There's no denying - we here at Sea and be Scene LOVE Shawn Doyle.
The award winning NL actor is always working on something wonderful - so it's truly cool to post the latest from his world, and for this report... we've got lots to share.
Let's start with a Halloween treat - this Thursday, October 31st, Shawn will make his first appearance on CW's new hit series REIGN.
We posted back in July that Doyle has the reoccurring role of Mary's Uncle Claude – described as “charismatic, amusing and worldly” but ruthless and willing to do whatever it takes to maintain his position and power at court. Can't wait to watch! You can catch his first episode of the season, Ep. #103 "Kissed", when it airs in Canada on M3 a day earlier (10/30/13). Click here for times.
And this Friday, November 1st will mark the Toronto opening of THE DISAPPEARED (trailer above). The Shandi Mitchell film shot off the coast of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia earned Doyle the 2013 ACTRA Outstanding Performance Award for his role as Pete - much deserved!
We had a great chance to chat about his experience then (video) - but now... with this theatrical release so long after - we just had to track him down to see what he best recalls about THE DISAPPEARED.
Here's what he told us...
"I've made some life-long friends from this movie and I look forward to working with some of my actor buddies again... and collaborating with Shandi again too. Many moments from the filming have stayed with me: riding those huge swells, trying to get scenes shot before the sun goes down or the wind comes in... doing a drunk scene in the middle of the night, having to be relaxed and have fun while 200ml of rain is falling on you, soaked and chilly."

Quite an experience to have worked through and something altogether great to witness on the big screen.
Don't miss THE DISAPPEARED when it opens Friday, November 1 and runs through to Thursday, November 14 at Toronto's Carlton Cinema - screening daily at 1:30, 4, 6:45 &9pm. Click here for further info.
Cool too is a great bit of casting news for Mr.Doyle we hope to be sharing soon - so stay tuned for details on that plus an update on LIZZIE BORDEN in which Doyle co-stars with Christina Ricci (Pan Am) and Billy Campbell (The Killing/THE DISAPPEARED). The Lifetime TV movie filmed in Halifax, NS just this past summer is currently listed in post-production and we anticipate having an air date to share before too long. SABS
