Lisa Berry (Serena in “ArachnoFaebia“) will be Desiree Holt in THE SISTERHOOD, a made-for-TV film that stars Claire Coffee as Ashley Shields, a woman who has gone through a rough year in which her mother died, her marriage fell apart, and she was passed over for a promotion at work. When her sister Jasmine (Siobhan Murphy) brings her to a woman’s group called “The Sisterhood” led by the charismatic and enigmatic Desiree, she is intrigued. The group gives Ashley everything it promises. She gets a raise in pay, her divorce is resolved in her favour, and she begins to feel fulfilled and happy. But as Ashley learns more about The Sisterhood and is forced to participate in its questionable activities, she realizes she must get out, no matter what the cost. THE SISTERHOOD completed production in Montreal in November. No release date has been announced. Continue reading →
Allison Dawn Doiron (Amanda the Kitsune) was Elaine Henshaw, a member of a gang of thieves, in episode 8.14 of MURDOCH MYSTERIES (the one where Emily finally kisses Lillian). The title of the episode (Toronto’s Girl Problem) may have been taken from that of a book: Toronto’s Girl Problem: The Perils and Pleasures of the City, 1880-1930 (Studies in Gender and History) by Carolyn Strange, published in 1995, that discussed the impact of the industrial revolution on women.
Linzee Barclay (the handmaiden on the train in LOST GIRL season 4) has appeared in three episodes of the CW show REIGN as a prostitute maned Sharlene, and Rachel Skarsten will soon join the show’s cast as the young Queen Elizabeth I.

At the very end of an interview with Ward and Al on SiriusXM radio in Toronto, Zoie Palmer mentioned that she and Paul Amos are talking about doing theatre. Amos then tweeted that others involved in the project are Kris Holden-Ried and Greg Bryk. (In an August 2013 post, this blog reported that Amos would direct Palmer, Bryk, and Holden-Reid in the Harold Pinter play BETRAYAL in the Spring of 2014, but that production never materialized.)
Vanessa Matsui (Cassie the Oracle) and Kathleen Munroe will star in the webseries GHOST BFF, which will be a comedy about depression that follows two girls, one alive and one dead, across space and time as they struggle to find themselves and to right past wrongs. Munroe also has the recurring role of Rachel Braidwood in the ABC series RESURRECTION.
From the GHOST BFF TRAILER:
“This is a funny story. I killed myself and I”m in purgatory and I regret it. No, I swear, this is a funny story. I used to have a puppy and a life that was fine and my best friend Amy was just incredible. But she misses me now and she’s getting married to fix how bad she feels and I can’t move on because I’ve left something unfinished.”

LOST GIRL – Season 2 Episode 15 – SPOILERS
Bo’s feast-of-the-week was Tammy Gillis who, among many other TV appearances, was in one episode of THE L WORD and one episode of BATTLESTAR. The mercenary sisters sucking the youth from unwitting humans were played by Genelle Williams (Leena on WAREHOUSE 13) and Lyndie Greenwood (Sonya on the CW’s NIKITA).
Nate’s budding music career is almost devoured by The Morrigan just because of his association with Kenzie, who prevents this by promising said Morrigan an unspecified future favour. Not being able to tell any other humans about The Fae is going make it difficult for Kenzi (Ksenia Solo) to have long-term human relationships.
OBSERVATION: SyFy shoots all its shows north of the Canadian border. Their location of choice used to be British Colombia (EUREKA, SANCTUARY), but now they do everything in the Toronto area, including ALPHAS, WAREHOUSE 13, and this fall’s new addition, DEFIANCE.
And all of those shows have at least one Canadian star: Joanne Kelly in WAREHOUSE 13, Mia Kirshner in DEFIANCE, and Laura Mennell in ALPHAS. EUREKA had Erica Cerra and Neil Grayston. SANCTUARY had Robin Dunne.
