Veronika London

 Veronika London brings her talents to The CW TV series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in the role of Tiffaney Harper and just wrapped shooting her role as Donatella in the feature film The Next Chapter

Veronika is featured as Top 100 – Hot and Fit – in the current issue of Inside Fitness on stands now.

Actress Veronika London is keeping busy on both the small and big screen. In The CW’s TV series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow she is introduced in the role of bright and bubbly Tiffaney Harper this February. Just wrapped in the feature film The Next Chapter, Veronika plays a strong and dominating character in the role of Donatella who is the manager of a bikers’ bar now in post-production. Check her out on magazine stands now featured as Top 100 Hot and Fit – in the current issue of Inside Fitness

It is tempting to compare actress Veronika London to other contemporary bombshells. After all, Maxim magazine boldly christened her as a Canadian sex symbol in a sultry photo spread that set hearts and imagination ablaze. But the Toronto raised beauty is charting a course of her own.

London’s performance as the title character in Nadeem Soumah’s gritty feature film Searching for Angels opposite Vivica A. Fox (Kill Bill, Independence Day) clearly demonstrated she had acting chops and wasn’t afraid to use them. London plays an amnesiac heroin addict who is discovered beaten in the street with no memory of her past. Fearlessly, London shred the trapping that made her a sex symbol and created a riveting gritty portrait of a young woman at serious risk. The result is a performance that is spellbinding in its power and truth. Following the success of the film London’s career blossomed onto the small screen appearing in SHOWTIMES’s Body Language and HBO’s Lingerie. Most recently London appeared in The CW “iZombie, FOX’s Lucifer and in the gritty feature film Dragged Across Concrete which stars Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughan which premiered at the Venice Film Festival in Italy. In the short dark comedy film The Elusive Man Veronika was the leader of the mob. She found the role refreshing and challenging as all her dialogue was in Spanish. This short film went on to win several awards at the LA Film Festival.

Along with acting, London has worked as a host for Toro TV’s Damage Control and has been featured internationally in magazines such as MAXIM UK/USA/CANADA, FLARE, UMM and recently in Inside Fitness Magazine making the top 100 list. 

Veronika roots are in Toronto where she studied acting and was in demand as a TV host. She now splits her time between Vancouver and Los Angeles as she pursues more opportunities in the entertainment business.

Veronika is available for interviews and photographs upon request.

Therés Amee

Fit curve model Therés Amee breaks down body barriers in the fashion industry and scouts for new talent alongside Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha

The progressive model and activist has a leading role teaching young girls about healthy body image 

For immediate release – Vancouver, BC: What is a fit curve model? British Columbia born model & body image activist, Therés Amee decided to recognize herself, when the fashion industry would not – and the fit curve term was born. 

Therés Amee had no intention of becoming a model. Growing up an athlete, sport and endurance were ingrained in her lifestyle, since she started gymnastics at the age of three. From there, Therés competed in everything from swimming, to soccer, to track and field. She was pursuing acting when she was first scouted at a talent convention. The casting director asked her if she has ever thought about modeling. Therés’ quick response was ‘no,’ as she knew she did not have the traditional slim figure of most models. 

After the scoutings continued, Therés decided to give it a shot and sign with her first modeling agency. The agency told her to lose weight – and even worse – to lose her muscle mass. They also advised Therés to stop running, as her cardio workouts built her quad muscles, making her legs look ‘unattractive’ on the runway. With growing frustration and depression, Therés decided to push through. 

Therés has faced every challenge in the competitive world of modeling along the way but with determination to achieve her success as a sought-after fit curve model, she is opening doors and passing on her body-positive message to young women. After not being accepted as a model at Vancouver Fashion Week, the director noticed her talent and asked her to host the entire weeklong show in a role she had for five successful seasons. During this time, Therés advanced to Toronto, where she worked with IMG during Toronto Fashion Week.

Her next east coast move was to New York City, the mecca of the fashion world. She attended the summer session at Esper Studio, studying acting with William Esper. While in New York, an agency became interested in Therés and offered to represent her. The contract and work Visa never became finalized however, as two months after the meeting, the agency decided to drop Therés due to “not enough clients wanting her look”.

Therés Amee retaliated on social media by posting a photo of herself leaned over, showing her stomach curve. She received great support for her outspoken body image advocacy and made it her goal to embrace her build, and only work with agents and designers who appreciated her body image.

