Summer is around the corner, I just got back from a Canada 150 road trip with Ford, and there are only 85 days until the Toronto International Film Festival. There is a lot going on, but the festival is front of mind since I’m prepping The GATE’s Interview Lounge at TIFF, and my accreditation application came in Monday too.
Welcome backstage to the press room at the 2017 Candys, or as they’re also called, the Canadian Screen Awards. The afternoon started with the red carpet arrivals, and now we’ve moved on to the live telecast where the stars are coming back to chat.
Backstage at the 2015 Much Music Video Awards it’s a revolving door of talent. Since the red carpet wrapped it’s been non-stop, and there’s still another hour to go.
At the end of the second season, Orphan Black had opened up about a lot of the secrets that we had only glimpsed before, including the military origins of the clones, and the existence of male clones as well, but it was really just the start of opening the proverbial Pandora’s box of secrets. Season three looks like it’s set to finally take us deeper into the backstory, as the old status quo gets torn apart.
The Canadian Screen Awards have been celebrating film and television, and handing out honours for our fair country, for a few days now, and Wednesday, February 25 was a big night for Jordan Gavaris, Callum Keith Rennie, Graeme Manson, and Rick Mercer.
The Clone Club can rejoice, because Space, Temple Street Productions, and BBC America announced yesterday that Orphan Black has started shooting the third season of the series in Toronto, which will premiere in spring 2015.
A lot of Orphan Black fans might be surprised by this, but star Jordan Gavaris, who plays Felix on the Space and BBC America series, doesn’t get recognized a lot on the street.
Press kits come and go on my desk–a few less than their used to be, before some companies started sending them electronically–and once in a while I get a real keeper; a collectible that I’m not likely to throw out or ignore. This week, the prize that arrived was the press kit for season two of Orphan Black, which airs on Space in Canada, and BBC America in the United States.
In the premier episode of the Media Box podcast, Editor-In-Chief W. Andrew Powell talks to Arrested Development star Michael Cera, and Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany, new Blu-ray reviews of Cleopatra, A Good Day To Die Hard, and Identity Thief.
The season finale for Space and BBC America’s Orphan Black airs this Saturday, June 1 at 9:00 PM, and in it, Sarah (played by Tatiana Maslany) comes to a crossroads with her “former partner” Art (Kevin Hanchard), while she must also deal with the crazed Helena.
