WHS presents: actor Yan Birch and director Michael G. Kehoe to talk about the new short film 99 Problems.
Tonight we welcome actor Yan Birch and director Michael G. Kehoe to talk about the new short film 99 Problems. 99 PROBLEMS: A waitress is given the opportunity to change the immediate future. Her life depends on it. Yan Birch: With talent, experience, unending support from his family, and maybe a little genetic determination to perform, Yan swiftly obtained acting parts in music videos and commercials, working with people like Billy Idol, David Fincher, Mark Rezyka and Mickey Rourke before landing his first American feature roles in Slumber Party Massacre III (1990), and The Runestone (1991). From these, he was flown to Italy where he landed a starring role in the feature film "Scrondo" and several other Italian television shows. In 1991, Yan got a major part in Wes Craven's cult horror film The People Under the Stairs (1991), as "The Stairmaster." While his love for the fun of working on Horror and Science Fiction films took him on a road through the underground, his acting ability landed him the steadier roles in two popular network daytime soaps Santa Barbara (1984) and The Young and the Restless (1973). Yan capitalized on his Swedish good looks, and his menacing appearance, playing both a sensitive health club owner and a mobster, while working to better his craft in this different media. Michael G.
