Chuck Norris is coming to Supernova Comic Con & Gaming this month in Perth and Sydney and to celebrate Scenestr did a retrospective on the career of one Carlos Ray Norris. This was the Cover Story for the June edition of the Western Australian print issue and I was lucky enough to get the gig. This is my fifth cover story following on from my interviews with circus performer Jascha Boyce interview (WA DEC2017), Q&A with EDM legend Opiuo (QLD JAN2018), SNL superstar comedian Michael Che (WA FEB2018) and Adelaide Cabaret Festival Artistic Director Ali McGregor (SA MAY2018). I’m very grateful for the opportunity to have done these cover stories.



There was a lot of freedom with the piece about Chuck Norris since it wasn’t a straight forward interview and he’s lived quite an interesting life. I’m really very happy with how it came together and hope you enjoy it too. You can read it here

  1. Well done with the great cover story, Lloyd. The only thing I know about Chuck Norris, is the fight scene in the Bruce Lee film. I have never watched him in anything else, and had no idea about the Internet ‘facts’.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. You didn’t know about Chuck Norris facts?! Thank goodness I’m here to continue your education. 🙂 When Chuck Norris does a push up, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the Earth down. I’ve seen a few films but many more classics I need to check out. This was a lot of fun to research and put together, I’m glad you enjoyed.

  2. As a teacher, there was a spell there about a decade ago when teenage boys spent all day telling Chuck Norris facts. He’s disappeared from the pop culture present, but maybe your cover story will regenerate his popularity. Nice job, Lloyd.
