Krystin Pellerin is quite simply lovely...and we were so pleased when she took time during her day off to meet us in St.John’s. Like her character Constable Leslie Bennett on Republic of Doyle – Pellerin hails from Newfoundland and Labrador - Mount Pearl to be exact. We talked about everything from how wonderful it is to have a hit show in your hometown to shopping for shoes. Simply delightful!
I won’t lie – I love her character – Leslie Bennett is strong and smart and composed and for the most part - matter of fact in all things except matters of the heart and... Mr. Jake Doyle. Certainly she had his affections – proclaimed or otherwise - throughout season one and most ladies with a pulse would find that a truly enviable position given the fella in the title role – Mr. Allan Hawco.
Being a part of such a successful TV show is enviable too – and it’s clear Krystin is enjoying every minute of it. When the filming wraps on Republic of Doyle this December – Pellerin will shift from the small screen to the live stage and shift her world from St.John’s to Toronto. As a member of Soulpepper Theatre Company her other half of the year will be packed with performance.
And while she’s busy doing that we’ll all be tuning in to see what happens next...oh I asked her if Leslie and Jake make a go of it...and the most she would offer in the way of scoop was “there's a lot of stuff that happens” – vague yes – but they had me at “Oh Yeah”. SABS
