Aren’t you Dave McClelland? and a return to Corrie….

I had an odd (for me) experience today…. delivering something to a stranger’s house, miles from home and to no-one I knew.

Knocked at the door and heard a youngster tell someone older to go to the door.

A nice teenage lad opened the door and I told him why I was there, making a delivery… and he said “I think I know you from somewhere…

Okay, so what may he have seen? I start mentally reviewing my career….. Emmerdale, Corrie , an episode of Law & Order: UK that always seems to be on the box… various other telly, some cult sci-fi (Lexx; The Dark Zone). I’ve had a lead in The Zombie King (renamed King Of The Dead for upcoming UK release, 26/10/2015) and nice parts in other films. I’ve done various theatre, but surely nothing recent or local this lad would have seen?

Aren’t you Dave McClelland?” he continues….

Bloody hell! Why yes I am, how did you know that? (expecting something from the above list or that I’d gone to school with his parents)….

Turns out he, his parents and friends watch my YouTube videos! He particularly mentioned the Henderson’s Relish mockumentary I made, What The Heck,” Episode 2 – Henderson’s Relish.

I was amazed and delighted that I was recognised for something that was all my own work…. You shout out in the wilderness and never know who will hear you… Thank you young man, you made my day!

Here’s the video that made me memorable…. to one person at least….

And some more news……

I was also able to tell this bright lad with superb taste that I am off to shoot an episode of Coronation St next week.

I cannot tell you more or I’d have to kill you ūüôā It will air in October.

Until next time dear reader, be kind and smile!

P.S.¬† I’d also like to add that there is a superb REAL documentary about Henderson’s Relish, aptly named RELISH. Saw it at the Sheffield DocFest, well worth seeing if you have the chance!

Bex and I had a fantastic time at the 25th Festival of Fantastic Films where THE ZOMBIE KING had the UK Premiere.

Met up with fellow actor George McCluskey and producers/actors Jennifer Chippindale and Rebecca-Clare Evans, filmmaker Natalie Kennedy, actor/comedy genius Emma Kenny Kennedy – and a whole bunch of Fantastic Fans, including Stephen and his sister, and bunch of really nice guys, one of whom was an engineer…. he mentioned that quite a lot. I wish I could remember names ūüôā
