TV eh B Cs podcast – Cliff diving with Benjamin Ayres

tvehpodcast

Benjamin Ayres is a leading performer in the film and television industry, well known for slipping seamlessly between genres. After two seasons as a series regular on the CTV hit series DAN FOR MAYOR, Ayres nabbed the role of Dr. Zachary Miller in the highly acclaimed CTV original series SAVING HOPE. He also plays Eric Blake on HBO Canada’s Gemini Award-winning series LESS THAN KIND, for which he received a Canadian Screen Award nomination. He also played the chain-smoking sex addict with a morbid death obsession in jPod.

In addition to many film and theatre performances he’s run the gamut of Canadian television over the past five years, including appearances on Rookie Blue, Seed, Bitten, Working the Engels, Lost Girl, InSecurity, Flashpoint, The Vampire Diaries, Psych and the upcoming Schitt’s Creek.

And maybe we talk a little bit about bourbon, tequila and the symbolism of carrying a sick rat through the goalposts of life during a Dave Gilmour guitar solo.

TV eh B Cs podcast – Peter Keleghan sounds off on the Canadian TV industry

tvehpodcast

Peter Keleghan got his start at Toronto’s famed Second City comedy training centre and was an active stage performer until moving on to television, where he co-wrote and co-starred in The Comedy Mill from 1986-91. He then moved to Los Angeles and appeared on Cheers, Murphy Brown and Seinfeld and in a recurring but brief role on the daytime soap, General Hospital.

Keleghan returned to Canada and in 1991 he joined Steve SMITH on The Red Green Show as Ranger Gord. He was a heartless film tyrant in Rick MERCER’s Made in Canada and the outwardly affable and hopeless dullard Jim Walcott in Ken Finkleman’s The Newsroom.

The next decade saw Peter Keleghan earn major parts in feature films, most notably Niagara Motel. He also appeared in, among other movies, Ginger Snaps, Coopers’ Camera, Eating Buccaneers and GravyTrain. He currently appears in film comedy Big News from Grand Rock.

He’s been in numerous TV series, including Slings and Arrows, Billable Hours, Murdoch Mysteries, and Saving Hope, and won the 2011 Gemini Award for best actor in a leading comedic role for his part in 18 to Life.
