Playing a linguistics professor unable to decipher "Faerie" language. I was thrilled that I managed to make Anna Paquin laugh while shooting!
This is where it all begins. In the chair. In theatre, you do it yourself. In TV and film, you just sit there while somebody pulls you together.
In this episode, I had to age 20 years. I'm always amazed at how different the make-up and hair designers can make you look.

"Space: Above and Beyond" only lasted one season, but continues to have a surprisingly loyal fan base! I played a creepy, murderous "Monitor." There was a huge, grizzly fight in the script which I was dreading since I'm seriously uncoordinated and truly terrible at stage combat. I was relieved to arrive on set to discover they'd found a stunt man that looked almost exactly like me! In the episode, it actually appears like I'm the one getting the crap beaten out of me. I've gotten a lot of compliments on that fight! FYI -- I never take credit for it. I have noting but the highest respect for stunt actors. They are amazing!
