Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Waverly Earp) stars as Grace, Kiana Madeira (Poppy in W.E. episode 2.6) will be Amy, and Varun Saranga (Jeremy) will play Gavin in the SyFy original movie NEVERKNOCK, about an urban legend that turns out to be true. (Legend was that, in 1986, three teens were brutally murdered after knocking on the door of 59 Oakwood Lane, and the killer was never found. For forty years, kids were warned to never knock on the door of that house for fear of what might answer. Grace and her friends fail to heed those warnings.) Also in the cast are Jodelle Ferland of DARK MATTER, and Eliana Jones (who was teenage Tamsin on LOST GIRL). NEVERKNOCK will air on SyFy (US) on 15 October at 9pm. Continue reading →
– also Eve Harlow, Marci T House, Scott Cavalheiro
Marci T House (Laveau in LOST GIRL episode 4.11 “End of a Line”) will play a forensics officer in FIFTY SHADES DARKER (the sequel to FIFTY SHADES OF GREY) in which Anastasia confronts the anger and envy of Christian’s exes. The film was shot entirely in and around Vancouver, and will be released on 10 February 2017.
In Episode Two of the new SyFy series VAN HELSING, House will play a character called Major Stoker, and one might speculate that the Major is in some way related to the author of DRACULA (however Bram Stoker might fit into the VAN HELSING universe). And House will also be an “attending nurse” in next year’s PRISON BREAK: SEQUEL on FOX, which continues where the original PRISON BREAK series left off, except that some of the characters who died turn out not to have died after all.
Eve Harlow (Epona in the Lost Girl episode ORIGINS) will be Claire in the film WE’RE STILL TOGETHER, the story of Chris, who gets bullied a lot because of his obesity, and Bobby, who has self-destructive tendencies, and an adventuresome night in Montreal. Indiewire’s David Erlich said the film “…is shot with the same sensitive haze and seriocomic tone that defines so many recent indies, but it muscles its way above the masses on the strength of its unpredictability. In broad strokes, it’s true that you’ve seen these stories before: The isolated loner who learns how to respect himself, the stranger who’s way too cool not to have some of his own shit brewing beneath the surface. These are familiar types who follow familiar character arcs, but Klein’s movie pushes them along with the banal unpredictability of real life, and their stories feel bracingly human as a result.” WE’RE STILL TOGETHER premiered on 7 July at the 2016 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
Harlow will also be Julia Swanbeck in episode 4.8 of RAY DONOVAN. The episode is titled “The Texan” and is scheduled to air on Showtime on 14 August at 9pm.
Eliana Jones (teen Tamsin) is Aspen Bishop in THE SWAP, a made for TV movie (based on the novel by Megan Shull) about Ellie, a rhythmic gymnast, who somehow switches bodies with her younger brother, who is a hockey player. THE SWAP is due to air on the Disney Channel sometime in the fall. Jones is also the recurring character Molly Kinney (daughter of the Chief of Plastic Surgery) on the medical drama SAVING HOPE, which recently was renewed by CTV for a fifth season. (SAVING HOPE airs in the US on ION Television.)
Scott Cavalheiro (Tad, the guy Tamsin picked up and shared with Bo in LOST GIRL episode 5.4) will be Daryl in at least five episodes of WHAT WOULD SAL DO, an eight episode modern day parable of an entitled underachiever who, for the first time in his life, is challenged to be a good person when he discovers he’s the Second Coming of Christ. Set in Sudbury, Ontario, WWSD also stars Jennifer Dale (Leviathan in LOST GIRL episode 4.9) as Sal’s mother, Maria. It will premiere on Superchannel in Canada sometime later this year.
Meghan Heffern (Tabitha in Fae-de to Black) will be Evelyn in CHOKESLAM, a wrestling movie filmed in Regina, due to be released later this year. Producer Anand Ramayya, speaking to CTV News, described the story as “…a romantic comedy about a female wrestler with a bad temper and her nerdy delicatessen boyfriend who’s trying to win her love back. It’s a really sweet story and it’s really funny, and it’s a really smart script.” Among others in the film are WYNONNA EARP‘s Michael Eklund, and semi-retired wrestler Mick Foley.
Brittany Allen (Della in Delinquents) is Naomi in the science fiction film INCONTROL, which, according to writer and director Kurtis David Harder, delves somewhat playfully into the theme of addiction. “We’re hoping to make a fun film, you know a sci-fi thriller that people can enjoy,” Harder told Jeremy Simes of Calgary Metro News during production. “But it also plays into asking moral questions and the deeper meaning behind it all.” Now in post-production, INCONTROL will tour North American film festivals later this year. Among others in the cast are Sarah Troyer and David LeReaney (both of whom have appeared on WYNONNA EARP), and Anja Savčić (Mary Collacut on CBC’s STRANGE EMPIRE).
Eve Harlow (Epona in Origin) will appear as an as yet unspecified character in 12 MONKEYS episode 2.9, will be on SyFy and Showcase 13 June at 9pm. She is the recurring character Taylor Kravid on NBC’s HEROES REBORN.
Kirsten Comerford (bridesmaid in Let the Dark Times Roll) is Jessica DeBlance in WHITE HOT, a film based on the 2004 suspense novel by Sandra Brown, which will next air on The Hallmark Channel on 12 June at 11pm.
Eliana Jones (Teen Tamsin in LOST GIRL Season 4) will be Mel in episodes six and seventeen of Disney Channel’s BACKSTAGE, a show created by Lara Azzopardi (who wrote LOST GIRL episode 5.12 Judgement Fae). BACKSTAGE is about students at a fine arts high school dealing with self-image difficulties, tough teachers, and competitive friends. Episode six will be on Disney in the US on 9 May at 4:30pm. The series premiered in Canada on the Family Channel in March.
Inga Cadranel will appear in three of the first four episodes of DARK MATTER Season 2. Her character’s name will be Alicia Reynaud. DARK MATTER will premiere on SyFy (US) and Space Channel (Canada) on 1 July.
Nadine Djoury (Lisa, the nurse at Lauren’s clinic in Big In Japan) is Julia in CBC Punchline’s comedy NEWBORN MOMS, the “untold story of what it’s like to be a new parent struggling with sleepless nights and self-doubt”. Created by Djoury and Aurora Browne, the series follows two moms as they reconcile the kind of mothers they thought they would be with the kind of moms they actually are. All nine episodes aired on CBC last November and are currently available to stream on CBC’s website. Regrettably, NEWBORN MOMS is not available in the US. Vanessa Matsui appears as Cecelia in the ninth episode. Kris Siddiqi (delivery man in LOST GIRL episode 2.18 Fae-nted Love) is Paolo.
