From Loren Coleman
Sir Alan Bates played “Alexander Leek” in the 2002’s The Mothman Prophecies. The character’s “Leek” was a name game based on author-investigator John A. Keel’s moniker. The activities and intellectualizations portrayed by Richard Gere’s “John Klein” and Alan Bates’ “Alexander Leek” in The Mothman Prophecies were fashioned after the real-life John A. Keel.
Bates was born on February 17, 1934, in Allestree, Derbyshire, England, UK.

  1. I remember the silver bridge very well, I use to live on the Ohio side in 1960, I was just five years old. I use to run to the second floor of my house to see the showboats go up and down the river. I use to walk across the bridge and feel the bridge bounce and move as the trafic would drive across the bridge. I could also see the bridge very well from my house. also when I was on the silver bridge and a train would be crossing the railroad bridge beside it I could also feel the silver bridge shake. my mother would always say that is was ok, that was just the way it was. I can also remember hearing people talk about the Mothman when I lived there. We moved to southern West Virginia and the bridge fell about five years later.
