Left: with Jenny Seagrove in a photo from "Hold The Dream," the miniseries sequel to "A Woman of Substance," which also starred Jenny. I played a character named Shane and did a faint (too faint) British accent.
Right: with Jenny Seagrove and Deborah Kerr in "Hold The Dream," based on the Barbara Taylor Bradford novel. I've done two miniseries based on Barbara's books, the other being "Remember" opposite Donna Mills. I wish Liam Neeson were in this photo. He reprised Blackie, the role he'd played in "A Woman of Substance," but now as an eighty year old man. The legendary British makeup master, Tom Smith, did Liam's (and my) makeup. He did Liam's aging without prosthetics. Tom simply painted onto the actor's face, as he did with Ben Kingsley in "Ghandi." There are almost always hidden joys and surprises in an actor's life. Working with Liam, Deborah Kerr, and Tom Smith was an amazing experience. And Jenny Seagrove was very English: cool, somehow friendly and distant at the same time, serious about her work, truly lovely, and very good in the part.
