manufactured lie “…I’ve been stolen from, gas lit, blacklisted, surveillanced and death threatened since 1995 (Oh did I mention ridiculed…also very popular with these creepy scumbags). My ex wife Florence had bruises on her face and my son told me of a man hitting mommy. My son told me the man would hurt him more if he talked to me. My acting career was finished virtually overnight and rumor has it…I was nuts! I’m not nuts, but being harassed does have it’s down side, however creatively it has given birth to a fire of inspiration and enlightenment and if I do say so myself…some pretty cool art. I’m sorry to anyone who doubted me or my story. I’m sorry to Kiyoshi Morgan and Lily, my children. I wish this never happened but, trust me when I say that this world we are told we live in is not as it appears. There is a nefarious group of people who do NOT have your best interests in mind. The main stream of bogus media, news reporting etc. is b.s. It is propaganda. We are living in a lie. Their manufactured lie. Don’t let it fool you, I did. I’m sorry. After more than 14 years of trying in vain to unravel what happened to my children and my life and after travelling around both the U.S. and Canada seeking out different wise individuals who, thank God, were inclined to both listen to the kinds of harassment I had experienced and offer advice, well…here we go. If anyone out there desires clues or is simply interested enough to pull back the sheets of hypocrisy and have a closer look inside Pandora’s Box, check out all you can on Ritual Abuse, mind programming ,surveillance harassment, child kidnapping and organized child prostitution…” (Stephen Shellen)

string of impressive roles – “…First he moved to England and became an extremely successful model. Like many male models, Shellen thought he could parlay his good looks and ease in front of an audience into an acting career. From London he moved to Los Angeles where he studied with Peggy Feury, and it wasn’t long after that casting agents were signing him to his first feature film contracts, making his feature debut in the 1982 film Spring Fever. In the next five years he appeared in a number of made-for-television movies. He also had a strong role in the miniseries Hollywood Wives in 1985, where he was able to rub shoulders with Anthony Hopkins, Candice Bergen and Robert Stack. Two years later he was a regular on the series Cameo by Night. But the big screen was never far from Shellen’s mind, and the late 1980s brought a string of impressive roles in movies like Modern Girls in 1986, The Stepfather in 1987 and Casual Sex with Lea Thompson and Victoria Jackson. His career path was growing in all he right directions. He was not only working a better and better projects, but his talent as an actor was being stretched to handle better and better roles. He appeared in the made-for-television movie that was the pilot for the series Murder One. Although Shellen didn’t end up in that series, he returned to Canada in the early 1990s to take a lead role on the Nikita-esque USA Networks series Counterstrike with Christopher Plummer and Simon MacCorkindale, in which he played Luke Brenner, part of a team of three operatives who fought terrorism around the globe. Back in the U.S., Shellen starred in April One, a film about a hostage crisis for which he won critical raves. He also made an appearance as the cocky actor brother of Craig Sheffer’s love interest in the Academy Award-winning A River Runs through It. His scenes with Susan Trawley were referred to by Newsweek magazine as the funniest sequence in the movie. His career continued to blend big-budget, box-office winners like The Bodyguard with Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, and small but critically acclaimed independent films such as Rude, which was named the Best Canadian Feature Film at the 1995 Toronto International Film Festival, as well as receiving eight Genie nominations. In 1997, he was invited to Toronto to shoot what he thought would be a one-time appearance on La Femme Nikita, playing a dedicated police detective who stumbles into more than he bargained for in pursuit of a serial killer. However, he was a hit with the show’s fans, and so LFN made the decision to bring him back in a recurring role for the series’ fifth and final season. Moving comfortably between small screen and big screen, Shellen was also cast to be in the hit Nicholas Cage/Angelina Jolie film Gone in 60 Seconds…” (Stephen Shellen )

Stephen Shellen (Born: 17 June 1957) grew up in Victoria, British Columbia where he was his high school’s star hockey player before heading north to work as a lumberjack. After catching the attention of a talent scout in Vancouver, he decided to try his hand at acting, spurred on in part by the memory of a less-than-appreciative audience during his first stage performance in junior high. Moving to Los Angeles, he studied with Peggy Feury and soon became a familiar face in feature films including “Casual Sex” with Lea Thompson and Victoria Jackson, festival favourite “The Stepfather” with Terry O’Quinn and Shelley Hack, the star-studded miniseries “Hollywood Wives”, with Anthony Hopkins, Candice Bergen and Robert Stack, and the TV movie and basis of the series “Murder One”. Returning to Canada in the early 90s, Stephen had a lead role on the Nikita-esque USA Networks series “Counterstrike”, with Simon MacCorkindale and Christopher Plummer, in which he played Luke Brenner, part of a team of three operatives who fought terrorism around the globe. Back in the U.S., Stephen starred in “April One”, a film about a hostage crisis for which he won critical raves.
