Canadian actor Art Hindle talks about winning a Gemini Award for his work on the TV series E.N.G., and how his example helped to inspire a young Dave Foley to pursue a career in showbiz.
He's on the show tonight, along with CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
"I have a funny story about when I won my Gemini. Dave Foley, who'd won for 'Kids in the Hall' comes up to me, and he says Mr. Hindle - and I said, call me Art - and he says, 'I owe this to you.' And I said, 'Who are you, and why do you owe this to me?' I didn't know what Kids in the Hall was. And it turns out, that he lived in Creemore and when I lived in the States, I bought a house in Creemore because my kids had responded to living in a small town when I was doing Stratford. And so we moved them up to Startford - ah, Creemore - and he was there. And I used to come back and visit my kids all the time, go down to the ballpark and organize games and all that kind of stuff for all the kids... and Foley was one of the kids, I didn't know, I don't remember... but he said, that immediacy made him realize that the entertainment business was this far away. And that's how he credited me with it."
