This Week, we hang with immortal mercenaries, try to buy a baby and talk about women’s rights. A little bit of everything, eh?
Don’t miss this Friday’s episode of Geek Hard as Andrew and Mr. Green bring you another show jam-packed with awesome! Joining the guys by phone is actor Laurence LeBoeuf! Laurence has starred in numerous film and television projects, including Turbo Kid, 19-2 and Transplant. She’ll be on to talk about her latest film, Catch and Release, which explores abortion rights, trauma and religious extremism through a sharp feminist lense. The film comes to virtual cinemas on July 10th and iTunes on July 14th. Here’s a quick bio on Laurence:
Laurence LeBoeuf inherited the acting gene from her parents, veteran Canadian actors Diane Lavallée and Marcel Leboeuf. Her first role was at age 11 in the series Virginie and she quickly became a darling of Quebec audiences and critics, accumulating numerous awards and accolades. Since then she has appeared in over 40 films and television programs and has had lead roles in several acclaimed series. Laurence was nominated for for a Gemini Award for her work in 15/Love, her first English-language project for U.S. audiences. The festival favourite Turbo Kid (2015) confirmed her as a presence in the international cinema scene.
