Award Winning Actor Gabrielle Rose plays Aunt Ida in the critically acclaimed feature film MAUDIE starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke that opens in New York on June 6th

Gabrielle just completed four roles in Jessie nominated Angels in America Part One- Millennium Approaches

One of Canada’s most respected actors with over 160 film and television credits, Gabrielle Rose is very proud of her role in the feature film Maudie. Gabrielle has been invited to attend Maudie when it opens at AMC Lowes Theater in Lincoln Square on June 6th. The film has received overwhelming success in film festivals world-wide and in theatres across Canada. In Maudie Gabrielle plays Maud’s Aunt Ida. The film stars Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky, Blue Jasmine) and Ethan Hawke (Before Midnight, Training Day, Boyhood). Gabrielle had to age twenty-five plus years for the second half of her role in the film. It is a female driven production, with Irish Director Aisling Walsh, written by Sherry White and produced by Mary Young Leckie, Mary Sexton, Heather Haldane and Robert M Cooper. Maudie is an iconic Canadian story about a female folk artist.

With unforgettable performances by Academy Award® nominees Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke, this Irish-Canadian co-production is based on a true story, of an unlikely romance in which the reclusive Everett Lewis (Ethan Hawke) hires a fragile yet determined folk artist Maud Lewis (Sally Hawkins) to be his housekeeper. Maudie, bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands, yearns to be independent to live away from her protective family (Aunt Ida) and she also yearns, passionately, to create art. Unexpectedly, Everett finds himself falling in love. Maudie charts Everett’s efforts to protect himself from being hurt, Maudie’s deep and abiding love for this difficult man and her surprising rise to fame as a folk painter.

Gabrielle Rose, one of the most respected actors in Canada, is nominated for a Leo Award for for Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Motion Picture for her role in Two4One’.

With close to 150 credits to her name Gabrielle is most proud of the multiple Award Winning feature film Two4One: the story of a transgendered man (Gavin Crawford who won an ACTRA award for his performance) wrestling with the state of his life – an unfulfilling job, mixed feelings for his ex (Naomi Snieckus), and a mother (Gabrielle Rose) yearning for grandchildren – when he suddenly finds himself unexpectedly pregnant.

Two4One is bittersweet comedic drama written and directed by Maureen Bradley. After two years of living as a man, Adam has almost saved enough money to make it official: undergo gender reassignment surgery, and he can finally feel complete. But when he agrees to help his baby-crazy ex-girlfriend artificially inseminate, they wind up in bed together—and they both conceive. Now Adam must reconcile his identity with his biological reality, grapple with his feelings for his ex, and try to figure out what it means to be a man. Two4One will be screening in San Francisco – Frameline: June 20th and Los Angeles- Outfest LA: July 12th. Nominated for 6 Leos, including best feature, Two4One is on a roll.

A Tribute to Cory Monteith

The Promotion People - Cory Monteith

Our hearts go out to Cory Monteith’s family and friends.

We were lucky enough to work with Cory as his publicist from 2007 to 2009, while he was on his road to “Glee”.

Cory is one of the nicest people that anyone could ever meet. The last time we saw Cory from a far was with Richard Branson in Vancouver at a Board of Trade Luncheon. Of all people in the world, Richard Branson chose Cory to be his Virgin Unite Ambassador. Cory also supports Project Limelight for homeless youth in Vancouver to give them the chance to discover their strengths and potential through the arts.

Cory was a talent of course, but also a caring, lovely man who will be greatly missed. He had love and respect from everyone who knew him. Our hearts go out to his family, friends and Lea Michele. Cory was blessed with his long time agent Elena Kirschner, who guided Cory’s career from the beginning. We know how much they care for each other.

From the first time we meet Cory, we knew that he had a very successful career as an actor ahead of him. We were with Cory when he walked his very first Red Carpet at the Vancouver International Film Festival. It turned out to be the first of many. After an interview with the Biography Channel early on in his career, the reporter told us that Cory was one of the most amazing interviews that she had ever experienced. He was so honest about his struggles to succeed.

Cory drove to Los Angeles to audition for “Glee”. He had to pull into roadside rest stations to conduct press interviews along the way. We were so excited when Cory called to tell us that he had booked his role as Finn Hudson on the new Fox hit series.

The Promotion People - Cory Monteith - Brothers & Sisters

Cory has had a US publicist since the explosion in popularity of “Glee”, so we were thrilled when we could work with him again at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, while promoting Carl Bessai’s Feature Film “Sisters & Brothers”, with co-stars Dustin Milligan, Amanda Crew, Gabrielle Miller, Ben Ratner, Gabrielle Rose, Camille Sullivan, Tom Scholte, Jay Brazeau, Kacey Rohl, Ali Liebert, Monica Delain and Beatrice King; all past/present clients. It was a very special time and Cory was genuinely happy to see me and gave me a huge hug. One I will always remember.

We join Cory’s family, friends, the cast of ”Glee”, actors, media and millions of fans everywhere when we say:

“Cory you will be missed. You left us all far too soon.”
