Kevin Hart stars in this heart-warming, funny, and emotional true story about a widower taking on one of the toughest jobs in the world: fatherhood. The film follows Hart’s character Matt navigates the highs and lows of parenthood. From putting an infant child to sleep or dealing with family pressures, Matt is determined to beat the odds to become the best father he can be.

Teneisha says, “This story of Fatherhood pierced right through my heart from the moment I first read the script in the Miami airport – I burst out crying within the first 10 pages. Getting to know the real Matt Logelin who the movie is based on, and seeing how far he and Maddy have come – this experience will stay with me forever. To have the opportunity to contribute to this story and to leave my influence on this project is so meaningful.” 

In other memorable roles, Teneisha plays the female lead Monique Huffman in an episode of the anthology docuseries Real Detective, based on a true story along with Louis Ferreira and Sergio di Zio.“It was an exceptional experience to play the complex Monique Huffman in this intense drama. This individual had so many layers to her amidst the tragedy of the episode, and there was the added personal responsibility of doing justice to portraying this real person. It was an honor and a privilege to be able to give a performance that I hope accurately portrayed her.” Adds Teneisha.

She also has a recurring role on Future Man (as Kenneth) with Seth Rogen (as Susan) on the Sony/Hulu TV series on Season 3.  Other roles include the large supporting role in the short film Red Wine (Telefilm Canada selection for Cannes 2019,) Street Legal (Yulica Pardi in the CBC reboot.)

Teneisha had an affinity for performing from a very young age and was truly hooked after performing in her first school play at 8 years old. At 10, she handed her parents the yellow pages and asked them to find her an agent. Dedicated to her craft Teneisha trained with the late and great Jacqueline McClintock in the Meisner Technique for close to a decade in addition to a number of various workshops and master classes. 

She is a graduate of the renowned Black Theatre Workshop’s Artist Mentorship Program, and as a young adult attended the Dynamic Theatre Factory. Teneisha has performed in several theatrical productions, playing Bess in The Last Wife (Imago Theatre,) Claire in The Breakfast Club (d2productions,) and the Interviewer in The Shadow Box (d2productions,) among others.

Camille Mitchell in Hallmark’s new Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: till Death Do Us Part

2021 Leo Award Nominee Camille Mitchell is Candace Cameron Bure’s new Mother-in-Law in Hallmark’s Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Til Death Do Us Part premiering on June 13, 2021 on Hallmark Movie & Mysteries 

And catch Camille on Hallmark’s Ships In The Night: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery on Sunday June 20th

Award-winning actress Camille Mitchell is thrilled to join the Aurora Teagarden Family playing Lena Miller, Mother of the Groom to co-star Niall Matter (Eureka). As Nick’s mother, she joins Candace Cameron Bure (Full House) who returns as crime-buff and bride-to-be in Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Til Death Do Us Part, the latest installment in the hit mystery franchise premiering Sunday, June 13 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries along with returning co-star Marilu Henner (Taxi) and Lexa Doig (Andromeda) in the US.

“What a pleasure to work with this cast and production team that feels like such a family. During Covid so many weddings have been postponed or shrunk to a party of 10 so it was a real joy to be on set at the Hallmark wedding of my TV “son” in such fabulous company – and just enjoy the celebration!,” beamed Mitchell.

Just days before Aurora’s wedding, a body is discovered, and she fears her father may be a suspect. She and Nick race to solve the cold case before they walk down the aisle. 

Murder mystery fans can also catch Camille in Ships In the Night: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery  on Sunday June 20th on the Hallmark Channel in her 2021 Leo Award nominated performance as Lila Winchester opposite Jesse Metcalfe (Desperate Housewives).  When Lila Winchester’s art gallery is robbed and leads to the death of the contemptible gallery manager, a former Boston detective teams up with a local doctor–and old flame– to catch the killer. 

Camille has been a working actress since she was 19. She grew up surrounded by the entertainment industry. Her father was Hollywood star Cameron Mitchell (My Favourite Year, High Chaparral, How to Marry A Millionaire) so she knows what the business is all about.  And nothing seems to slow her down – not even the pandemic. This past year alone she has revelled in portraying a range of roles from the murder suspect to the powerful fairy to the loyal housekeeper to the proud mother-in-law in Ships In The Night: A Martha’s Vineyard  Mystery, Supernatural Academy, A Glenbroke Christmas and Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Til Death Us Do Part. Not even a dislocated kneecap suffered mid-shoot during Aurora Teagarden during an at-home workout stopped her from filming even though she had to be briefly wheeled down the aisle on a dolly (with her crutches hidden from view) so the show could go on!

While many actresses leave their profession once they are a ‘certain age’, that hasn’t stopped Camille who continues to work consistently embracing her age in the tradition of other working veteran actresses. She also embraced a positive attitude during the Covid shut down to use this time to explore her culinary skills exploring new recipes and eating healthy. Her last trip to Italy she took lessons from celebrated chefs, which has motivated her family’s homemade pasta events. Her brother Cameron Mitchell Jr (Hollywoodland), son Charlie-Joe Mitchell (Altered Carbon); niece Jinjara Mitchell (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) and nephew Jordan Connor (Riverdale) are all in the business. 

