Tennessee Shakespeare Festival: Lane Davies chats with BRBTV

OK, can we be a little more excited? Not really! We watched him as Mason Capwell when our beloved soap "Santa Barbara" first hit the daytime airwaves in July 1984, and we continued watching him faithfully for five years, absolutely captivated by his almost-reluctant charisma and Machiavellian charm as the black sheep of the wealthy Capwell family. Quotes of Shakespeare weren't hard to come by in those colorful scenes with Mason, and it's no wonder the actor loves the work of the Bard in real life!

We won't go into all the stage and screen credits of Lane Davies as we continue our weeklong coverage of this year's Tennessee Shakespeare Festival, because frankly, we think we've done that already on this blog! But we will gladly laud the longtime actor, who directed this production of "The Comedy of Errors," and came on-stage to introduce it the night we were there. And we will say we were beside ourselves to sit down and chat with him for a special BRBTV interview, the first part of which we link below ...



In this clip, Davies touches on not only his time on "Santa Barbara" but also on the primetime '80s "Dallas," where he portrayed Craig Gurney, and the current web series "The Bay."
