drunk guy.”
Well… thanks a lot.
Life Of The Party.
Yep, I’ve been a hipster more than once or twice. Can’t see why myself.
And a biker in Summer Bay and… well… whatever the hell is going on with the kilt.
