Chance, 2002 – Simon.  This film was written and directed by Amber Benson (Tara of Buffy).  Also includes Andy Hallet (Lorne of Angel) and David Fury (Writer for Angel and Buffy).

Interesting Notes:  He is left-handed.   For his first major role in “The Tempest” he was strapped, nearly naked, to a large wooden wheel for his entrance, so he is not self-conscious about appearing nude. He currently lives in Los Angeles but finds it hard to go to the beach since he can’t get a tan (being a vampire and all).  He gained the scar on his left eyebrow when he was mugged living in Queens.  To get his ‘Spike’ bleached blond hair he adds 4-7 packets of Sweet n low to his bleach solution, to take the edge off.

In July 2000 he won the sexiest male vampire award at the Nocturnal 2K convention in London England.  In 2001 he won the best-looking person award, beating out Jon Bon Jovi.  He keeps himself trim by not eating much meat, and eating lots of fruits and vegetables; plus he doesn’t drink much and he quit smoking.

Will be in Italy in the fall to start a new movie called Italian Heat.
