The year 1999 was an important time for actor Brian Dragonuk. He was working 43 days on the film The Replacements, which was the first movie he acted in. As The Replacements was coming to a close, Brian along with others went over to the Senator Theatre to shoot the opening scene of John Waters film Cecil B. DeMented. Working on John Waters set was the defining moment in Brian’s acting career.
Weekly Brian will travel to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, and Virginia for auditions. Since most acting jobs are five days or less, Brian is proactive in finding 60-80 acting jobs every year. The Randallstown, Maryland native has received training from Brenna McDonough, Gary Wheeler, John Strawbridge, Mark Redfield, Tom Logan, Joe Ripple and Mark Lapadola. Brian’s hardest role was playing Chief of Security Rick Rescorla in Countdown to Ground Zero. This was a very emotional role since it’s based on a real person who lost their life for this great country. It is shown on the History Channel on 9/11 every year.
Brian has worked on over 550 different projects in 11 years of acting. He played roles in independent films like 2012 Seeking Closure and The Color of Rain is Red. He has done work on TV series like 17 episodes on The West Wing and America’s Most Wanted. Brian set a goal for himself to do 3-4 local independent films and 2-3 student films every year. To draw independent films to Baltimore City, Brian
feels that the city needs incentive programs right now. Out of all the actors he has worked with, Brian’s favorite is Martin Sheen (West Wing), who was very down to earth and approachable.
