    Brings back great memories for me..
    Saw this guy on the 6 oscar winning "Platoon" set whilst I was acting at being a wounded G.I (extra).
    I watched the whole Edsa end game play out on TV until the crumbling Admin TV network was taken over and shut down.
    Crazy time to be here!

    MANILA—He flew to the Philippines to shoot what would turn out to be one of the best war films ever made, "Platoon."

    But just as he did, Hollywood actor Willem Dafoe found himself stuck in the country, in the tail-end of what would eventually go down in world history as one of the best examples of a nonviolent revolution.


    "My plane was the last plane in because there was a revolution," he said, referring to the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution, in a Vanity Fair video in which he recalled his entire acting career.

    A close friend of mine (now deceased) was also an extra in that movie.
    (Great movie, and a great book too :like: )

    I was in a lot of TV progs, adverts, and movies myself, both in the Phils and Hong Kong, from 1990 on.
    Even had some small speaking parts. :D
