Interview:

Tucker Smallwood is a name not unfamiliar to a great many people. An actor, author and vocalist he has lent his considerable talents to a great many successful films and television shows. To 'Millennium' fans he will always be remembered for the powerful performance he delivered as angel of death, Steven Kiley, in the season two episode 'Goodbye Charlie'. The team at BackToFrankBlack are grateful that Tucker took time from his busy schedule to speak to us. BACKTOFRANKBLACK: Our thanks, Tucker for taking the time to speak to us. To begin I would like to note that 'Goodbye Charlie' deals, primarily, with assisted suicide as its narrative and, did so at a time when the debate surrounding it was not widely had. Was there an awareness amongst the cast and crew of Millennium that the stories they were telling were groundbreaking for the time?

TUCKER SMALLWOOD: I discovered after it aired that viewers came down on the side of their pre-existing positions on assisted suicide. If in favor, Kiley was perceived as an angel; if against, as a demon. At the time, it was controversial in the sense that Glen and Jim always write provocative, resonant stories.

BTFB: The premise of the episode sees the two protagonists charged with the task of deciding if Kiley is an angel or a devil and the denouement is intentionally ambiguous with regards to this, allowing the audience to draw it's own conclusions. When building a character such Kiley, is it necessary for the actor to make a judgment regarding the character's motives in order to portray him?

TS: I think that goes without saying, that an actor must always have a clear point of view about his character. I am pro-choice in all aspects of that concept and was always clear that my work was involved in service to humanity.
