INTERVIEW: Eric Hicks, Star of LOVE IN HARMONY VALLEY, Talks About His Journey As An Actor and Spiritual Practitioner

Eric, a Saskatchewan native, moved to Toronto to pursue his dream to become an actor– and you might have seen him in popular shows such as The Strain, Reign and Schitt’s Creek. His new movie, Love in Harmony Valley, premiered on the Superchannel this Fall. Learn more about his journey and projects below!

Hi Eric, thank you so much for answering our questions today! Tell us about yourself and what influenced you to pursue acting. When did you want to know you wanted to become an actor and what was that journey like for you to get you to where you are today?

You know what, there was this one moment as a kid that I decisively remember saying to myself, “I want to do that when I’m older.” I was featured background on a Jamie Foxx movie when I was around nine years old I think, and it was the one day we finished getting these baseball game scenes shot and as I was walking across the dirt roads to go back to holding, Jamie and his team were shooting a basic car stunt. The car is ripping away in the gravel and Jamie was hanging out of the window, and I guess maybe what I really wanted to do was stunts, haha, but yeah, I just loved that whole experience so much and knew it was something I really wanted to do one day. But it really wasn’t until I was 21 [years old] that I truly entertained the idea of the arts as a career choice.

Sandra Bullock Lesson #9

More time traveling with Sandra! This week we visit The Lake House.

To quote IMDB summary, “A lonely doctor who once occupied an unusual lakeside home begins exchanging love letters with its former resident, a frustrated architect. They must try to unravel the mystery behind their extraordinary romance before it’s too late.” Except they don’t unravel the mystery, being the mystery is TIME TRAVEL and no one seems interested in that.

Lessons:
1) Time travel breaks my head
2) If you’re postbox turns into a tiny TARDIS, you won’t even think twice about it
3) Look both ways before crossing the street.

I’m going to discuss spoilers, so you’ve been warned!

Sandra Bullock Lesson #7

This week we learn lessons from Hope Floats, or “How not to end a marriage”.

Birdee (almost as good as when Sandra was ‘Sidalee’) goes on a talk show, expecting a free make-over. But, in reality, her best friend reveals that she’s been having an affair with Birdee’s husband. Yay for talk shows! The rest of the film follows Birdee around as she tries to come to grips with her marriage ending and starting life over back in her home town with her daughter.

What did I learn?

1) Taxidermy is disturbing
2) Making Mae Whitman cry is a dickhead thing to do
3) Being talented and having no ambition is only ok in the South.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles but with Ben Affleck and Sandra Bullock. I must admit, I had negative views of this film going in. I HATE “Leave them at the altar chick flicks”.

This film pleasantly surprised me. There are spoilers, as the ending must be discussed to redeem this film.
