Actor and occasional producer Brian Presley took his premier on-camera bow as a soap opera star, maintaining a particularly high profile on the daytime drama Port Charles. Presley then segued into production work as a triple threat, by writing, producing, and starring in the 2004 sleeper Guarding Eddy, made under his production banner, Freedom Films. This inspirational drama concerns Eddy (Presley), a mentally challenged young man with the unfulfilled dream of playing basketball, who finds comfort and solace from a most unlikely source. The film received limited release in the United States and swept through the festival circuit; Presley followed it up with a return to acting, essaying roles in several key films, including a lead in the slasher opus Borderland, a true crime saga about a series of gruesome murders that transpired near the U.S./Mexico border in 1989.
