Prodigious writer Robert Hewitt Wolfe joins the podcast. He talks honestly about missing out on his dream Lord of the Rings project, the amount of time spent continuously looking for his next role and his ratio of 8 failures for every success - meaning hundreds of rejections in his long career.
He tells us about the relief of working on long-running shows, the excitement of being on Star Trek and the meagre budgets he had to work with Andromeda compared to today's blockbusters.
Robert also recounts a story about being fired from the show he created for cost reasons, although surviving longer than people thought, and how he used an inheritance to fund the beginning portion of his career - and how close he came to having to quit the business altogether.
