Default A Suit Actor's Take

Here's something interesting that I saw on RangerCrew

I have to warn you ahead of time that I edited the quote just to include the main parts of the story that relate to the Power Rangers series however the article that RangerCrew linked to features more swear words so read it at your own risk.

Okay, you asked for it. Here's one of my stunt jobs as a villain on second season of Power Rangers.

Guess which one I am. Hint: "Your power now belongs to Lord Zed."



































































At 4:39 I almost died.

They said "Run until you see the edge of the cliff, then stop." But I had Putties flipping all around me and only a two inch eye hole to see out of and it was down by my navel. See the edge of a cliff as I run? Not likely. Fun times. During that Spring I played Stag Beetle, Invenusable Fly Trap and Octophantom. All bad-to-the bone villains. Even posed for Stag Beetle's action figure which I still have Mint In Box.

I would come home to find phone messages from my roommate like "John called, he needs you to destroy the Power Rangers tomorrow."

The gig ended when I said no to getting high with John one night after work. I was young and he was NOT, and I never heard from The Power Rangers again.

As Octophantom I stole the Green Power Ranger's powers. It was at the height of the show's worldwide popularity and it was "THE" storyline. Kind of a big coup for me. To be feared and hated by children everywhere.
