Richard Wilson: Now the actor
From Photographer to Actor:
Dec 28th 2005:
I woke up sure. I had always been an actor at heart. As a child I played. As I became an adult I became more and more intense about life....about injustice. So I began.
In six months I set out to learn my new craft. I worked with several student directors, helping them with there film projects. My favorite, "The Man in Me" by Andres Sivori, helped me see that all I need to do was to keep hold of my dream. I also was part of "Spiderman III", Datelines "The Bird Flu" as an extra. Half a dozen photographers used me in there photo projects and commercial projects. It has all been a learning experiance, one in which I wish to continue.
Now...I dream on. There is a preliminary script. I want to see my next vision on a short independent film. It is the dark story of a young talented girl who's dreams were shattered because the world around her tore her soul from love, enveloped her in a fear that she would never aquire it.
It will be a very unpleasant black and white film and hopefully will make those who view it, feel some of her struggle, sorrow and pain.
