Neil McDonald plays Ares, who is far more interested in manipulating mere mortals into perpetual warfare than abiding by the gods' on Mount Olympus.
Humans are just much more fun, and the gods' are controlling and rife with politics and Zeus' business.
Neil's background includes a BA in acting from UC Santa Cruz and MA in Directing from Cal State Fullerton.
After experience in film, stage, voice-overs, PSA's and communications training, then raising a family, he has returned to the acting here in St. Louis.
Hercules will be his third project after two commercial shoots.
Outside interests include backpacking, camping, photography, gardening, cooking and, of course, a very eclectic range of film appreciation.
He hopes to bring a love of the creative life and fellowship to the set of Hercules.
