* Starred films have been chosen in the last three months.
Scheduled Internet times often vary on the day, particularly
Walker, 51, studied social work in his
youth. He said about the script, "It s
a wonderful insight into our world from
this very young man. It s unique. The
fact that he comes from the legacy of
his father, who was the first black film-
maker to make a film in Britain.... It s
a big part of my life---it s my life that
he [Horace] put on film: first generation
black Brit---and to flip forward and his
son was writing a movie and I m now
in it...." Walker s piercing black eyes
gleamed as he spoke.
Indra Ové s character Linda is a
returning national who comes home
to Trinidad to heal after a personal
tragedy in Britain. "She has been amaz-
ing," Walker said in praise of Indra.
"She has revealed her heart in this film."
T&T actor Michael Cherrie plays the
man who throws an agitated Dubois
out of a café.
"Michael was fantastic," Walker
noted. "This nice, meek man---but
when he had to throw me, he flipped.
I was like, Wow! Michael, I didn t
know you had that inside you! Where
that ugliness come from? "
Later at another location, the shoe
was on the other foot as Dubois inter-
venes when the man attacks Linda.
Walker choreographed the fight
sequences in the short film, and on
Tuesday night he was in a driveway on
Fitt Street, Woodbrook, directing Cher-
rie and Indra as they struggled next to
heaps of ersatz rubbish.
Walker trained as a dancer early in
his career and describes himself as "a
physical person". It s a side of him that
he doesn t often get to use in his TV
roles, he said, and it s one reason he
appreciated the role of Chief Bodden
in Chicago Fire.
He liked the Chicago Fire script from
the start because of the high calibre of
its writing; he was also looking for a
series that was "something more con-
crete, more old fashioned drama, some-
thing that everybody could relate to",
rather than the "high-concept" series
that are popular on US TV at present.
"I read it and there was camaraderie
and relationships and people you re
interested in. I guess most of all action.
When I get to play lawyers and stuff
my physicality tends to get shut down."
In Chicago Fire, Chief Bodden Walker
plays a fairly rare creature in US TV:
a physically strong, intelligent black
man in a position of power. Walker is
philosophical about the shortage of
such roles. "That s down to the writing,
the stereotypes and the culture, and
what viewers say they want to see.
"As black folks in this business, we re
always looking to show what three-
dimensional, diverse people we are, but
we re dealing with a business that deals
in stereotypes. It s down to the actor
to take a role that s not necessarily
fleshed out as a three-dimensional
character and flesh it out. It s what you
bring to the table... what they [writers]
want to say and how you want to do
it, and that conversation continues."
Walker smiled broadly when he talked
about his visit to a T&T fire station
during this visit. "I got welcomed with
open arms and it was fantastic for me.
It made me realise what a brotherhood
right across the world there is between
these men and women who run into
danger to save people. I felt very proud
and honoured to be associated with it."
Chicago Fire returns to NBC in Sep-
tember for its second season. Walker
resumes work on the ensemble drama
Dubois is partly funded by the T&T
Film Co, and Kaz Ové expects to com-
plete it by the end of this year.

"We need help to get to South Africa,"
sing the girls of the Bishop Anstey High
School choir in a YouTube video posted
online as part of the choir s current
fund-raising drive. In recent years the
choir has taken part in choral festivals
in Wales and Europe. This year, the
choir plans to participate in the Ihlombe
South African Choral Festival, from July
Though the girls families were
responsible for their own funding for
the trip, the choir has fallen short.
"Your kind donations will help us
with the airfare from Trinidad to South
Africa, accommodation, meals and uni-
forms for the choir, and with the trans-
portation of the pans," said the note
on the Piggybackr fund-raising page.
Donors have until July 9 to contribute
via the page; donations to the Bishop
Anstey High School Music Fund may
also be made at any
Unit Trust branch
