Los Angeles, CA — Representatives for Grand L. Bush announced today that the former Hollywood actor has signed with Echo Tech Imaging Center, a Southern California-based company. Bush joins a decorated team of highly-skilled diagnostic medical sonographers, hand-picked to provide hospitals, out-patient medical centers, doctors’ offices and community clinics with state-of-the-art ultrasound services.

Bush recently accepted a contract with Echo Tech Imaging Center, after receiving notable certifications from the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers and demonstrating his skills in person.

Bush’s foray into the medical industry developed after he appeared in more than 100 stage, television and film productions. He is best known for the memorable roles he played in such big box-office draws as “Licence To Kill,” “Die Hard,” “Colors” and “Lethal Weapon.” By putting his acting career on hiatus, the scholar was able to graduate from medical school in 2010.

After his externship, Bush said he became an ardent proponent of volunteerism.

“When I volunteered at Keck Medical Center of USC in the radiology department, I had little notion it would lead to a practicum in the vascular unit,” Bush said. “There is also a joy in participating in health fairs in various communities. In volunteering my skills for the Buena Park Health Care Fair, I was able to help provide free cerebrovascular screenings to an important age demographic.”

Bush currently holds disciplines in vascular and abdominal ultrasound sonography. When he is not assisting other medical professionals, the practitioner is training aspiring sonographers, and administering ultrasonic exams on patients, from infants to seniors, at a radiology center in downtown Los Angeles.

Steve Railsback — The eyes have it, hands down

Hollywood, CA — Celebrated actor Steve Railsback possesses  “the scariest eyes in the entertainment industry,” so state many of his fans from across the globe.

In fact, the topic of his hypnotic-type of eyes has arisen so many times, this unique branding has attached itself to the actor like a permanent tattoo — something that would take major reconstructive surgery to eradicate.

It was a kind of trademark Railsback accepted ever since he portrayed convicted murderer Charles Manson in the 1976 television film “Helter Skelter.”

Railsback played the pseudo hippie eerily to perfection.  But the stage-trained actor is quick not to take credit for those evil eyes which terrified audiences and resulted in an outbreak of nightmares by those captivated by Railsback’s performance in the award-winning series.

“Rather than being my own trait, it was actually his,” Railsback told journalist Zander Silverman in the September/October issue of Exceptional People Magazine.  “So I implemented it into my performance. The eyes you see in my character are the eyes of that character.”

To prepare himself for the role, Railsback said he place himself in isolated repression for about an hour each day, among other tricks of the trade.

For decades, the prolific actor has been far removed from solitude.  His name is attached to scores of stage, film and television projects. His long list of screen credits is available at IMDb and on his official Web site.

Moreover, Railsback is a dedicated husband, father and humanitarian.

He and his wife, Marcy, are staunch supporters of Doctors Without Borders and (WM2!), a program that helps average youth between the ages of seven and 12 deal with everyday problems and situations.  He and his family also provide aid and in-kind services to Habitat for Humanity, cancer research and Families with Children from China.

His rise to fame will thrill you. If you’re an aspiring actor, his story will inspire you.

Actor Raul Julia-Levy bares his soul for Exceptional People Magazine

LOS ANGELES, CA — He has been waiting for nearly two decades to set the record straight and confront some of his most intimate and profound secrets. Ever since he relocated to the United States from his home country of Mexico, news reporters from across this massive globe have hounded the celebrated figure who carries two legendary last names hyphenated as one.

But it was a former American freedom fighter-turned-veteran journalist to whom actor/producer Raul Julia-Levy would become comfortable enough to share his magnanimous legacy, breakdown the complexity of his mystique and explore his all-encompassing passion and dreams — an onion-layered trifecta which has made him a magnet for heads of state, potentates and Hollywood celebrities alike.

In an exclusive cover story for the September/October issue of Exceptional People Magazine, Julia-Levy explicates in graphic detail that life-altering day when his mother revealed to the 17-year-old his true parentage.

Up until that Spring day, Julia-Levy had been reared by his beloved grandfather — the late Abraham Levy, patriarch of one of the wealthiest and most powerful families in all of Latin America.

It was during the dawn of Julia-Levy’s manhood when he learned for the first time that his biological father was a prominent star of Broadway, television and major motion pictures.  Up until then, he was led to believe his father was someone else.

In the article, Julia-Levy opens up about meeting his father, late actor Raúl Juliá — best remembered for his performances on stage in “Two Gentleman of Verona,” and on the silver screen in “Kiss of the Spider Woman,” and “The Addams Family.”  It was a planned meeting that would forever change the trajectory of Julia-Levy’s being and place into focus his purpose in life.

As a man, Julia-Levy is a fine representation of the two strong men who helped mold his character. His maternal grandfather taught him how to love and respect the world around him. His biological father showed him how to live.

Julia-Levy has grown to become an accomplished animal welfare advocate, actor and film producer.  He is set to star in “Havana Heat,” opposite Wesley Snipes and Joey Lawrence.

Also look for Julia-Levy to star in “Chronicles of the Mayan Tunnel,” a screen adaptation of a book he authored by the same name.  The 3-D film is slated for a December, 2012, release.

The multi-talented humanitarian has vowed to donate his salary and a percentage of box office receipts to aid the indigenous peoples of Mexico and other benevolent causes.
