Today was the calm in the eye of the hurricane, that brief respite before the inevitable storm that will be tomorrow’s BIG extended action sequence. When I said that this was our most ambitious episode to date, I was, for the most part, referring to THIS particular scene. Can’t wait to see stunt coordinator John Stead’s masterpiece come together.
As I mentioned the other day, I’d like to offer fans a chance to get to know the talented people behind the scenes by bringing back the guest Q&A’s. And I’d like to kick things off by announcing our first Dark Matter crew member Q&A with our key make-up artist, the lovely Linda McCormack. When she’s not back at her trailer creating nasty-looking wounds like this one –
Or getting in at 5 a.m. to cover tattoos for that day’s shirtless scene, she’s usually on set discussing Italian dishes with yours truly. Having worked on a scores of movies, mini-series, and shows (Dark Matter and Lost Girl among them), I’m sure she has plenty of interesting stories to tell. Let’s find out!
Post your questions for Linda in the comments section. I’ll gather them over the next few days and then send them her way at week’s end!

In addition to being a rest day, today was – after a week of early morning work-outs and clean eating – CHEAT DAY! I still worked out. And I still ate a healthy lunch and dinner. But I DID snack on these…
Astoundingly good eclairs from Nugateau, Toronto’s first eclair-only patisserie (717 Queen Street West).
The three varieties we sampled (dark chocolate, pistachio, and vanilla) were…well…unbelievably delicious. The pistachio, in particular, was one of those bites the foodie in me will dream about for some time to come.
Or at least until next week’s Cheat Day!
