It’s here- the Murdoch Mysteries episode I taped last summer or spring or fall or whenever. It is airing January 21st on CBC here in Canada at 9 pm or whenever it airs in your part of the country. It will be posted online after at CBC.ca for your online viewing enjoyment.
I’m still amazed that it was all my own hair….

It’s that time of year again, when the Christmas movies rise from the vaults and replay one more time. So if you missed The Town Christmas Forgot the first gajillion times or just can’t get enough of me as Sam Bee, not this Sam Bee who is actually a friend of mine, in my mustard polyester diner uniform, have at ‘er because it’s on again. I believe it’s airing in the UK judging from fan feedback- yay UK fans!- and will most likely be on again in Canada on the W network. This week it’s airing on Hallmark in the US of A on Wednesday, November 28th at 6/5 C so check your local listings. We had a blast making this film- I can’t begin to tell you how much fun it was. Hope you get a kick out of it and Lauren Holly and I in felt Christmas trees.

A great friend of mine, the lovely and talented Mary Krohnert, asked me to fill in at the last minute as part of the calendar shoot for the CCLC- the Crazy Cat Lady Collective, an artistic and provocative advocacy project created to help educate people about the plight of homeless and feral cats. It’s a wonderful project, created by an incredible group of women- all advocates for animal rights, welfare, safety and rescue. They have produced an amazing calender for 2013, available for sale online and in select stores in the Toronto are. Take a look and think about buying a few for yourself and friends this holiday season. One hundred percent of the proceeds go towards helping two self funded charity organizations, ARK and G&G Feral Cat Colony.

I did some new shots with the fabulous David Spowart last week, just a kind of see what we get type of shoot, in a great old loft filled with vintage memorabilia in Liberty Village here in Toronto’s west end. I’ll post more as they come to light but here are a few to sample. Check out the Photos page for others.

My old friend and drummer Greg Heard, who played on my album, Lustre- check out the album under music- asked me to fill in for their female singer in his band, The Fires Of during NXNE this Thursday, June 14th, at 8 pm at Monarch Tavern.
Their singer and guitar player are off in Norway for the summer so myself and another great multi instrumentalist, Scott (whose last name I’m blanking on) are filling in the blanks, so to speak. I’ll be covering all the bv’s , perhaps whipping out my awesome tambourine skills….just loving learning a whole sets worth of new original alternative pop~rock tunes. A great group of musicians- should be a terrifically fun evening. Rehearsal reminds me how much I love (miss) being in a band. Check out the embedded links for more information. Likely a one off so don’t miss it!

I have been a certified personal trainer since 2005. It’s a great gig for an actor: flexible, disciplined, creative, and above all, it keeps me sane physically and mentally. I had the privilege of working with 2 dear friends on this video- Mark Mainguy who did the shooting and Anthony Grani who edited the footage into this short piece. People always ask me what it is I do when I train. This is how I roll.

Just booked a fabulous role on Murdoch Mysteries, which will now be airing on CBC here in Canada. It’s going into it’s 6th season, and I’ll be appearing as Jean Palmerston, the proprietor of a hat shop in “Murdoch On The Corner”. I’m heading into wardrobe tomorrow- so much fun to play in period pieces for camera. Nothing says character quite like a corset and bustle. Stay tuned for more details as they come!
