Award-Winning Nicole Oliver featured on Hallmark Movies’ Round and Round starring Vic Michaelis

Award-winning actor Nicole Oliver teams up with Rick Hoffman on Hallmark Movies’ Round and Round starring Vic Michaelis as Rachel with David Attar, and Bryan Greenberg airing on Hallmark Channel and W Network on December 10, 8 PM ET / PT

Vancouver, BC December 2023 – Keeping busy on both sides of the camera multi-talented actor/voiceover/director Nicole is pleased to join Rick Hoffman (Suits, Billions) as parents of assistant editor Rachel (Vic Michaelis) in Hallmark Channel’s Round and Round airing on December 10 at 8:00 pm ET/PT. It will also air in Canada on W Network at the same time.

It’s the seventh night of Hanukkah Rachel is headed to her family’s annual Hanukkah party.  When Rachel’s boyfriend Adam, (David Attar, Unexpected Grace) can’t make the party, her prone-to-meddling Grandma Rosie, (Paula Shaw, Hannukah on Rye) introduces her to Zach (Bryan Greenberg), a nerdy art instructor. But Rachel and Zach have met before – he crashed into her that morning at the train station. Later in the night, a surprisingly competitive game of dreidel triggers a shocking turn of events.  The next morning, Rachel wakes up to discover it’s somehow still the day of her parents’ party and that she’s destined to repeat the seventh night of Hanukkah over and over again.

Nicole has worked alongside impressive A-list actors with a role in Wonder, starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, and Jacob Tremblay. She has also starred in many MOWs including Radio Hype, Ungodly Acts, The Christmas Ornament, The Woodcarver, Taken Back – Finding Haley, Unspeakable, and Innocent. Other Hallmark Channels MOW include A Family Christmas Gift with Holly Robinson Peete & Patti Labelle and Good Morning Christmas.

Nicole is in demand for her voice-over roles in cartoons both on the small screen (My Little Pony, LEGO Nexo Knights, Kate & Mim Mim) and big screen in Seth Rogen’s Sausage Party and Princess Celestia in My Little Pony: The Movie. She is the recipient of the UBCP/ACTRA award for Best Voice for her work in animation.

Nicole is one of the most respected and sought-after talents across many platforms in the film industry. She has had a busy year in front and behind the camera. With a recent  Leo award win for her lead role in the web series Narcoleap, and another UBCP/ACTRA award nomination for her voice work in Ninjago, 2024 shows no signs of slowing down. In addition to her on-camera work, she is currently voice-directing animated projects for Wildbrain, Mainframe, the LEGO group & PBS.

Brand New Album by Wes Mack Releasing Fall 2023

With over 15 Million Streams and 20 CCMA and BCCMA Award Nominations, Multi Talented Musician, Actor, Director, Producer and Writer, Wes Mack hits Fall 2023 with a Brand New Album, Single, TV Show and Film.

Following up on his first two albums, “Edge of the Storm” and “SOUL,” (which amassed four top 20 Billboard hits, millions of streams, and saw him tour with Shania Twain and Florida Georgia Line among others) Mack is now releasing his third studio album “Hummingbird” on October 20, 2023.

“Hummingbird” began production in early March 2020, just weeks before the pandemic began. “It certainly changed the album. It changed everything. But honestly it allowed the album to come together in a really unique way that opened up a million new possibilities,” said Mack.

“Zoom sessions, Facetime calls, and sharing files across the world… suddenly it was possible to work with anyone anywhere. It oddly freed us up to collaborate without even thinking about where anyone was. Just about the most interesting we could make something sound. That was the best part, and has become a huge part of how I make music now.”

The album’s work across multiple studios, provinces, and counties allowed it to feature the talents of some of the biggest names in the business, with writers including songwriters Gavin Slate (James Barker Band, Jade Eagleson), Travis Wood (Morgan Wallen, Jake Owen, Jordan Davis) Karen Kosowski (Mickey Guyton, Tim Hicks, Brett Kissel), Victoria Banks (Jessica Simpson, Mickey Guyton, Carly Pearce, Meghan Patrick), and many others.

The production was helmed by veteran producers Dan Swinimer (Madeline Merlo, Jojo Mason, Billy Currington) and Jordan Oorebeek (Spencer Crandall, Lydia Sutherland, Owen Reigling), as well as Mack himself producing on Be Without You, House of Love, and Don’t Change.

With its unique origin, “Hummingbird” has already spawned big successes for Mack. The singles have amassed over 2 million streams, have had multiple top 5 hits on SiriusXM (including a Number 1 this year with “Lookin’ For You”), as well as generating multiple placements in film and TV projects.

