David Selby returns to West Virginia

DAVID SELBY is appearing on stage later today as Abraham Lincoln in the first performance of THE CIVIL WAR at this year's FestivALL event in Charleston, W.Va.  It's hardly the first time Selby, a West Virginia native, has played the president. Despite his numerous turns as Richard Channing on FALCON CREST and Quentin Collins on DARK SHADOWS, Selby has been playing the role of Lincoln since before those characters were invented. You can read coverage of Selby's appearance, and see a few promotional photos of the event, in this story from THE CHARLESTON DAILY MAIL.

And, if you're new to the Collinsport Historical Society, don't miss this extended interview we did with Selby in Februrary, in which he discusses his long-time fascination with Lincoln.
