Exclusive Interview: Star Trek III: The Search for Spock with Stephen Manley (Part 1)

Exclusive Interview: Star Trek III: The Search for Spock with Stephen Manley (Part 1)

I was very fortunate to have Stephen Manley reach out to me on I have been with since last year. This is a preview to the article. 

I am very fortunate today to have a special guest star via/Telephone Interview with Stephen Manley. He is known for his roles in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock andLittle House on the Prairie. I am only naming a couple of his starring roles throughout his extensive career in the 40+ years of his acting experience. His newest debut, Ghosthunters, by The Asylum, was released on July 5, 2016, and is available for purchase on

Interviewer: Kimberly
What inspired you to become an actor?
Stephen- "This is like a novel full in and of itself. I am adopted. I'm an only child. The woman who adopted me, my step mom, her father was from Naples, Italy. He and his three brothers lived in New York in the early nineteen hundreds. The older brothers took off, and after awhile one of them joined the Navy. My grandfather, Stephen Soldi, worked in a shoe factory for a while and didn't like it. When he was old enough, he joined as a bill-boy in World War I. They sent him over to France and when he got there, the war ended. So, they put him back on a ship and sent him back to New York, and now he's an American citizen. He then joined the circus. He didn't want to go back to the shoe factory. He traveled by train with the circus taking care of the Lions at night time and working as a clown, you know, during the shows.
In 1917, he ended up in Los Angeles and B.W. Griffith was gearing up to make that big silent film Intolerance, the one with those huge Babylonian sets, and there's a Roman sequence to it. He got a job. He was hired as one of the Roman soldiers. And, Griffin wanted Italian speaking people to play the Italians and the Romans. I still have Grandpa Soldi's costume test picture. It's a hand-printed photograph of him in a Roman uniform on that set. He said, 'Boy I love this!'

He stayed in the movie business from 1917 all the way until 1966. You can catch him all over the place. I mean, he was in Gene Kelly's, 'Singing in the Rain'. At the end of the routine, my grandfather bumps into him and Gene Kelly hands him the umbrella, that is my grandfather; When the Marx Brothers are crowding into the state room in 'Night at the Opera', he is in the picture all squashed up inside there with them. I've got pictures of him with Charlie Chaplin and Boris Karloff. He loved the movie business. He loved being an actor. He specialized in bit parts and small things. Eventually, he was also a stuntman. He was Peter Lorre's personal stuntman, and he was Edward G. Robinson's personal stuntman.
Because he was from Naples, Italy, he wasn't the tallest fellow in the world, he was like, you know, Al Pacino and Edward G., but he loved it. He loved the industry. He retired in 1966. His last gig was a drama on Disney film called Bullwhip Griffin. In the 50s', he had tried to get Stella, his daughter, to take her contract with 20th Century Fox seriously, but the only thing that Stella took seriously was flirting with guys at the beach. So, they retired her from her contract, which drove my grandfather insane.

So when I was adopted, he looked at me and he put his insights on me. You know, I love my parents, but Grandpa Soldi was everything to me. When his wife passed away, since he lived with us, I spent all my time with him. It was not uncommon for me to just get up in the morning as a little boy and walk into grandpa's room and find him going through his stills of all those pictures that he would then explain what every single one of them were, 'Here I am as a German soldier. Oh, we're getting ready to run over ...'" he trails off. "You know, 'Here I am as a cowboy, hey, gettin' in a gunfight...Here I am as an Oregon grinder, and I'm, you know, taking tips. You know, here I am with the dead-end kid.' He was also the original live version of J. Wellington Wimpy of Popeye and Wimpy, and they did short films and live appearances. So, I have pictures of him eating White Castle hamburgers and holding Spanky McFarland in his arms. So, I learned all that stuff.

And then, he taught me to read, but he taught me to read by using film strips. And so, I would learn how to read dialogue and memorize the lines. I learned how to read stage direction, all that kind of stuff. He put 15- millimeter films on his projector, and he would show me the things he was in, or something would come on television and he would say, 'Here I come,' and there he was. He was one of the students in Frankenstein at the beginning of the movie. He tried desperately to get my mom to be little Maria, the little girl that gets thrown by Boris Karloff into the water to see if she floats like a flower. The director James Whale wanted her, but Stella was so terrified of Boris Karloff that they couldn't get her near the set. So, it went to the other young lady.

So, when I was five years old, he stuck me in his 1949 Packard, which was in immaculate shape. He kept everything beautifully. We drove down to the Screen Actor's Guild, and he spoke in Italian to the head of guild at the time, and I walked out with a side-cart. And, that's how I got started. A few months later, I was on a talent show called Juvenile Jury, and an agent named Dorothy Peyote saw me and she took me on. She thought I had enough personality that she could push me, so then, I could get work. And, sure enough, I started to book jobs. I went on auditions. I went out on interviews, and the unique thing was, I recognized all of the studio lots and all of the buildings because they were in the still pictures that my grandfather would show me when he would do show and tell all the time. And, I felt such a heavy responsibility to make my grandpa proud and to utilize the work ethic that he instilled in me. Pin Stephen Manley and Jean Rasey

Yahoo Mail from PETA

Yahoo Mail from PETA

Yesterday, I went through my mail "you got mail", from my yahoo address.  It was from "PETA".
Wishing me a Happy Birthday, along with Thanking me from my on-going support to keep fighting for these precious innocence, that were gifted to us on our planet!  Thank you PETA!!

