One of the greatest challenges we have in this life is our battle with ego. Other people's egos and specifically your own. Ego needs to be balanced. You need to have enough ego to believe you can do something but not so big that you are out of control. Today's guest has a story that will take us down the road of ego going out of control and the aftermath of that destruction. I had the honor of speaking to a fascinating storyteller, writer, and director Sacha Gervasi. In one of our past episodes with Bruce Dickinson, we talked a bit about his relationship with Sacha and the new project they are working on Scream for Me Sarajevo . The start of his career began on the path of journalism, and for a while, it seemed definite. Not until a life-changing assignment to interview Hervé Villechaize did Gervasi found a new purpose and direction in his storytelling. Producing his first and most transformative script, My Dinner with Hervé (2018) is as much a tribute to the extraordinary life of Hervé Villechaize as it is a crossroad and a journey to finding his life's purpose and truth. A look at the life of French actor Hervé Villechaize, co-star of the hit '70s TV series Fantasy Island (1977), who took his own life in 1993 at the age of 50. Sacha's life has been one hell of a journey so far. You never know where your life's journey will lead you and Sacha story on how he went from journalist to top Hollywood screenwriter and director is remarkable. I hope this episode help you examine your relationship with your ego. Enjoy!
