David James Elliott Interview

Q: What made you decide to get into acting?

David James Elliott: “I was in rock and roll for a while and I had been bitten by the performance bug, it seemed to be my calling in my soul. I got frustrated dealing with musicians. It wasn’t round enough for me, it was one-sided. So, I tried acting in high school briefly—well, we read a play. It was more my calling and I auditioned for theater school and I got in and the rest is history.”

Q: You were in a rock band in your teens, do you ever wish you had gone down that path?

David Elliott: “I tried it, I quit school for a period of time. It was a rough time, we lived in a boarding house, I worked in a belt factory, trying to make a go with the band. We were gigging around Toronto. It was a rough go, it was fun, but it just looked like it was going to be a nightmare. I had quit school and I went back to school. In the end, it wound up being the right thing.”

Q: What do you miss most about working on “JAG?”

David Elliott: “I miss my friends. I had a lot of fun. In the end, there wasn’t really anything left for my character to explore. I miss the comradery of my buddies and going in every day. I still stay in touch with some of the guys. We were together for 10 years. We used to say that you forge friendships in high school that last a lifetime. We’ve been together twice as long as you were with your high school friends.”

Q: Talk about your role on “Close to Home?”

David James Elliott: “I play the assistant D.A., I’m running the district attorney’s office. It’s a different kind of a character, he’s from Manhatten, he’s a pretty fast moving, high-paced guy with political aspirations. I’m not duking it out in a courtroom anymore, I’m running a team of lawyers. I’ve been working in the war room. It’s a different take on things, he’s an interesting character—he’s fun. The schedule is not killing me, which is nice. I get to go in, do some stuff and I get some free time to have a life and spend some time with my children and do things I’ve always wanted to do.”

Q: You’ve done comedy and drama, which genre do you prefer?

David James Elliott: “It’s all interesting. People tell me that I’m a funny guy and I should be doing comedy. I didn’t want to leap too far from where I had been. From what I can tell, from watching other careers, when people make giant leaps from what the audience is used to, it’s hard for them to accept.”

Q: If you hadn’t gone into acting, what do you think you’d be doing now?

David Elliott: “[laughs] I’d probably be a garbage man. I like riding on the back of the truck. I was never really drawn in any direction, so thank God I wound up with this. Nothing really seemed that interesting to me. I’ve always been a hard worker.”

Q: What would people be surprised to learn about you?

David James Elliott: “That I’m only four foot one [laughs]! I lead a pretty boring life. I really don’t do much other than beat myself up in the gym every day and go home and spend time with the family. I don’t really go out much.”

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say to your fans?

David Elliott: “Thank you for all your support over all these years. I’m really appreciative of my fans. I realize that it’s because of them that I make my living.”
