wonderful actors
18 October 2006 | by irenevgrandmaSee all my reviews

When I first started watching this series, it was because I was a huge Sam Elliot fan, couldn't get enough of watching this wonderful actor. Then as I watched it I started to notice another actor in it, Edward Albert, he was handsome, kind and just was so talented, I could not believe a man with all of this talent, was so unnoticed. So I started to read up on this great actor and found out that he was also a good person, wonderful family man, a good son, and in general just a very good human being. Sadly we lost this wonderful man in Sept of this year, he will be sadly missed and we are all better for being able to watch his talent, and read what wonderful things he was able to do in his life time, cut so short. Thank you Mr Albert.
