I wouldn't necessarily
consider myself a 'Fan' but someone who appreciates an actor who takes great pride in the work he does. And that's exactly
what defines Dean McDermott. Someone who does like his work and actively seeks it out rather than wait for something
to come in.
His professional acting has proven to catch the
attention of the best in the industry so much to land a role in a feature film 'Open Range' with noteable stars as Kevin
Costner, Annette Benning and Robert Duvall.
In recent years I've had the chance meet Dean's aquaintance
a number of times while working as a volunteer for the the Motion Picture Industry Charitable Alliance (Okay, so I've
seen him from the other side of the accounting table for the majority of those years.) It was during the sixth
auction "Lights, Camera, Auction - Take 6!", when Dean and I made contact, no thanks to a friend of mine (waves
to Rae). But, I still need to remind folks that I do not know him personally and I highly doubt the poor bloke
would ever remember me if we crossed paths again!
However, in the times I have seen him at the auction's, nothing
more that can be said about Dean than that he is a truly giving and generous person. He has a great sense
of humour and sometimes can mess with someone's mind so good that you don't even know it until it hits you when it's
too late. This I can personally attest to!
The Motion Picture Industry Charitable Alliance have, in
the past, held six of it's fundraising auctions in Toronto, Ontario where Dean was a guest auctioneer.
You can get more information regarding The Motion Picture Industry Charitable Alliance and the auctions Dean has graciously
given his time to by going through the "Charity" link located on the home page.
In closing I hope you find this site very informative and hope to get you as much
information on any newer projects as I possibly can.
Any comments and suggestions are always welcome. To do so you can contact
me via e-mail (see the 'Contact Me' link) , with your thoughts and suggestions.
Don't forget to sign the 'Guest Book' to
let Dean know what you think of him or his career!
