Bill Kraus

B.D.Wong and Ian McKellen night-filming on the backlot at Universal Studios
<BR><BR><I>After principal photography I was called back for an extra scene to be shot on location in San Francisco where Kraus and his lover lived. I enter the apartment after a three week visit to Washington DC, briefly kiss my lover and exit with him presumably to bed.  A young executive from the producers observed shooting on a remote-control video screen away from the set, whence he sent a message that the scene was getting too steamy.  I remonstrated and was warned that any such intimacy would alienate viewers,  even in a film about AIDS.  As the film opened with scenes of the epidemic raging in Africa with diseased and bloodied corpses being burnt (and all this before the opening credits) I felt that any audience who had survived that shock, could take a peck on the lips between two men without too much angst.  Nevertheless, the new scene was not broadcast.</I>

Bill Kraus  - lesbian/gay liaison officer to the congressman from San Francisco.
<BR><BR><I>Roger Spotiswoode (a fellow Brit) told me he could not find an appropriate American actor willing to play the openly gay character at the heart of the story.  Newly out as a gay man, I was more than happy to be cast as Bill Kraus.  I was however nervous as I was the wrong nationality, looked nothing like the curly-headed Kraus and was 15 years older than he was when he succumbed to AIDS in his 30s</I>
