Tracie was in the queue (at) a convention in England to talk to Kevin. She chatted with (an) actress close to Kevin, Tia Carrere (she did “Kull” with him). Tracie said that the girl was very friendly, and that they exchanged ideas.
At one point Tracie (heard), very softly (Kevin’s) name, but did not pay attention because the sound was big around. She thought she heard her husband asking her to look after their little boy or something… Then again (she heard him) a little more loudly and insistently.
Tracie stopped, red and (embarassed) while Kevin smiled, amused.
“Tell her (the handler) you are a fan,” Kevin said to break the ice.
Tracie relaxed and smiled, (and) said her daughter, Jesse, also liked Kevin.

Really Real Film’s Allan Harmon’s career began 34 years ago as a stage producer, director, and actor. Harmon, originally from upstate New York, toured theatres throughout the United States and Canada, but decided instead to pursue a career in film, television and commercials. He worked as an Assistant Director, Unit Manager and Producer for companies like CBS, Lifetime, CBC, USA Network, Columbia, Tristar, Lions Gate, NBC, MGM, Universal, Fox, ABC, Disney, Paramount, Polygram and Warner Brothers.
Fifteen years ago, Harmon’s directorial credentials led him to major projects. He directed productions for Warner Brothers (“Police Academy”); Tribune/Fireworks/Alliance (“Nightman,” “Andromeda”); TV Ontario (“A Question of Justice”); and the CBC (“Street Legal, Material World”).
In 1998 he and his wife, Cynde, established the Vancouver, British Columbia-based entertainment company, Really Real Films. Their diverse business provided services for film and television throughout Canada and the U.S., and produced award-winning commercials for an elite international clientele: Chanel No 5, directed by Ridley Scott (“Gladiator,” “BladeRunner”); L’Oreal featuring Mila Javovich (“The Messenger,” “Resident Evil,” “Zoolander”); and Humex (Winner Lion D’Or at CANNES).
Harmon directed the feature film, “Afghan Knights,” starring Michael Madsen (“Reservoir Dogs”), Gary Stretch (“Alexander” and “9/11”), Steve Bacic (“Andromeda”), and Chris Kramer (“The Collector”). He added two Lifetime movies to his resume, “Passion’s Web” and “Second Sight,” for which he was nominated Best Direction for a feature length film at the 2008 Leo Awards. He then completed “Trust,” an MOW for TF1 network and Vancouver’s Insight Films, and co-produced and directed Really Real Films’ children’s pilot, “The Magic Backpack,” on “The Greenhouse Effect.”
He is currently anticipating the December 25, 2009 premier of “Wolf Canyon,” the pilot for a half-hour comedy series starring Kevin Sorbo that he co-produced and directed for APTN.

Here is Charline’s report from the October, 2009 Belgium FACTS Convention:
We were in line with Laurence (my daughter) and met Evelyne and her husband, both charming… After that we met together with Viviane, and finally with Teresa and her daughter and with Sandra and Silvia, also charming, but the problem with different languages made it a bit difficult.
Until Kevin´s arrival time to his table we kept taking a look at the hotel shops. Then Kevin arrived; I felt like my heart would explode. I saw this handsome man with striking blue eyes (just so great to look at them) and his hands (and yes, I fantasized about his hands)…
We went to the line in front of his table, and I felt I would not be able to speak. I responded (to) him by using my head and some gestures. (I had the impression that I was going to faint.) I could only tell him, “For you,” giving him my little gift.
Then came the moment with the picture. I did not want to be in a wheelchair, so I got up suddenly as if I had not difficulty to do so, and felt great happiness just to be beside him.
At 1:45 p.m., it was time for the photo-op. Tiredness came over me and I could not get up; we had to improvise, so I asked Kevin to sit down on my knees, which he did at once… He is a brilliant man. He agreed to stay with me on the chair the needed time to take a picture with him.
5:00 p.m… time for the Q&A session: HE IS BRILLIANT!
Tired and (with) plenty of good memories, our fan group met at the hotel…
Now, I live with the hope of seeing Kevin again very soon and more, talk to him a little more.
Please see Teresa’s vid of Charline and Kevin here:
Producer/Director Dallas Jenkins co-founded Jenkins Entertainment with his father, Jerry B. Jenkins, in February, 2000. The fledgling company completed its first independent film, “Hometown Legend,” with the 25-year-old Dallas at the helm as producer.
The younger Jenkins shortly began directing shorts. His “Cliché” was well-acclaimed by FilmThreat.com, and “Midnight Clear,” starring Stephen Baldwin, won a Crystal Heart Award from the Heartland Film Festival and was the San Diego Film Festival’s opening night selection. In 2006 he co-executive produced “Though None Go with Me,” a movie based on his father’s book, that aired on the Hallmark Channel.
Dallas’s full-length feature directing debut came with “Midnight Clear,” a film based on his eponymous short. Its accolades included the Cinequest Film Festival’s award for “Best First Feature” and the Kansas International Film Festival’s “Audience Choice” award. It is currently available on DVD from Lionsgate.
Dallas distinguished himself as a noteworthy director with his second feature, “What If…,” starring Kevin Sorbo, Kristy Swanson, John Ratzenberger, and Debby Ryan to be released next year. He signed to direct the feature film, “Riven,” in 2010.
Dallas kindly answered a few questions for us regarding Kevin and “What If…,” including how we can help spread the word about the film. More… http://sorbowriter.wordpress.com/interview-with-dallas-jenkins/
