Reflection on Familiar Skies

There are times when the familiar cold hand reaches out to me, accompanied by a darkness in the skies of my mind. Like the disruptive friend who just doesn’t seem to get the hint, no matter how blunt you make it, or maybe it is more like the uncomfortable yet obligatory visit of your parents […]

Strange Occurances

This week, the stage play I am in opened for its first three shows. Closer at the Old Mill Theatre in Western Australia. The show itself has been a real test of some of my personal inhibitions, and prudish ideas. It has been a real awakening for me as an actor, and as a person. […]

One challenge in playing a variety of characters is the taking on of different beliefs, and by beliefs, I am not referring to just religious ones. Any beliefs. Beliefs about the world, love, right and wrong, how to treat others, and so on. Trying to find a way to co exist with ideas and beliefs […]
