Ottawa, ON – Victor – the Victor Davis movie aired last Sunday night on CBC. Many Canadians were glued to their TV set, and for 2 hours, they where privileged to get a glimpse of a Canadian Hero being born. Canadian writer and actor Mark Lutz (Angel, Friends, E.R) played the lead role of Victor, Canadian Olympian Gold Medalist.
What inspired Mark Lutz?
Mark Lutz felt compelled to tell a story about Victor, who was a childhood swimming hero to Mark in his own years as a competitive swimmer. His passion for the sport and admiration of Victor as a childhood hero led him to write this inspirational yet tragic story of Victor’s life.
