‘Unhappy Happy’ at the Toronto Indie Film Festival

[Updated Sept 10 7:20pm] The screening time has changed to 9:30pm.

I don’t know if you know this but I act, sometimes. Like, seriously. Sure I act the fool often, but sometimes I pretend to be someone else and try to convince whoever is watching whatever I need to convince them of.

Whenever people find out that I’m an actress, they always ask, “would I have seen you in anything?” I usually answer no, because there aren’t that many people who watch reality TV or the W Network1 but then again, reality TV isn’t acting; it’s actually the opposite of acting. Or something.

Anyway, I am extremely proud to have been a part of this project and I’m also really happy for the team that it will premiere at the Toronto Indie Film Festival on September 12th! Full details can be found below the poster:

Unhappy Happy

Will I see you there?

No really, Come Date With Me!

On February 20th, a new show is going to premiere on the W Network. I’m beyond excited. It’s hard for me to write about it because the 300 cartwheels I’ve done, don’t feel like enough. The show is called, Come Date With Me and instead of try to write up a description for it, I’m going to get their words tell you:

Come Date With Me combines the cooking, criticizing and competition of Come Dine With Me Canada and adds a new twist—romance. Four eligible bachelors compete to win the heart of one woman – or vice versa—as they each take her out on fun, adventurous dates then cook for her in their own homes. The catch? These kitchen Casanovas have to cook for their fellow male suitors as well! Our bachelorette rates each date and dinner and the bachelor who captures her heart will share $1000 on the ultimate dream date.

It was a super fun week full of  a lot of a giggling girl1, four manly men, delicious food, some2 alcohol and more that… I may or may not remember at this time.

By now, a lot of you have already seen my episode and you already know how it ends. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, I hope you tune in. It’ll make me smile. You want me to smile, right? My episode first aired on February 9th at 1pm and has played again a few times since3, and it’s airing again TONIGHT at 8pm.

And if you have seen me in the show already, who do *you* think I should have picked?

  1. Not me. Okay, Maybe me. []

  3. There was a viewing party on Feb 12th! []
