Other non-acting related work, hobbies or charities (not skills) in which this actor is involved (1 or 2 word descriptions):
I was working for Boston Duck Tours as a driver/captain! Nothing like fighting downtown rush hour Boston traffic in WWII surplus :) We got to choose our own character to give the history tour, so I wanted someone from Boston, instantly recognizable, and from the 1940's since we were cruising around in a WWII vehicle. So I did a spoof of JFK during WWII, wearing a period Navy uniform, and talking in the Kennedy accent. My character was "Lt. John F. Kenneduck." And YOU are aboard PT 409. (She's real fine, my 4 oh 9!) The vehicle itself became my moving stage, five performances a day, hour and a half each, 4 or 5 days a week, interacting with an audience of 32 kids and/or tourists each time entertaining and teaching. Great fun! Utterly exhilarating and exhausting. I did little else for 3 years. I consider it as my apprenticeship doing repertory theater.

Edge of Darkness Earning a Nickname

So after a week or 2 hiatus from EOD, I get the call to do more driving. And when I show up to set, my name is listed as Chris "Clutch" Conte. Stu informs me, "Did you know you're listed as "Chris 'Clutch' Conte?" "That's 'Clutch Cargo Conte' to you, pal.....and if you remember that odd cartoon, you're older than I am... :)



But this brings me to the subject of nicknames. The crew now universally addresses me as "Clutch." That same night, cruising down 495, Mike W. hit a deer, or more… Continue

Edge of Darkness Driving at South Station

The full story for those of you who worked in Boston today (10/16/08) and were driving around South Station. Yes, I was broken down! I didn't even get one lap around the route, and the clutch cable in my 1993 Volvo snapped, leaving me with 5 gears of neutral! :O Desperately I yanked on the shift, pushed pedal to floor, but no go. So there I was, blocking traffic. I put my hazards on. The horns started. I waved them around me. More horns. I opened the driver door, and threw every ounce of my 190… Continue
