Hank Botwinik

I met Hank, who plays the leading/title role in Johnny Walker, recently when we worked together on an ad for, of all things, the FIFA 14 computer game. He struck me as a most interesting, delightful, modest and indeed humble man. The leading role in this movie came his way at a time in his life when he really wasn't expecting to become a "movie star", despite having had a busy career in the theatre in his native U.S.. I found his simple delight in his good fortune a wonderful thing to behold. I was really pleased to meet him, albeit briefly, and here his story. And it just goes to show that wonderful things really can happen when you don't expect it. I hope Johnny Walker leads on to other wonderful things for Hank.
