There have been a lot of amazing things in the years I’ve been running The GATE, and some of my favourite moments were covering TV series, especially ones shot here in Toronto.
What’s the best comic con ever? How about the one that’s coming to your home?
Rachel Skarsten is one of the kindest, smartest and most interesting people I’ve been lucky enough to interview. When I recently spoke to her over Skype from her home in Los Angeles, she was relaxed and very, very funny.
The fifth and final season of Showcase’s hit series Lost Girl kicked off on Sunday with Bo, played by Anna Silk, trying to find out what happened to her dear friend Kenzi (Ksenia Solo), after the season four finale where Kenzi sacrificed herself to close a portal to the afterlife. Bo’s search will take her to Hel and back again as she tries to save the people she cares about, but there will be consequences and decisions for all of Bo’s friends to make as the series draws to a close.
Lost Girl fans spoke up loud and clear once again this month to show how much they love the Canadian series. At the 2014 Canadian Screen Awards, at the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto, actress Zoie Palmer was awarded the Academy’s Fan Choice Award for Favourite Canadian Screen Star, and Lost Girl also won for Favourite Canadian Show, all thanks to the show’s fans.
Winter might be raging across Canada right now, but back when Lost Girl was filming their big fourth season in Toronto, the hottest days of summer had the city sweltering. The cast, for their part, were calm and cool on set as I sat down to chatted with them about the developments from season three, and where things were headed for the show’s new season that was still in the midst of production.
Lost Girl star Anna Silk, who plays the succubus Bo on the hugely popular series, has had a big year since the last time The GATE was on set with her and the rest of the Lost Girl cast. While Lost Girl started filming the fourth season, Silk was busy as a new mom, and she had even discovered that she was pregnant at the end of the last season. Silk had given birth to a boy during the show’s hiatus, ahead of season four, and had him on set with her during filming for the new season.
This Sunday, April 14 at 9:00 PM (ET/PT) on Showcase, Lost Girl‘s third season draws to a close with the finale, “Those Who Wander”, which is bound to shake up fans with revelations and major consequences.
It’s time to be honest with you, Lost Girl fans, about the worst-kept secret on The GATE.
This is it! Lost Girl returns tonight on Showcase in Canada for its third season, and I’ve got the third and final part of The GATE’s on set interview with the cast ahead of the 8:00 PM (ET/PT) debut.