Therés currently works with and teaches young girls about healthy body image through the @beauyoutiful organization. Founded by Taylor Hui, the beayoutiful foundation runs 6-8 week classes focusing on confidence, media literacy, healthy lifestyles, and positive outlook. The foundation also hosts an annual conference called ‘Inspired by HER,’ where girls ages 8-14 come from all over metro-Vancouver to join a full day of wellness workshops. 

In September 2018, Therés decided to return to New York, after she was accepted to work with Canadian supermodel, Coco Rocha. Coco had just started her modeling camps, and Therés was thrilled to be apart of her 6thcycle. She was shocked at the diversity of models Coco took on. From plus size to straight size, to models with disabilities, Coco’s camps were filled with beautiful girls from all around the world, simply coming together to enhance their abilities and knowledge of the fashion industry.

Coco encouraged Therés to stay healthy and fit and to keep pursuing her modeling career. After the camp, Therés attended New York fashion week SS and FW 2019 seasons. She met with numerous designers and agents who, to her shock, were interested in having Therés walk in their shows, and be a part of their modeling rosters. 

The fashion world had finally advanced, embracing even the un-classifiable middle model, which Therés now happily maintains. Currently, Therés works with Coco Rocha’s model camp as a model scout for upcoming new models in need of the incredible education and experience she gained from training with Coco.

Most recently, Therés Amee produced and modeled in two fashion films this past year, ‘Sa Lune,’ and ‘Rebel with a Claus’. From these films, she graced the cover of Beautymute’s 100th edition, along with a six-page spread and back cover highlight.

Therés Amee is also happily signed with Vancouver based agency, Family Management. After her first interview, Therés shyly asked her new agent, “Would you recommend me losing weight? Or adjusting my diet and exercise routine?” Her agent smiled, and said, “No girl! Just keep being you! Healthy you!”

In two short weeks, Therés Amee will return to New York for fashion week. She is excited to witness change on the runway and future change to come.

Therés Amee is available for interviews and photos upon request.

World Premiere of Eddy’s Kingdom

Artaban Productions is pleased to announce the world premiere of the documentary Eddy’s Kingdom about Canada’s first terriorist, at the Victoria Film Festival

Artaban Productions is pleased to announce that the world premiere of the documentary Eddy’s Kingdom will screen at the Victoria Film Festival in Victoria, British Columbia with two screenings on February 11 and February 13, 2020. Produced by Greg Crompton and Tony Cerciello, this is director Greg Crompton’s feature documentary directorial debut.  This world premiere is a bit of a homecoming for Greg as he studied at the University of Victoria where he received his degree in creative writing majoring in scriptwriting and shot his first films.

Eddy’s Kingdom is an eighty-five minute archival documentary recounting the previously untold story of Canada’s most monomaniacal entrepreneur, Eddy Haymour, and the stranger-than-fiction methods he pursued to construct an island theme park in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. It focuses on a Lebanese-Canadian immigrant who straddles two cultures, and who, in an effort to realize his dream, staged a week-long hostage taking in the Canadian Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon. https://www.victoriafilmfestival.com/box-office/eddys-kingdom

Eddy Haymour is a barber, an eccentric entrepreneur, a psychiatric patient, a kidnapper, and a hostage taker. A controversial character, Eddy has been called both madman and visionary. The historical narrative follows Eddy’s arrival in Edmonton from Lebanon. The story zeros in on a series of events that took place in British Columbia in the ‘70s and ‘80s. It starts with a government conspiracy that blocked the construction of his island theme park. The subsequent fallout is chronicled: the kidnapping of his children, the attempts to send letter bombs to his enemies, his incarceration in Riverview Psychiatric Hospital, his plan to bomb the provincial legislature, his hostage taking in Lebanon, and eventual vindication by the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Today, his fruitless quest continues as he attempts to confront the current BC government to get his island back.

Although Eddy finally wins in court, it is a pyrrhic victory. He doesn’t get the island back. His obsession with getting it back led him to take hostages, plan attacks on government, and lose his sanity.  His youngest daughter from his second marriage, Fadwa, helps him navigate a government bureaucracy that is beyond his ability. With all of his other family members estranged, Fadwa is the final connection for Eddy to a life once full of success and love. 

