Up and coming actor Derrick de Villiers set to appear in the Disney+ series Turner & Hooch and feature film Snake Eyes in summer 2021
It is set to be an exciting summer for rising talent Derrick de Villiers who is appearing in both a new TV series and feature film production.
First up, Derrick plays the role of a rough around the edges prisoner in the Disney+ series Turner & Hooch, starring Josh Peck. In the series, U.S. Marshall Scott Turner (Peck) inherits an unruly dog named Hooch, who may become the partner he needs. Together, the duo, alongside the rest of the Turner family, discovers that his father’s death may not have been accidental. The new show, which is a revival of the 1989 film of the same name, will premiere on July 16, 2021.
Also in July, Derrick can be seen in the role of Ringmaster, the epitome of a hustler, in Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins. The feature film follows a lone fighter who is welcomed in and trained by an ancient Japanese ninja clan called the Arashikage, but finds his loyalties being tested when secrets from his past are revealed and he eventually goes on the path to become the hero known as “Snake Eyes”. The action spin-off from the G.I. Joe franchise, which stars Henry Goulding, premieres on July 23, 2021.
Derrick was thrilled to have the opportunity to work on such high-profile productions with talented and well-respected directors, casts and crews. He was able to not only gain valuable experience on-set, but also more knowledge of the craft from the seasoned professionals he worked alongside.
While Derrick knew from a young age that he wanted to be a performer, it wasn’t until he was diagnosed with a chronic illness that he altered his life path and was inspired to follow his passion and true purpose by pursuing his dreams.
From there, he attended Deb Podowski Acting Studio and trained under Kaaren de Zilva continuously for the last eight years.
Derrick grew up in the Lower Mainland. He currently resides in New Westminster.

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.

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.

On season six of The CW’s DC’sLegends 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.

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.

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.
