An overlooked tree. Ceaseless drive. Sean Connery. What do these three unrelated things have in common? They tell the extraordinary story of Ray Wise, who was interviewed by Forrest Wheeler in Los Angeles in 2018. Since youth in Akron, Ohio, he’s always known he wanted to be an actor. His consistent determination to achieve this goal has helped him accomplish many great feats. Most notably: starring in Robocop (1987), Twin Peaks, and Rising Sun; winning an Emmy; and being in over 100 films and shows. However, the most humbling moment was during minute 7 of the interview, where he speaks about his legacy and how he would like to be remembered.
