Career Highs, Lows, And Life Changing Decisions with Special Guest Vernon Wells

Super Chat with Cat and Nakia

Vernon Wells acclaimed Australian born actor has done over 200 film and television projects. His first cinema appearance was a minor role in Felicity (1978), a low budget, erotic fantasy film. However, Wells was then fortunate to be cast as the homicidal biker "Wez", in the big budget The Road Warrior (1981) filmed around Silverton near Broken Hill in outback New South Wales, Australia. It's the role for which he is probably best known to international audiences, as Wells portrays a psychotic, post apocalyptic gang leader who relentlessly pursues hero Mel Gibson, before meeting a spectacular death at the film's finale. Hollywood beckoned for Wells, and he spoofed his mad biker role in the popular teen comedy Weird Science (1985), before taking on another villainous role as the treacherous ex-soldier "Bennett", who foolishly double crosses Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando (1985). Once more, Wells meets a dramatic end, as he is impaled against a boiler at the film's conclusion, as big Arnold remarks "Let off some steam, Bennett". Vernon takes Nakia and Cat down his lengthy journey of highs and lows in the entertainment industry.--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