While working on the EP, Mack also penned a series of co-writes with other artists including the top 10 hit “Fighting” from Tyler Joe Miller, the current top 30 “Breakup Song” from Lemon Cash, and the SiriusXM Number One hit “Bleed Country” from David Boyd Janes.

Playing into his other strengths, this fall, Mack joined the cast of the CTV/NBC hit series TRANSPLANT, premiering its fourth and final season. Wes plays the role of Ryan, a 27 year old resident, in his first year general surgery. Season 4 of TRANSPLANT finds Bashir “Bash” Hamed (Haq) on the precipice of finishing his residency at York Memorial and officially re-qualifying as a doctor. Wes appears in episode 4, airing on Friday, October 27th. In the episode, series leads June (Ayisha Issa) and Dr Novak (Gord Rand) take different approaches with Wes’ character at the hospital.

Later in 2023 Mack is set to appear in a lead role in the heartwarming Christmas film, “Cape Holly Christmas” where art imitates life and Mack portrays a country musician named Luke, performing multiple original and classic Christmas songs, just in time for the holiday season. The film was shot in Mack’s home province of Alberta earlier in 2023.

Mack has shared the silver screen with a variety of stars from Liam Neeson in “Cold Pursuit,” to Kate Beckinsale in the Paramount Plus series “Guilty Party,” and recently played a lead role in the 2022 Netflix series “The Imperfects” which spent multiple weeks in the global top three shows. Other past credits include: “Power Rangers,” “DC’S Legends of Tomorrow”, “iZombie”, “Motive” “The 100”, “Supernatural”, “Continuum”, “Smallville”, “Heartland,” “The Vampire Diaries”.  “Magic Beyond Words: The JK Rowling Story”, “A Dog Named Christmas”, “Girl House”, and “The Phantoms”. 

Behind the camera Mack has also made a name for himself as a director and producer, earning him nominations for Music Video of the Year and Director of the Year at the CCMA, BCCMA and Leo Awards, while creating compelling narrative pieces for artists like JUNO Award Winner Jess Moskaluke.

The documentary DOPPELGÄNGERS: Face to Face premieres Wednesday, October 18 on CBC

A must-watch: The documentary DOPPELGÄNGERS: Face to Face premieres Wednesday, October 18 on CBC Gem and CBC TV at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT) 

DOPPELGÄNGERS: Face to Face, commissioned by CBC’s The Passionate Eye, examines the curious phenomenon of identical strangers and our desire to meet ourselves. 

DOPPELGÄNGERS: Face to Face investigates today’s preoccupation with the power and importance of identity through the journeys of a diverse and exceptional group of individuals all hunting for their “twin stranger.”

The documentary follows six unique characters with strong individualistic personalities, interesting passions, and unique life stories as they embark on an adventure to meet their “second self.” Nathaniël and Edward, Sheena and Desirée, and Kiki and Elaine are about to come face to face with their unrelated lookalike and confront not only their reflection but also their deepest desires for human connection. DOPPELGÄNGERS: Face to Face premieres on CBC’s The Passionate Eye, Wednesday, October 18 on CBC Gem and CBC TV at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT).

It used to be that seeing one’s doppelgänger was a very bad omen. But today, worldwide, millions of people are actively looking for their unrelated twin. They are joining websites and posting selfies, scouring the walls of museums, and using facial recognition software all in the hopes of finding their double. What is behind this? Are we searching for something that is more than skin deep? Does our stranger-twin offer a view of the life we could have led? Or is it that we wonder what others see when they look our way? We are all about to find out. 

DOPPELGÄNGERS: Face to Face examines the curious phenomenon of identical strangers and our desire to meet ourselves. 

From Writer/Director Deborah Wainwright: In 2022, a study about unrelated “twins” was published in the academic journal Cell Reports. Media outlets worldwide wrote about it, news networks covered it, and it was in everyone’s Facebook and Twitter feeds. One of the authors was even interviewed in-studio on CNN. Why? The doppelgänger phenomenon isn’t new. What about the idea that each of us has someone (possibly many “someones”) somewhere on the planet who looks just like us, that sent our imaginations soaring right now? I decided this was worthy of a deeper investigation.

There are more than 10 million “doppelgänger seekers” registered to various online “find your doppelgänger” sites and although they generally say they’re looking for their stranger twin “as a lark” when you dig a little deeper some very personal reasons come to light. According to Dr. Adam Golub, an American Studies professor at California State University Fullerton, our interest in doppelgängers tends to peak during times of division in the body politic, at periods when technology (especially technology of duplication) has us a little fearful, and when we are struggling with issues of identity. Sound familiar?