Earlier this year Camille took on the intriguing role of her Leo Award nominated role as Lila in Ships in the Night: A Martha’s Vineyard Mystery airing on the Hallmark Channel alongside Jesse Metcalfe and Sarah Lind. As part of the Hallmark 2020 Christmas movie line up, Camille plays Martha Munro in A Glenbrooke Christmasalongside Amber Reeser and Antonio Cupo. 

Camille joins her talented actor friend Jerry Trimble (Chesapeake Shores, iZombie) in the short film The Architect’s Dream directed by Francesco Papetti which will hit the festival season once it opens up. 

You can also catch Camille in her recurring role as Rosie on Netflix’s dramedy, The Healing Powers of Dude. When an 11-year-old boy with social anxiety disorder must start middle school, he finds strength in a lovable comfort mutt named Dude. As a dog-owner all her life, Camille adopted Ginger from the downtown Los  Angeles Pound and is no stranger to the healing powers of canines. 

Camille was also nominated for 2019 and 2018 Leo Awards for Best Guest Performance in a Dramatic Series on Netflix’s hit series Van Helsing with Kelly Overton and for her role as Esperanza on ABC’s Somewhere Between with Paula Patton. Camille also joined Katherine McNamara who stars as Mia Smoak, in the Arrow Spin Off Pilot Green Arrow and the Canaries.

Camille has garnered extraordinary acclaim for her versatility onstage and onscreen including her Leo Award-nominated role portraying tough-talking Sheriff Nancy Adams on the CW’s hit television show Smallville for five seasons. A leading lady at the Stratford and Shaw festivals, where she was hailed her as “a gift to the theatre” by the London Times, Camille won Canada’s Jessie Award for her portrayal of Ariel in Shakespeare’s The Tempest and was also nominated for Best Actress Awards for Blanche in A Streetcar Named Desire, opposite Kim Coates (star of Sons of Anarchy, Bad Blood), Madame Tourvel in Les Liaisons Dangereuses, and Elizabeth in The Crucible.

Feature film ‘Thunderbird’

The feature film Thunderbird deals with racial tensions as it takes a deep dark descent into the desperation of searching for a missing family member set against the rugged beauty and danger of the Pacific Northwest. 

Starring Colten Wilke, Natalie Brown, Julain Black Antelope, Aaron Douglas, and William Belleau Thunderbird is available on Amazon Prime Video in the US and UK on June 4, 2021 and on Vimeo On Demand in Canada

Ocean Twilight Films is pleased to announce that their feature film Thunderbird will be available on Amazon Prime Video on June 4 , 2021. Thunderbird stars Colten Wilke in his first starring role, Natalie Brown (Sophie, Clarice, The Strain, Dark Matter), Julian Black Antelope (Tribal, The Secret History of – The Wild West, Into the West), Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica, Van Helsing, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency) and William Belleau (Blackway, Killers of the Flower Moon, Van Helsing). Written, directed, and edited by Nicholas Treeshin (Tricked, Worst to First, Border Security) is directing his first feature film. Producers Michael Morrison, Colten Wilke, Gabrielle Adelman, and Ben Plamondon bring this story about the fear of the unknown, the pain of guilt, and confronting the darkest parts of our past. The Coast Salish legend of the Thunderbird is an integral part of the story that also deals with racial tensions in a small fishing town on the Pacific Northwest and the search for a missing family member. Constructed against the rugged beauty and danger of this Pacific Northwest, this film takes a deep and dark descent into the desperation of the search. 

Will Brook (Colten Wilke) is overcome with guilt when he finds out that his sister has gone missing. Haunted by a recurring nightmare, he leaves the fishing boat he calls home and heads to town to find her.  But, his family’s murky history with the First Nations locals puts his life in jeopardy. Newly reinstated detective Ivy Seymour (Natalie Brown) is sent from the city to work on a homicide case as the number of missing women in the area is growing at an alarming rate.  When the body turns out to be Sarah’s roommate, Ivy and Will’s paths cross and together they follow clues to catch a killer.  Desperate to find Sarah before it’s too late, Will must confront his family’s troubled past and face his demons … no matter how real they may seem.

Thunderbird is based on a story that Colten Wilke first penned when fishing on the commercial fishing boat Ocean Twilight. Producers are grateful for the collaboration and partnership from the communities that contributed to filming a number of the locations used in Thunderbird. All of the halibut fishing in the opening scene is real and was done from the long-line fishing vessel Ocean Twilight. The scenes of William with Chief George (Julian Black Antelope) were all shot in a Kwakiutl big house in Port Hardy, British Columbia, and the extras in attendance were all active members of the local First Nations community. The Hamatsa masks worn by the dancers in the big house are extremely sacred family masks considered hereditary property and are believed to transform the wearers once they are donned. 

