INTERVIEW: Romaine Waite In Hallmark’s CROSSWORD MYSTERIES

Actor Romaine Waite joined the cast of Hallmark’s Movies & Mysteries film series Crossword Mysteries: Proposing Murder and Crossword Mysteries: Abracadaver. Read below on what inspires Romaine and what he hopes to accomplish as an actor.

Hello, Romaine! Can you tell us a little about yourself? What inspired you to pursue a career in acting and what continues to motivate you?

I was born in Montego Bay Jamaica, and raised in Canada. I’m a simple guy, just trying to experience all the good that life has to offer. I enjoy motorcycles, traveling and one day I hope to open a small restaurant. 

It was my experience on an indie film, that really made me feel like acting was a career option. Prior to this my only experience with acting was in high school.

San Diego Comic Con 2016: Scenes Around The Con

San Diego Comic Con—aka, Nerd Christmas in the Summer— came and went. I attended for the entire weekend this year and snapped a handful of photos of cosplayers and all the cool things around the convention. There were way more that I missed, of course. The heat was brutal this year and I am too much of a wuss to walk in extreme heat. Fortunately, there were still tons of things to see and do. Check out the photo slideshow below! You can also view the photos on our Facebook page as well.
