Wow. I can’t believe TIFF is over. That was the wildest time of my whole life. I slept 3 hours a night for the duration of the festival and I wouldn’t change that for anything! Good thing I have extensive experience staying up late. I already miss my fellow Rising Star homies. I’m so excited for when Evelyne is back filming Orphan Black so Jonathan and I can show her around town. Those dudes are the raddest.
I’m so honoured that Empire of Dirt received a special citation from the jury! I can’t wait until we open the film across Canada and everyone who missed our sold-out run at TIFF can finally catch it. I’m so inspired right now. There were so many incredible films at the festival. Next year I’m totally buying a pass.
As I type this, I happen to be in Newfoundland shooting an episode of Republic of Doyle. It’s also crazy busy, but I think everything feels more laid back out here. I’m angling to parlay this one-time guest star part into a recurring role next season so I can come back and hang out with the b’ys. I heart Nfld.
