Gerald Charles Dickens is having the best of times. Crisscrossing the United States for the last three holiday seasons, the 34-year-old actor reads from "A Christmas Carol" at posh hotels, libraries and Victorian festivals--much as his great-great-grandfather Charles Dickens once read to worshipful audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. The actor performed the past two nights at the Ojai Valley Inn and will appear at the Regal Biltmore in Los Angeles on Saturday.
