"Okay, I did the best I could, then ran out of gas."

Q & A with Paul

Personal Growth in your Journey and getting there.

1.) You?ve probably been asked this hundreds of times before... but I'm curious to know how you feel you have changed as a person....spiritually, emotionally and professionally in the past 30 years (from the time of S&H to the present). I know you?re probably sick and tired of questions about Starsky and Hutch, so I won't go there? lol. Hugs,.. Jo

2.) What do you think about the balance of your life, after all this time? Do you believe it would be differentif the opportunity of S&H had not occurred?... Andres

Paul: Ruminating about what could have, should have, might have been is the last thing I need to do.

3.) Was your family supportive of your decision to pursue a career in the film industry and move to California? ? Linda K.

Paul: My parents were supportive of whatever I wanted to do.

4.) Your life is an incredible journey that has inspired me, what made you take the paths you have and gives you such a positive outlook on a potentially tragic course of events?.. Delia

Paul: Tibetan philosophy describes the ?Tibetan congratulations.? That would be in response to any misfortune, illness, loss, etc?.congratulations are in order because these are opportunities to find your heart.

5.) a. Experiences exist to continuously teach you something about yourself and as most of us know, change happens in the now, moment by moment and discovering all that you are about and meant to be is a continuous process. What are some of the wonderful things you have learned about yourself in the recent years?

Paul: When I am not present?.I?m not here.

b. What are some of the things you learned about yourself that you knew needed adjusting?

6.) I once read somewhere that you were an angry child. Is that true? If so, what caused your anger? Are you still angry about that period in your life?... JF

Paul: Anger is one of the masks of fear. For me to be angry about that part of my life would be making a victim of myself. My energy is better spent trying to be with my fear.

Spiritual Journey

7.) What do you believe about God and life after death? Thanks?Barb K.

Paul: I don?t know anything about life after death. I only know that I am?.and when I ?am,? I know God.

8.) What are your personal spiritual beliefs? It seems to me that you are always looking for some type of spiritual enlightenment, do you feel you have found it?... Delia

Paul: ?Spiritual enlightenment? sounds like something one achieves or arrives at?like a train station. My ego would love to believe?needs to believe in ?arrivals? and accomplishments and beliefs. It helps create the illusion that we have some power over our mortality?which of course we don?t. All we have is our experience of ?now.?

9.) a.There is a lot of Buddhism in your speaking. How did the practice of meditation and mindfulness reveal itself to you? What motivated you to begin meditating?

Paul: Fear was and is my motivator and my path?to love.

b. How has meditation affected you? By this I mean, when (and as) you opened your heart and mind more and explore each practice, what did it have and what does it continue to teach you?

Paul: To witness without judging.

c. How do you think your life would be different without it?

Paul: Does ?Hell? ring a bell?

d. When you?re sitting alone meditating, are you able to recognize the depth of your connection to other living things?

Paul: I once said to a teacher that I felt I had a poor ?sitting meditation,? to which she said; ?Your whole life is your meditation.

When I am striving to be present,?then I am.

e. From your own personal practice, what is the best advice you can give to beginning meditation?

Paul: Acknowledge everything you are aware of; sounds, smells, sensations, thoughts, your breath?.without judging. Just notice, be with it?.even the thought: ?Am I meditating?? or ?How long do I have to do this?? or ?When is something going to happen?? Being present is your meditation.

f. How would you like most to be remembered? What would you like your legacy to be? Pam M.

Paul: In the book ?Conversations with God,? God speculates that to ?re-member? is to re-attach. That is, my arm is a ?member? of my body and I am re-attaching it. When I re-member, I am re-attaching to all awareness, all that is?call it consciousness, God, Existence, truth, love I would like my legacy to be my contribution in the journey of this life to the re-attacchment,?the remembering of our oneness with everything.

Your Journey as a Parent

10. ?We live in an ever increasing hard world. You have done and continue to do so many wonderful things. What are your hopes for your children? If you could have them learn one lesson, what would that lesson be?... Ingrid

Paul: To be present with and compassionate to yourself and to others.

