Leland

Actor

I started my acting career in 2001 when I was asked to join a Western Theater Team. I was very fortunate to work with the best actors of the day.

Me being a newbie I watched those actors intensely.

Learning from them as I go honing out my skills as I work with them on different scene’s.

After 6 month of apprenticeship I was asked to be on the set of my first Hollywood Movie “Deadwood” starring Kieth Carradine. I was a dealing in saloon No. 13. For those thirteen hours of work, I absorbed a wealth of information that I use to this day.

My second Movie I preformed in was “The Life and Times of Jack London” The film was set in the year, 1896 in the Yukon Terriory. I was cast as a preacher trying to save the life of Jack London who was on his death bed dying of scurvy. After my scene, I received a standing ovation from the cast & crew. I recognized then I could move people’s emotions with my acting. I loved acting so much I built my own Wild West Town with thirteen buildings called The Triple D Ranch in Pine Grove, California.

Entertainment

Being an entertainer is another form of acting, putting on a show for an audience. Whether it be Master of Ceremonies, Ambassador or preforming in a parade has always been an honor.
