    Sison, Ramon

    Born and raised in a small town in the Philippines, Ramon showed dancing and musical talents at an early age. His parents, Florentina and Salustiano Sison, conservative landowners with substantial landholdings, encouraged him to become a doctor but discouraged him from the uncertainties of pursuing a musical or showbiz career. He followed his parents' advice. However, he could not refuse when offered a role in a movie and later opportunities to play the piano and act in radio and television programs while attending the University of the Philippines pre-med and medical school in Manila. After obtaining his medical degree in 1955 he went to Georgetown University for post-doctoral specialization. He practiced medicine in the mid-West for nine years where he played piano in a jazz band with medical colleagues in Springfield, Illinois. During those years he also played double bass with the conservatory symphony of MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Illinois. Shortly after moving west to Beverly Hills, California, with no intention of pursuing an acting career in Hollywood, he found himself one day in 1976 playing the role of medical officer opposite Gregory Peck in a hospital scene of "MacArthur". Since 1976 he has appeared in a number of movie, TV and equity-waiver stage productions in Hollywood. He has been active as president or member in many community, civic and professional organizations in Southern California. He has been president of the Philippine Medical Association of Southern California and the University of the Philippines Alumni Association of Southern California. He was 1st vice-president of the Association of Asian Pacific American Artists which annually presented the Jimmy Awards. He served the State of California for six years as member of the California Medical Board by appointment by then Governor Jerry Brown. For sixteen years he served the federal government as a reserve army medical officer and served to rank of full Colonel. In 1991 he was knighted "Chevalier De Grace" into the Ordre Supreme Militaire Imperial Orthodoxe Constantinien De Saint-Georges in Tarragona, Spain. He is a lifetime member of Mensa. - Author: Ramon Sison

    Hale, Georgina

    Georgina Hale is a accomplished stage actress who has made many memorable forays in cinema. Most notably in the films of Ken Russell including her performance as Alma Mahler, in a wonderful and visually rich biopic on the composer Mahler which she won a BAFTA (British Acadamy Award) for. Two other standout performances were in Russell's notorious The Devil's and the Twiggy musical The Boyfriend in which she deliciously plays Fay, camping it up, in a backstage lesbian sub plot. She has made in-joke cameo's in two further Russell films; Lisztomania and Valentino. Unfortuently roles were not forthcoming after her BAFTA win (who knows why?) and she made some pretty bad movie choices such as tacky Joan Collin's The World Is Full Of Married Men and McVicar as well as the occasional stunner such as Butley, written by playwright Simon Gray. Georgina has appeared in many of Gray's stage plays (many have been filmed for British televion with her starring) along side Alan Bates and Glenda Jackson and continues to work in British theatre. Georgina has made many appearances as guest star in televison series including: Upstairs Downstairs, The Ladykillers, Murder Most Horrid, The Vicar of Dibley, The Protectors, One Foot In The Grave, Three episodes of Doctor Who and many many more. She has starred in two television series; Budgie, a successful series in the Seventies and in the early ninties a cult childrens series based around a witch like figure called T-Bag. Most recently she has appeared in a comic role in Preaching To The Perverted in which her character points out that sometimes one has to debase one's self to further one's career. This film may not further her career (at age 55 she does a Sharon Stone under-table leg trick) but it will add to her growing reputation as one of the UK's favorite cult actresses. - Author: strangeboy76@hotmail.com

He has two younger brothers, Jimmy Don, born in 1958 and now deceased, and John David, born in 1969. He has been married 5 times and has 3 children: daughter Amanda (with Gatlin); sons William and Harry (both with Cherniak). Billy Bob began his artistic career as a musician, playing drums and singing in a band called Tres Hombres, which once opened for Hank Williams, Jr. In 1981 he moved to Los Angeles with childhood friend Tom Epperson to pursue an acting and writing career. On the side Billy Bob also sought work as a singer and drummer. He and Epperson tried for years to sell their scripts but no one was buying. During those rough times, Billy Bob neglected his health and subsequently landed in the hospital with heart problems due to malnutrition. In 1992 Billy Bob starred in "One False Move", a movie he co-wrote with Epperson. The team finally received attention because of this work, which was very well received in Hollywood. Suffice it to say that the rest is... - Author: Sage Giordano