11. What are some of your thoughts on raising children today? Our children are raised but we have 19 grand children and great grand children?Pat

Paul: Our children are the recipients of a history of conditioning. They are also the recipients of their own choice and journey. Guide them with your heart. Show them theirs.

Directing, Acting, Writing and Current Journey

12. Many of your fans would love to see you as the lead role in a nice romantic comedy. (Is that next? ;-) Is there a role or personality that you haven?t played but would like to? ?Pam M.

Paul: Whatever the universe has in store for me.

13. Dearest Paul, I like very much your written ability to express your concepts, ideas andopinions. I like to read your speeches youhave writtenfor various university graduationsand your answers to smart interviewers...Your wayof thinking and elaborating on your feelings and your emotionsis very stimulating for me, and I'm really interested in what you have to say. I've often resorted to your words and your "messages" to face little or big problems and difficulties in my life and in my work. They are always so encouraging, positive, deep andyet simple at the same time. A.) Have you ever thought to write a book? Maybe an autobiography or a "thought book"? I love your way of thinking and writing. It would be beautiful to know you better in your own words!

Paul: To whatever extent I try to write,?telling stories seem to be the most fun and allow the most discovery for me and whoever reads what I write. ?Thoughts? tend to preach and presuppose that others are listening to the same music?and at the same time, as me.

14. You are always very kind with your fans and your public, even when we are a little intrusive or maybe when we need some comforting words from you: it would be very nice for us to be able to do something beautiful for you for once!...Something useful for a possible next project or something similar...Something that could be done all together from all over the world! B.) Is there something that you would like to have, to know or to receive from your audience? It would be fantastic for us (FOR ME FOR SURE!!!) to be able to do something, even if little, for you...Let us know ;-))

Paul: The greatest gift you could give me you can give yourselves. Kindness and compassion.

15. I know that you love animals:I toolove them very, very much and I always have some dog, some cat, some bird or some other creature to help in my house... at the moment I just have two very little cats that are looking for a new house.. C.) Do you think that your family and your two dogs would accept them in your home?!?? ;-)) I'm, sure they would be in good hands with all of you ;-)).

Paul: I?m allergic to cats.

D.) What are 3 adjectives that you would use to describe yourself? ... Erika ( Rome-Italy )

Paul: An ?adjective? describes something finite. I?d rather use a verb. One verb: Being.

16. As an actor, how much freedom are you given to create the essence of the ?life and persona? of the character you?re playing, especially if you don?t quite agree with the way ?he? was written?... Pam M.

Paul: In as much as the actor tries to find the character I himself, as opposed to himself in the character, there?s as much freedom as you want to take. As for the writer?.he?s trying to tell a story too. The challenge is to figure out what the story is and why am I doing this at this particular point in my life? Why now?

17. Paul, what were your most embarrassing moments in front of and behind the camera (directing)? Thank you,? Dianne S.

Paul: I tend to forget them as I do a bad golf swing.

18. An actor (director) becomes an actor (director), to develop and perfect his career and to entertain, to enlighten, and to enrich the audience that is watching his/her performance. Their audience is just as significant as their talent. If no one came to watch, what would it all matter? How do you feel when you affect an audience?

Paul: Consider this: Two actors on stage are two points of a triangle. The audience is the third. In the dialogue of stimulus and response, one actor communicates to the other ?I love you.? The other actor reciprocates that love. The same is communicated to the audience. 1500 people now reciprocate. That feels pretty good.

19. How did your experiences in summer stock prepare you for ?off? and ?on? Broadway? For the career of acting in general?

Paul: Summer stock is like doing a series. In the short term it can be fun because it requires spontaneity. In the long term, it causes one to rely on one?s facilities, (tricks, if you like), and makes taking a chance on failing ever more so difficult. In other words, it doesn?t develop strong muscles or the ability to explore a character in depth.

20. I know that with the wonderful ?KAZAAM?, you started with the character. But, when you?re writing a screenplay, how do you create your characters? Do you start with a basic plot first and then develop the characters or do you think of the character first and then work a plot around them?

