So i'd like to welcome to the show. Richard karn welcome. Thank you thank you very much. That was a wonderful intro. Well i'm really excited because there's even more than that that you have done. You've done a lot more on hallmark type movies and family feud there's even more to you than just that but i've got to ask you something. How did you know in the fifth grade that this was going to be something that you were going to strive for. I i really. I didn't i. But i remember that. Fifth grade sleigh vividly because i I think it was something that the teacher wrote to be. Honest with you. It was it was about thanksgiving. And i was the child but ate too much and then i have this dream where everything that i eight put me on trial. You know like the turkey mashed potatoes and everything and i remember making my own prop at a prop that. I used an old brown bag and i. I made a drumstick out of it. As very proud of that. But i distinctly remember standing offstage about to go on and think literally thinking i can just walk away. I i don't have to go out there. I think a an. It'll be okay. And then i walked on stage and it was a transforming in fifth grade and i just kind of kept finding that In school plays in school sports. I did. I did a lot of things i had. I had a great childhood. And i did Community theater in high school which was set up because of our high school drama teacher. Ms wills she put together this kind of winter. One act festival where we directed we put. We cast it. We did it all ourselves. Students and she had professionals from seattle area. Come in and and kind of first second third best play best director best supporting actor you know all that kind of stuff and as a sophomore. I got this best supporting actor. Which was you know i i. It came out of left field. I didn't expect that. Because i really didn't know how to create a character. At that point i was just doing. I think i was doing an impersonation of poland which you know. Most of your viewers won't even remember poland. I was just doing that and throwing it into that character. And again i get this and which led to doing summer theater that summer the bath house theater how find is that our childhood brings back so many memories of dreams and different things and when it comes back to this i just could feel i got the you know the hairs on my arm standing up when you were talking about some of these memories that you had because it just invoke a lot of my own at the same time and also the same excitement that as you're talking about it i could just feel yours as well and i think that that's really neat but you moved on from there to and Doing so led you to getting a degree. Now is your degree in england. not no actually England was my sophomore year. There was an exchange program with queens college in new york university of washington. We went over for six months and we did a at the edinburgh festival so we lived in edinburgh scotland for a month. We did a play at the robin hood theater and nottingham home and we did the play in wales and three months in london and we had teachers from different schools in london. Bristol bic Gosh what are the other schools royal academy You know fencing. Teachers dialect coaches acting coaches movement. All that kind of stuff for six months. And then when i came back to the university of washington i addition for a professional training program which was a three year program which she either got a masters or bfa or something like that but they only took about sixteen into each class or that and there were probably five six hundred kids addition across the country for these programs. And i got into the one at the in my hometown university of washington and and ended up doing three years there and then moving to new york. I wasn't sure if there was some kind of connection with the university in something that was going on in england and that was the connection there. So you know if there was some some degree that they didn't know how that works. So this is this is kinda neat l. Let me ask you though is far as acting goes and what your experience was bear in another country and here is there a big difference. There was a growing up. Okay it being home and going to another country and experiencing all that stuff while you're also enacting class. Which is you know. it's it's a lot of times it's therapy for a lot of people you know. They're working through issues and stuff like that as they try to find the truth in in plays where you know you could be a murderer you could be. You know all sorts of things and you have to bring those that stuff from your past. Which you know can dredge up some things like that. But i don't know i just i. I loved it and the season that i had in london was. I could write a book about just the theater that i went to when i was living in in in london. Because i got to see jimmy stewart in harvey. I got to see richardson. Gielgud a no-man's-land alan bates and otherwise engaged. I saw betty davis just talk about her life. Oh my goodness. I saw lulu play. Peter pan with ron moody.

The local paper had to follow up their puff piece with a verdict that kicking the stalls was quote crushingly unfunny. Woefully overlong and almost totally lack of originality.
