One of the most recognizable characters in TV history is Cigarette Smoking Man on “The X-Files”, portrayed by William B. Davis, and if you’re among his worldwide fans who continue to enjoy his appearances on shows such as “Human Target”, “Capricia”, and “Supernatural”, you’ll be as excited as we were to learn about Davis’ new book from ECW Press, Where There’s Smoke: Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man.
From the Press Release:
In his revealing memoir, Where There’s Smoke: Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man, Davis details his life events leading up to his late-in-life success on “The X-Files” and recounts how his character evolved over the course of the series. He also provides plenty of humorous anecdotes and insider stories from the set and dishes candidly about the show’s famous co-stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny.
Where There’s Smoke is an intriguing read that reveals how one of television’s most enigmatic and iconic villains came to be. Davis’ story begins with his childhood acting experiences and how they prepared him for a life of acting and directing which would eventually encompass productions with the CBC radio, theatre, and film. Davis began his career in entertainment studying at The University of Toronto, where he once debated a young Stephen Lewis (a Canadian politician, broadcaster, and diplomat) – an experience that he admits helped his portrayal of the Cigarette Smoking Man. Davis then turned his career to directing, a move that took him to theatre school in Britain and a West End directing career.
Where There’s Smoke: Musings of Cigarette Smoking Man is a must read for all “X-Files” fans and aspiring actors/directors.
