Working with the Best in the Business

Fortunate to meet one of his screen idols, Chuck Norris, they trained together at a local gym. Chuck was impressed with Colin’s technique and screen presence, and encouraged him to move to Hollywood, California, USA which he did in 1984 to pursue a stunt and acting career.
