Ali Liebert (Crystal) has joined the cast of STRANGE EMPIRE, a dark western recently picked up by CBC for the fall. Created by Laurie Finstad-Knizhnik (Durham County), the show will center on a ruthless individual (as yet unnamed) who butchers most of the men in a Canadian frontier town and then pushes frightened women into replacing prostitutes he lost in a recent cholera epidemic.
THE TIMEKEEPER, with Tammy Gillis, will be screened at the Edmonton International Film Festival (Sept 25 – Oct 4). The short film, directed by Scott Weber (who also directed the 2005 feature DESOLATION SOUND) is about a watchmaker who “pawns time from people who waste it”. STOLEN FROM THE WOMB, a Lifetime movie with Gillis as Paula will next air in the USA on 27 July at 8pm. It has yet to air in Canada.
The animated short film FOXED!, with Athena Karkanis of LOST GIRL (Season 2) and Fiona Highet of BITTEN, will be shown at the Montreal World Film Festival (25 August) and at the Vancouver International Film FEstival (4 October). The sitcom pilot LOVE IS DEAD, with Karkanis as Beatrix, unfortunately was not picked up by USA Network. Also in the cast of that pilot was Alyssa Veniece, who will be Riley in the LOST GIRL Season 5 opener.
The Fall issue of Real Style Magazine (due out in September) will include an interview with Anna Silk.
