Mansbridge One on One: Colm Feore

The Story

Colm Feore likes to do a lot of research to prepare for his roles - but there is such a thing as going overboard, says the Canadian actor. "Knowing that the guy had oatmeal with cranberries for breakfast is immaterial," he jokes. In this 2001 episode of Mansbridge One on One, Feore talks about his upcoming blockbuster film, Pearl Harbour. He also discusses his years of performing Shakespeare on stage, but stresses that he doesn't consider stage acting to be superior to film: "Acting is acting is acting."
