Chronicling his own life and times, William B. Davis, the actor who played the notorious villain Cancerman on The X-Files, discusses his loves, losses, hopes, fears, and accomplishments in this unique and engaging autobiography. An all-access look into the life of a versatile actor, this life story includes anecdotes, recollections, and gossip from roles with such greats as Laurence Olivier, Maggie Smith, Martin Sheen, Brian Dennehy, and Donald Sutherland. From the University of Toronto and theater school in Britain to Hollywood and appearances on Smallville and Stargate SG-1, this memoir recalls one actor’s journey from the main stage to the mainstream.
WHERE THERE’S SMOKE…Musings of a Cigarette Smoking Man was an interesting read. When I first received the book, I thought it was going to be about his time on the X-files. Being a fan of the show, this was why I wanted to read it. I was however pleasantly surprised that it was more than just that. It was about life and times of being an actor, the gossip, the hardships. He holds nothing back. This was my first autobiography and one that has drawn me into reading more.
