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.

‘Black Sails’ brings pirate history to television in realistic, impossible detail

When I was a kid I spent a fair amount of time in the West Indies where pirate lore is everywhere–in books, in Calypso songs–so I am quite familiar with famous and some not so famous but equally fascinating pirates of the era depicted in the rollicking new Starz series Black Sails, airing on Super Channel in Canada–something that made my anticipation and ultimately my tempered enjoyment of the show that much greater.

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.

Anna Silk talks ‘Lost Girl’ on the set of season 4

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.
