DOYLE CREW Who’s Who – Lori Ann King

It's no secret we love REPUBLIC OF DOYLE and likewise the stars of the hit show!  We've had the great pleasure of  watching the amazing cast perform for the past five seasons, and have had the awesome opportunity to chat on camera many times over the years as well.

But now - as we head into the sixth and finale season of the St.John's, NL based hit series - we want to turn the spotlight on the amazing team BEHIND THE SCENES.  It's our salute to the production team - the REPUBLIC OF DOYLE Crew Who's Who series - continuing with a lady who has spent all 6 seasons getting the sets all set... meet Lori Ann King.

A Set Decorator is in charge of the set dressing on a film/television set which includes the furnishings, drapery, lighting fixtures, artwork and many of the other objects that will be seen in the film.   A set decorator will give direction to the team of set dressers to create the look the decorator & art director are looking for.

What's been you favourite episode so far?

I think my favorite episode so far would have to be Episode #603 "Smash Derby".  It was a huge set to dress but a lot of fun!  Especially taking a sledge hammer to a bunch of already rundown cars to make them look as if they had been in a real derby.  (It helped with venting any stress I had dressing such a big set.)

What's the best part of working on 
REPUBLIC OF DOYLE?

Being able to work in my home province for sure! Not that I'd mind travelling for work, but it's nice to know that you can see your family and friends as often as you'd like.  Also the fact that for the set decorating team - everyday is different.  One day you could be prepping and dressing a smash derby set and the next you could be setting up a backyard "zen garden" with a hot tub to boot!

What's your favourite thing to do in NEWFOUNDLAND & LABRADOR when you're not filming REPUBLIC OF DOYLE?

This summer especially, I've been exploring the rest of the province.  I like getting in the car and going on mini-adventures to small communities and checking out their festivals, going for a twisty cone or just walking around and taking in the sights and beauty of those places.  I'm a baymen so I just love those tiny places.

And finally...do you think Jake & Leslie should end up together?

Yes.  Something's gotta give for them finally, doesn't it?JAKE AND LESLIE
