After my recent theatrical outing is as Jefferson Steele, in A Bunch of Amateurs, (where I played a fading Hollywood action hero who's been conned into playing King Lear in 'a' Stratford, with a bunch of amateur thespians), I'm in recovery mode. One hell of a lot of work went into it, including 'Gymtober', but as well as a very nice review One audience member approached me after to announce he was American and asked what part of the States I was from, When I asked him to guess, he said judging by my accent, California. Yusss! Guess my accent work also paid off! I got to wear a really awesome wig, too (I borrowed the wig I wore in Hudson and Halls: Live and restyled it.
So, what's next? I have no idea, but I've become rather attached to my adopted 'Californian' accent, so a role in a US movie would be most welcome.
I really had a LOT of fun spoofing old movie posters for this play, which were displayed in the foyer of the theatre. (Apologies to Mr Connery and Mr Willis)
