5D is proud to announce that the first of its series of ‘5D Conversations with……’ has now been published to the new 5D Youtube channel, which can be seen at the link RIGHT HERE.
This first conversation features actor/musician Billy Blair, who featured in a 5D email interview a short while ago, which you can see at http://www.5d-blog.com/?p=585
“Born in El Paso, TX and related to the great Edgar Allan Poe, Billy knew what he wanted to do at the ripe age of 5 after experiencing Sesame Street and KISS. He comes from a musical background. His great grandfather led his big band during the early 1900’s in Mexico performing for some of history’s greatest figures such as Pancho Villa. He also had uncles and cousins, all which played in big bands and symphonies.
For all of Billy’s life, he was dedicated to music and still proceeds to endeavor this lifestyle. Being in numerous bands, he would experience touring the nation, playing in clubs, theaters, arenas and amphitheaters; fulfilling the dream and opening for some of the biggest names of rock.
By the mid 90’s, Billy decided to pursue in acting. He would develop his skills in theater at Richland College in Richardson, TX and would resume with taking private lessons from the greatest acting coaches in Texas. Building his resume with small, local indie films. Landing in a national commercial, then booking roles in bigger films like Jonah Hex starring Josh Brolin. He is known for some of his great work in films like The Last Stand starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Robert Rodriguez’s Machete, Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.”
In the Youtube video, Billy talks entertainingly about his varied career in the film and music industry – mentions go out to Robert Rodruigez, James Cameron, Edgar Allan Poe, Pancho Villa and Billy’s latest labour of love, his new movie, Cherokee Creek. He also talks about his other love, his rock band ‘Junk’.
