Interview with Canadian actor | Brent Stait





Firstly, I would like to thank Brent for the opportunity to interview him for my blog. Brent was born in Manitoba, Canada but his pursuit of acting eventually lead him to Stratford Ontario, where he cut his acting chops. Some of the notable television credits to his name are  “Highlander: The series,” “Andromeda,” and “X-files” Brent has also worked in such films as, “Tron: Legacy,”  “Final Destination 5,” and “Mystery Alaska” After Stratford Brent moved to Toronto and started looking for work. He says “I got my first T.V. gig on a show called, “Night Heat” a Canadian crime show. ” Night Heat was one of the first Canadian shows to be broadcast by American network, CBS. Brent says he “had a lot of fun.”  on that show. From there Brent, “just kept auditioning and working. In the late 80’s everyone seemed to be going out to Vancouver to look for film work so I hitched a ride on a semi trailer working for the driver to get out to Vancouver and crashed on a friends sofa.” Those were the days, when actors, actress’s, and film professionals would flock to Vancouver for work! His favourite film to work on was, “Mystery Alaska.” Just because it was so much fun. A great group of people.” When I asked Brent about the challenges he faced he said,  “There are a lot of challenges in this business. The industry changes as the society changes and as an actor you have to follow suit. Everyday it’s something new. Internet, reality tv, twitter, social media, acting stays the same but the industry is always changing.” Brents future goals consist of, “writing more” and “talking to friends who are doing projects, and trying to do more of our own stuff.” I asked Brent about his character Rev Bem on Andromeda, since I have done prosthetics myself and I know how trying but also amazing it can be. He says, “Rev Bem was a lot of fun. Early mornings and lots of makeup though.” He, “would love to do another series but with his own face” I think I speak for the rest of us, when I say, that we would like that too Brent! I once again thank you for the opportunity and implore all my readers to go check out some of Brent Staits work. Till next time……………..
