Paul Amos (Vex in 24 LOST GIRL episodes) is Wren in DARKEN, a fantasy set in a violent prison-like world ruled by a self-appointed religious despot in the name of a god called Mother Darken. When Eve (Bea Santos) is inadvertently drawn into this dangerous place, she must ally herself with the rebels if she is to have any hope of escaping. Rob Archer (Bruce in six LG episodes) appears in the film as The Bard. DARKEN, which will also be a digital series, will screen 26 November at 7pm at the Blood In The Snow Film Festival at the Royal Cinema, 608 College St. in Toronto.
And Amos will be Oberon in a production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM by The Checkov Collective (formed in 2014 by an ensemble of actors to explore classic plays using the techniques of Michael Chekhov). The play will run from 21 February to 11 March at The Citadel in Toronto.
Genelle Williams (Hessa in Table For Fae) will be Skyler Parsons in the made-for-TV thriller SECOND OPINION. During an important investor meeting, Ivy (Joanne Kelly), a brilliant upstart business owner, begins to experience dizziness and crippling headaches, and the doctor she consults (Shaun Ryan) seems bent on exploiting Ivy’s illness for his own gain. Filming has been completed in Montreal, but no broadcast details have yet been announced. Williams and Kelly last appeared together in the 2009 SyFy series WAREHOUSE 13.
Anthony Lemke (Ryan Lambert in LOST GIRL Season Two) is Dr. Felton in STICKMAN, the story of Emma (Hayley Law) who at the age of 7 was wrongly accused of murdering her sister. (She insisted that a creature called The Stickman did it.) After years of isolation, Emma is released to live her life again, those childhood demons put to rest, but The Stickman has other plans for her. The movie will next air 15 November at 4:30pm on SyFy (US). A trailer is available on YouTube.
Emmanuelle Vaugier (The Morrigan) will be clinical psychologist Kendall Schüler in the mystery thriller DON’T LOOK THERE. Schüler’s life spirals downward when a detective (Kirk Acevedo) asks for her help in hunting down a serial killer terrorizing Detroit during the holiday season, and she begins to treat a new patient (Kenny Johnson) who is having disturbing premonitions. Originally titled “Wet House”, DON’T LOOK THERE will begin filming this winter, and should be released late in 2018.
