The Great Hanging documentary crew is proud to announce the addition of veteran actor Stephen Brodie. Stephen Brodie was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, and is the oldest of three children. Growing up, he was an avid reader, and from an early age, he began to write short stories and poetry. Stephen was always creatively and artistically-inclined, and although he dreamt of acting, singing, and performing his poetry live, he was far too shy to act on those desires. Instead, he avoided situations where he might somehow become the center of attention. At the age of 19, he founded Illya’s Honey, the quarterly literary journal that he both edited and published for nearly 4 years.
He eventually left the magazine behind to begin a career in the corporate world. However, he was never happy there and was left without a creative outlet. He began acting later than most, partly as a means of therapy to address his personal struggles with fear. It worked. Soon after, he quit his corporate job to concentrate on his passion of acting, and he has stayed busy ever since appearing in such films as The Long Ranger, Technically Crazy and the upcoming film The Last Possession. He also returned to his writing roots, focusing on writing screenplays with strong, interesting roles that appeal to him and allow him to stretch as an actor.
For his role in The Great Hanging Stephen will be playing James L. Clark, son of the main character Nathaniel M. Clark. James was conscripted into the Confederate Army all the while his father Nathaniel stood trial of being a Union sympathizer and spy. Upon learning of his father’s murder James Clark left the Confederate Army and joined the Union Army.
We look forward to seeing Stephen bring his talents to the set and portray James L. Clark with great passion.← BackNext →
