Provoke? Strong choice of words when all I wanted to do was refute your exaggeration of Mr. McManus’ choice of going gray..it’s all good he can run around with flaming green hair and he’d still rock the universe.. 😉 Judging from people that got to experience his personal charisma first hand I can tell you five minutes after you talk to him you won’t notice the color of his hair.. 😛
No wonder his hair has gone grey.
He most likely is just someone who started to go grey early. I know he was getting his roots touched up towards the end of season 4. So he had at least started then.[/quote]
According to sources at the MichaelMcManus.com site Michael went gray very early in this 30’s. If you go back and look at some of his early tv shows and films you will see he has gray hair even in some of those earlier works of his. For example in Hard to Forget, King Lear, Secret Adventures of Jules Verne and even a couple of candid shows in between seasons 2 and seasons 3 of Lexx he was gray haired, he had to keep his hair dyed during the filming of Lexx because his own hair was being woven into the wig *weasel* so the state of his career has nothing to do with his hair. I personally think he looks fabulous in gray hair..Michael can work if he chooses and right now he chooses to look for roles he really prefers.
MM talks about the stigma of working in sci fi, comparing it to working in porn – nice work if you can get it, but potential employers are worried about the association.
He also talks about BD being another ”excellent actor” chronically ”unemployed or underemployed”.
I just wonder how they manage to make ends meet or get through the day without wanting to jumping off a cliff. In the video interview, he talks about acting on stage…to completely empty theatres and/or few performances. The theatre might be where his heart lies, but audiences seem completely disinterested.
No wonder his hair has gone grey.
What interview were you watching? It just couldn’t have been the latest one done in Orlando..BD is one hard working actor and has done countless movies. Mr. McManus was in a play in Canada for the Caravan Theatre and was quite the hit! Ellen is one very hard working woman as is Mrs. Zentilli! So your talking about how they make ends meet doesn’t make sense..there was a reunion in Orlando and fans were quite estatic to see them again.
As for Mr. McManus doing plays in empty theatres that wasn’t true, what is true is the theatre wasn’t packed to overflowing and he and his troupe did do the entire run only they chose not to do the extension on the plays! As for his hair going gray, well when you start aging you honestly don’t expect it to stay dark forever do you? If you do then you’ve found the secret to long life!
Thanks for such a great chat, Brian and Ellen, the time went by too quickly! The chat log is very large, so I’ve posted a link to it on my site and ignore the time stamps on it, it would have taken way too long to take them out…enjoy!
I received my MegaCon 2007 brochure in the mail today. And I see that Brian, Xenia, and Michael are scheduled to attend! Very cool!
Will there be any sort of fan gathering like there was in 2003? I’m seriously considering attendance.
If it can be arranged, I’d like to conduct more video interviews like I did at the 2003 convention. (See them here at SadGeezer.com in the Lexx section.) It would be great to get an interview with Mike. This time around, I hope to have better lighting for Xenia and Brian! 😉 And, if Sad will accept them, I’ll submit the new video interviews to SadGeezer.com.
MegaCon 2007 will be held February 16th – 18th, 2007 in Orlando, Florida. Here is the website where you can read more information:
So I read you want to conduct interviews with the cast and just wanted to give you a heads-up you’ll have to ask Beth at Megacon and she will forward the request to the appropriate people but it has to go to her first in order to line up interviews with the cast. Gotta keep it orderly ya know 😀
Yes dear Lexxians there will be another Con that our dearly beloved cast will be attending. Brian Downey, Xenia Seeburg and Michael McManus have signed on to attend Megacon.
Have all the information and soon at http://www.lexxverse.com breaking news will have all Lexxians buzzing with some fabu surprises.
Here’s a tidbit to tidy you over..Brian Downey is busy in a movie working with Nigel Bennett! That’s it boys keep busy giving us more and more of your talents that we so enjoy watching!
Till the next time..stay Lexxy!
Lots of people went, but not sure if anyone from here did. Apparently one of the major Russian sites was offered a lot of exclusive stuff from that year, but I understand there were conditions and things attached, so we may or may not see that. Ah well. Perhaps he will join Xenia in Orlando this February.
