EPISODES LIST & Screencaps

It’s about two brothers, one a rising local politician and the other a local crime boss who mysteriously returns after years in exile/on the run. Guess which one I play! The Providence accent’s a hoot, I loved walking around in character – minus the guns of course - although when Emma and Lily came to stay they both told me to stop talking like a @#%$ idiot. Or something like that.....

......Jason's e-mail to Kay, web-mistress of the Jason's FanZone in November 2004.

"It was deliciously enjoyable to get my mouth around the very peculiar Providence accent," he claims. "For a British actor, it's a real godsend having a different voice like that. We're fascists about voices in England. As soon as somebody opens their mouth, everyone can tell not only where they come from and what kind of education they have, but what they aspire to do in life. For this part, once you start speaking like the character, you start thinking like him."

                         wages and benefits.
