I was at the horse farm site in the filming of the “LEGACY” pilot, all dressed in fashionable clothes of the period, really high styles for all involved. It was a lovely sunny, cool day at the training track of “EAGLE POINT FARM” in Hanover County VA. I spoke to Brett, who was watching, and introduced myself to him, as I do on all shoots I am a part of. I offered to help him with any needs in our community and thanked him for being in our places. He noted I was part of the main set. I was surprised that he would recall that from the script and cast listing.
From that day on he always was prompt and warmly addressed me as “Mr. Mayor.” He was very instrumental in having the “LEGACY” production company do a Christmas program for Richmond-area underprivileged children. The production manager dressed as Santa. Brett gave out gifts and entertained the 50 children at the main set location. Brett was visited with at the Graffitti Bar, where he enjoyed California foods and had great rapport with the owner. Brett was very proud of that splendid young child of his and his wife. On sets we spoke, me as grandparent, and they as new parents. Brett was a real fun guy on the sets…using gun trickery, rope twirling and acting out events of the day and mimicking other’s mannerisms. Brett was continually counseling and inquiring various directors to consider his suggestions and improving scenes effectiveness. He clowned and playfully toyed with the cast, including being a parent influence for that darling young actress, Sarah Rayne, who played Lexy.
Brett was involved with many activities in this community. Brett, bravo!! From your “Mayor.”
