INTERVIEW: Steve Lund of ‘Bitten’

Steve Lund It’s kind of hard not to enjoy an interview when you get to talk about Indiana Jones, superpowers, and Boba Fett mugs. Recently I had the pleasure of conducting a very fun interview with actor Steve Lund who will be appearing in the upcoming show Bitten. Lund will be playing the character Nick, a werewolf who is a fun loving guy and runs his own bar. In this interview Lund talks about his character on Bitten, how Indiana Jones inspired him to become an actor, his thoughts on the meanings behind different superpowers, and his favorite comic book movie.

It was a lot of fun chatting with Lund and you guys should definitely check him out. After the interview we geeked out a bit over how much fun conventions can be. Yes, he is pretty cool.

How is it you got into acting?

Well I always wanted to be an actor when I was really young. I always tell people that Indiana Jones was the reason why I got started, hence my Skype name (his Skype handle is an awesome reference to that character).

It’s a very awesome Skype name, by the way.

Thank you! I always like to do weird names with these usernames. Sometimes I feel it would be too generic to use my name. I don’t know, I just try to get a little creative. They’re misinterpreted a lot of the time, but I don’t care. (Laughs). Anyways, when I was really young I was dressing up like Indiana Jones every single day. I’d go to the mall and I’d have the whip, I had the hat, I had the gun, I had a man purse that I’d put stones into and relics and whatever I would find. That was it for me. I was telling people that I was going to be an actor. You know when you’re a small kid and you don’t have a lot of knowledge of what a career path is and somebody asks you what you want to be and you say, “Oh, I want to be an astronaut,” or, “a doctor.” I said I wanted to be an actor. It’s pretty cool twenty years later to be able to still say that.

Jurassic Con 2012

Jurassic Con 2012

Frank and Son’s Collectible show hosted the first Jurassic Con this past weekend at Rowland Heights, California. Frank and Son’s is a biweekly “convention” that is opened twice a week. Think, Kowloon City for nerds or as I liked to compare it, a Farmer’s Market for nerd collectors! Jurassic Con consisted of props from the actual Jurassic Park movies, plus other dinosaur related movies, television shows, artwork and actual archaeology finds.
