Dartmouth theater professor appears in ‘Lincoln’
An associate theater professor at Dartmouth College has good reason to see the movie Lincoln multiple times – he has a small role in the Steven Spielberg film.
After Jamie Horton appeared in a campus production last year, one of his co-star’s friends encouraged him to submit an audition tape. Months later, he was cast as U.S. Rep. Giles Stuart, a New York congressman who was bribed to help ensure passage of the 13th amendment abolishing slavery.
Horton acted and directed with the Denver Center Theatre Company for more than 20 years before he began teaching at Dartmouth in 2006. He said it was an amazing experience to be part of what he called an epic movie.
