When you catch tonight's episode of 24
(Season 6, Episode 13) you'll meet South African actor Gideon Emery
who plays a Russian embassy type called Leon.
Leon - who's a Russian through and through - is going to find himself getting swept up into the action (won't say how obviously) and will go through all sorts of things at the slurpy hands of Jack Bauer.
Gideon's been living and working in Los Angeles for the past four years so I thought it would be juicy for us to hook up with him across the ocean to find out what it was like filming the episode and what life's like for an LA actor.
We chatted by phone and I've put our conversation into a podcast - as you'll see you can either click play and stream it or you can download it and then listen.Podcast length:

I don't have any pics of Gideon as Leon but it's cool 'cos you'll see him tonight.
PS: We all now have two degrees of seperation from Jack Bauer aka we have a Bacon number of 2.
