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.