Paul: I started as an actor. An actor is, by necessity a subjective animal?that is, he needs to be in a position to be surprised and to react. A writer and a director need to be objectively strong. To have an overview.. My strengths are dialogue and ?character,? and because I enjoy word craft, my tendency is to write dense screenplays that are very descriptive, but my ?structure? of the story I?m telling suffers. That is where my hardest work comes. That being said, every screenplay, as every role has its own unique approach that is discovered in the process of doing.

21. If you were teaching classes on directing, what would your curriculum be like? What are some of the techniques you use that would be helpful to new directors?

Paul: Acting, Dance, Painting, History, Literature, Story telling, Leading an army, psychology, religion for starters. ?Technique? is a word that to me describes the ?how? of one?s journey. Each journey being different each time out?there are as many ?techniques? as there are directors and scripts?.and actors?.and crews?.

22. In the seventies, you said that you purchased the ?Love Letters of Abbie and Anita Hoffman?. Did you ever write that screenplay? If not, do you still have a desire to do something with it?... Pam M.

Paul: It was supposed to be a play.

23. What was your greatest obstacle in becoming a working actor?... JF

Paul: Tired feet.

24. Looking back over the years of directing, what project was your favorite and why?

Paul: When I look back, I get a stiff neck.

25. What is your favorite or most memorablenon-S & H acting part? My favorites are 'Perchik' from 'Fiddler On The Roof' and Cap't Steeper from 'Third Watch'?Beck

Paul: I don?t have any favorites. They were all equally difficult.

26. When youwere in Fiddler On The Roof, were you disappointed that they had cut your song "Any day Now" out of the movie?...bye Sandra

Paul: Absolutely.

RE: Ladies Night

27. Is it easy for you to sit back as an actor when you?ve been directing for so long? Do you find yourself wanting to pitch in or give your POV on how something should be shot? Pam M.

Paul: Directing is too difficult to either presume or worry about when I?m acting. Give me a good book between set-ups..

28. When you receive a script, before you accept or decline, what do you look for in the role you?ve been asked to play? What aspects of this script drew you to accept the role of Art Kirkland? ? Pam M.

Paul: I look for the parallel between what the character and my life at that point in time.

29. It?s no surprise to your fans what a passionate and versatile actor you are. I should think that it must be difficult at times to slip in and out of the skin of someone like Art Kirkland. The relationship with his son was certainly one of abuse and control. And the scene with Emily was especially intimate (especially the European version.;-) and then intensely violent. How do you prepare yourself and get in that frame of mind for scenes that repeatedly go from a charming, romantic or a calm state of being to being red hot and deadly and have it look so explosively real and not forced?... Pam M

Paul: Have a good book and be willing to ask myself when the cameral rolls?.How do you feel, Paul?

30.) Ladies Night is loosely based on a true crime story. Is it harder to play a real person than a fictional character? How much research do you do or how do you prepare yourself for that role. What do you like (or pros and cons) about each type of role? Pam M.

Paul: Even if I met the ?real? character, it would still be me being the character. I suppose meeting the real character would create a ?bond? between us?.

31.) What were some of the funnier moments, bloopers or jokes that you experienced during the filming of Ladies Night? ? Excellent golf swing, btw!... Pam M.

Paul: Here?s where I start wondering what?s in the refridgerato.

32. A: Did you enjoy working with the actor who played your son? The two of you had a great, easy chemistry. Was that movie magic or did you work with him to develop that kind of mood and feel on screen?

Paul: He?s a good actor. Made me look good.

B: Are you the kind of actor who likes to rehearse a scene or do you prefer the spontaneity of the moment, and reacting to what the other actor gives you in the scene?

Paul: Depends how much film and time you have. ?Rehearsing on film? Provides for a lot of surprises.

C: Is it difficult to switch moods so quickly within a go from calm to playful to offended to
menacing all in the course of a 3 minute scene?

Paul: Depends on what I?ve eaten.

D: Among all the parts you have played, is there any role or acting experience that stands out in your mind as special or particularly satisfying? Thanks?Serena

Paul: I like to describe the acting experience as a dance. When I?m ?on the bubble? and present it?s fun. That doesn?t happen very often.

33: What does Mr. PMG think about the responsibility of an actor (or director) in portraying a person in a certain role? Does an actor need to consider what kind of impact a role can have on the viewer(s)? Or does the viewer have sole responsibility and the portrayer none? Thank you?Cynthia

Paul: It?s all about love. Acting, along with all the other story-telling crafts is about communicating. Without an audience, who is there to communicate to?

