Elaine Stritch rocks my world... is that allowed?

Now if you don't know who Elaine Stritch is, go watch the recent doc about her (Netflix has it) and forever be in awe of her talent and personality.

She was the original broadway star and I mean Broad, as she had the courage to just say what she felt and live the way she wanted... at least from my outsiders view of course.

Now here is what I ponder, would she have made her way through the maze of today's theatre and film/tv industry with the attitude and mouth she has? I mean, I love her strength (even if it comes from insecurity), but I truly wonder if she would get away with it today? I suppose it's all good if the intention is from LOVE, but too many people nowadays would just quickly judge and toss that type of person to the sidelines, when they didn't toe the line.

Elaine made it in this world because of her non apologetic view and good on her!...she said it herself, "too many people talk too nice to each other in this industry" ... covering up what they are really feeling.... fear?

My hat goes off to you Ms. Stritch and rest in peace.

I just wanted to celebrate her today.

Just a thought

The new site, the first post and working with Simon Pegg on Hector

Let's just get started with some fun video, as sometimes is just better to watch than to read.

The fun film 'Hector and Search For Happiness' is already out in the UK and is premiering in the USA on Sept 26th... hope you have a chance to check out this warm hearted film starring Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Toni Colette and myself in a supporting role. I so enjoyed my time on set with Simon and Toni who are just stellar folks, relaxed and crazy talented. I also have a quick screen grab here and can you believe, I didn't take a single snap whilst on set... idiot! 

Welcome to the new site and I plan on using this blog on a consistent basis until my life sends me into a different direction... so basically I'll do my best to update and keep things interesting.
