Tim Russ (Tuvok) Interview

Dan Madsen recenetly had the privelage of interviewing Tim Russ (Tuvok - Voyager) in an exclusive for  The interview covers Tim's acting career as well as his thoughts on the new JJ Abrams film 'Star Trek'.

Mania: Tim, when did you first realize that you wanted to be an actor?

Tim Russ: I would say it was in high school in theatre class. I really found it intriguing, fascinating and exciting. From there, I did a musical called You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown. By the time I got out of high school I thought, “This is really a lot of fun.” After being on stage and in front of an audience it was really incredibly exciting. I was “bitten” from that point on. I decided to study theatre in college and that was, at the time, my goal. I just thought about taking it for a degree. After I got a BS in theatre, I went back to Northern California and lived there for a couple of years. I have been playing music since I was sixteen years old so I was doing that also. I was supplementing my income with that until about 1981 when I took a break from everything and I decided that it was time to pursue acting professionally. I decided to make a move to Los Angeles and do that. It was actually something that happened in stages. (source
