There is one person who has been an unexpected source of inspiration for me for many years. That it is a great actor may hardly surprise, since I am already since childhood a huge film enthusiast. But what may seem unexpected for many, probably even for film connoisseurs like me, will be the name. It’s an actor who I see as a great example of how there’s often much more behind the facade than meets the eye.
We are talking about a truly great comedian who has long since proven that he is capable of much more, is more than general appearances would suggest….
“The man of thousand faces”, a man so absorbed in his role, not only as an actor, but especially as a human being, so that he has the ability to be anything and anyone, even if initially he was mainly oriented to his great role model Jerry Lewis, a comedian from the 60s, whom I also celebrated in my childhood and youth. Yes, I used to watch old black and white movies with my parents and grandparents back then and just loved it 😊.
He is indeed a person with 1000 faces and that not only in terms of his great face fair, because he is also a father, musician, philosopher, artist, painter, inspirer, spiritualist, Method Actor, role model and much more, without ever having learned some of it on the classical way, a multi-talent and autodidact as he is proverbial in the book.
He is one of those people who live life to the fullest and who showed me that anything is possible. 💖
The following is a video about his personal story, which I interpret as “from nobody to personality”. His artwork is also exciting.
