Happy Birthday, Jason Flemyng!

There's a birthday in the Primeval tv series family today.

Happy Birthday to Jason Flemyng today!

Jason is the talented actor who played Danny Quinn in Series 3 of the Primeval tv series, and who reprised the role in Series 4 a couple of times. Jason, who turns 53 years of age today, has a pretty impressive CV in movies and tv, appearing in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), Snatch (2000), Rob Roy (1995), From Hell (2001), and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003). He's done some prominent work in both theatre and television in the UK (check out the link above). He also speaks fluent French. A lot of tv and science fiction fans remember him for his work on Primeval UK, though he's done a lot of other work, too. One of his more memorable turns of recent years was as the villainous Vadim in The Musketeers (2014).

I can't say that Danny Quinn was one of my favourite characters in Primeval, but I certainly warmed to him by the end of Series 3, and was sorry to see him depart. His reappearance in Series 4 came as quite a surprise, a pleasant one.

So here's wishing Jason Flemyng a terrific birthday today!

Getting Ready for Friday Night Gaming

Gaming this evening with the Friday gaming group is on.

While I'm currently staying at the Marriott Courtyard East hotel, the Friday night players were adamant that we were going to play a game session tonight here at the hotel. However, rather than play the game in the hotel room, after seeing the photo that I posted of the hotel room yesterday, they've decided that they would rather play down in the lobby in the comfortable lounge area. Coronavirus needs, of course. Here's a photo of that space.

I meant to take a photo of the space, but this is the image off the Courtyard's website. There are a few more round tables and chairs in the area where the blue couch is positioned, and we'll be playing there as the five players and I will need the space to properly physical distance while we game. So gaming is on for the night.

I'll be continuing on with the Friday night Zorro: The Roleplaying Game campaign this evening, and am looking forward to it.

In the meantime, I need to finish supper here in the hotel restaurant and get back up to the hotel room and take some time to relax with my feet up. And do a bit more of quick game prep for tonight's game session.

Have a good evening, folks. :)
