Michael vids; R.I.P Lorena Gale [Jul. 7th, 2009|04:08 pm]

Michael tweeted this last night:
Hey folks.Looks like I'll be throwing the first pitch out for the METS on Wed. night at citi field in NYC. Hope to see some of you there.

I hope there is vid of this!

Just learned from K-site that Lorena Gale, who played Lex's corrupt psychiatrist, Dr. Foster, has passed away at the early age of 51. Very sad to hear this. She was one of those character actors that popped up on Canadian shows & would just own her roles. She also seemed like a fun lady, who really enjoyed her time on Smallville. Here are two quotes from 2004:

Lorena: The other gig I really enjoyed was playing Dr. Foster on Smallville, playing Lex Luthor's evil psychiatrist. Who apparently was in Superman comics - Superman's psychiatrist! So I got killed but not on camera because I don't think you can kill Superman's psychiatrist!

On working with Michael: Well, you know some of the best shows that are on, have the best working environments. A lot of laughter.... a lot of laughter. Michael Rosenbaum is an incredibly fine, fine actor. And this boy is as serious as a heart attack! I tell you he works so hard at his craft that it's just an absolute pleasure to work with him. Just like with Mary (McDonnell of Battlestar Galactica) I mean Mary doesn't work as hard at it as he does - and I don't even think he needs to because he's there....but lots of laughter. And it was a real homey set, a real welcoming set. From the moment you get on there, everyone knows who you are and they take really good care of you...."


There are some video clips of Michael I haven't seen before, posted on Youtube by alaindl and Michael Rosenbaum Italia!



"Batman Begins" Love all the photographers hollering at him: "Michael! Stay there!"


Super sexy in Three stooges T!


Nice close-up!


Playing the game!


Thanks to alaindl and Michael Rosenbaum Italia!

Eee, beanie!! ♥

And 'someoneses' b-days are coming up too! I doubt I can give Michael what he wants ;) but if you have a special request, lemme know, babe!!

MWAH!


(edited for grammar coherence that, while non-obligatory, it's sure nice, yeah? :P
the someoneses was on purpose, though!)

I had seen that Lorena had passed. I never knew her name, but I definitely knew her work and on her post SV work I always said, "That's Lex's therapist." So sad.

She appeared, literally, in every genre show filmed in Vancouver. SV and BSG were slightly bigger roles for her but X-Files, Stargate, Sentinel, Dark Angel, Millenium...she did'em all! And I must revisit her ep of Supernatural because I didn't flag her the first time around.

Thanks for the adorable vids of Michael! That last one, he looks afraid to even move his fingers. lol He's just too cute!!

That's so sad to hear about Ms. Gale. She was just a bit part but a memorable one.

I'm going to have to try and catchs Sports Center Wednesday night or something to see if they show Michael's pitch. :D

Aha! Sports Center is a good idea - I hope there's a web-clip because we don't get Mets coverage in Canada!

I love the scene in "Shattered" where Clark keeps looking from frantic Lex to calm Dr. Foster; he wants to believe Lex but Dr. Foster is so persuasive.

She was one of those character actors that appears on all the genre shows & is so versatile, disappearing into the role each time. Dr. Foster was a great role for Lorena because she starts off sincere, then gradually turns sinister.

Aww, that's sad. I remember her from SV and BSG mostly, but I've seen her in loads of things.

Great Michael-vids - he's so cute in that last one and I love that everyone wants him in the first!

She was a real sci-fi veteran & played such a variety of roles.

He poses so accommodatingly! Love how intent he is on his game.

Great clips! Those were some gorgeous smiles and dimples! Thanks for sharing these, and thanks to alaindl and Michael Rosenbaum Italia!

So sad to hear Lorena has passed away. So young! She was one of those actors that just drew you in to the character and the scene. I loved what she had to say about Michael, and I loved the scenes between Lex and Dr. Foster.

I really hope a video of Mikey throwing the first pitch out for the METS surfaces, too!! And you know it would be a great pitch!

Yes, his dimples are so lovely!

Their scenes in "Perry", where she's trying to get Lex to trust her, were so intense. This tiny lady trying to settle Lex down!

I really hope a video of Mikey throwing the first pitch out for the METS surfaces, too!! And you know it would be a great pitch!
With an accompanying hip-wiggle!

Very cool! I couldn't hear why he had the bruise on his head in the first one, though. Hockey injury, maybe?

I hope we get Mets vid!

I thought maybe he was sunburned - does he say "it's peeling" at one point?

I hope we get Mets vid!
Yes! Baby shaking his fine ass on the pitcher's mound!

I heard about that, then I swear I promptly saw her in some rerun. So sad.

And on that cheery note: HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
