[on her That ’70s Show (1998) character, Jackie Burkhart, switching boyfriends from Michael Kelso to Steven Hyde] I think her relationship with Steven has taught her to be less selfish.

Happy Birthday: Catherine Bell

Festival Reviews

catherinebell.jpgCatherine Bell

Born: August 14, 1968 in London, England, UK

Not as much as I used to, but I use the Internet for everything. I use it for information. Like if I’m planning a trip or something, I’ll check out the place I’m going to.

It’s changing a bit, but the thing in LA is everyone is either in the industry, or knows someone who is in the industry. So, they don’t let on that they recognize you, that’s what I’ve found out.

I get letters from kids, teenagers and young girls who just want to be Mac. I’ve had quite a few people actually say that they’re going to become a Marine or a JAG lawyer because of me… the character. I think that’s pretty cool!

I think my uncle was probably the biggest influence in my life. We grew up in the same house, and he was just…

LISA, Twitter Short Story, by Robert Fleet

WILDsound Festival

Watch the Short Story LISA, by Robert Fleet:

Get to know writer Robert Fleet:

1) What is your very short story about?

The sad end of an affair.

2) What motivated you to write this story and submit it to the festival?

Motivation for the story was from life observation itself: in an affair there is always someone hurt. For submission to the festival: I was intrigued by the idea of culling a full story down to its basic heart.

3) What movie have you seen the most in your life?

John Ford’s The Searchers – followed closely by Roman Polanski’s Chinatown and Jean-Luc Godard’s Weekend.

4) How many scripts and stories have you written?

5) What artists would you love to work with?

I’ve been lucky enough…
