    Yes, but it's not a great movie by any means :)
    It was this one
    Back when I was 16! I'm in one of the early scene in the main house when they are prepping for a feast. I'm a milk maid and get my hands checked for dirt.
    On an extra trivia note, it's the reason I have bad knees, as I fell down a storm drain in the dark after filming.

    Ok, here goes.
    I am Chris Lord, also known as Kit, Kester, Kes and a few rude ones!
    I am 37, almost 38 years old. Spent 11 years in the Civil Service (11 years in the Civil Service teaches a man to hate!) and I am now a rail consultant. Did a bit of acting, wasn't what I wanted to do. Played in a few bands, only one of which was any good, but realised that I really didn't enjoy the lifestyle. I am married, for 12 years, no children. 1 cat.
    Started painting in '83 for my D&D group. I was the only one who seemed interested in the painting side, so I did all of the painting. Some things never change as I am painting three 40k armies at the moment, only one of which is for me. I used to be very into Michael Moorcock and own just about everything he has written, but haven't read them for years. Musically I am a folk and blues man. Favourites include Sonny Boy Williamson II, Robert Johnson and on the folk side, Anne Briggs and Kate Rusby.

    Well I'm a 21 year old Boy Genius non religious Rastafarian who was brought up by two very liberal and anarchistic dope smoking parents...that should give a good overview.

    I also like camping.

    And got my first tattoo today.

    Peace and love...

    I'm Daniel Brewer and I'm 30 years old.
    When I'm not trying to take over the world, I make video games to support my miniature purchasing habit. I listen to a lot of different music, a little older stuff (Tori Amos, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, Pink Floyd etc) and no rap / hip hop.
    What I'm looking for in an ideal miniature is a striking pose, good details smooth skin tones, and a good balance between cloth and metal. Big swords and skimpy outfits are a plus, but not mandatory ;)

    I'm Liz Campbell, formerly and soon to be Liz Wheelock.

    I was born in Appleton Wisconsin on Christmas day 1959. Religously I'm a mess. My mom was catholic, my dad was protestant and they both became messianic jews when I was 8. Tell me THAT didn't screw me up a bit!

    I moved from Wisconsin to California in 1969, just in time for the Watts riots and all that. I'm a hippie by choice. Had to choose something. Why not peace and love? I DO shower regularly though.

    Got married in 1983 after living with my soon to be ex for 3 years. Had 1 son (Alex or "The Boy") in 1989. Moved to the desert in 1992. Kicked my hubby out last year in July and will be divorced by the end of this year if I can. I'm also dating Roger (who says my hair is damn difficult to paint BTW) and will be seeing him in 3 weeks in london.

    I started painting in 1979. Took a really long break to have my son and raise him. Got back into the hobbie I think in late 2007. Boy did things change in those years!

    Besides minis I have done cross stitch and sewing (having breifly flirted with the idea of going into costum design and taking 1.5 years of courses for it). I play(ed) guitar (left handed) and clarinet when younger and spent most of my high school singing. Voice is shot now though.

    I'm still finding out what kinds of music I like. Same with movies, books and other things like that. It's fun to re-discover yourself.

    I think that's about it except I'm a good cook but a terrible house keeper.
    Keeper quote: "I've got 10 inches, here!!"

    Of course painting your hair is difficult. tell him to use hair dye like the rest of us.

    I'm Jason, married to Boris for 11 years now.

    I've been in the military, served in the first Gulf War. I've been a gamer for over 20 years, have worked as a freelance writer for some of the long defunct D20 Companies, along with some British RPG ones that have died a miserable death.

    I generally paint GW and historical. I have an interest in Historical Martial Arts (Sword Fencing), mainly 1.33 and some rapier. Yes I have a small modest collection of swords, including a WW2 Japanese NCO sword, that needs some restoration, have done the blade, just need to repair everything else.

    I study Archaeology, specialising in Climate Change and Pandemic, looking at the connection between the two. Yes, every other climatic change has brought with it the BLACK DEATH.

    Apart from that I'm also a qualified teacher.
