With the last episode of the Black Tapes Podcast set to release on Tuesday, I want to publicly say Thank You to the people who made the show possible. And to our fans.
I hadn’t been an actor for almost 10 years when Terry contacted me out of the blue. (The last movie I had worked on was a Terry Miles film all those years ago.) He said that him and Paul had an audio project they were starting and they wanted me to play the host. I had just moved back from London and didn’t know what was next for me, so I said, “sure.” And suddenly I was an actor again.
Thank you Terry and Paul for hearing my voice when you were searching for your Alex Reagan. You’ve rekindled my love of acting and working in a creative team. Terry, thank you for putting up with my stutters, mumbles, giggles and word slurs. Paul, thank you for your hospitality at Casa Bae. Thank you both for the unlimited cups of tea and honey, and, above all, for making this project so fun to work on. I look forward to more Terry Miles podcasts and am loving Paul Bae’s newly-released show, The Big Loop.
Thank you Christian Sloan for being the best acting partner I could have asked for. Your dedication to the craft is inspiring and has helped me remember why I love acting so much. Thank you for finding those moments when Dr. Strand and Alex could move beyond the scene’s objective and have a tender moment or two. You are a true pro.
Thank you Tara Pratt for your boundless energy and great conversations in the car on the way to recording sessions. So many laughs…
Thank you to all the actors who made the Black Tapes Podcast come alive. It was so fun working with you in a medium that was new to most of us.
And, finally, thank you to the fans, who we wouldn’t have kept the show going for three seasons without; and who, in such unexpected numbers, joined in on the fun and kept listening until the end. It was a pleasure entertaining you. I have received lovely messages from so many of you and they’re truly appreciated.
Thank you for listing to the Black Tapes Podcast!
