No Part Too Small

Posted by Ruok On March - 10 - 2008

For most of the past few weeks, I’ve been having a bout of depression. And it took a little role to snap me out of it.

Its really a small part; I accepted it because its gonna be screened on National Geographic, but the fact that it pays well and just takes one Saturday night also played a factor as well.

National Geographic. Imagine that. Its kinda like my first international stint.

The role was simple enough, no lines, just need to be comatose most of the time. And yet, they were very impressed with me; in particular, the scene where I had to react to the defibrillator while I was being revived.

Its nice to be appreciated, of course, but in truth, this really was a simple job for me. So I was kinda sheepish with the praise they were lavishing on me.

I never would have thought such a small role can lift the doldrums out of me.

It is as De Niro would say, “No part too small“.