Director Nicolas Treeshin’s Statement: Thunderbird is a story about the search for a missing girl, but beneath the surface, it’s more importantly about the fear of the unknown, the pain of guilt, and confronting the darkest parts of our past. The main character Will Brook is haunted by the circumstances surrounding his parents’ death and to move forward emotionally he must face his demons…figuratively and literally. The film also deals with racial tensions in a small fishing town on the Pacific Northwest, and because the Coast Salish legend of the Thunderbird was so integral to our story, it was of utmost importance for us to represent the culture of the First Nations peoples accurately. Latash-Maurice Nahanee, an Elder from the Squamish Nation, and Chief David Knox (great-grandson to world-renowned artist Mungo Martin) from the Kwakiutl First Nations were our cultural guides during production. Our team strived to produce a film that has a lasting impact on its audience. Every frame of Thunderbird was constructed to enhance Will’s emotional journey as he searches for his sister. Thunderbird is ultimately about facing your fears…even when they’re capable of eating you whole. 

The cast, director and producers are available for interviews, photos and information.

Thomas Nicholson Begin Recurring Roles in The CW’s TV Series

Canadian/Danish actor Thomas Nicholson is heading into a career highlight summer with recurring roles in The CW’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Freeform’s Motherland: Fort Salem 

Actor Thomas Nicholson has booked dream roles on two popular TV series airing in 2021. On season six of The CW’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, he plays a younger version of a real-life legendary musician who helps the lead cast as they embark on a new quest in the upcoming season. His first episode airs on May 2nd, 2021.

Thomas also appears in a recurring role on Freeform’s Motherland: Fort Salem, when its new season airs this summer. While we can’t say much about his roles without spoilers, each of them is pivotal to the two TV series this season.

You may recognize Thomas from his work on multiple television shows, notably a recurring role on the hit Netflix series The Haunting of Bly Manor. In the series’ final twist, his character is revealed to be an older version of lead Miles Wingrave (Benjamin Evan Ainsworth’s character). 

He has also had roles in Netflix’s Virgin River, in AMC’s The Terror, Fox’s The X-Files, Bobby Singer’s son on The CW’s Supernatural, The History Channel’s Project Blue Book, and The 100. Thomas has also played leading roles in feature films, including Jake in Project: Eugenics and Luke in Writing Kim.

Taking on the role as Remy Johnson on USA Network’s Damnation was a particular highpoint for Thomas. He is also very proud to be playing the male lead in an upcoming Harold Greenberg short film called The Day We Left, based on the true story of a young Muslim couple that managed to escape Bosnia in the early days of The Bosnian War.

An ardent supporter of independent film, Thomas co-produced and stars in the award-winning short films Fatal Rhapsody and Dog Bite written by his partner, Gemma Holdway. Fatal Rhapsody has won the Audience Choice Award at Harrogate Film Festival (UK) and Award of Commendation at Canada Shorts Film Festival. Dog Bite received the Award of Excellence at Canada Shorts Film Festival and Best Actress to Jennifer Spence at Yes! Let’s Make a Movie Film Festival as well as nominations for Best Drama at Harrogate Film Festival and Best Overall Sound at the Leo Awards. In the Crazy8s film competition, Thomas has a lead role in the film Itsy Bitsy Spider that will be screening at the Wicked Queer film festival in Boston and the Short Circuit Pacific Rim Film Festival in Victoria, BC this spring. 

Thomas has kept busy since he made the decision to pursue acting professionally after completing the one-year intensive program at William B. Davis Centre at VanArts in Vancouver after he moved from Denmark. He was a journalist in Denmark but it was his mother’s horrible diagnosis with early-onset Alzheimer’s that gave Thomas the courage to throw caution to the wind and inspired him to pursue acting full time. In addition to his full-time acting course, Thomas continues to take part-time classes with many teachers across Vancouver. He is currently taking weekly scene study classes with Benjamin Ratner at Haven Studio and has a role in Ratner’s upcoming digital series Trigger Me

Thomas grew up bilingual (Danish-English) in Randers, Denmark to a Danish mother and an English father. He speaks three other languages with a strong ear for accents that have helped him book Canadian, American, English, Danish, Norwegian and Bosnian characters in front of the camera. In Denmark, he won a prestigious journalism award, the Kravling, and played bass in a post-grunge rock band called Cave. 

Thomas currently resides in Vancouver, BC.

He believes that you need to live for others to grow as a well-rounded person in all aspects of your life. “If you hang on to your dream too tight you will strangle it. You will eventually be filled with bitterness and comparison, and auditions will become your everything. “Absolutely work hard, but don’t let show biz become your only reason for living,” adds Jesse. When asked what his best role has been to date? “My best role is that of husband and father. I believe that giving your life to others is one of the greatest gifts you can strive for.”
