Your story about Bill's perfect acting moment reminds me of one of my best moments. It was when I was on a crappy, never-to-be heard about tv series (that a friend was directing). I had become very frustrated with him and was pissed as all hell. I was thinking, "Ahh hell, I could do this better myself." All I wanted to do was KILL him!!!!

Unfortunately, I had talk show to go on that day. HIS talk show. Which was just as rinkie dink as his stupid series. But, ever the professional, I was committed to doing that show. "GOD DAMMITT!!! I WAS GOING TO DO IT!!!"

Of course, I would never let the audience see how pissed off I was. That would be unprofessional. So I sucked it up and as soon as the show started, I was Sal's best friend. It was my best bit of acting - EVER!!!! He had NO clue how angry I was. Bitch.

It is totally true, how things like that stay with you. That story happened at least 2 years ago (if not more). And I STILL remember it almost as if it was yesterday. If only I had kept the audio . . .

Damm, sure I got confused which one of you started the story, oh well. Life goes on I guess . . .

Okay, being your resident Aussie, something about Anne Wills'( story doesn't quite jibe.

You see the Logies (Australia's equivalent to the Emmys)have always been telecast from Melbourne which is a good 800 kilometers from the Adelaide Hills. Now perhaps they met at the Logies (Anne, I think still holds the record for highest number of personal Logies awarded)but Bill would have had to have been visiting Adeliade, which at the time, well even now, is a complete backwater (I doubt Bill even visited it on his most recent tour)for this to be true.

Anne was indeed a total livewire and a cheeky girl in her day, so maybe he did fly to Adelaide (known as 'The City of Churches') to spend time with her, if he did I am sure they had a marvellous time.

Yes Zap is in 'Where No Fan Has Gone Before'. That is the episode where the trial takes place (including the fabulous 'Crazy Captain Pike Chair')
