My Big Hollywood Career

When I first began this blog, I wrote about being an extra for a location shoot here in San Francisco.  It was for the TV series Party of Five.  I was in London when “my” episode was broadcast, and the later seasons of the series have not yet been released on DVD.  It’s taken fifteen years, but today I finally got to see my big moment onscreen.  It’s season four, episode 6: Immediate Family, which aired on October 29, 1997.  I walked behind Julia (Neve Campbell) and Griffin (Jeremy London) as they strolled through Alamo Square.   Here’s the scene, followed by a slow motion clip of my walk through.  I only know it’s me because of the hat I was wearing.  Such exciting stuff!

 

Here’s the photo I took of my friend and Jeremy London at the Legion of Honor the day before, where we watched another scene being filmed.   That night in Alamo Square, once we were done filming, we got London to autograph her copy of the photo.   We didn’t want to bother him too much, so mine isn’t signed.

Jeremy London, 1997

So, my Hollywood career ended almost as soon as it began, with a couple of seconds of actual screen time in a dimly lit park on a chilly San Francisco night.  It was fun while it lasted.

  4. Now one of my favorite memorable TV moments (I never watched the show when it was on and now I know why – they didn’t call you back as a running character – well, maybe not running). Fun!
