Big & Tall Actor - 7ft, Muscular, Stunt Experience, Recognised Actor - Conan Stevens

Official website of 7ft Tall Australian Actor Conan Stevens. I am an actor, and have been a scriptwriter, computer geek, non-competitive bodybuilder and ex-professional wrestling champion.

Since I was 16 years old I wanted to become an Action Movie Star. I joined the Army, I did Karate, some Freestyle Fighting, medieval fighting , and Pro-Wrestling to learn to fight both real and staged combat. I put on 78kg (171lbs) of muscle , danced with a national Ballet and wrote and  co-starred in my own successful cinema release action/comedy movie. Besides a 7 year diversion due to a debilitating nerve injury and a few judicial / military coup delays, everything I have done has had this end goal in mind though I didn't know how to get there.

This website is a weekly chronicle of the struggles and experiences I have had from being a small time actor in Australia, my move into the more active Asian movie scene and my hopes to make a final breakthrough into the 'A' grade US International market - now achieved (Game of Thrones)(Spartacus)(The Hobbit) - and then onto starring in my own movies - and of course finally (after over 20 years) getting paid enough to cover 20+ years of lost wages and expenses trying to make this career work.

On top of all that I personally made this website and I write all the content to market myself Internationally, to grow a grass roots fan base, previously to provide an income to help me survive between jobs and to help others follow their dreams by detailing how I went about it - completely ignoring the standard advice doled out in heaps by others who live lives unsatisfactory to themselves.

The website is now huge with more than 1000 pages of useful information on acting , fitness, muscle gain and living successfully - stay and have a look around if you enjoy the site BOOKMARK me and come back later.

Remember if an Aussie beach bum can make sky high childhood day dreams come true then you can too .

You'll be seeing a lot more of me soon

It Never Rains It Pours

Acting Movies TV Film
Tuesday, 16 September 2014

Since I cannot write about what I am doing so much these days I have not been writing so much, but here is a run down on what's been happening and what I have been too busy to do and unfortunately missed:

I was in the US, appeared in a TV pilot and visited LA and the very famous Hollywood, learnt my way around and caught up with some long term pen pals there as well as a very respectable agent from a very respectable agency, a manager and a bunch of other industry people, did a couple of auditions. Got some good advice and it was a good trip, I know my way around LA now and am prepared to go stay for a while soon. I think I am quite prepared enough at this stage and just need to build a reputation in LA as a step forward next.

Since then I had a quick beach holiday in the tropics completely forgetting it was monsoon season, so it more hot sticky indoors holiday as I only saw the beach from a rainy, wet distance.

Jimmie Wing Shoots New Conan Portfolio For New Specialty Agent

Acting Movies TV Film
Friday, 14 March 2014

After years of not being asked for headshots because headshots are useless because my height and physique are the important factors in my castings - the number of times I was called in as an agent sent a photo of my face only to be told "Why didn't your agent tell us you were so tall?" to which the only answer I had was "Because my agent doesn't do his job properly."

CONANFB5A3144

Jimmie Wings New Intense Headshot For Conan

So  why did I go and get headshots now? Well the answer was to find a specialty agent where ALL the talent is either very short or very tall - how tall? Well you have to be over 6'6" (198cm).

But wouldn't being listed with a bunch of other tall actors increase the competition and make it harder to get work? As a beginning talent that could be a problem, as an established actor with a certain specific niche (sometimes called a stereotype) this is not something that bothers me.

On top of that the Agency specialises in Fantasy and Science Fiction movie placements.... perfect!

International Bodybuilding Magazine And 4 New Film Projects

Acting Movies TV Film
Monday, 03 March 2014

Anyone who checks the Conan Stevens IMDB page will notice a few new additions recently. In fact there are four new additions to the page.

Well about time you might say, well yes, but considering I had last year off in The Philippines to fix a nasty case of metabolic syndrome (diabeties, leaky gut, severe mental fog, ineffective immune system, battling with 5 hrs a day exercise to keep lean, hypo thyroid, chronic fluoride poisoning, chronic fatige, adrenal exhaustion, magnesium deficiency, hyper calcemia, etc) not to mention the massive frustration at having eaten exactly the diet we have always been taught to eat when it turns out nearly all that information is incorrect.

So besides all that I have still managed to be somewhat productive while returning to health.

The German Vikingdom DVD Cover Is Conan

Acting Movies TV Film
Saturday, 11 January 2014

Pretty chuffed about this:

vikingdom-german-cover2

That is Thor, the character that I play as the entire DVD cover for the German release, and probably other European releases as well.

I'm pretty impressed, I know it's not a blockbuster movie but it is again another step onwards and upwards and it is a milestone in my career.

In other news 2014 looks like it could be a rather busy year for me, I hope so as I am very keen to work and gain more experience. Let's see how it all pans out.

And a BIG thanks to all my friends and associates enabling all this, without these guys I'd be a very struggling actor still.

And thanks to Giulia from Germany for emailing this to me :)

 

Song About Bullying by Con Demetriou

Acting Movies TV Film
Wednesday, 08 January 2014

My good mate from Australia, Con Demetriou, has made a song about bullying and why many guys started bodybuilding - I know this is one of the reasons that I started when I was a skinny 15 year old.

Con is a professional bodybuilder getting close to the top 10 in competitions now and has a bright future, I remember talking to him about 4 years ago when he had decided to go all out to live his dreams and had given up everything in his old life to make the attempt to make it all happen.

