Originally Aired: 11/08/19 – We review Doctor Sleep now in theatres. We also speak with actor Romaine Waite of Frankie Drake Mysteries. We also play Andrew’s interview with actor Precious Chong of Homewrecker.
We play Andrew’s sit down interview with actor and writer Precious Chong, recorded during the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. Precious co-wrote, produced and starred in the horror-comedy Homewrecker. The film played at Toronto After Dark 2019 as well as Fantasia and Fantasticfest earlier this year. Andrew and Precious talk about the film as well as her writing and acting style.
Our review of Doctor Sleep starring Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and Kyliegh Curran. Struggling with alcoholism, Dan Torrance remains traumatized by the sinister events that occurred at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child. His hope for a peaceful existence soon becomes shattered when he meets Abra, a teen who shares his extrasensory gift of the “shine.” Together, they form an unlikely alliance to battle the True Knot, a cult whose members try to feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal.
We talk with actor Romaine Waite. Romaine plays Bill Peters on the CBC’s Frankie Drake Mysteries. Romaine talks about his role on the show and more! Romaine Waite was born in Jamaica and raised in Canada. Romaine found his love for performing at an early age when he took drama at his high school. After a small stint in theatre, Romaine would make the transition to film and television with his first network appearance in MURDOCH MYSTERIES.
