Interview with Arctic Air’s Stephen Lobo
Most people are familiar with the saying, “Better late than never.” For actor Stephen Lobo, that old adage is particularly meaningful when it comes to his professional life. “I got into it [acting] late,” he recalls. “I started theatre school when I was 27 and graduated when I was 30. I had dabbled in it maybe a couple of years before that and thought, ‘Okay, this is really something I want to do for a living. I need to develop my [acting] chops, though, so I should probably go to theatre school.’ Read more.

Helping Hand: Interview with Arctic Air’s Adam Beach
“A friend of mine gave me a copy of the first Arctic Air script after hearing that they [the show’s producers] were casting a character that was similar to who I am,” recalls Beach. “I read the script, liked it, and then the producers called me. I had a meeting with them and agreed to come on board. So that’s how I originally became involved with the show.” Read more.
