A few other production opportunities have recently arisen, some of which would take me away from Toronto. Akemi and Suji would, obviously, come with, but I’m not so sure I want to leave Hog Town. Maybe if this was twenty years ago and I really needed that next gig, but I now have the luxury of waiting things out. Then again, I shouldn’t thoroughly dismissed these nascent possibilities. Back when I was living in Vancouver, the thought of shooting a show in Toronto did not appeal – but I went ahead and did three season of Dark Matter. Much earlier in my life, the prospect of leaving Montreal to travel to the other side of the country for work seemed the last thing I wanted to do – yet, in the end, I packed my bags, moved to Vancouver, and did 12 years of Stargate.
I suppose part of my reticence stems from my desire to see three of the big projects I have in play (see last entry) go to camera. By committing to another production, I’ll be taking myself out of contention should any of those projects get a green light. On the other, it’s the classic –
Do I take Door #1 or wait and try my luck with Door’s #2 or #3?

Before she landed on #AgentsOfShield – and after her memorable run on #ER – actress @MingNa played the part of Camile Wray on #StargateUniverse.
Immensely talented, she's also possessed of an incredibly kind and positive spirit. pic.twitter.com/V67xRUBkbg

Actor/Writer/Producer Miklos Perlus played the villainous Victor Kane to perfection in #StudentBodies. However, unlike most actors who play bad guys, Mik is surprisingly un-nefarious, down-to-earth and good-natured. pic.twitter.com/i8s9ohK5je
