Michael Praed's Official Websites

  Michael Praed Official Website (http://michael-praed.com/)
   

This website was created in 2004 once there was no one place to find up-to-date information on Michael Praed's professional appearances and activities or merchandise.  You are presently visiting its fan club subdomain, Michael Praed's Fanfare, which became the official fan club after Michael Praed sanctioned it in July of 2005.

  MPNN or 'Michael Praed Network Newsletter' (http://www.geocities.com/Hollywood/Heights/8116)
   

This was Michael's former official fan club which suspended operations in 2003 when its founders became deeply involved in a fledgling business.  Deciding that they didn't have the time to operate the fan club properly, Kate Raymond and Morn Geiger formally retired MPNN in 2005.

'Robin of Sherwood' websites

  'Spirit of Sherwood' (http://www.robinofsherwood.org)
   

This is the official US website for 'Robin of Sherwood', utilizing the leadership talents of Christine Alexander and webmistress Tirza van Rijn. It features short bios on all the major cast members, contact information for fanzines and fan clubs, various collectable merchandise that were issued, series photographs, an episode guide, a timeline, 'RoS' con recaps, a list of locations filmed for the series, a listing of the contents of the infamous 'RoS' blooper tape, and series trivia.  'Spirit of Sherwood' conventions, called 'Weekend in Sherwood', are held at irregular intervals, offering the opportunity to meet stars of the show.  It's a small convention, so guests get a lot of one-on-one time with the attendees.  Michael Praed was a guest in 1997

  'Nothing's Forgotten' (http://www.myspace.com/roscon2013)
   

Plan early! The next UK 'Robin of Sherwood' con is 'Nothing's Forgotten' in 2013 when fans will gather to celebrate the show's 30th anniversary. As one might expect, planning is in the early stages yet. Details relating to the 2013 con will be posted as they become available. Watch for updates on either their My Space page or the Facebook page. The organizers are Anna Georghallides (Celebphoto Studios/Vineyard Films & Entertainment Ltd.), Gary and Pernille Rhodes, and Alison Bick.

  'Legend' (http://homepage.ntlworld.com/peter.grand/index.html)
   

'Legend' was the name of the British convention for 'Robin of Sherwood', held between 2004 - 2008.  Like it's predecessor 'Silver Arrow', it offered a banquet with a parody performed by The Offstage Theatre Group, discussions with the cast and crew, coach trips to locations important to the series, either in Robin Hood lore or for filming. 

  'Silver Arrow' (http://www.robinofsherwood.org/SA/)
   

'Silver Arrow' is the name of a long-running British convention for 'Robin of Sherwood'.  First held in 1997, the last 'Silver Arrow' convention held on the show's 20th anniversary in 2003.  It typically offered panels with cast and crew, a banquet with performances by people specializing in medieval-inspired activities, coach trips to locations important to the series, either in Robin Hood lore or for filming.  The last 'Silver Arrow' convention was well attended by members of the cast and production team.  Michael Praed was extremely busy, but took time out of his demanding rehearsal schedule to spend a little time with his fans.

  SciFi Channel's Discussion Board (http://bboard.scifi.com/bboard/browse.php/1/5/2029?)
   

This is all that remains of SciFi.com's website devoted to 'SAJV', which is fine since it is probably the best part of it.  All of the major cast members joined in posting on the bboard and took part in chat, as did the show's creator.  Michael Praed read the forum very thoroughly and posted to the board.  He also joined a chat.  Excerpts of the chats are available on the other 'SAJV' sites.

  Two Evil Monks' Guide to The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne   (http://www.twoevilmonks.org/sajv/introduction.htm)
   

A hilarious, well-written episode guide with lots of photos is the star of this website.  Also features introductions to the characters, the concept behind the series including information from it's creator Gavin Scott, chat reports, and a multimedia archive. Again, some broken links here, but fantastic material.

  His Majesty  Japanese Flag (http://praed.hp.infoseek.co.jp/)
   

When it comes to loyalty, Japanese artist Atsuko O'gawa must reign supreme over anyone except Michael Praed's immediate family.  Atsuko has been known to travel half-way around the world in order to see Michael for a few hours in a play or convention before boarding a jet for the long flight home.  Detailed pen and ink drawings by Atsuko are collectors' items.  Her website is written in Japanese, but is worth the trip simply for the photographs.

  HMS Michael Praed  (http://www.facebook.com/)
   

HMS Michael Praed is a 'Facebook' fan site for the admirers of Michael Praed and his varied and successful career.

Because they are a closed group (many of the the members like the privacy and protection from outsiders) anyone wishing to board this ultimate fantasy cruise needs to email the webmaster directly ( ) or can contact them on 'Facebook' under the title of HMS MICHAEL PRAED. They promise all enquiries will be swiftly answered.  Bon voyage!

  Chest Hair Moments (http://www.CHM.michael-praed.org/)
   

This is a wonderful, imaginative, humorous website created by Danaan (Loralee Thompson) who unexpectedly passed away in 2003.  It features many photographs of Michael Praed, most featuring the chest hair mentioned in the title of the site.  Loralee and friends also collected a number of audio sound files of Michael Praed.  Recordings come from television shows, audio internet chats, and movies.  One bonus is a recording of Michael Praed singing 'Love Changes Everything' from 'Aspects of Love'.  Four screensavers are offered, tying photographs of the actor/musician with his own songs.  The material was taken from Michael Praed's privately released album 'For My Friends'.

Although Irina's lovely 'Robin of Sherwood' site (with this sizable Michael Praed section) is extremely slow for people who use a dial-up connection, her high resolution animations and graphics make it worth the wait.  She has a number of gorgeous photographs, wallpapers, screensavers and sound bytes.  And yes, although most of it is written in Russian, it is easy to follow.

Zimmerman has twice appeared with Michael Praed.  Their first collaboration was on Susan Stroman's innovative "Contact" where Praed had the unusual experience of dancing for a long segment of the piece.  There was an obvious chemistry between the two, and they were paired again later in Carl Djerassi's   "Three on a Couch", memorable for a sizzling scene with a mango.
