We talk with the voice that fans of Killjoys (on Space and Syfy) have become quite accustomed to: Tamsen McDonough (aka Lucy, the AI spaceship). Tamsen chats with us about her on-camera appearance on last Friday’s episode as well as what’s upcoming for our favourite reclamation agents in the latter half of the season. Actor Tamsen McDonough continues her series regular role in season two of the hit sci-fi adventure series KILLJOYS, currently airing on Space (Canada) and SyFy (United States). Tamsen was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and began her formal acting training at Simon Fraser University (SFU). Her love for acting started at a very early age when she played an orphan in her grade three production of Oliver Twist. From there, her acting bug fed on student films as well as shorts and indie projects.

Our review of Pete’s Dragon starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford and Oakes Fegley. Synopsis: Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford), a woodcarver, delights local children with stories of a mysterious dragon that lives deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. His daughter Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) believes these are just tall tales, until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley), a 10-year-old orphan who says he lives in the woods with a giant, friendly dragon. With help from a young girl named Natalie (Oona Laurence), Grace sets out to investigate if this fantastic claim can be true.

We also talk with James Armstrong one of the organizers of Fan Expo Canada, happening September 1st to 4th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. He fills us in on all the great guests and events that will be taking place this upcoming Labour Day weekend.

It was a great show!
