was raised in Hollywood CA, was in my first film at the age of 10, then the lead in another (3rd prize at Venice International Film Festival) at 14. Moved to Santa Cruz CA in 1965 to
become a member of the first freshman class at UC Santa Cruz, graduating with a BA in Psych (they didn’t have a theater arts dept. back then). Went back to LA for a year, appeared in
dramatic TV and soaps. Moved to Berkeley CA in 1972 and performed with the Berkeley Shakespeare Festival (2 seasons), Berkeley Stage Co., and 3 years touring the U.S. with the
New Shakespeare Co. of San Francisco. Moved to Ashland OR in 1979 to perform with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival for two seasons and two California state-wide tours. Moved to
San Jose CA for the opening season of San Jose Rep.in 1981, then back to Hollywood for a 25 year career as a voice actor, writer, casting director, ADR (dialogue) Director, and
Producer. (For most of this work I’m listed on IMDB and Wikipedia as Tom Wyner.) Moved back to Oregon late in 2005 and began a new career as an audio book narrator ( more than 250
audio books; listed as Tom Weiner on audible.com). Moved back to Santa Cruz early in 2016.
I love animals–at one time had a 15 foot albino python, a 5 foot green iguana, an 18 in. bearded dragon lizard, 2 cats and a lab.
The most fun, educational and interesting years of my life were those I spent touring the U.S., which is probably why I enjoy attending conventions so much. I love meeting fans and
people from different places and cultures.
I’ve fallen in love-at-first-sight twice in my life, and would love to do so again.
