I was a stunt man for 35 years.
I worked with Cecil B DeMille quite a few times.
No I didn't audition, I didn't even know David Lynch till the week before I started the film.
I worked for Sam Peckinpah on quite a bit of action in his films, and he got excited once in a while.
David Lynch was very good, very patient with us, and the reaction in the United States seems pretty good.
I worked for John Ford, Howard Hawks, Henry Hathaway, Raoul Walsh - I worked for some real good directors.
I don't know if you saw the parting of the Red Sea with the chariots on the horses, I did stuff like that.
But I don't really care for directors flaring up and trying to humble some actor, which they would do to try and make an example out of them so everybody else would stay on the ball - and David wasn't anything like that.