Indeed, themes of identity, belonging, and human connection became quickly evident as we got to know our stranger twins. They expressed the desire to find someone who represents the sibling they never had or whom they had lost. Someone who provided that feeling of being connected as a family. Someone who understands them and may have experienced what they have experienced simply because they resemble one another. And they found similarities and connections that went well beyond their physical attributes. It was both hilarious and heartwarming to watch. 

LAKE TIDE MEDIA INC. is a partnership of industry veterans Deborah Wainwright and Laurie Case and a proud Canadian West Coast production company. For CBC, Sally Catto is General Manager of Entertainment, Factual, and Sports; Jennifer Dettman is Executive Director of Unscripted Content; Sandra Kleinfeld is Senior Director of Documentary; and Michelle McCree is Executive in Charge of Production, CBC Docs and The Passionate Eye.

Producer Laurie Case is from Vernon, BC, and Writer/Director Deborah Wainwright from the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver and Edward (Doppelgänger participant) based in Montreal, Quebec are available for interviews.

Emmanuelle’s inner and outer beauty shines through as she is among the select group of women to be featured on ‘Maxim‘s Top 100’ list twice. She was also named fifth on Femme Fatal magazine’s 50 Sexiest Women on the Planet’, and was named ‘Sexiest Woman Alive’ for the sixth time by Smartasses Magazine.

Lesley Diana | Publicist | | 604-726-5575


British Columbia’s film industry continues to make an impact on the world stage. Vancouver is a true Hollywood North, home to hundreds of film and television productions over the years. We can also boast that Ryan Reynolds, Seth Rogan and Michael J. Fox call Vancouver their hometown. So what makes Vancouver such a hotbed of entertainment talent and exports?

As an entertainment publicist for the last 25 years, I have worked with many actors, TV series and feature films and coordinated some of the biggest Red Carpet events where actors have the opportunity to show up and show off. 

I reached out to some of the key players in our thriving film industry to get their thoughts on the Vancouver Film Industry. Actors, filmmakers and the entertainment industry will be attending the 2023 Leo Awards being held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Vancouver July 8th and 9th, 2023. As our industry is feeling the affects of the Writers Strike and looming Actors Strike these quotes are a reminder of why British Columbia and our entertainment industry is such a huge part of our economy.  

Karla Laird, Executive Administrative Director (Interim Director of Member Services & Communication at UBCP/ACTRA shares, “BC’s entertainment industry is in every way the result of a melting pot of various cultures. It’s what you get when Maple leaf pride mixes with an Asian flare, Caribbean spice, African dynamism, and European charm. It’s a place that tests your mettle, where people learn to build things from the ground up, embark on adventures, and are super comfortable with not getting things right on the first try – the perfect training ground for a real superstar. And of course, without being too boastful, the province itself is a work of art – snow-capped mountains, rugged terrain, gorgeous lakes, and breathtaking views – nature’s finest display that consistently motivates and inspires new talent. It’s not hard to see why Vancouver has become a mecca for actors and a factory for high-quality performers.”

Award-winning actor/director/writer/producer Agam Darshi’s feature film Donkeyhead has been winning awards worldwide. Darshi adds, “I think out of all the cities I’ve worked in, Vancouver has always had a wonderful sense of community.  But I really feel a unique sense of camaraderie and caring from my peers. Everyone is rooting for everyone. Don’t know why it’s like that here, but I suspect we live in a bubble in Vancouver, and so you need to be able to count on others to make it through this crazy business. We are our own little world. It’s like a small town big city; everyone knows each other and supports when they can.”

John Cassini is also an award-winning actor/producer who has worked in Vancouver for over 30 years. Cassini was fortunate to work on several TV series back in the late ’80s in Vancouver when Stephen J. Cannell set up shop and brought multiple shows including Wiseguy and 21 Jump Street introducing Vancouver to the world. John moved back to Los Angeles in 1992. On his return to Vancouver in 2014, John started producing.  “I knew that there were projects that if I didn’t roll up my sleeves they would never get made. Our community would always be there to support productions in front and behind the camera. The training we all benefited from in our service industry paid dividends when making our local Independent Feature Films.”

So are we a bunch of show-offs? We should be! We have built a unique community that supports and maintains an entertainment ecosystem unlike any other. But we are Canadian, so we aren’t known to brag.
