Back From Bulgaria
Howard Dell just got back from Bulgaria where he shot the role of Van Hoen opposite Steven Seagal and Vinnie Jones in the action film Absolution, written and directed by Keoni Waxman.
Dell will also be seen in the feature Dark Rising set to be released in 2014 and plays the role of Jackson.
As a medal-winning athlete and pro football player in both Canada and the U.S, Dell has a deep understanding of what it takes, emotionally and physically, to excel in the elite sports world. He imparts that knowledge through a thriving consulting business, which he juggles with his demanding acting career. Moving easily from on-camera work to projects as a film and television sports advisor, he also trains top North American and European athletes in tennis, track, football and basketball. He is currently translating his hard-won hands-on knowledge about nutrition for health and vitality into a book, Eating Left Because Right Didn’t Work, written for anyone who wants to feel and look better.
Dell consistently makes time to speak out on behalf of various charities. A former national spokesperson for Multiple Sclerosis, he has also donated his talents to the Canadian Cancer Society and the Alberta Lung Association. A passionate advocate for non-violence and anti-drug programs, he dreams of one day establishing a basketball camp for kids. He is also currently developing several children’s book ideas.
Dell’s favorite quote is from the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “Now is the time to make real the promises of your potential.” It is a maxim he lives by.
