INTERVIEW: Mark Ryan, Modern Day Renaissance Man

From Special Forces to singing in musicals, acting to master swordsman to fight director, Mark Ryan is a man of many talents. He is most known as the voice of Bumblebee and Jetfire in the Transformers movies and as Nasir in Robin of Sherwood. He coached Kiera Knightley, Richard Gere, Clive Owen and Ben Cross in swordsmanship for the movies they starred in.

Now, surely drawing from various life experiences, he has written an intense graphic novel. Teaming up with illustrator Mike Grell, Ryan wrote The Pilgrim.The Pilgrim is based on the fact that Churchill used a group of psychics during WWII to fool the Nazis into believing the psychics were reading their minds and from there shows how this influenced future uses of psychics in warfare even as recent as using psychics to try and locate Osama Bin Laden. It s not only action and war though, there are many depths including a soldier who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder who ends up with an entity attached to him and how he learns to live with it.
