Back in 1991 I covered the Vancouver filming of a B-movie called Silhouette for Fangoria, and the best thing about that, by far, was that I got to interview character actor Brion James.
If you don’t recognize the name Brion James, you’re not alone, but if you’re a fan of genre films I bet you recognize his face.
He’s played nasty villains in countless films, the best known being Blade Runner.
It was a hoot asking him about the ins-and-outs of playing a guy people love to hate. Like, did you know he once beat up Mork (Robin Williams) on an episode of Mork & Mindy?
Have a listen:
Sadly, James passed away from a heart attack in 1999 at the age of 54.
