Good questions folks, sorry my answers must be kinda short on much detail...

Edward and David were the two folks I spent the most time with, mostly because as a "featured player" I rode in the van to the set with them for the days I was there. Again, I was impressed that David would ride in the van rather than have a private car as some stars insist on.

I'm a bit reluctant to reveal some of our conversations, as they revolved around showbiz folk we had in common, and we gossiped some about them. Stuff that should not be bandied about lightly. I will say that they were BOTH very circumspect when discussing folks who had behaved badly on the show with them. Again, VERY classy.

Now on the set David was just plain fun. As I said, he made sure we took time not just with his shots, but mine as well. Between takes one time, I complimented him on his success in Europe with his music. Instead of gloating, he seemed truly grateful for the fan support, and understanding that his appeal didn't translate the same in the U. S.
He spoke of the difficulty to overcome labels here, but was accepting of the fact that he'd had a fairly good career to that point. (Remember Baywatch's tidal wave was yet to come.)

Edward was, for all his sophistication... a true geek about technology. At the time he had a Mac II and was fascinated as to my reports on my SE model. I gave him my contact info, telling him that I'd be glad to chat more with him about the 'puters. That happens a lot on sets, and most often, you don't hear anything... but to my delight, he called from California several times after shooting was complete, and we'd chatter on about modems and various programs. We even did remote hookups a couple of times to share info. Those were the days when you had to leave machines online for HOURS to transfer the simplest of items.
He always had good questions, and would also share with me what he heard from others he talked tech with.

As a "day player" who turned into a "weekly player" because of various scenes running long, and the production company having to keep my longer than they planned, I could have spent time watching other scenes, but that's considered "newbie" behavior and mostly you don't go to the set unless you know someone else in those scenes. I was gone before the wrap party. Indeed t-shirts and the like are handed out, but mostly to the crew and principle cast members toward the end of shoots. Again, I was gone from the set. The director, Alan Levi, was a very generous fellow and indeed invited me back, but I would have had to pay my way, an expense a "traveling actor" like myself had to watch!

Man would I like to have grabbed some props from SEVERAL movies I did! Wonder what I could have gotten for Kevin Costner's extra pair of glasses from JFK???

You folks should know that while David of course loved the "real" KITT... he was in love with that Chevy too! At one point as we waited for lights to be reset, he said: "ya know, we could take her down the road and see how she's running." Alan, wearing cans (showbiz talk for headphones) heard the comment over the microphone and beat a path to the door of the car: "please David! Don't even joke about that!" Standing outside I took a mock-serious attitude and said: "Back off there mister. This is an official investigation you're messing with!"
"Funny you two... real funny" David laughed and promised we wouldn't take any unauthorized road trips.
Fact is, those cars, for safety reasons have VERY little fuel in them and we couldn't have gotten very far!

Work takes me away for a bit... Sorry I didn't get the audio file done yet.

My favorite ride? Here's a picture of me (well ok my back!) on 'Beauty' my VTX1300. I travel the country with her and a ToyBox hooked up to my Sport Trac