Here is the song on Youtube "Get Swoll" , Con is also starting to produce his own movie. Watch out for him, he is a driven individual and will accomplish what he puts his energies towards.

 

 

Massive Conan Interview Over At TORn

Acting Movies TV Film
Sunday, 20 October 2013

TheOneRing.net has published a massive (11 typed pages) interview with me about pretty much everything Conan, well you'd expect a lot in 11 pages wouldn't you?

Pop over  and read it, there is a fair bit of information not yet covered on this website.

TORn? Yes, it's THE big Tolkien fansite - in fact it is so special withing the community that the editors were invited to the set while we were filming "The Hobbit" - the only media allowed on set at all. If you are interested in the LOTR or Hobbit trilogies or are a Tolkien fan and have not yet seen the site do yourself a favour and join the discussions over there.

PS I auditioned for a comedy movie and sent the tape off via download link on a private server yesterday. I was happy with the acting I filmed, let's hope I fit what the Director  wants.

PPS The last two WOW! projects I was up for chose other directions so I won't be appearing in nor discussing them again.  Sorry about that.

 

Watch Vikingdom On Your Computer on Amazon VOD

Acting Movies TV Film
Sunday, 13 October 2013

Click to watch it now on Amazon Video On Demand (VOD)

Vikingdom has finished it's limited run in US theatres and is now available from Amazon to watch it over the Internet, just click the DVD cover photo above.

As you can see that's me featured heavily right there on the cover, the big RED headed god like being clutching his oversized hammer.

That's nice, there is a difference in having worked in a movie and being on the actual cover. I think, and I may be mistaken, that it adds to my acting credibility and status which is what helps drive your career forward in this very competitive career choice.

As a side note with this additional publicity from the release of this I have been firmly driven into the "Top 5000" actors on the IMDB website, another sign that I'm finally starting to do OK.

Pretty happy with both of these developments :)

Game of Thrones Audition Tape and Interview

Acting Movies TV Film
Tuesday, 23 July 2013

Would you like to see the original Conan Stevens audition tape for Game of Thrones? The Audition take as Drogo. Drogo? But didn'y I play as Ser Gregor "The Mountain" Clegane - yes but Gregor was not in the pilot episode so I auditioned for Drogo knowing that I was unsuitable but hoping to get before the Casting Agents before the official casting call for Gregort went out (if the show was green lit).

You can see in the beginning of the interview I stress my size rather a lot, as I impossibly tried to live up to the massively built 8ft tall character I hoped to play.

Well now you can, and you can read a LOT more about Conan's work as Gregor Clegane in Season 01 over at HBOwatch.com

Thanks go to MJ Snow for asking relevant and interesting questions, though i am known for doing long interviews this is probably the longest interview I have yet done.

Just recieved a phone call. Wow.

In fact biggest wow yet. In fact this calls for a beer or two and some BBQ chicken guts.

That's all for now, let's see what happens....

PS Of course I cannot say anything, if things do not work out then this is the first and last you'll likely hear of it, if things do work out well then you'll have to wait until the official announcement.

 

Answers on GoT Gregor Clegane For Fan Emails

Acting Movies TV Film
Wednesday, 26 June 2013

I have been receiving a fair few emails from fans of Game of Thrones regarding rumours that I might appear in GoT Season 04, in a word I have not been contacted for this so I have no idea where the rumours may have originated from.

So following on you will find an answer to an email from Jake that covered a lot of points that other emails were asking, and me being particularly lazy to write articles for this site decided to use the email as an article.

 If anyone is interested I'm writing another script - whether it is made or not it keeps my mind active and improves my abilities in this area and believe it or not there is a limit when "holiday" becomes "unemployed" and the whole difference in outlook that brings that even tropical beaches cannot change. Where I come from an unemployed person at the beach is called a "Beach Bum."

As such I have taken steps to create future employment, at least I am working on improving myself and my career, and not waiting on others to help me or give me work.

But back to the point, following you will find the email I sent Jake.....

Conan Style Christmas 2012

Tall Actors Giant Life
Tuesday, 25 December 2012

Well it seems Christmas has rolled around yet again, and I have pulled my finger out and am writing on my blog. Amazing.

So what does a Conan style Christmas entail?

Well it started with sitting on a tropical beach eating breakfast burritos.

How much better could it get?

Well a lunch time check of my email revealed an email from a friend in the industry asking if I'd be interested in a new movie project he is involved in, the offer was fine, the people are good, the role is likely to be interesting, and the other actors I'll be working with are well known in their market segments.

All in all a great Christmas. Now I'm off to do the ex-pat Christmas thing and heading over to a western run pub for tons of western food and tons more local drink with a bunch of foreigners who also left their home countries in search of a better life.

Cheers, have fun and enjoy today regardless of current stresses.

Vikingdom Trailer Set For August 2012

Acting Movies TV Film
Saturday, 25 August 2012

Today I noticed this exchange by Dominic Purcell (Prison Break, Killer Elite, Vikingdom!) and Vikingdom Producer Norman Abdul Halim over at Dom's fansite.

In the exchange dated back in May, Norman says that a trailer for VIkingdom will be release this August, seeing as it is now the 26th that would mean a trailer release is imminent if things have progressed according to schedule (which is rare in the film industry with so many variables).

Either way I think we'll be seeing a trailer for Vikingdom released shortly.
