Whoa! I got a phone call from my lady-friend earlier this morning asking if I happened to stumble upon The Coast’s (Halifax’s Weekly Newspaper) Best-Of Awards. Turns out I’ve been named 1st Runner-Up for Halifax’s favourite Film/Television Actor by the readers of The Coast!
Who’s number one? It appears that Halifax has a certain affection for John Dunsworth (Mr. Lahey from THE TRAILER PARK BOYS, and most recently Dave Teagues on HAVEN), winning his third title in four years. I also happen to have an affection and admiration for the man, so I am perfectly content and honored with my runner-up position.
Also in the winner’s circle is three films I’ve worked on: the Best Film award went to HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN, while the 1st runner-up went to ROLLER TOWN, and 2nd runner-up was THE CORRIDOR (the only one of the three that is actually finished).
I was completely taken aback by this. Honestly. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me, and to The Coast for hosting such a wonderful and legitimate forum of celebrating the many varied and talented folks who live in (or are FROM!) Halifax.
Check out the full list of awesome folks over @ TheCoast.ca.
