Local actor guest stars in Flashpoint series

Calum Worthy's acting career is stormy these days -- in a good way.

Calum Worthy's acting career is stormy these days -- in a good way.

Fresh from his success in Space channel's sci-fi series Stormworld, the Grade 12 Claremont Secondary School student is now appearing in Perfect Storm, tonight's episode of the CBS-TV series Flashpoint.

The local actor is guest starring as Billy, a student who brings a gun to school to wreak revenge against bullies who have pushed him over the edge.

The series, which airs Fridays at 9 p.m. on CBS and CTV, focuses on a police unit that specializes in emergency situations.

Worthy, 18, said it was the most challenging role he has ever had to play. Ironically, he landed the role the same day bullied teenager Tim Kretschmer massacred 15 people at his former high school in Germany.

"Since then I've always tried to see if any kid I know who could be in that situation needs help," Worthy said. "I talk as much as I can, because now I realize how harmful that can be, how the littlest thing can be a trigger point."
