Brewier Welch

He played in Brian Haynes‘s Dollar Baby Popsy as Popsy.

SKSM: Could you start with telling me a bit about yourself? Who are you and what do you do?

Brewier Welch: I am a 57 year old frustrated business manager who turned to acting 5 years ago as a distraction from my job. I immediately fell in love with acting, finding it to be the only work I have ever done that I truly enjoy.

Married for 27 years, I have three grown children and two grandchildren. Spending time with my family is my favorite pastime.

Since I am still establishing myself as an actor, and because it is difficult to make a living solely as an actor in Central Florida, I do several things to earn money. In addition to acting, I am an Interim Nursing Home Administrator, Notary Signing Agent, and Substitute School Teacher.

SKSM: How did you become involved in Popsy?

Brewier Welch: I answered an audition call and was chosen for the part based on my audition.

SKSM: Did you have to audition for the part or was it written directly for you?

Brewier Welch: See previous answer.

SKSM: You worked with Brian Haynes on this film, how was that?

Brewier Welch: Brian is a huge Stephen King fan, so it was fun working with him because his enthusiasm was contagious. This was a dream come true for him to be able to make this film and I am happy to have been a part of that.

SKSM: Was there any funny or special moment when they made the movie that you would like to tell me about?

Brewier Welch: My scenes were filmed at night and in February it does get chilly in Florida, so I wore long johns under my costume to keep warm. Because I had to wear long, fake fingernails, I was unable to use the bathroom without help. One unlucky guy had to go with me, unzip my pants, and well…help me! I thought it was hilarious, but I felt bad for him.

SKSM: Do you still have any contact with the crew/cast from that time? If so with who?

Brewier Welch: I still talk with Brian form time to time. I also see Guido Roncallo (Mr. Reggie) at auditions on occasion.

SKSM: What did you do after Popsy?

Brewier Welch: I continue to audition and perform in films, TV shows, and commercials. Currently, I have Coors Light TV and Radio commercials running, with another commercial to be released in a couple of weeks. I had a small part in the HBO TV movie “Recount”, starring Kevin Spacey, due to premier on May 25th and my fourth episode of Dr. G: Medical Examiner will premier on May 30th.

SKSM: You are only seen at the end of the film; didn’t you wish that you could have done more?

Brewier Welch: As an actor, I always want to have a large role. However, for this film to work, my appearance needed to be at the end.

SKSM: Are you (or were you) a fan of Stephen King’s work?

Brewier Welch: I think Stephen King is a great writer with a vivid imagination; however, I have not followed his works closely.

SKSM: Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. Is there anything else you want to say to the fans that read this interview?

Brewier Welch: I think this film turned out really well and I hope that all the fans will someday get an opportunity to see it. It is my understanding that decision is up to Mr. King.
