Trevor St. John‘s first acting gig was courtesy of the 1993 film “Benny & Joon.” Although he was only a stand-in for Aidan Quinn‘s character, Benjamin “Benny” Pearl,” the actor credits the experience for giving him that certain bug. “The energy and pace of the movie set really caught my interest and was the reason I chose Los Angeles over New York. I’ve wanted to relive that feeling ever since.”
Last week, Soap Opera Network featured a CENTER STAGE interview with “One Life to Live’s” legendary veteran, Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord). She opened up about the future of “OLTL,” working with the fresh, young faces on the show, and what it’s been like to have show creator Agnes Nixon back at the helm. And this week, we’re revealing how she feels about Robin Strasser (Dorian Lord), what it’s like working with Roger Howarth (Todd Manning) versus working with Trevor St. John (Victor Lord), and who she’d like to see return to Llanview!
In Hallmark Channel’s new film “Help for the Holidays,” actress Summer Glau (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) stars as Christine, one of Santa’s elves who is assigned the task of helping a little boy in Los Angeles as his family is in dire need of a wake up call. Eva La Rue (“All My Children”) and Dan Gauthier (“One Life to Live”) portray Sara and Scott VanCamp, the boy’s mother and father, whose Christmas gift shop, Holly Daze, is booming. As a result, Will (Mason Cook, “Spy Kids: All the Time in the World”) and his sister Ally (Izabela Vidovic, “Christmas Angel”) are often left unsupervised, with the exception of when Sara’s brother Dave (John Brotherton, “One Life to Live”) is available.
Enter Santa’s little helper, who interviews to be the kids’ new full-time nanny, while secretly hoping to bring happiness and joy back into the holiday.
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “One Life to Live’s” Trevor St. John (Todd Manning) to screen film short directed by former co-star Dan Gauthier(ex-Kevin Buchanan) at two upcoming film festivals.”The Art of Getting Over It,” tells the story of an angry and frustrated Cameron Clothier (St. John), who unleashes his rage on those who hurt him, all the while surreptitiously courting an angelic barista in his neighborhood coffee shop and, almost against his will, finding redemption in love. The 23 minute short was filmed in Trevor’s home town – Spokane, Washington. St. John served as writer, producer and actor in the film.
“I am proud of this film and even prouder that I could make it with my family and a dear friend,” says St. John. “The experience was one of the thrills of my life.”
The film came to be “after many hours of dressing-room conversation when Trevor and I co-starred in a project produced in New York,” said Gauthier.” We talked about working together on a film as creators and collaborators, bringing our very similar perspectives to the process. This is exactly the kind of film we talked about making.”
“Getting Over It” will be screened in Los Angeles on Monday, December 29 during the Beverly Hills Hi-Def Film Fest at the Fine Arts Theatre starting at 10:00 PM. In will debut in New York City on Sunday, January 4 during the New Filmmakers Festival at the Courthouse Theater starting at 7:15 PM.
“We are proud of our creation and I would absolutely love it if you have a chance to see if yourself.” – Trevor St. John.
