“I was raised in a very religious home in Canada. I entered the American film business at the age of 16. When I landed the role of Clay Carlin on TV’s South Of Nowhere, I was excited about playing one of the teenagers on the show. The show centered around young people dealing with various issues that affect their daily lives.
At that time in my life, I thought that some of the episodes dealing with sexual orientation and alternative lifestyles were in conflict with my personal beliefs. Although, I have never made any derogatory remarks about sexual preference and have friends and many co-workers who are Gay and Lesbian, I quietly felt internal pressure to give up a great role on a great show.
I later realized that those around me, at that time in my life, were promoting and pushing their beliefs on me. Initially, I felt that they were my beliefs but in reality I was conditioned by the conservative religious views of my upbringing. I know now that what I went through is not uncommon to most young people: 1) we attempt to please those around us, and 2) we tend to accept the beliefs of those around us as our own. My experience both on and after South Of Nowhere has really changed my mindset and personal beliefs.
Anyone that knows me, knows that I’m caring person who is very sensitive to the feelings of others. I’m no longer an impressionable/naive young man, but rather a free-thinking 29-year old man. President Obama gave a stirring speech on race, prior to getting elected that opened the hearts and minds of a nation. Everyone on this planet has the right to self-expression.
I have been fortunate to work in Film & TV for 14 straight years. I have worked with many talented Actors, Producers and Directors who are Gay or Lesbian. My experience working on South Of Nowhere expanded my understanding and sensitivity to the plights of my Gay and Lesbian friends everywhere. Without it, I wouldn’t have evolved to my current level of acceptance, understanding and spiritual consciousness.
I will forever be grateful to the show’s execs, writers and cast members for a truly positive life changing experience. That’s really what the show was all about! I have been and continue to remain supportive to my friends and co-workers in their efforts to enjoy the same dignity, respect and rights due all citizens of this planet…without judgment.
To simply sum all up, when I was a child I thought as a child, when I became a man, I put away childish thoughts. South Of Nowhere has forever changed my life and hopefully the lives of many others.
