King Roman has loved the movies since childhood in Edinburgh when his mother Lady Katherine would take him to see musicals like The Desert Song with Gordon Macrae and Kathryn Grayson and South Pacific with Rosanno Brazzi and Mitzi Gaynor. She also took him to X-rated science fiction films like Creature from the Black Lagoon and It Came from Outer Space, which would probably merit no more than a G or PG rating today. Lady Katherine met Jack Lemmon (China Syndrome), and one of King Roman's favourites, Frank Ifield. King Roman studied acting and directing on the Gold Coast and in Darwin, appeared in The Phantom 1966 where he met Billy Zane (Titanic) and Kristy Swanson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) on set, and filmed a scene for the Flipper television series in which his favourite movie star Jessica Alba starred. His movie career on the Gold Coast was cut short when he returned to Darwin in 1995. Everyone has film favourites. Here are some of King Roman's favourite movies.