Today, his fruitless quest continues as he attempts to confront the current BC government to get his island back. His narcissism will not allow him to see the obvious fact that there is no chance of ever getting the island back. This documentary draws a portrait of an obsessed man lost in delusions of justice.

Director, Greg Crompton grew up in Kelowna, British Columbia and boated by Rattlesnake Island numerous times. Eddy’s Kingdomis Greg’s first feature documentary as a solo director. He was always amazed that a man had picked up an AK-47 and held a bunch of hostages over this insignificant, albeit beautiful, speck of land in the Okanagan Lake. The story itself was murky, no one seemed to have it straight. Was Eddy a victim or a terrorist? Was his dream really an amusement park in the middle of a lake? Were the letter bombs real?

Greg’s directorial vision was simple: tell all sides of the story with Eddy as the primary storyteller. It was his story but other voices would be needed in order to create an accurate narrative. Taking Eddy’s point of view wasn’t meant to excuse his actions, but to give voice to someone who had been maligned for decades.

“My goal was to put the audience in an awkward position: a closeness to both a perpetrator of violence and a victim of a conspiracy. It was key that the audience get all the necessary information to pass judgement. I wanted the audience to feel conflicted as to how they ultimately viewed Eddy,” says Greg. “I mixed archival media along with ‘created’ archival media to heighten this experience of subjective truth versus objective truth, of factual truth versus emotional truth. Ultimately, there are no villains in this story; there are no heroes. This is a bizarre tale centred on a complex character, and the audience is right in the middle of it. There is no resolution for Eddy. I wanted to activate the audience. I wanted them to have to pass judgement on a man and his actions.”

Greg has directed, produced, and written award-winning short films, documentaries, and TV shows around the globe. He got his start shooting and directing mini-documentaries in Europe and Africa. He then went on to produce a series of TV shows called VJIAM.tvGo For Gold TV, and Project Green Generation TV. His forays into directing have won awards for the feature documentary Guns to Mics and the short documentary Listening to a Sense of Place. His most recent project was directing the documentary show BC Was Awesome season 3, released in fall 2019. 

Greg Crompton and Eddy Haymour are available for interviews. Screeners are available upon request.

Doralynn Mui in Riverdale 2020

Actress Doralynn Mui gets to push her boundaries in her role as Joan Berkeley on The CW series Riverdale 

Actress Doralynn Mui pushes her boundaries on The CW series Riverdale in her role as Joan Berkeley.  ‘Joan’ is one of the most talented students at the elite Stonewall Prep, and a member of the exclusive Quill and Skull literary society. Along with her privileged clique, she isn’t afraid to push boundaries to mess with Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and those closest to him. Doralynn is thrilled to be part of the extremely talented cast in this recurring role. Riverdale Season 4 episode 10 “Varsity Blues” is back from hiatus on January 22 with a new episode airing every Wednesday at 8:00 PM PST/EST on The CW then streaming on Netflix the following day.

Doralynn has a number of other productions coming out this year. In the short film All-in Madonna directed by Arnold Lim, Doralynn plays ‘Kiera,’ who is popular, outgoing, and initially welcoming to the new girl. All-In Madonna will have its Canadian Premiere on January 26 at 3pm at the Vancouver Short Film Festival and is scheduled to screen in England as part of the London Short Film Festival. Most recently the short film screened at the New Jersey Film Festival and Golden Door Film Festival.

One of the roles Doralynn had the most fun working on is her guest star role as ‘Riku’ on SyFy’s Deadly Classepisode The Clampdown, now airing on Crave. In this role Doralynn had her first choreographed fight scene, which was a fun challenge. Riku is the top lieutenant in Saya’s (Lana Condor) Kuroki clan. Riku rebels against Saya and tries to take matters into her own hands when she feels that Saya is too weak. “Riku is such a ‘badass’ and had such a clear motivation for everything she did,” adds Doralynn.

Doralynn is also the lead actor in the short film Bunny Man, which won VAFF’s Mighty Asian Moviemaking Marathon Jury Award- Best 10 Minute Short, as well as VAFF’s People’s Choice Award- Mighty Moviemaking Marathon Best Overall Short. 

