WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
The legendary Doug Bradley, who donned the pins and makeup of Pinhead for eight of the nine 'Hellraiser' films, has become a cult icon in the genre. Bradley was originally going to take the role of one of the movers in the first 'Hellraiser' film, but opted for the Lead Cenobite instead, and the rest, they say, is history. He is very close friends with Clive Barker, and the two have worked together on many projects over the years, including 'Night Breed' (1990), 'Salome & The Forbidden' (1998), and founding the 'Dog Company' progressive theatre group in London. Bradley is one of only five actors to play the same horror character on at least six consecutive occasions, joining Sir Christopher Lee (Count Dracula), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), Warwick Davis (Leprechaun), Brad Dourif (Chucky) and Tobin Bell (Jigsaw). His most recent genre fare includes 'Pumpkinhead: Ashes To Ashes' (2006), 'Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines' (2012), 'Shame The Devil' (2013), and 'Death House' (2014). In addition to his on-screen work, Doug has performed narrations on several songs by English extreme metal band, Cradle of Filth, as well as contributing guest vocals to their 2008 album 'Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder', on all songs except 'Tragic Kingdom'. Forever a student of the acting craft, Doug is also the author of the book 'Sacred Masks: Behind The Mask Of The Horror Actor', which explores the history of masks in society and their applications in horror films. A regular on the convention circuit, Bradley is rumored to be working with Clive Barker on a re-make of the original 'Hellraiser' film. He lives in London with his wife Lynne, two children, and a cat.
Bruce Ramsay, who played the triple role of Phillip, John, and Paul in 'Bloodline', has over 75 credits to his name. He is perhaps best known for his role of Carlitos Paez in the film 'Alive' (1993), the biographical survival drama which detailed the story of the Uruguayan rugby team that crashed into the Andes mountains. Other films to his credit include 'Island Of The Dead' (2000), 'Collateral Damage' (2002), and 'Da Vinci's Inquest' (2003). In 2011, Ramsay made his directorial debut with 'Hamlet'. He produced, wrote the adaptation, and starred in it as well. More recently, Ramsay appeared as the jaded house boy Carlucci opposite Michael Douglas and Matt Damon in HBO's 'Behind the Candelabra' (2013), recounting the last ten years in the life of pianist Liberace. In 2014, Bruce appears as the mayor of Detroit in the action film 'Brick Mansions' (2014), starring Paul Walker, a remake of the popular French film 'District B13' (2004). On the small screen, Ramsay has had roles in many TV series, including 'The Hunger' (1997), 'Nash Bridges' (1999), 'Human Target' (2010), and 'Hell On Wheels' (2011-2012).

Valentina Vargas, who played Angelique and her Cenobite counterpart in 'Bloodline', has continued her career primarily on Spanish-language TV. Credits to her name include 'Southern Cross' (1999), alongside Malcolm McDowell, 'Bloody Mallory' (2002), and 'Le Caprice Des Cigognes' (2006).

Most recently, she's appeared in the films 'Optical Illusions' (2009), 'Faces In The Crowd' (2011), and 'Night Across The Street' (2012). She appears at horror conventions from time to time to celebrate her role of Angelique and the 'Hellraiser' legacy.
Mickey Cottrell, who played the ruthless role of Duc De L'Isle with such unholy relish in 'Bloodline', now operates his own public relations firm, 'Inclusive PR', and acts on the side. He is most known for his roles in 'Apt Pupil' (1998), 'Weekend' (2011), and the spy thriller 'Salt' (2010), starring Angelina Jolie. He has successfully promoted over 100 films, including Wim Wenders’ 'Wings of Desire', Gus Van Sant’s 'My Own Private Idaho', David Gordon Green’s 'George Washington', and, most recently, critical favorites with audiences as diverse as 'Tarnation', 'Funny Ha Ha', 'Ballets Russes' and 'Down To The Bone'. One of his proudest accomplishments is rescuing Philip Noyce’s The Quiet American from the straight-to-video bin, into which Harvey Weinstein, in the wake of 9/11, was about to dump it because its protagonist, played by Brendan Fraser, was an American terrorist. With co-star Michael Caine, who plays the film’s jaded British reporter, Mickey went to work at the Toronto Film Festival building buzz and persuading critics to talk up the movie to Weinstein. Told by Miramax’s Mark Gill that Harvey was bitching about his manipulating the press (a case of pot and kettle if ever there was), Mickey took it as a compliment and threatened to send Harvey a dozen long-stemmed white roses. Next thing he knew, Caine was nominated for an Academy Award. Mickey has also guest starred on several TV shows, including 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' (1992), 'The Practice' (1997), and 'The Burkittsville 7' (2000). Cottrell has repped independent films for over 20 years, and today, Inclusive PR has expanded its functions to grassroots niche marketing and helping filmmakers self-distribute their films.

Though the series is introduced at the outset of each episode as "the comprehensive and encyclopedic compendium of all things U2", it is, in fact, largely devoted to conversations and anecdotes that have nothing to do with the Irish rock band.
