Let’s get to know our leading man Toby Ambrose a little better!
Describe yourself in one word: Frisky
What was your favorite book growing up and why? TV Guide. It was way before cable and those nifty onscreen programming guides. I know it’s not a book but I didn’t develop a love for literature until later in life.
Did you have a hero you emulated? Not really. As a kid my heroes were rock musicians and television/film actors. I wasn’t blessed with the gift of music and I was too shy as a kid to pursue performing. Making up for it now though!
If you had to drink only one drink and nothing else what else would it be? Water! So exciting, isn’t it?!?
If someone who knew nothing about Mantecoza asked you to describe it what would you tell them? Office Space meets Lord of the Rings as a sketch on SNL.
Without revealing any details, but knowing how the story goes, what encouraging word would you give to the Sebastian King of episode 1: Chenna can’t stay this grouchy forever. Right?!?
Do you think you are at all like the character of Sebastian? Hmmm, a software engineer who loves his mother and Lord of the Rings? Yes, we definitely have more than a few things in common.
Do you have a funny story from the set you can share? Technically it wasn’t from the from the set but when we met at Kate’s theatre for the first read through, the floor had just been painted with a high-gloss black finish. Tommy and I immediately kicked off our shoes and tested the friction coefficient at full speed. Didn’t take long before we were doing our own Blades of Glory impression.
You have 10 seconds left to say anything – what would it be? Thank you for supporting Mantecoza!!!
The last two weeks of filming I think have been the most fun so far!
A steampunk Market Place filled with the most amazing people one weekend followed by a road trip filming that was fun and full of laughter.
Here is some coverage by the local press of the Market Place filming. Geek News Network also has an amazing gallery of it on their site with 400+ pictures! And we offer our deepest thanks To Christen Bejar of Nerdvana and Hong Le of Geek News Network for joining us!