I will continue to be the activist in which I am...when it comes to the suffering of any animal!  My "Facebook page" is evident of what I continue to fight for.  The Causes to stand against animal experimenting, the cruel torture of monkey's, rabbits, and dogs forced to smoke cigarets and inhale other poisons...yes, they do this! That's not even all...with the make-up you even wear! I'm not able to cover how much torture to babies, that is happening every day!

To Sea World and their cramped tanks of slavery to even Zoo's, that are filthy and starving. The Circuses, that whip Elephants to force them to perform. Their babies being tied down with chains and ripped from their mothers.

People wonder why Animals attack their trainers!?   It's common sense entertainment world! They can't tell you to knock it off and quit hurting them. The only place they belong is in their own habitat!  Elephants trampling humans and Whales killing their trainers and Tigers mauling their Masters...I'm sure there is much more!

This above picture is from a former employee of the Nation's largest Traveling Circus!

Keep signing your petitions! Boycott!  Don't stay silent...they need our voices! Thank you!

The Golden Life: How to Become the Best you Can Be

The Golden Life: How to Become the Best you Can Be

I wanted to start off by thanking everyone from the bottom of my heart! Visiting me here or my other Blog @

Everyone has a voice and the right to be heard. You can become and manifest your dreams and desires! What has helped me through the pain in instead of being negative and throwing that out in the universe...where it hits you like a boomerang and you fall each time.  Just start and becoming positive.  I know it's difficult the obstacles that we face.  It's not a lost cause either...because I'm living proof that I'm happy and positive!
The worst word to use is I can't!  Not only you won't be able to do it...your defeating your own purpose in life. Your putting up invisible barriers around yourself. Yes, they do exist!  The better thing to do is say you can...even positive affirmations can help too.  All you have to do is try and say you can! When you continue to do will start noticing positive changes. You will be transformed and your family and friends will notice too. They will want the same reactions in their world! Your creating positive peace...and a loving flow out wards.  And you will attract the same in response.  Stay away from negativity in every form!  Thanks for viewing!  Good luck will come into
your life!

The Invisible Killer

The Invisible Killer!  If your like me and have many chronic debilitating illnesses.   I don't want to refer the illnesses as diseases. That would mean to me, that I have given up on finding a cure! (Killer), isn't what it always seems to be.  If it takes you away from having fun and being able to care for yourself! That's a killer that sucks the life out of you!

That's what the illnesses do to me and countless others, whom deal with this every millisecond to every day.  Fibromyalgia, arthritis, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, PTS, cancer, and depression.  Some I wanted to add, but just a few.  I know there's plenty more than what I listed.

I had not even a clue that foods can play a important key element in these illnesses. "What you put into your system the more you get out of it." Very true statement!

I have come across on Facebook a group page that I'm very grateful's called "Foods for Fibromyalgia". If your like me and need supportive people and learn new ways of eating. To end the flares that our bodies produce along with no medication option...this group is for you!

Come by and check it out! We could always need someone to lean on!

Titanic Ghost Letter

Titanic Ghost Letter

I wanted to share this letter to everyone.  I am a Fan of Titanic and as are many other people in the world.  The movie and song were created to give an intimate story, behind the scenes to the tragic loss of the people and this "unsinkable ship".   The fiction replica of this powerful ship in the movie was breathtakingly beautiful.  It gave us a closer look into the sorrow and hardships...that these people may of encountered. The vessel being taken down from smashing into a Iceberg! And to the passing of these incredible people...from steerage to first class passengers.  That night they became equals.  I would like to acknowledge the survivors, deceased, and their families!  God Bless you!  I am so Sorry for your Loss!  Thank you for sharing your story with us!  My deepest sympathies are with you!

My Birthday Planning Idea Invitation

My Birthday Planning Idea Invitation:

My birthday is coming up on October 14th...and normally it wasn't anything special, like any other day.  It's wonderful if you have family and friends that surprise you with parties and gifts. Some people don't like Surprises...but it's the thought that counts behind the preparations and the tons of balloons!  When we were kids, that was the BEST!  The Fun doesn't have to End when your a child.  And there is absolutely nothing wrong with planning your own bash either!! 

Sometimes not everybody has even that luxury.  It can hurt others feelings too...if people forget, not on purpose but if no one says happy birthday.  Or how about never knowing your own birth date? ...I couldn't imagine how that feels!

Well I just decided for this blog entry is to create something for everyone. We might of never even met before...not yet, but I feel birthdays are extremely important, like many others. First things do have to come first! This is Dedicated to everyone on the Internet Land.  Happy Soon to be Birthday or Happy Belated or Happy Birthday because today is your birthday!!
I really hope you feel a little Special by reading this! Because you are even More Special than you realize! If you are interested in reading... I would like to share my birthday bash here on my blog.  Stay tuned for my upcoming Birthday I celebrate...your ALL invited to will be right here!  I wish everyone could be there face to face!!!  Wouldn't that be a Party!? 
Hugs & Love...Stay Cool!  ArtzyAngel
