Ode to an Acting Hero: Brian Dennehy
One of my all-time favorite actors of the stage and screen - Brian Dennehy - has passed.
Growing up he was an inspiration to watch on TV and in movies. In high school, when I had an idea that I wanted to become an actor in some capacity, my parents took me to New York City to see him play Willy Loman in Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman."
Looking back, I can think of more than enough to describe what I saw: Masterful, Mesmerizing, Powerful, Nuanced, Raw, Inspiring. Without a doubt, it played a significant part in my desire to pursue a life in performing arts.
Thank you Brian for sharing your talents with us and imprinting your legacy on the world. You will be missed.
