In Serling’s Footsteps
1428 Elm: Is there anything you personally want to explore, if True Terror gets renewed?
RE: If we get picked up, I would love to do what Twilight Zone did. About 3 or 4 seasons in, they started to put Rod Serling on the set. They would put him in a scene at the end of the show and there would be a merry-go-round or a library with crushed spectacles on the ground. The camera would look at that prop or look at a carousel horse and then it would pan away and there’s Rod Serling. He would do his wrap up there.
I am hoping since we shoot outside Richmond, Virginia (because there is so much history there) that I could do my wrap up on location at some point. Maybe we’ll be in an old hayloft or a field and then all of a sudden, the camera would just discover me there.
Or they could bring back a prop from an episode like an old sword or an old clock and put it with me. Let me handle it. I think having me link to the stories would be fun.
1428 Elm: While everything is on hold right now, are there any upcoming convention appearances that you want to make your fans aware of once business as usual resumes? Any future projects in the pipeline?
RE: I have lots of stuff in the pipeline but I am on non-disclosure agreements so I can’t share them with you. Everything is on hold because of the crisis. I just got word today that another convention has been postponed until June.
Basically, if we are all good soldiers and we stay home, have our soup and crackers, catch up on bingeing and our reading and just stay close to home, by the middle of June we can start figuring out how to get back to a new normal. It’s not the end of the world.
