Michael's personal information regarding his family is not something I'm allowed to post on the site, for obvious reasons.  No doubt they'd get pestered on his behalf about stuff that has nothing to do with his work.

Maya, one thing I was curious about - I've heard there's video of an interview with MM discussing MacBeth. I can't seem to locate it, and I'm sure I'm probably just overlooking it. Do you happen to have the link handy? Thank you. :)

I appreciate that Maya, but saying something like "divorced from german actress and has 9 year old son" isn't giving too much info away and would not expose his family to fan hassle!

I don't have any information about any previous marriage, and no information to share on any children, sorry.

At Timeless Destinations convention in Vancouver a few years ago, Michael did us the favor of granting an interview right before he was to fly out to his theater performance of Macbeth. Unfortunately, the interview was supposedly filmed, but the person filming was unfamiliar with the new Hi-Def camera, and the footage was lost.

All I can tell you is he answered some questions about the performance in regards to the 'curse' on Macbeth actors, in that he was not superstitious in spite of the fact that a couple of workmen on the set of the show were injured during the set-up and that there was a tremendous storm during the last part of one of his shows which caused alot of wind damage. Other than that, I have no surviving text or film to document the interview. Angel did the interview, even though it was extremelely shortened due to time constraints, but he was only able to answer a few questions regarding the play. Obviously we were all extremely disappointed in our loss of the footage. That's showbiz...

Maya, you make it sound like I'm asking for names, addresses and inside leg measurements!

Want to make it clear that I am not.


But never mind.

Maya gets pestered contantly about MM at the email from her MM site.  Some chick even sent a photo of herself for Maya to send to MM.  Maya has every right to not give out any information on MM's personal life.  Frankly, it's nobody's business but MM's, I just posted the bit that's been known for years.  His personal life doesn't need to be in his bio, other than his achievements as that is part of his professional career.

Hey guys, time for me to make something perfectly clear. Get ready for a little rant, so if  you choose not to read, please ignore the post.

Regarding personal information on Michael. I'm not at liberty to discuss anything personal on this board or on the website for a perfectly good reason, in spite of whatever 'demand' there is for private info on him.

1. I have an official site, and therefore am precluded from mentioning anything that I don't have permission for, like personal background info on any previous wives and children. Why would any of that make any difference to anyone if they're not trying to look them up somewhere? What difference does it make if his ex is Canadian, German, Chinese or whatever? And I certainly would NEVER pass any info around about children. Period.

2. I can't sell any items on the site either, like autographs, etc, without express permission.

One of the reasons there is this policy is that Michael is not  your typical kind of Hollywood actor. He's a very private person and doesn't share details of his family, for good reason. He's had stalkers, droolers and all kinds of nutjobs out there that try to hunt down his hotel rooms during conventions, follow him home from the studio, etc. Now if some of you are not happy with the level  of information I'm doling out when I get it, and think you are 'entitled' to more personal information, then you're on the wrong board. And I certainly won't jeopardize the status of the website by doing something that will upset Michael, and I sure won't stand for anyone copping a 'tude about it either, so whoever is unhappy can just get over it already.

This message board and the website have given you guys more information about the cast than any previous site or board in Lexx fandom, and there were days in the beginning of Lexx fandom that just asking about Michael's personal info would have gotten someone attacked by numerous fans with a proprietory interest in Michael who didn't even have any website involved.

I only post info regarding Michael's work because that is the only information that is RELEVANT. If someone is interested in him personally, well you're out of luck here, so if anyone thinks they can get better info someplace else, more power to you.

I hope I've made myself very clear. I enjoy giving you guys details of work and appearances when I have it, but I'm not going to give out anything other than details for his work, because nothing else is relevant to these sites, and I certainly don't want to start avoiding giving information because I think the board members are ungrateful for what they're getting. Trust me, you guys have all the goods that are available.

Now that the public flogging is over, let's get back to having a good day...:)

None wear the status of Divine Executioner with more grace and class than you, Lady Maya.   :147:  

I Worship Your Divine Shadow. 

(So does anyone know, is Devine the Canadian spelling, or can the Beans not spell worth a shit, or what?)  :cool:

Well the Beans were notorious for writing entire episodes on the backs of cocktail napkins at the local pub, so your guess is as good as mine, hehe..

One of the reasons I joined this forum, and enjoy it so much, is the general lack of 'tabloidy' type stuff. I appreciate that it's about LEXX, and the actors' work, the art, and not about who's dating who, etc. Don't know, don't wanna know.

I know he was mentally deranged, but a statement made by Live Kai in FluffDaddy was quite apt: Fascination with the artist has superseded identification with the art. I think our culture is permeated with this concept. So thank you Maya, Angel, and everyone else involved here, for giving me a place free from gossipy twaddle to express my appreciation and indulge my inner geek. You guys have done a wonderful job of keeping the spirit of Lexx alive.

I hope this comment will be taken the way it is meant. I'm not trying to pour salt in any wounds, or keep an argument going. It is meant very sincerely. I'm new to this and still learning the ins and outs of posting etiquette, so I hope my chiming in on this is not out of place. (Tone can be so difficult to convey in writing :)
