Lots of actors in my position are waiting in line, high rolling for the big bucks but I'm going to place a small bet on my next role. People keep asking if I'm coming back on Arrow & there's been no invitation & another guy has the mask in Teen Titans so instead of holding my breath, I'm accepting another crossover on CW, to an underdog series called Pandora. They've received some Rotten Tomato flack, which almost put me off, but honestly, I like these challenges, have worn critics bs before & if your gut tells you to act, then act. The role CW have offered me, reminds me a bit of Roy Batty, one of my favourite misinterpreted villains, played by the difinitive actor Rutger Hauer. No way I can repeat "Like tears in rain" but I can certainly put my own take, my job, into the performance of LEONE BOKK, described as "Bobba Fett" meets "Man With No Name" meets "Kraven the Hunter" meets "Cable". It's a dramatic premise I simply can't ignore & so jumping on a plane in an hour to fly to Bulgaria to join this production & cast. Obviously this show doesn't have anywhere near the budget of Bladerunner, but I've experienced the hard work of productions & emergence of underground shows that were forced to learn whilst cutting their teeth. My acting teacher, Sandra Lee Patterson, drilled into me one valuable lesson, there are no small roles, just small actors. #leonebokk @thecw @thecwpandora @cw_arrow
