Hi guys! Something Undone seems like the kind of thriller that sticks with you. Can you tell our readers about the mini-series and the roles you both play in it?

Madison Walsh: I play Jo, a foley artist (the person who makes sound effects for films) who is cleaning out her late mother’s home while recording spooky sounds for her true crime podcast. Jo goes down a bit of a rabbit hole when she discovers clues hinting at a dark family secret.

Michael Musi: And I play Farid, Jo’s other half, both professionally and personally. Farid’s out in Newfoundland doing interviews for the podcast while Jo is at her mother’s home.

INTERVIEW: Sydney Meyer Stars in Netflix’s New Teen Drama, GRAND ARMY

Actor, Sydney Meyers, is known for her roles in shows such as Shadowhunters and The Expanse. Now, she stars in Netflix’s Grand Army, a show that represents and explores many social issues that teenagers are facing today. Season one of the show is now available on Netflix.

Tell us more about your new show on Netflix, Grand Army. What is the series about and what drew you to the project? Who is your character, Anna Delaney, and what role does she play in the story?

The series is a true to life look at five teens in Brooklyn and their lives in school and online as they struggle to find themselves and their voices in their community. I was working the casting sessions in Toronto as a reader and I was immediately drawn to the rawness and authenticity of the scripts. I was invested right away and knew that I wanted to be a part of the project. Anna is Joey’s best friend since childhood and Tim’s twin sister, she’s also the motherly figure of her group. She is put in the middle of a conflict that arises between Joey and the rest of her friend group and Anna is forced to pick a side and ultimately to deal with the consequences of having to do that.

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions, Gwenlyn and Karen! Tell us about your show, BARBELLE, and about the characters you play. What was the inspiration behind the show and Veronica and Alice?

We like to describe BARBELLE as the Gay Soap Opera of your dreams with good jokes, or if you prefer, a woke lesbian Spiceworld for 2019. The show is a short form digital series, and Season Two JUST started airing! You can watch it on Shaftesbury’s YouTube channel KINDAtv. The Series was inspired mostly by a drive to create a show that we (Karen Knox and Gwenlyn Cumyn) would have wanted to watch as teenage girls! There simply wasn’t representation for queer women that was hitting the mark in terms of quality TV shows. SO… We decided to make one!

INTERVIEW: Jessica Rose On the Vulnerability in Acting and Her Short Film, ‘Alison’

Jessica Rose is a creative powerhouse and you may recognize her from television shows such as Man Seeking Woman and Saving Hope. She has also written and starred in her own short film called Alison which explores the intimacy between a couple during one particular strange night. Read more below to find out what acting means to her and her upcoming projects.

Your short film, ‘Alison,’ is so simple yet conveys so much about a relationship in one single night. I love how the short started out a bit silly then the emotional roller coaster escalates. What was the inspiration for it and what did you hope to show people?

Thank you! I think relationships are a subject that have always fascinated me. There is a specific kind of intimacy you develop in long term relationships that I hadn’t seen on screen before, and a particular kind of work involved that isn’t often talked about. There is a vulnerability, sometimes a very dark side, that we share with our partners that no one else sees. I know many couples who appear to always be fighting or dealing with some sort of drama, but they remain extremely determined and committed to staying together. Love is complicated, and our need for intimacy and partnership is powerful. I’m fascinated by the equation behind it: what and how much we are willing to endure in order to keep a relationship going, and whether the rewards of companionship outweigh the challenges.

Sorry Robert Downey, Jr. but I’m pretty sure when the young un’s think of Sherlock Holmes, they will think of Benedict Cumberbatch.

BBC’s Sherlock brought Sherlock Holmes back into pop culture in a big bad way and it’s a flat-out amazing series. Even I— someone who will never understand the passionate Cumberbatch fandom love—enjoys watching this show. It’s smart and different while paying respects to the original work.
