What am I passionate about?





There are many answers to that question, most of them self-evident. I passionately love to act, of course. I love to entertain, to move people to laughter and tears, to tell stories to audiences old and very young. I love to put on costume and makeup and play a role. You don’t become an actor without a passion for it, and without that passion you certainly don’t stay... Read more of this blog post »

“The most exciting acting tends to happen in roles you never thought you could play.”

“I Need a Good Book

I need a good story.
I need a good book.
The kind that explodes
Off the shelf.
I need some good writing,
Alive and exciting,
To contemplate all by myself.

I need a good novel,
I need a good read.
I probably need
Two or three.
I need a good tale
Of love and betrayal
Or perhaps an adventure at sea.

I need a good saga.
I need a good yarn.
A momentous and mightily
Or slight one.
But with thousands and thousands
And thousands of books,
I need someone to tell me
The right one.

-John Lithgow”
