When it came time to write this weeks article, I had originally planned to write “Tony’s Fall/Winter Preview”, but that changed once I heard of the passing of Actor Burt Reynolds (an icon in the film industry for many years), at the age of 82, on Thursday, September 6th, 2018. It’s always sad to lose someone, but it is sometimes hard to lose those people that are part of the celebrity world as well, especially if we have been a fan of their work. I felt some of you would appreciate a closer look at this legendary actor and his career, as there are many of us throughout the years who have enjoyed Burt Reynolds films.

One of my favorite interviews was with a local Minnesota actress, who is now making her mark on Hollywood, and is also showing off her talents as an author. I’m speaking of Actress/Writer… Sarah French. I first interviewed Sarah in August 2015, for the Tri County Sun, which appeared in the August 12th issue. My, how time flies, and I’ve been busy since then, but not nearly as busy as Sarah has.

Stephen King, known around the world for over 40 years, as one of the “greatest writers of our time”, has brought us some of the most frightening, intriguing, and mind bending stories. Also, over 60 of these stories have been adapted for the big screen, as well as television.

Drew was born March 17, 1976, in St. Louis, MO. He was a typical child of the 80′s, enjoying the films and music of the era he was growing up in. He also enjoyed going to summer camp, where he first discovered the world of Stephen King. One particular summer, while at camp, a friend let Drew borrow one of his Bachman books, (of course we know Bachman better as, Stephen King’s alter ego), and Drew was hooked! Who would’ve thought years later that Drew would be part of the Stephen King universe, through the Dollar Baby Program.

When we think about some of our favorite actors, such as Robert De Niro, Brad Pitt, Harrison Ford, and Al Pacino…we think about their films, their amazing acting abilities, and memorable lines from those works. All these actors had to start somewhere. Their fame wasn’t handed to them overnight. They all had to learn the craft of acting, and struggle for their first real break. But before all that, they had to have one simple thing: a dream.