34. Would you ever consider making or want a movie made of Elizabeth?s book? I know it is a very private, personal, sad, and very terrible time of your family?s life but the book was very spiritual, uplifting, inspiring, happy, funny, sad, heart wrenching, loving, warm, and surreal all at the same time, It would make such a good movie as there hasn?t been a good movie for the longest time that has all these elements. If you directed and produced it, it wouldn?t lose the honesty of the emotional roller coaster the book was. It is a tragic story but with a lot of life lessons and makes one feel that there is a purpose of why we were put on earth, and that there is a reason for everything that happens? Cin

Paul: Too close to see the forest for the trees.

35. I would like to ask Paul whether he can go out to watch a play/film with his family and watch it as a member of the audience , or whether he finds himself viewing it through a director's eyes and thinking how you would have done things differently i.e. is you a "back seat director"?...Regards?Catherine

Paul: People in the entertainment industry make the best audience. They want it to work, and when it does, they are so grateful.

36. We all know that you have worked with and directed many great actors. Yet there is one who stands outin my mindand that is David Soul. What was it like directing Mr. Soul? And your directing you?... Jools

Paul: There are no great actors. There are good actors and great roles.

37. a Do you find similarities in the processes of writing and directing, in that, when revising, or editing - and letting go of how precious those words/pictures might have seemed initially - by changing the order of a paragraph or a sequence, the flow of the story becomes clearer or more logical - i.e. it falls into place and is more real?

Paul: It?s all about being specific and allowing yourself to discover and let things change.

b. Is that what you would call one of your epiphany moments? (It?s certainly satisfying when it happens!)?Jools

38.) Dear Mr. Glaser:

The poem you wrote a few months ago was full of splendor, truth, and very comforting. It was a light shining forth to all.Have you alwayswritten poetry? What inspires you most? Thank you for your time, and care,? Karen

Paul: I have written poetry off an on during my life. I wouldn?t call myself a poet. Just somebody who likes words and images and the feelings they evoke.

39. Have you ever thought about teaching classes for aspiring actorson what you have learned from being in the business (acting techniques included)? Thank you?Amber Bice

Paul: I teach when I direct. As for learning from being in the business? To duck.

40. What advice would you give to script writers? ... Cyn

Paul: Keep writing.

41. How did your experiences in summer stock prepare you for ?off? and ?on? Broadway? For the career of acting in general?

Paul: What not to do.

42.) I know that you are on the board of at least one theatre company. Have you thought of acting on stage currently? I think you're a wonderful actor, and I've seen just about all of your film and TV work. I know the beginning of your career included stints on Broadway. I would love to see you on stage now! Thanks?AW

43.) Hi Paul.

I thought you were fantastic in Ladies Night. I especially loved your scenes with the actor who played your son. I thought they were the best scenes in the movie.

What's it like to go in cold to direct a show that you've neverdirected before? How do you learn the show's format and premise? Howdo you build rapport with the cast and crew? How do infuse your ownartistic vision while staying true to the show? How much time do youspend with the actors? Howmuch time do you actually spend on eachepisode? How much control do you have over editing, music, lighting,etc.? What do you like most and least about doing it? Thanks in advance?Rachel

Paul: ?Episodic ? directing is often described as being a traffic cop. The two most important people on the set are the camera man and the first assistant director because they basically run the show. Most of it is about racing the clock and trying to get an awful lot of work into a tight schedule. If you know your craft, the crew will respect you. Most of the time the actors will too. Some even allow you to push them into places they wouldn?t ordinarily go. As for the ?look? of the show. Producers tend to give this much more weight than they need to. A decent director picks up on it and the cameraman takes care of the rest.. I like the speed of the ride but I wouldn?t want it as a steady diet. You get tired and jaded.

44.) Who did you dedicate the episode of ?THIRD WATCH? TO? ... Jenny Teague.. Mission Viejo, Ca

Paul: I did?

45.) a. If funds were unlimited and you could choose any projectto direct for T.V. or film, which project would you choose?

