Canadian actor Charles Ross has a pretty sweet job as a professional Geek.
As writer and performer of his trilogy of trilogies: One Man Star Wars and One Man Lord of the Rings, and One Man Dark Knight; A Batman Parody, Charlie has toured the globe since 2002, delighting audiences with his unique and frenetic solo shows.
Born in northern British Columbia, Canada, Charlie spent his early years with his head in the clouds, longing for galaxies far, far away.
It was the discovery of a passion for acting (and a move to more southerly climes) that brought this geek-at-heart back to earth.
At university, Ross formed a friendship and collaborating partnership with actor/writer/director, TJ Dawe. TJ has directed five of Ross’s solo shows- the first being the wildly successful One Man Star Wars.
After sold-out tours of North America’s Fringe theatre festivals, One Man Star Wars and One Man LOTR have taken on a life of their own.
Licensed by George Lucas and Saul Zaentz : carrying the official banner of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings- it’s fair to say that Charlie now dwells in geek heaven.
With thousands of performances, in hundreds of cities, across four continents: from off-Broadway NYC to the Sydney Opera House, the West End of London to the sands of Dubai, or from Hong Kong to India- chances are these shows have been there.
The worldwide love affair with these Trilogies is phenomenal- and it’s been a dream come true, for Charlie Ross, to celebrate that love with the generations of fans around the world.
