HOLLYWOOD star Maxwell Caulfield, best known as Miles Colby in Dynasty, stars as film studio boss RF Simpson in Singin’ In The Rain at the Festival Theatre has revealed his dream of appearing at the Festival with wife, actress Juliet Mills.
In an interview in today’s Evening News he tells Entertainment Editor Liam Rudden, “I’ve been to Edinburgh a couple of times. Once to see our daughter at the Festival, she was in a touring production from the States. The Festival was unbelievable. The sheer variety of shows was just head-spinning.
“It made me think that Juliet and I ought to maybe put a two-hander together. Either that or I have to finally get off my duff and do one of the two or three one-man shows I have in mind.”
He continued, “I’ve done research on three separate situations, none of which I can talk about in case I get pipped to the post.
“That’s one of the bonuses of being on tour, I do have time on my hands to knuckle down and produce something that is worthy of maybe presenting to Festival audiences.”
Thoughtfully he added, “Also, as you get older in this business, you better develop some kind of ‘pension’. I’ve lived out in Hollywood for longer than I care to admit, but you realise that films and television are primarily a youth driven business. I’m fast coming up on 55, so, oh boy, I gotta read the signs.
“Doing the Festival would be great and, if I am wise, I will make it a two-hander, because Juliet is infinitely more accomplished,” he says gallantly.
Singin’ in the Rain, Festival Theatre, Nicolson Street, Tuesday-15 March, 7.30pm (matinees 2.30pm), £17.50-£17.50, 0131-529 6000
