Hilary Jardine (Susan Jackson) will be Mildred in two episodes of the satirical comedy UPLOAD, a ten-episode series starring Andy Allo as Nora and Robbie Amell as Nathan. The show is set in a future where people can upload themselves into the afterlife of their choice. Nora works customer service for a high-end virtual reality environment. After Nathan is killed in the crash of his self-driving car, his girlfriend uploads him permanently into Nora’s virtual reality. Creator Greg Daniels told Danielle Turchiano of Variety: “Amazon is the perfect place to make UPLOAD, because of their strong creative team, and because it’s a company that could actually one day host a digital afterlife. If I get in good with them, I’m hoping for a big discount on my first thousand years.” UPLOAD is currently filming in Vancouver
Hannah John-Kamen will be Dr. Sophie Hart in SAS: RED NOTICE, a film based on the 2012 novel by Andy McNab, about Sergeant Tom Buckingham (Sam Heughan), who plans to propose marriage once he and his girlfriend arrive in Paris. (Dr. Hart seems to be a re-named version of Dr. Delphine Prideux, Buckingham’s girlfriend in the book.) His plans are delayed when the train taking them from London to Paris is hijacked by The Black Swans, a group of mercenaries led by Laslo Antonov, whose plan is to blow up the Channel Tunnel. (Ruby Rose is a character named Grace, and one synopsis of the film says that the group seizing the train is let by someone called Grace Lewis.) Noel Clarke (DR.WHO’s Mickey Smith) is also in the cast. Filmed in London, Paris, and Budapest, SAS: RED NOTICE will be released by Sky Cinema in the UK sometime next year. Continue reading →
Faye and Ronnie. The hoodie Ronnie is wearing reads “Hoff County High Auto Club”. There is no Hoff County anywhere (according to Google maps).
Best friends Ronnie (Grace Glowicki) and Faye (Erin Carter) are having trouble dealing with the death of Ronnie’s brother Garrett, who was also Faye’s first major romantic involvement. Garrett drove a classic Mustang convertible and died of testicular cancer. His family apparently had a genetic predisposition to the disease, so his affliction did not surprise him. By all accounts he dealt with his own demise quite well, just not in a way that endeared him to others, or that helped others cope.
There is much discussion of Garrett, but there are no flashbacks showing him. Not even a photograph.
Faye and Granville
Dina (Ronnie’s mom) calls Faye for help with Ronnie’s heavy drinking. After Ronnie throws up on the dining room table during dinner, Faye decides (the next morning) to put her still unconscious friend in Garrett’s powder blue Mustang and head for the summer cottage in Invermere. (The starting point of the trip is never mentioned, but it takes several hours, and when Faye tells Ronnie she is applying for a job in Vancouver, Ronnie responds “That’s far.” So the trip probably begins near the midpoint between Invermere and Vancouver, in the general area of Kelowna or Kamloops.)