In the indie feature film Four Walls directed by Darcey Touhey, Doralynn plays ‘Lindsay.’ She also has the role of ‘Cranberry’ in Awesomeness Films’ Spontaneous starring Katherine Langford (Knives Out, 13 Reasons Why). She has also roles in several pilots that we are waiting to see if they will be picked up, including NBCUniversal Peacock’s One of Us Is Lying, based on the YA novel by Karen M. McManus.

As a kid, she always loved entertaining people by pretending to be in soap operas, making up stories and playing other characters. Her interest in acting was awakened when she was given a small role in the school play in Grade 7, but never thought acting could be a real career that normal people could pursue. After high school, she started auditioning for independent and student films, thinking that she would just try acting temporarily, but soon realized that there was nothing else she would rather do. Doralynn is so excited to be a working actor and thankful to be acting for a living! 

Doralynn booked her first union project on her second auditionTV pilot for APTN entitled Skye and Chang won Best Live Short at the American Indian Film Festival.

Doralynn studied Film Production and Communication at Simon Fraser University, and took theatre as an elective before eventually deciding to pursue acting as a career.

She has trained with many coaches in Vancouver and Toronto.  She primarily trains with her longtime mentor and coach, Peter Bryant (who plays Waldo Weatherbee in Riverdale) at The Bryant Centre, and Aaron Craven, at Working Actors Gym. In the past, she has trained in improv at the Second City in Toronto, and Scene Study with John Cassini, Ben Ratner, Carol Kelsay and Andrew McIlroy, among others.

Doralynn was born, raised and resides in Vancouver, Canada. She is an advocate for diversity in the arts and is encouraged to see that there are more opportunities for Asians and minorities in the last couple of years. 

Doralynn is available for interviews and photos upon request.

Versatile performer Wesley MacInnes joins the talented cast of HISTORY’s hit UFO drama series Project Blue Book which returns for its second season on January 21st at 10/9c. The historical drama from Academy Award and Golden Globe® winner Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, Contact) and starring Aidan Gillen (“Game of Thrones”) and Michael Malarkey (“The Vampire Diaries”) is based on the true, Top Secret investigations into Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and related phenomena conducted by the United States Air Force from 1952-1969.

Wesley plays a soldier named Damon in the upcoming premiere episode – “The Roswell Incident – Part I.”  By its very nature, the series is shrouded in secrecy, so you will have to tune in if you would like to learn more about Damon’s story!

On the big screen, Wesley recently found himself caught in the middle of a gang war in the revenge-driven dark comedy feature film Cold Pursuit, starring Liam Neeson, Laura Dern, and Emmy Rossum. 

Wesley was last spotted on television in the hit CW show DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, playing up his Irish heritage, and hamming it up as a cheeky leprechaun hanging out with Marilyn Monroe in a 1962 Las Vegas Casino. Other recent notable roles include a villain in the 2017 feature film Power Rangers

Wesley pours his passion for performing in every role. He has a long list of television credits that include: iZombie, Motive, The 100, Supernatural, Continuum, Smallville, Heartland and The Vampire Diaries. He has also taken on roles in feature films, including Magic Beyond Words: The JK Rowling Story, A Dog Named Christmas, Girl House, and The Phantoms.

On the other side of the camera, Wesley is an established music video director and has been nominated multiple times for director and video of the year at the CCMA, BCCMA and Leo Awards.

As a musician, MacInnes is widely recognized by his stage name Wes Mack. Mack is a ten-time CCMA nominated artist who has toured with Shania Twain and performed alongside acts including Eric Church, Luke Combs, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, and Midland. 

Mack’s latest album Soul, which was co-produced by Mack and Jordan Orbek (George Canyon, Chris Buck), dropped in 2019 and has already amassed over 4 million spins. The album digs deep into his life stories and gives listeners everything from high energy anthems to slow-burning ballads.

The latest single from the album is an upbeat anthem titled, Just Getting Warmed Up and is set to be released to radio on January 24th, 2020.

The singer-songwriter took a hands-on approach for his sophomore album, co-writing and co-producing every track. Mack wrote both of his previous top 10 Country Billboard hits and has written with veteran songwriters in Nashville and abroad. 

Wesley is a Calgary native, who currently resides in Vancouver, where he continues to expand his ever-growing resume of impressive credits. From the largest stages and arenas to the director’s chair, from writing hit songs to creating characters as an actor; Wesley has established himself as a creative force of many forms.

