Sofia Troop (Kat, the fae with the forked, purple tongue in episode 5.5 of LOST GIRL) is Harper in the George D’Amato movie BLUR, which was filmed in Las Vegas. The story centers on Harper and Paul on a cross-country road trip in a purple Oldsmobile Cutlass convertible. Harper’s cell phone obsession blinds her to the vanishing intimacy in her relationship with Paul. The film’s tag line is: “Infidelity can hide in plain sight.” BLUR had its premiere at the Bloor Cinema in Toronto on 16 July.
TWO 4 ONE, Maureen Bradley‘s award winning 2014 dramedy co-starring Naomi Sneickus and Gavin Crawford, is now available on iTunes Canada. No indication yet when it will be available in the US. Sneickus (the talent agent in LOST GIRL episode 9, Fae Day) has small roles in two new films. She is Ellen in THE STEPS, which is about a New Yorker and his sister who visit their father to meet his new wife, only to hear the couple announce that they’re adopting a child to bring the family together. (Ellen is the social worker who interviews the family about the adoption.) Also in the cast of THE STEPS is Kate Corbett (Stacey the Valkyrie).
Describing HAPPILY EVER AFTER (aka IF YOU SEE HER), another film due out soon directed by Joan Carr-Wiggin, Sneickus told Talent Monthly: “A gal from a small town goes home to look after her sick father. She meets up with her old best friend and is thrown into living like it’s high school all over again. I play one of the ex-high school friends and get to wear too much makeup and purple taffeta.”
Ali Liebert (Crystal) stars in THE DEVOUT, a film that tells the story of Darryl (Charlie Carrick) and his wife Jan (Liebert) who live in a religious, rural town. Their faith is tested when Darryl starts to believe that his dying daughter was an astronaut in a past life. The story is based on true events, and was filmed last winter in and around Victoria, British Columbia. It should be released later this year. Liebert described her character to Michael D. Reid of the Victoria Times-Colonist: “We go through overwhelming stages of grief and her husband has become unreliable,” she said. “His belief is putting stress on our relationship.”
Caitlin Cronenberg is getting ready to publish a new book of photographs, and Christine Horne (The Keeper) is in it. It’s called THE ENDINGS, and is a collection of short stories, each told through a series of still images with no text. Actresses were chosen as the subjects of the stories so that emotion would be conveyed as it would be in a film. Cronenberg told Hannah Yakobi of FAJO Magazine: “Our first session was a local Toronto actress, Christine Horne; she’s just phenomenal. She really set the bar high. I won’t list everybody, but we’ve done Sarah Gadon, who is my favourite person in the world, Nina Dobrev, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Charlotte Sullivan, Mena Suvari and Alison Pill.” Cronenberg’s previous book, POSER, can be purchased from her website for $55.
