Erik Narwhal's love of film runs deep. Whether it be reciting lines from “Jaws” or the grunts and groans from “Quest For Fire,” Narwhal is a great pretender. Home movie experimentation with uncles and cousins, creating costumes, disguises & horror make-up, Erik is an original storyteller. It wasn’t until Rhode Island writer/filmmaker Brett Davey began writing a series of “whacky” movie scripts that Narwhal began work as a genuine film actor. The first being, “Bigger Than The Man” in 2000, followed by “Goldie’s Move” in 2003 and a bit part in “International Stink bomb” in 2010. He has a feature role in Davey’s latest, “The Marriage Race” premiering September 30, 2012 at Avon Cinema (Thayer Street, Providence).

“Narwhal, who has a nice, unaffected, natural, Everyman style, is the best thing about Bigger Than The Man.” – Michael Janusonis – The Providence Journal.
“Narwhal has a quirky likeability as the film’s central figure, and the entire story has a well-written, homespun charm. Davey keeps his star’s travails relatable, even universal, and Narwhal earns that ever valuable feature film trait – empathy.” Bob Gulla – The Providence Phoenix
