A Bit of Fry & Laurie – Chicken

A Sad Day.

When Erin Moran died I wondered what the life of an actor would be like if they had a place and a group of people who cared instead of being actors who pass in the night, out of sight out of mind. Where were her Happy Days friends?

I don’t blame them or her but life in general. There is so much that could have been done a community of actors who help one another when actors fails on hard times a community a home a hotel with a business office all in one place.

I believe we need to help each other while we are here on earth and not be so selfish actors should have a community to find jobs and health care when they have an actors card.

Erin had a familiar face and that became one of the reasons new parts were hard to find yet there are so many different acting jobs and if companies got together with a permanent building in the Actor’s Hotel Home. I don’t have a name for the building.

Jobs could come from a variety of places voice-overs for Disney and Pixar; TV Show Auditions; Directors who spot an actor for an audition; TV Cartoons voice overs; TV Commercials; Advert actors; Documentary voice overs; Verbal Books for the blind; Acting Teachers in schools; Acting Teachers for night school, plus a harbor of skilled actors, directors, and producers online, one place a community a place for actors who need one place.

Depression and health can be addressed a unique place, an uplifting place instead of a footnote that dies in a trailer park. Support comes from donations, job finder fees and those actors who can pay a monthly fee toward the home just like World Vision.

This idea was inspired by the death of Erin; my thoughts came out of the sadness from her death. Erin needed friends and support a community?

Danny Trejo

There is one character actor who has a fascinating face and background. In this age of instant judgement, we decide what kind of person is by their looks whatever they look like. Danny made his face his fortune but it took a while, and what an interesting story, it should be told to the youth of today who suffer from the syndrome of ‘Ken and Barbie’, in fact bullying kills the youth because they have fragile egos.

God puts us here on earth with many opportunities I truly believe Danny Trejo could help even if he feels he could not write a book that would inspire and mentor; there are those who write while you record. Danny if you read this please write your biography?
