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.
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.
Season four of Haven is drawing to a close on Showcase, but there’s still time to catch up with the show’s newest co-star, Colin Ferguson, to chat about his character, joining the cast, and the contingent of Canadian actors on the series.
Jared Keeso and Adrian Holmes star in Bravo’s new series, 19-2, a police drama about two officers, both recovering from painful events in their lives, who are partnered on the streets of Montreal and have to figure out how they can deal with their issues and still work together.
Monsters and creatures of the night come in all shapes and sizes, although not if you’re talking about werewolves. For a very long time, werewolves have been macho monsters, which is why it is more than a little refreshing to see a woman ripping into the throats of her enemies in the new Space channel series, Bitten.
Helix is an enigma wrapped in a riddle and buried in the dark confines of a research base in the frozen reaches of the arctic, and it’s fantastic.
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.
As fall seasons go, 2013 has not been all that impressive, especially when it comes to dramas. Aside from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which has been a slow burn, and Sleepy Hollow, most of the new shows have been dull, dreary, or just plain dumb, but Almost Human is finally a new show that begs to be watched.
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.
Kate Hewlett may not have much free time, but that seems to suit the busy actress and writer, who stars in the two-hour crime mystery Still Life: A Three Pines Mystery, just fine.
