Local rodeo announcer, Tim Edge had his own taste of Hollywood a few months ago when he was an extra in the movie, The Revenant, staring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Edge, who was one of the men on horseback when scenes from the movie were filmed around Crescent Falls and Nordegg last April.

“Westerns fit into my character,” he said, noting he has performed in movies as an extra previously.

“I’ve been in a few.”

As well as a rodeo announcer, Edge is a rancher, rodeo competitor and fourth generation cowboy, During his career, he spent several years in Paris as lead in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show Disneyland. During that time he performed stunts and trick roping, while also acting as the master of ceremonies for the largest dinner theatre in Europe, speaking both in French and English.

While he enjoyed the time spent in Paris and found his recent role as an extra in The Revenant fun and exciting, he is kept very busy working as a master of ceremonies and announcer at rodeos and shows. His own business, Mountain Edge Productions has achieved acclaim throughout the country.

And when he is not busy traveling to a rodeo or event, he is looking after his own ranching duties.

“As soon as I got home (from the shoot) I was straight back to feeding cattle,” he said.

The Revenant is inspired by true events and captures one man’s adventure of survival after being attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team.

The movie is the story of legendary explorer Hugh Glass played by Leonardo DiCaprio who lives through a vicious winter in an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness.

The Revenant is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award winner Alejandro G. Inarritu (Birdman, Babel).
