Hello Steemit-ites

My name is Dónal Logue. I was born in Canada, my parents are from County Kerry, Ireland, and I grew up in small towns on the Mexican Border (Nogales, Arizona and El Centro, California). I was steered to Steemit by my friend, Ben Lee, and am excited by the prospect of this new platform of expression.

I'm primarily an actor, but what I really love is to write stories. me in black hat.jpg

My hope is to share them here with you on Steemit.

Welcome Dónal

Hello welcome to steem Dónal

Welcome aboard! I am looking forward to read your stories!

Welcome to the community! Good luck! Followed!

Welcome @donallogue ! So happy youre here. Cant wait for people to experience your brilliance in this little radical universe.


That's some top notch recruiting there, Ben :)

Even though you have been in many movies/tv shows, I always instantly recognize you from being Quinn, in Blade. Hope you have better luck with your hands, writing Steemit posts. Welcome!

Great to have you onboard, Donal. You nailed it in SoA.
There's lots to like here; I think the real wins for high profile folk are the lack of censorship and trolls.
I imagine it's difficult, being a creative person and in movies.
Not everything you create is going to be appropriate for a full blown motion picture (or album)
It's been great to see some of the old stuff Ben's rummaged up.
If you have stories to tell, this is the place.
If you're stuck on any of the details I'm happy to field questions, either here or on discord, mattclarke#6202


thank you, matt


One of the first hurdles is knowing who to follow.
The New tab is completely unfiltered, and Trending tends to be a lot of shop talk.
Ben's been here a while, so he's done some combing through to get a quality feed. You can 'steal' it and see steemit as he does, here.
You'll need it less and less as you build your own feed, but it's a great place to start.

Welcome aboard, Dónal! Really enjoyed your work as King Horik, Harvey Bullock, and Hank in Terriers.

Welcome, @donallogue! I’m a fan of your work.

“I’m primarily an actor”... what a low key, understated, and humble introduction! You are quite accomplished, very talented and it’s a pleasure to see you on Steem!
Looking forward to your storytelling in a different form.

What in the hell, a star from the mean streets of Gotham is on Steemit!

As well as in Ghost Rider plus an X-Files ep I see (sorry, got Wikipedia open in a tab now).

Enjoy your stay here? You into any other cryptocurrencies?

Welcome! I look forward to hearing more from you. Enjoy this community, it is full of some really amazing people. :)

Welcome to Steemit! It is a very fun and positive media platform! I can't wait to see some of your writings as I am a fan of your acting already! If you need any help just ask!

Looking forward to reading your stories. I assume they will have an acerbic, dry wit and provide insight into the human experience.

welcome join steemit, give your imagination here

Welcome to Steemit @donallogue! This is definitely the right platform for your storytelling. I've seen and enjoyed many of your acting performances, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you have to share in this other form of expression.

Welcome to this wonderful world ... a hug I invite you to visit my blog

Welcome to Steemit. I look forward to reading your stories. Is there any particular type of story you write?

Welcome to the community @donallogue. Very much looking forward to your stories. You acting isn't half bad either :D Ya sorry fangirling a little bit. This is a great community and very expressive. Love the interactions and meeting new people.

YES!! I have enjoyed your face a time or two! SO glad to see you here. You have a stalker in me. Cheers! Welcome.

I’m going to work tirelessly not to have a completely fanboy geek out here, but you are aware how inconceivable it is to my mind (and brain and however they interact), that “Ben Lee, who I spoke with personally about his music, awared me of my favorite character from my favorite meaningful sub-plot in one of my favorite movies.

I’ve always enjoyed “The Patriot” mainly for the acting all around, notwithstanding all the historical innscruacies in the movie.

But my favored sub-plot, far and away, is your character Scott’s evolving relationship with Occam.

It doesn’t take up a lot of screen time, but I think it’s an essential sub-plot, explaining the bigger, underlying issue that was always just beyond the horizon throughout the Revolution, and you all hit your parts perfectly, so much that the scene’s always stayed with me.

The moment when your characater reads that notice about slaves being granted freedom and you ask the slave what he’s going to do with freedom, for me, ranks up there with the scene in Cold Mountain at the Battle of the Crater where the African American Man and Native American man are fighting and pause for a moment to look at each other as if to say “What are we doing here fighting and dying for this, against each other?”

Your subplot in The Patriot is the “pre-quel” to that moment, and the flip side side of the coin, angering the “why are we fighting” question with “freedom.”

So yeah, I guess I did a poor job of not geeking out.

It’s just really great to have you on here.


thank you!
