Film and Television Appearances


The Red Carpet Treatment
by Scott Supak
    I was working for Ray Kildisas, Property Master at The Mark Taper Forum.  We were loading in Tongue of a Bird, which starred Marian Seldes.  Ray had me lay some red carpet and a cushioned kitchen chair off stage right.  He said, "This is for Marian Seldes.  Our job is to make sure she is well taken care of."  During the six week run of the play I did just that, even making her laugh at one point during every show by bowing as I passed by.
    I've met a lot of people over my career as a stage hand, but never have I met a more gracious soul.  Patient, kind, quiet, and unassuming, Marian Seldes is the kind of theatre person I wish I met more often!
