Jeremy Roberts' Millennium Cast Profile
I was born in Birmingham, Alabama some forty-four years ago, and was the eldest of four siblings. My brother and sisters hadn't been born yet, and life was kind of crazy there in Alabama. Escaping Alabama in the middle of the night while only the age of three, my mother took us toward Hollywood where I suddenly found myself living in the place that would play a major role in my future career.
When I was seven, my mother married. I remember wearing this little white suit and crying while watching the ceremony. I don't know why I cried, but there I was crying in my little white suit. It was the same suit that I would then wear when my mother and new stepfather whisked me away to the glitz of Las Vegas. I wore it for, like, seven days straight! They just kept washing it for me to wear again and again, because I really didn't have anything else to wear. Though these times were at first hard, it would pass, and within a few years my stepfather would adopt me, right after the family returned to California.
By the time I was seventeen, our nation was deeply embroiled in the Vietnam War. I asked my father to sign the papers, and that's when I joined the Marine Corp. I was in boot camp for what seemed an eternity, and it was a nightmare, the beatings and shit, and it seemed to just go on forever. When that was done, I got sent to 'Nam. I was stationed in Saigon, at the embassy. The war was winding down and we were nearing the end. It seemed, in my experience, that I saw more violence before I left boot camp than after.
The last days of my career in the Marines were spent working on the GPS-22 computer. We'd practice launching missiles with it. I remember someone jokingly yelling, 'Who has his finger on the button that could destroy the world?' and I shouted back with a laugh, 'I do!'. We were kinda crazy then.
Soon though, I returned to civilian life. There I did a lot of different jobs. I drove a truck, waited and bussed tables, and even worked at a golf course that celebrities frequented. I was a bartender on the 19th green and I'd serve guys like John Wayne, George Burns and I even remember Tom Selleck coming in back before he'd made it big. It was a great job. It was at this time I was honing a different type of skill on the side - acting.
One of my ambitions was to do all of the Shakespeare plays. I studied the language and wanted to know everything there was to know about Elizabethan English. It's like another language. It wasn't until I was twenty-five, however, that I got serious about acting and stage work, travelling with the American Conservatory Theater. Years later, I would begin landing roles on television and film. Some fans may remember me as "Mister Valtane" in STAR TREK VI: THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY. I later reprised the role on VOYAGER, which told the early days of the friendship between Tuvok and my character. It was all very cool. Which, when I think back, is an understandable sentiment given how much I favored television as a pastime during the sixties.
I grew up with the television. I'd get home from school watching afternoon tv, downing about a loaf of bread, making toast, while watching tv. Then my mother would feel lonely late at night and wake me up to come in and watch the late movie with her. Movies and television were a major part of my life from early on.
Today, I contribute to the television habits of kids today who are a lot like what I was by playing on syndicated shows like the XENA and HERCULES series.
Interestingly, it was on the set of XENA that I first met Josh Becker and where we first discussed my being in RUNNING TIME. I was kind of scared at first with what Josh wanted to do. The whole 'real time' thing was unnerving. But Josh explained that it was no different than doing a play. With that, I joined the cast of RUNNING TIME. With that behind me, I now enjoy being a character actor and love getting roles like that of "Patrick" in RUNNING TIME. In fact, I'd look forward to continuing to make a career of playing good Supporting roles in independent films.
