Follow Your Heart
Follow Your Heart is an episode of The High Chaparral that’s especially close to my heart because it’s such a wonderful script by Denne Petitclerc. From the minute I saw the script I knew it was something special, then I was surrounded by the best people to work with like Miriam Colon and all the High Chaparralfolks – the bunkhouse, Cannons, Montoyas, and our director Bill Claxton. I knew it couldn’t go wrong.
Bobby Hoy and I were like brothers in real life and that bond is evident in this episode. Follow your Heart is important to me because it shows both the closeness of the Butler brothers Sam and Joe and the bond between the brothers Don and Bobby.
Once in a career, if you’re lucky, you get the chance to work on a show like TheHigh Chaparral. Every day was a highlight in my career and we really were all like family. Then to get an episode like Follow Your Heart is truly once in a lifetime.
You can get a personally autographed DVD from Don Collier of Follow Your Heart, his special episode.
