As you all know, Desirée Lee and I recently had the honor of being guests at the 1st Annual Klamath Library ComicCon. One of the other guests there was the esteemed Mr. Don Pedro Colley. Growing up, one of my favorite television series was “The Dukes of Hazzard”. So, I know Mr. Colley best from his reoccurring role as Sheriff Little from that series. When we told my parents that we were going to be appearing at the event along with Mr. Colley, Dad grew very excited, remembering him as Gideon from the TV show “Daniel Boone”.
Honestly, after seeing his portrayal of Sheriff Little, and his role as a tough-as-nails hit man in an episode of “The Greatest American Hero”, and seeing several of his other roles in which he played very gruff, even downright mean, men, I wasn’t sure what to expect from him in person. In truth, he’s a very pleasant, humorous man. Meeting him was a true honor. I would love to work with him on a project sometime. Mr. Colley was kind enough to take a few moments to pose for the above photo with Desirée and myself before the events of the day wrapped up. Both of us look forward to crossing paths with Mr. Colley again in the future.
