The Early Years

Back in my early 20s, I worked on set of the British film, Hamlet. A good friend of mine, Celestino Coronado, was the director of the film and asked me to do the hair.

Looking back, I realize how much fun I had on set and what a unique experience that was for me. I'm checking to see if I can get a copy of the film as it would be neat to see some of the work that I did 30-plus years ago! If I can get a hold if it, I'll post some images of the work.

Take a look at this image from the film. Recognize her? It's Helen Mirren from over 30 years ago! She was Ophelia and it was great to work with her. At the time, she was working her way up in her career - look at her now!
