“It’s not every day as an actor you’re involved in that collaborative part of it, but since I’ve known Tassie over 10 years, she was really game to do that stuff. Collaborating with the hair and makeup team was so great and they are the creme de la creme. The attention to detail was, for me as an artist, the most exciting part because when you’re working with that kind of team that is so talented, it really helps me with my work. It makes everything so much easier when the clothes feel right, the hair is right and you don’t have to do as much. That always gets me so excited.” Continue reading.

“For me, as a woman, I am drawn to stories that have female characters at the heart of the story and all of my projects do. That’s personally what I’m most interested in and want to work on. For the character of Mary, I did want to write a really complex character who is ultimately compassionate, but she also makes really questionable decisions that we don’t always understand. I think it’s important to show female characters in a way that is not straightforward and we don’t always have to like them. The more representations of women, and everything that comes with being a woman, that we can put out there, the more helpful that is for us.” Continue reading.

It says a lot about the political dark times we are living through that one of the distractions I’ve glommed on to for relief is the taut new Canadian drama Mary Kills People.

Midway through a six-episode series on Global, and also airing on the Lifetime channel, Mary Kills People, starring Caroline Dhavernas as Dr. Mary Harris, tackles the difficult issue of doctor-assisted death in the most un-Canadian way possible: full on melodrama with black humour; an unflinching flawed heroine who is also an overworked single mother; troublesome teenage girls; handsome risky men; drugs, sex and danger at every turn.

“It really was a joy to create this character with them. I’ve known all of [the creative team] off and on in different capacities over the years. I’m proud to be part of it to be perfectly honest. As a husband and father of two sons and a young girl, to see this collection of women create such a dynamic and strong story, and to have the opportunity to tell that story, it was great to do my little part.” Continue reading.

“Des is absolutely a grounded realist, and as far as he’s concerned, that would probably mean that he’s an atheist or an agnostic. It’s clinical, it’s based in science. There’s compassion, but once there’s a dead body, it’s a dead body. That’s not being unfeeling toward the client. Religion is an important point to raise because we’re talking about a show in which some of the people asking for this [assistance] will be deeply religious, and you have to respect that.” Continue reading.
