I met my wife, Barbara, while acting in college plays. We fell in love, married and began our lives together. A few years later we started our family, and set aside some of our dreams. Although we continued to act in plays and skits at our local church The Naz (Brighton Nazarene Church), we had set aside the dreams of Broadway and Hollywood. Now, that our boys have begun to move on with their own lives, the opportunity to act has returned, albeit with a different goal in mind.
I enjoy acting, for acting’s sake. Being allowed to be a part of the movie making process, making new friends, helping out where I can, and playing make believe are the reward for me.
I honestly feel honored to be a part of a film, for each of them is someone’s dream. Yes, it may seem idealistic to some but to me movies are magic. They are the culmination of years of dreaming, planning, working late nights in the cold, and many sacrifices by those involved.
A movie, like a painting, poem, story, song, or any other artistic medium is, in the end, to be interpreted by the viewer. It is not always about telling a story, it is about expressing a thought or emotion. It is about opening eyes and moving a person. There is a beauty to that.
