Emmanuelle Vaugier (The Morrigan) stars as Agatha Sayers, a novelist whose daughter is kidnapped, in the TV movie KILLER ENDING. The abduction is carried out in a way that imitates the plot of Agatha’s latest book (which has not yet been published) and she begins to suspect that her recently hired assistant might be involved. Written and directed by Christie Will Wolf, and filmed in Langley, B.C., KILLER ENDING will premiere on Lifetime in the US Saturday 30 June at 8pm, and in Canada on Superchannel Friday 20 July at 9:05pm.
The Fluffball Foundation (an orgainization that supports animal rescue, founded by Vaugier in 2009) recently posted this on Instagram: “Emmanuelle’s birthday [23 June] is coming up, and we’re hoping you’ll help make it extra special! Give her the best gift ever by donating to the 2019 Fluffball, which will once again benefit Forgotten Horses Rescue. Donate $10 or more and we’ll give you a surprise gift in return!

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. Continue reading →
Shauna MacDonald (Dean Peretti in O Kappa, My Kappa) will be Fräulein Stumpf in the dark comedy BUSINESS ETHICS, which is about a man (Larenz Tate) who sets out to run a Ponzi scheme. He is assisted in his efforts by Edwin Murk, a wealthy but crooked investment manager, and Veronica, his loyal but unsuspecting assistant who develops unrequited feelings for him. (Murk is played by Gil Bellows, who starred in the original short film.) Alyssa Veniece, (Riley, the hotel maid whose uniform was appropriated by Bo in Like Hell, Part 1) will play a character named Cellar. No word yet on a release date.
Lisa Berry (Serena in ArachnoFaebia) will be Candace Cranston in POWER RANGERS (the latest installment in that franchise) which follows five high school teens with unique superpowers who learn that their small town of Angel Grove (and the world) is on the verge of being obliterated by aliens. The five quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome personal issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it’s too late. It seems possible that Candace Cranston is in some way related to Billy Cranston (the original Blue Power Ranger). A trailer is available on YouTube. POWER RANGERS will be released in the US and Canada on 24 March 2017.
Vaugier tweeted this photo on 29 September, saying: “You know your 1st AD [Reed Makayev] had a good time shooting when he shows up like this for the wrap party #WashedAway”
Emmanuelle Vaugier (The Morrigan) will appear in two films coming out next year. She will be Lauren in the dark, supernatural thriller MASKS DON’T LIE, the story of Nora and her friend Daniela (Anna Hutchinson). The two women are invited to celebrate Carnival at a masked ball in Venice (Italy). Daniela wakes to find herself drugged and in a room filled with men who are celebrating something else entirely; and while searching for her friend, Nora follows someone she thinks she knows, and discovers that on a previous visit to Venice, she left a deadly secret behind.
Vaugier is also Gabrielle in WASHED AWAY, a TV movie about a recently widowed woman who, while on a business trip, spots her deceased husband alive and well and comes to realize that he has faked his death. Written by Roslyn Muir (who also wrote THE BIRDWATCHER) the film is set in San Francisco, and began production in Winnipeg last August.
