My first exposure to the work of my newest interview subject, Lois Burwell, came when I saw Who Framed Roger Rabbit as a young child. Ms. Burwell worked on the movie’s makeup, and although it would be a long time before I knew her name, I was impressed with what I saw. A few years ago, I befriended Lois on Facebook. I knew I wanted to interview her someday, and that someday came on June 11th, 2021. We talked about the many films she’s worked on, as well as some big picture concepts. I hope you all enjoy reading this interview.
Highlander is a successful film franchise from the 80s and 90s. It is a franchise that spawned six sequels, Two television spin-offs, and an Animated series. Oh, I forgot to mention, there even an Anime movie about it. This franchise gave me the fantasy of immortality. I loved the movies and Tv shows because of the swordfight choreographies. Christopher Lambert was made into a star when he played Connor Macleod in the movies. He is an immortal Scottish man who owns an Antique shop in 1985. He is also the mentor of the Highlander: The Series‘s protagonist Duncan Macleod who is played by Adrian Paul.
