Just found, and love, these vintage publicity stills (1984) featuring then 20-something Keanu Reeves and his co-star, Carl Marotte in a Toronto theatre production of "Wolfboy," an adaptation of writer Brad Fraser's novel, Love and Human Remains

Two more - including one of them kissing - after the jump.

Wow! Blast from my youth. Carl and I were young actors together at the Shaw Festival and he was (and I'm sure still is) a superb actor! He went on to Canadian TV stardom in a CBC hockey drama called "Lance et Compte!" ("He shoots! He Scores! en anglais). He was certainly beautiful and alas quite straight. I remember reading the play when he was auditioning for it. I never knew it had been a novel! Mr. Fraser also went on to bigger things, but what ever became of that Reeves boy?

I love your posts, Ms. Brame! You should plumb the depths of the Buddies in Bad Times archives or the Theatre Passe Muraille's files (they staged Wolfboy). You might even find some pics of me! I recall being briefly quite pretty myself for a month or two in 1987.

OK, a picture of you as a young man!! ThnX

This is fantastic! Thank you for posting this. Love. It.
