|RIP, James MacArthur.|
Jimmy MacArthur was a nice man and a good actor. He had without question the best job on the original Five-O series set.
Jimmy got paid full time hanging out, enjoying life and playing in
his apartment. The clincher was he only came on the set once or twice a week to do his part .
|James MacArthur as officer|
He always got along well with the crew and autograph seekers. We always had fun with him.
One day Jimmy received a call about 6 am from the make up artist. "Please come for make-up you are needed on the set."
artist apply his makeup.
The Company caterer would send him a light breakfast with fresh fruits ,coffee and a sandwich, he would try eating while having his makeup applied. I wish I had photos of that! ;-)
While being made up one day the makeup artist and I took a clean powder puff and put it between two slices of bread and handed it to him while he took a bite of the powder puff sandwich ...ha ha ha,...he jumped up from his chair,opened his eyes and laughed hysterically You can't do that to other actors. Jimmy was one of the boys and did not have an attitude that he was any better than anybody else. We all loved him.
Acting is not all ice cream and apple pie ,it's serious hard work.
Studying the scripts at home day and night before going on camera, knowing where to stand or move so as not to block the lighting on other actors. There are a million and one things to do without looking awkward or staged.
Time is money in a movie production. It costs thousands of
dollars every minute. If it is a fight scene, he or she needs to learn the moves to avoid injury. Can you imagine what happens to an actor if he or she is injured?
The scenes taken with them have to be scrapped or replaced, that's
money lost !!!
So you want to be a high priced actor ? Good luck.
