Video Interview: Craig Olejnik and Lauren Lee Smith for ‘The Listener’

by W. Andrew Powell
The cast of The Listener

What would you do if you could hear what people around you were thinking? Would you consider it a gift, or a curse?

Returning for its second season on CTV, The Listener stars Craig Olejnik as Toby Logan, a hero-in-training who has come to accept that he can read people’s minds. While he fought his gift during the first season of the series, in the second season Toby is starting to realize he’s got the potential to be something of a hero, and it’s time he started proving to others what he can do.

Joining Sgt. Michelle McCluskey, played by Lauren Lee Smith, as a junior partner with the Integrated Investigative Bureau, Toby helps the team solve tough cases alongside computer expert Corp. Dev Clark, played by Rainbow Sun Francks, Toby’s friend Oz, played by Ennis Esmer, and the IIB’s legal expert Alvin Klein, played by Peter Stebbings.

The second season of The Listener also stars Mylène Dinh-Robic as Dr. Olivia Fawcett, plus nurse Sandy, played by Tara Spencer-Nairn.

Check out the interview with Olejnik and Smith who chat about the show, what fans can expect this season, and some of their ideas about their characters’ motivation.
