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 .

How I Started As An Actor In Movies

Acting Movies TV Film
Wednesday, 16 August 2006

I started acting at the age of 6 when I played one of the three wise men in a school held Christmas play - much to my mother's chagrin I did not follow through with the wise man career path - in fact many would say I took the exact opposite route.

Here is how I started working as an actor in movies... 


Nerve Damage in My Back - end of a career

Wednesday, 09 August 2006

No bodybuilding injury is worse than a nerve injury / nerve damage. 

2000 I was training hard getting big, getting ready to go to the USA to make a crack at the big time wrestling. I was big, pumped, I had a silly haircut and I had my airline ticket - I was ready.

How Do I Get Big Legs

Now if you are new to this site and say they aren't big legs - well I am over 7ft tall which makes my legs huge.  In fact in Thailand the running joke is that my legs are bigger than a womans waist, which we often test - and it is true (well at least for the sort of women we talk to)....


Korean Martial Arts Movie and Indian Action Comedy Movies

Tuesday, 08 August 2006

My first possible appearances in an Indian movie and a Korean movie, both these initial appearances would then gain me exposure in those markets and open further opportunities in these areas. Remember Indian Bollywood makes more movies and has a larger audience than Hollywood.

This is a part of my goals - to do a major movie in every major market worldwide.


Tall - Extreme Height - Advantage or Not?

Sunday, 06 August 2006

I am going to write this article on the advantages of being tall in the hope that some younger tall people come by and read it.

At 16 I was a very skinny tall kid, I was 6'7", 70Kg and picked on by the bullies in school. I was generally quiet and kept to a small group of friends with similar interests. I was a D&D nerd and hung out in the computer room. At that time I thought did not know there were a lot of advantages of being tall, all I knew were disadvantages...

Sunday, 06 August 2006

Originally I was going to write a ton of articles here about bodybuilding, in fact a complete training manual written in weekly installments, but I have changed my mind and instead of writting article I have now written a new collection of websites for you to get the information you want.

First the big biceps peak article.

And then come back and look at all the other sites in the Bodybuilding-Muscle network. This network is regularly updated with new articles and information on at least a weekly basis so bookmark it and check back regularly.

Sunday, 09 July 2006

Today I train Chest and Shoulders. But first some theory

Right, I feel good. Finally after a good talk with my mate Hilly we have decided to get back to basics, back to what made us big in the first place.

Heavy, heavy weights, low reps. Easy.

Now in the second week of this training my body is hurting like it never did with the 15 sets of 15 reps pumper work out, or any other combo training I have done for a long time.

Forget the Yellow Submarine... lets get the green bus!

Part of the Bangkok Public Transport System these suicidal drivers are often the fastest way to get around. Not being a full sized bus they can squeeze into places and out accelerate full size buses, also since they are still bigger than nearly everything on the road they get right of way.

Growing Up In Newcastle (Beach)

Sunday, 02 July 2006

A brief history of Conan Stevens from 0 to 23 

School in Newcastle was typical for an Australian - some kids picked on us, we picked on other kids. I got sick of a few of the bullys giving me crap everyday and is one of the reasons I picked up bodybuilding originally.

As a typical Australian teenager I spent a LOT of time at the beach, Newcastle Beach, Nobbys Beach, Redhead Beach. 

After school I went on to the University of Newcastle - a whole new atmosphere, responsibility, bodybuilding, machine guns, a few lectures, bayonet fighting, and cheap beer - it was a fun time for me......

This website / blog is to chronicle the pursuit of my dream to become the World's Biggest Action Hero.

I hope to share my thoughts and the hurdles I overcome to live the life I have always wanted.

6 years ago my dreams were torn from me and painfully, smashed cruelly by the random luck of life. For one full year I lay in bed at night, unable to sleep, with tears in my eyes from the agony caused by massive nerve injury.

Now, 6 years later, I am back, I will follow my dreams and like Rocky Balboa  I will make it "against the odds".

This is my story....
