We talk with actor Abigail Winter. Abigail can currently be seen as Jess on the new season of Mary Kills People. We talk about what’s been happening in season two, her music and more. Born in Vancouver, BC, Abigail Winter began acting at the age of six – her first role being Gretl in The Sound of Music (Royal City Musical Theatre). She continued on in various theatre productions such as The Music Man and Beauty and the Beast until joining the Stratford Festival company in 2007 where she spent six seasons. Other film and TV credits include The Collector, The Fog, Sanguine, Emma, Copper, Rookie Blue, Warehouse 13, Unless, V. Morgan Is Dead, Saving Hope, Between, and The Detail. Abigail is also thrilled to be releasing her first original EP, Chemistry, in the spring of 2018.
Our review of Netflix’s Altered Carbon starring Joel Kinnaman, James Purefoy and Martha Higareda. Synopsis: Based on the classic cyberpunk noir novel by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon is an intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized; human bodies are interchangeable; death is no longer permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned – on ice – for centuries until Laurens Bancroft, an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder … that of Bancroft himself.
We also speak with film critic and host of Pop Life, Richard Crouse. Richard will be joining us to talk about the 2018 Flashback Film Fest, coming to select Cineplex Cinemas in February. Richard chats about the lineup for this year’s fest as well as his adventures while interviewing celebs. The event is Canada’s only coast-to-coast festival, bringing a line-up of sci-fi, fantasy and fan favourites back to the big screen. This year, Cineplex Events and renowned film critic, Richard Crouse, curated a line-up of 15 of the most blood-pumping, thrill-inducing and heart-warming films in cinema that will screen in over 27 cities across the country from February 2-8, 2018.
