It is no secret that Bomb Girls is one of my favourite shows EVER and I’m lucky enough to work with some of the cast. Brett Dier has recently completed his 4-episode arc as Gene Corbett (son of Meg Tilly and Peter Outerbridge’s Lorna and Bob Corbett). He plays a charming returning soldier and creates sparks with women at the factory – but he also has a bad case of PTSD. Brett gives an excellent performance. Click on photo below for a link to one if his episodes (he looks very cute in long johns!).
Brett is an extraordinarily talented young actor – and he is also extremely amusing. You can follow him on Twitter @brettdier to read his ‘nuggets of wisdom.’ Click below for a recent interview with Brett from The Nervous Breakdown.
Bomb Girls’ Ali Liebert (Betty McRae) has also been working on a spectacular web series/love cabaret show called The True Heroines.
The ‘core’ True Heroines are three triple-threat beauties with extensive experience in dance, singing and acting. They are: Fiona Vroom (Supernatural, Tower Prep), Jovanna Huguet (Package Deal, Mr.Young) and Paula Giroday (Once Upon a Time, Fringe) and artistic director/choreographer Joel Sturrock. The web series features an impressive cast that includes some of Vancouver’s best-known actors – including Ali Liebert (Bomb Girls), Neil Grayston (Warehouse 13, Eureka), Daniel Cudmore (Twilight Saga, X-Men), Gina Chiarelli, Zak Santiago, Leah Gibson (Arctic Air) and Brendan Penny (Motive). The series is written by Nicholas Carella and directed by Michelle Ouellet (both of Sociable Films).
The web series premiere, along with a spectacular live show will be at Vancouver’s Rio Theatre on Tuesday, March 12th. You can buy tickets here.

March promises to be a very exciting month with the premiere of Bates Motel on A&E. Production is being very secretive about what details can be released… but I can share an interview with Keegan Connor Tracy a.k.a. Miss Watson – Norman Bates’ teacher! Thank you Felix at Vancity Buzz!
