    As a novice interviewer, I had the remarkable opportunity to interview the man who is responsible for bringing to life one of the most amazing shows on TV today–When Calls the Heart.  Of course, I speak of the talented, benevolent and humble Brian Bird. I was incredibly honored that he afforded me the opportunity yet again this year to ask […]

    Almost a year ago now, I learned of a fantastic musical film called High Strung, and because of my friendship with director Michael Damian, I have come in contact with some wonderful people. It just so happens that Karen Gronsky is one of those people, and while she is not a “celebrity” in the traditional sense, she is an amazing woman […]

    I cannot say this enough. Because of my devotion to the Hallmark network, I am regularly introduced to such a wide variety of exceptional actors that I may not notice otherwise. As a result, I research these actors and often discover their other works, and that is exactly how I happened upon Tasya Teles. From seeing and reviewing her work on Autumn […]

    This past summer, when I had time to investigate upcoming shows for this season, I happened upon a show that captured my attention–Time After Time. At that point, not much was written about it, but I discovered that one of the directors and executive producers was a man by the name of Marcos Siega. He quickly agreed to an interview […]

    During season three of When Calls the Heart, I often say I interviewed most of the supporting cast, and Andrea Brooks was one of those gracious individuals who agreed almost the moment I asked her. This season, when I asked her for a second interview, the girl was so busy that we only had the opportunity this past week to finally […]

    As one who takes great delectation in chatting with the young people in the entertainment business, I was ecstatic to see several new faces in When Calls the Heart this season. One of those young men, Spencer Drever, stood out prominently in episode one due to his somewhat profound storyline. I was delighted to talk with Spencer recently (and his parents) about […]

    A few months ago, I had the opportunity to chat with the talented, funny, and very down-to-earth Viv Leacock (read my first interview with him here). He mentioned When We Rise during that first interview, but I only knew of it minimally back then. Since his episode is airing this evening (March 3rd), I was pleased to have the opportunity to get a […]

    From the beginning of the Hallmark series When Calls the Heart, Florence Blakeley has provided humor in the form of a sort of town gossip who revels in sticking her nose in other people’s business and presenting commentary on the way in which everyone lives or should live his/her life. Although she does tend to meddle, her heart is always in the right […]

    Being the massive Jesse Hutch fan that I am, I first noticed Lilah Fitzgerald on the Hallmark film Harvest Moon. This past summer, Lilah happened to join twitter, and that gave me the opportunity to contact her for an interview. Upon researching her career, I realized that I had seen her during the first season of When Calls the Heart as well, […]

      In the past couple of years, as I have received a “pass” of sorts to observe and interact with the acting community, I have discovered that they are very integrated, which is a magnetic quality that often leads to a plethora of serendipitous meetings and connections. And for me, the Vancouver community has embraced me so fully that I am frequently […]
