My deep thanks go to Soap‘s Dutch Leitner, actor Donnelly Rhodes, for sharing his Soap memories with me yesterday, as well as his thoughts on the acting profession overall. Let me say right off that the little dribs and drabs on IMDB and other places online don’t begin to explain just how seat-of-the-pants Mr. Rhodes’ career was when he began.
Incidentally, for those who haven’t had the opportunity to see him in arguably his most popular role to date, check out this scene with Rhodes playing Det. Leo Shannon in Canada’s Da Vinci’s Inquest. If you’re in the U.S. and have access to Netflix, the first season of this gritty crime drama is available on its streaming service. (The clip above will give you a taste of what to expect.)
