50/50 “Blanket”

Friday, March 2nd, 2012


In April of 2010, just before moving back to Toronto from Vancouver, I had the privilege of working on the Untitled Seth Rogen Project, which was called I’m With Cancer at the time. I remember there being a suggestion box on set  for a new title for the film. It eventually became 50/50. I had initially auditioned for a very funny role of a Laughter Therapist, which was written out so they brought me back in for the Cute Nurse. Which became the Friendly Nurse when I was cast.

The final edit is shorter than the actual scene but still, a wonderful experience and Ms Huston is one of my idols…

Growing The Big One (Pumpkins, Not Porn)

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

Stephanie Belding, Shannen Doherty, April Telek, Dolores Drake

Really, it needs the sub title, don’t you think? Every time I would tell people what I was shooting they were like, “Um..wha…?”

Last fall, while still living in Vancouver, I worked on a rather lovely little movie of the week for the Hallmark Channel called Growing The Big One, essentially about growing massive pumpkins. It stars Shannen Doherty and the fabulously  dashing and hysterically funny Kavan Smith as her romantic interest. I play Betty, one of the local gals in the small town Shannen’s character relocates to;  we spent a lot of time in gorgeous Fort Langley with a great gang, frolicking in pumpkin patches and filming in the one old farmhouse that seems to be base camp for every movie of the week I’ve shot in BC.

It goes to air October 23rd on Hallmark. No idea where or when it will air in Canada but as soon as I find out, I’ll let you all know. Until then , check out the trailer:
