You know who Lance Henrikson is. You may not recognize the name, but if you have watched movies or TV at any point in the last forty years, you have seen him. You may have seen him in small roles in films like “Network,” “Dog Day Afternoon,” and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” You may have seen him play larger roles in several early James Cameron films: “Piranha 2,” for instance, or “Terminator,” in which he played Detective Hal Vukovich. Surely you remember him as the android Bishop in “Aliens,” a role he reprised in “Alien 3” and “Alien vs. Predator.” You may know him as Frank Black from “The X-Files” and its spinoff “Millennium.” Any kids reading this (are there any kids reading this?) know him from Disney’s “Tarzan,” in which he provided the voice for the gorilla Kerchak.

Lance Henrikson most recently stars in the film “It’s In the Blood,” which was written and directed by Louisvillians Sean Elliott and Scooter Downey and has its Kentucky premiere at the upcoming Derby City Film Festival. This psychological thriller tells the story of a father and son stranded in the wild and screens on Saturday, February 18 at 8:00 pm.

Henrikson himself will be attending the festival to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award. He will also take part in various panels and discussions (including a Q&A following the screening of “It’s in the Blood”) and be promoting his new biography, “Not Bad for a Human,” which will be available for purchase.

An autograph session has been scheduled for Saturday, February 18 from 3:00-4:00. This is only open to attendees of the film festival. As if the impressive number of independent films wasn’t enough of an incentive to attend, now you have the chance to meet a genuine legend of film. Don’t miss it!

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
