Christine Horne – ENTANGLED

Forced to care for her catatonic lover Malcolm after a secret quantum experiment goes awry, Erin is determined to uncover the cause of his condition — even at the risk of her own life.
Christine Horne (BEST NEWFOUND THINGS OF 2014 Number 2) stars as Erin in a nicely understated science fiction story written and directed by ORPHAN BLACK writer and story editor Tony Elliott. Without giving too much away, there is a scene near the end of the film that makes Horne’s performance unforgettable.
UPDATE: 17 September 2014 –Tammy Gillis will appear in episode #5 of Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce, titled “Leave Childishness to the Children”. The exact air date of the episode is still unclear because of the holidays.
An angry Kenya Rosewater (Mia Kirshner) returns to DEFIANCE.
Christine Horne tweeted this selfie on 30 July. She has appeared in all of Jeremy LaLonde’s feature films.
Mia Kirshner (LOST GIRL’s Clio) has returned to DEFIANCE. The episode in which Kenya Rosewater returned offered no explanation of her apparent resurrection. This blog offered a couple of suggestions as to how Kenya might have avoided death in a previous post titled Defiance No Longer a Matriarchy. Meanwhile Doc Yewll is intentionally allowing herself to hallucinate her ex-wife, and Irisa has recruited a bunch of folks to help her achieve something called Arkrise. Kirshner’s return to DEFIANCE makes it less likely that her character Clio will return to LOST GIRL.
Christine Horne (Leader of the Una Mens) will be Vicky in THE CAPTIVE, a thriller written and directed by Atom Agoyan, to be released in Canada on 5 September. It’s about a man (played by Ryan Reynolds), who believes his daughter is still alive eight years after she was kidnapped and decides to search for her.

Two new Season 5 episode titles have turned up on IMDB. Episode 5.4 will be titled When God Opens A Window…. This seems to refer to a line spoken by Maria in THE SOUND OF MUSIC: “When the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window”. Episode 5.8 will be called End of Faes, and what leaps to mind is the 1999 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie END OF DAYS, in which Satan comes to New York City looking for a wife, but it might also refer to an episode of TORCHWOOD with the same title, in which in which Jack and Tosh go back to 1941 for a while.
THE TIMEKEEPER, a short film starring Tammy Gillis (Marissa in Table for Fae) will have its first screening at the Montreal World Film Festival (21 August-1 September).

Gillis will also be Kath in one episode of the TV series GIRLFRIENDS GUIDE TO DIVORCE, which premieres 2 December on Bravo.

Ali Liebert (Crystal) has joined the cast of STRANGE EMPIRE, a dark western recently picked up by CBC for the fall.

THE TIMEKEEPER, with Tammy Gillis, will be screened at the Edmonton International Film Festival (Sept 25 – Oct 4). The short film, directed by Scott Weber (who also directed the 2005 feature DESOLATION SOUND) is about a watchmaker who “pawns time from people who waste it”.
