Lifetime Achievement Award for Lance from BIFFF

Lance Henriksen, Frank Black himself, is receiving a lifetime achievement award in Belgium at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. Nice to see they mention Millennium with such respect in their schedule (see below).

From the BIFFF website:
Lance Henriksen
Saturday 10 April: 22h00 - ceremony / 23h45 - Q&A

After a childhood around the world, young Lance studied at the Actor’s Studio and began his career in Broadway in the 70’s. At this moment, he got the opportunity to play in some films of Sidney Lumet (Dog Day Afternoon and Network). Truly a cult face in the science-fiction genre (Aliens, Alien³, Absolom 2022, The Terminator), he appears in various genres like western (The Quick and the Dead, Appaloosa), thriller (Color of Night) or even a cartoon (Tarzan). But, what’s most important, he gained success (and 3 Golden Globes) at the end of the 90’s through his famous role in Chris Carter’s cult series: Millenium. It is the very first time we have the honor to welcome Lance Henriksen, and believe us, we are proud of it!

We wish Lance all the best (as I recall he flew out yesterday or today). And hope he has a great weekend. For more on Lance from BIFFF's website, click here! If you're booked to go to BIFFF - let us know how it went when you get back!

Sadly I read about his appearence in Belgium too late. It's only 3,5 hours from here (Germany)- but I already have tickets for another event tomorrow.

Sorry to hear that Dominik - I hope your other event proves to be fun anyway! We'll be doing a follow up to let you know how it went. :)

Hey, thanks. I hope it will be fun- but it would be certainly even greater to see Lance again. :) I met him at a German horror con last year and shortly after that my Lance-Website went online. He really is inspiring. :)

PS: nice radio-podcast, too!

PPS: perhaps I should try to write a short article about his 2009 con-visit in Germany for all the Lance-Fans out there. "Try" 'cause I'm a bit nervous about my English.
