SHARE TV ACTOR IDOLIZES STEWART

Chris Burke, the star of ABC's "Life Goes On," is a role model for other people with Down's syndrome but says he has his own role model. "I idolize Jimmy Stewart," Burke, 24, said in Toronto in an address at the Canadian Down's Syndrome Society's annual conference. "He's like me. He never studied acting - he just wanted to be an actor. I feel like a role model for everybody. I think it's really great that all of us can have our dreams and hopes." Burke was asked what his favorite television shows are and he came back with a quick response: "You mean aside from `Life Goes On'?"