Plenty of pictures were taken by Angel, CheshireCat, Jerhume, Goblin and Veyron. They are up at http://www.Michael-McManus.com for all to see. Some video interviews were taken by Chatins but sadly his camera malfunctioned so that’s up in the air, maybe we’ll get to see and maybe not, it’s up to him. Meantime enjoy the pictures Maya has so generously put up on her site.
Dang it Micro..whattya want a percentage of the cut? If you’ve any more of those silly buttons in your closet put ’em up on ebay again and stop whining about it..figgy’s got eat too ya know!
You don’t see anybody else complaining about selling their lexx crap for a profit anyplace else..so live and let live..7th June 2004 at 6:49 pm in reply to: I am curious. What does it take to get banned here? #71595
I hoped not to come back but it seems yet again I have to defend myself and my friends. So..
I’m not sure what argument you’re discussing, Lexxlurker. I’m not even
sure if you’re familiar with any of the history of the people involved.
Suffice it to say, there’s not been any question of pornography,
swearing or anything else in this argument. If you’re making
accusations, then it appears you’re not doing anything to keep this
discussion from getting resolved, in fact it looks as if you’re
deliberately making inflammatory remarks that is just aggravating the
situation. Maybe you should think before you speak. Mod or no mod.
If the people that post here get treated with respect, maybe they’d do
the same. But if people get insulted, harrassed or other activities by
mods or whomever, why should they treat you with respect you didn’t
earn?. Just being a mod doesn’t’ give you the right to be obnoxious.
Madam there is no need for you to expend any of your precious energy banning me..as I quit..seeing as any hint of fairness on this bboard is an impossibility..using moderator privileges to abuse and be egotistical seems to be your forte..I leave you to it..stew in it..
using your personal feelings to ban Maya seems to have clouded your judgements as a moderator and I do not care to be a part of this bboard any longer…
Rest in peace…
Deleted in many threads now.
Now am I going to be banned also for defending a good friend?
Deleted in another thread and now in this one. Lady Jade Maya may email me or Tony or Headge all she likes. Please do not re-post this. – theFrey
Well I haven’t received any emails from her.
Maya was permentantly banned a long time ago.
Sorry milady I beg to differ with you on your statement..if she was banned she wouldn’t have been posting yesterday! Using the same name and same ISP! This was done recently, very recently..and still no explanation as to why..awaiting your response to my query now.
Edit…and also for your edification she sent the email to the site admin..SadGeezer himself..that’s why you didn’t receive an email from her asking for an explanation..but since you chose to answer my post..I want a full explanation for the reason for her ban now..
How do you like your potatoes?
Hashed, mashed, french fried, any way you serve ’em I’ll eat ’em. Potatoho would’ve been the place for me.
The LEXX probably should’ve hit Idaho up for a few potatoes, but since they didn’t, where else do you think they should’ve gone?[/quote]
Having done the rainforest in the Amazon..New York would have been a hoot!
Same Q forward!
And, sexecutioner, you are, it would seem, a twat in BOTH universes!!
Sir Plif! You are insulting the twats of the two universes! For shame! You leave those little twits of a twat alone!
Lexx.com is evil!!!, its run by facist moderators!!!!, the reason why lexx.com was’nt working is because I put a poax on it!!
🙄 Okay first of all its spelled POX! Second…by your avator I see that you’ve managed to sink to a whole new level..and thirdly..well I’ve nothing to say after that..oh wait..yes I do..facist moderators? You wish! It’s run by Gela and attendants! LOL forgive me Storm and Mandrid..and she wouldn’t play by your silly rules so ya got bounced…get the hell over it already..grow up..tie your shoe laces..blow your nose..go to school and learn something..get a job..earn money..become a man who’s worth something.. and then maybe just maybe a lady will pay you a compliment..instead of earning yourself a quick slap to the face!
Have a nice day love!
Why does what Stormie just posted sound ominous?
Relax..breathe..meditate..it will all work out in the end..
Oh the second one for sure, I like that one the best and would love to have one for me even though I won’t be able to make the DragonCon..dang!
remember God Gave Rock n Rooooooll to you
Little Richard…my bad.. 😕
Harry Potter was written for the little one’s..JK Rowlings did intend for it to be read by pre-teens..that was her target audience and anything to get those kids reading is a positive..for an adult it’s to be taken in the context of entertainment….so don’t be to hard on the Harry Potter books..I’m sure if you stepped into a library you’ll find something more to your liking.. 🙂