Paul: Something I?ve written.

b. If you were the producer and could work with any director, actor and actress in the world, which three would you pick?

Paul: The question gives me a headache.

c. Would you ever consider doing another T.V. series?

Paul: I?m at a point in my life when I?d consider anything. Whether I?d do it or not is another question.

d. If you could do it over again, knowing everything you know now, but with conditions the same as in the past, would you complete a fifth season of Starsky & Hutch or still opt. out? ... FSLAYD

Paul: The past is the past. Let?s let it rest in peace.

46.) After all the years spent directing, writing, producing....what made you come back in front of the camera again?.. Deborah

Paul: It?s that ?bicycle? thing.

47.) A: ?Which of your acting roles are you most proud of?

B:-Where you have been the director, which project are you most proud of? ... Linda Kalinski

48.) I understand that you are writing several books. Do you have a specific writing program that you can recommend to aspiring writers?

Paul: Nope.

49.) Did you ever have stage fright? If so, how did you get over it? Or if not, do you have anyadvice for other actors' for getting overstage fright? ... JF

Paul: If you ever find yourself not afraid, be worried.

50.) Dear Mr. Glaser do you really think that a new project involving you and Mr. David Soul will EVER happen, and if yes..............when and in what form? Thanks Jo xx form the UK :-)

Paul: You?re guess is as good as mine.

51.) HI- My question is this: Is there any chance of pairing up with David Soul again to do a movie or television show? The chemistry between the two of you was truly wonderful and there are many fans who would love to see the two of you together again. Thanks?.Pam Hartfield

49.) Paul you were wonderful in Ladies night out. Please do some more TV. Your commercial has not played in our area as of yet, so I have not gotten to see it. But I am sure you have done a wonderful job.

God Bless you and you family. You are a warmand wonderful person.

It shows in all that you do.

You #1 fan

51.) Paul....How do you handle going in front of the camera as an actor after you've been a director for so long? Do you find yourself wanting to help the director, or just try to bite your tongue and be the actor?... Ginger

52.) What do you have planned for 2006personal appearances? Antonio Fargas frequently doescelebrity conventions,giving fans the opportunity to meet him;but itis hard to find out beforehand where you might be doing a presentation, speech, or personal appearance?Much appreciated, Terry

56.) Do you know if you?ll be coming to Montreal, Quebec, Canada in the near future? I?m an extra in quite a few movies being made in Montreal (Canadian and American) so I guess it?s not impossible for Paul to come here. I?ve been a big fan for almost thirty years and it would be a dream come true to meet him some day. Thanks. Jackie.

62.) I have always wanted to know what musical instruments Paul plays. I know you play guitar, and I have a picture of you, with, I think it was a saxophone, so I'm just curious. Thank you. Regards,? Kerry?Townsville. Australia

63.) In the UK we have a very popular and long-running BBC radioprogramme called "Desert Island Disks" where a guest is asked to select the 8 gramaphone records (yes it's been going that long! LOL) they'd like to take onto a desert island were they to be shipwrecked there. It is assumed there will be a solar-powered player but no other modern conveniences, although the island will be perfectly pleasant and have ample supplies of wild food and fresh water. :-)

b. Secondly, I have recently been studying sex education at school and I wondered- how do you personally feel the awareness of HIV/AIDS is put across to young people in schools, youth groups etc, and do you think it is effective?

Thank you very much for reading my questions, it is truly an honour to get the opportunity to ask you them? Much love and best wishes? Ellie xx

75.) Hi Paul,

The love and friendship you and David have for all of these years is a HUGE part of why all of us fans are here. It is a beautiful thing that you nicely shared a part of in Starsky and Hutch that many years ago. Numerous interviewers at the time of the movie premiere would ask you two over and over again what was the main reason your show had suchan impact on theviewers and why the fans love it and you two to this very day, and you both would kindly answer " friendship." There was even a twinkle in your eye the times you pretended not to have a clue. :)

Why do you think that your friendship with David, the unconditional lovethat is clearly there, affects us fans so?

You have written and spoken beautiful things about what is really important in life. You and David have a connection that has resonated throughout this world. I was wondering what your feelings about this were. Thank you very much, Paul!