High Arctic Haulers New on CBC

THUNDERBIRD ENTERTAINMENT AND CBC TEAM UP FOR HIGH ARCTIC HAULERS

New prime time factual series brings Canada’s riveting and critical Arctic sealift to audiences around the world 

Thunderbird Entertainment Group Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its newest high-action factual series, High Arctic Haulers, in partnership with CBC. Produced by Thunderbird’s Factual Division Great Pacific Media, High Arctic Haulers airs at 8:00 p.m. (8:30 NT) on CBC and the free CBC Gem streaming service in Canada.  

Near the top of the world, there’s a place so remote that only the toughest dare stay. To live in the High Arctic you must be resilient, resourceful and willing to beat the odds. Once a year, the Arctic gambles on the Sealift – an armada of cargo ships packed with supplies the land doesn’t provide. 

High Arctic Haulers is a factual series that tells the story of a thriving North through the lens of “The Sealift” – an annual mission to resupply dozens of the most isolated communities in Canada. There is no place in the world more difficult to move cargo than the Arctic. Complicated by weather, ice and a lack of infrastructure, each cargo ship in the fleet is self-sufficient – complete with tugs, barges, cranes and loaders to land and deliver on Canada’s most remote shorelines. The ships leave from Montreal to chase retreating ice during a brief window in the summer when winter’s grip on the region loosens. 

The Sealift is the lifeline of the North and is packed with thousands of tonnes of supplies to meet the growing demand of Canada’s most resilient communities. In the North the biggest day of the Year isn’t Christmas, it’s the day the ship arrives. This season, the Sealift will carry construction materials to replace a school that burned down, a taxicab for Igloolik, and new equipment for a rapidly expanding fish plant. Add that to the toys that will be stocked on store shelves and tons of groceries, and by watching you will quickly see the Sealift is crucial to the North.  

Leading the Haulers is the unofficial admiral of the fleet, Captain Michel Duplain. A thirty-year veteran of the seas, Captain Duplain has spent the last decade navigating Arctic waters. For the Captain, there is nowhere in the world as alluring as the Arctic – the smells, the sights, the freedom. But the call of the North can’t mask the challenging mission Captain Duplain has ahead of him this summer. He’s taking 22,000 tonnes of cargo to the Arctic and doing it all with a new crew aboard a ship he’s never sailed before. Through it all, Captain Duplain never wavers – a steady hand at the wheel of the Sedna in the always dangerous Arctic waterways. 

On the Taiga, Captain Olivier Nault is the youngest commander in the Desgagnés fleet.  The 35-year-old is a rising star, with a huge responsibility, running the largest ship in the fleet. Along with First Mate, Marc-Antoine Saucier, Captain Nault and the Taiga have the busiest schedule in the fleet.   They are a no-nonsense-get-it-done crew that is willing to take on anything the Arctic can throw at them.

Communities across Canada’s Arctic have been waiting up to a year for the resupply missions of the Sealift. From Nunavut’s rapidly growing capital city, Iqaluit, to Canada’s northernmost settlement, Grise Fiord, the north is expanding and the Sealift is the only way to bring in the goods and supplies to meet those demands. In Iqaluit, the sealift brings in hotels, a new port and even a brewery. In Grise Fiord, it’s a new power plant to replace their aging, failing power supply. Gjoa Haven and Pangnirtung need new emergency vehicles; Kugarruk, a new school. Cape Dorset needs a gravel compactor to finish off the Arctic’s first BMX track. Kugluktuk’s community needs table tennis and lacrosse equipment to keep up with demand from its youth. And in Chesterfield Inlet, a single mother of three has been saving for two years to purchase her family a new red pickup truck. 

High Arctic Haulers is a gruelling test of endurance. It is the story of adventure and resilience in a place where tradition and ambition mix in the cold Arctic wind, because to thrive up here – the haul must get through.

High Arctic Haulers is unique in the way that is both celebrates the North and the achievements of the vibrant and resilient residents that choose the high arctic as their home, while showcases the hard work that goes into keeping the High Arctic supplied with vital equipment and resources that are too large to fly in. The 7-part series airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT) on CBC. Watch the first two episodes now on CBC Gem: https://gem.cbc.ca/season/high-arctic-haulers/season-1/3a69b049-cccf-43bf-bf2c-71b5575a211f
