SABS 7th Salute from Jonathan Torrens

Posted: July 11, 2017

Now this is AWESOME!!!

It's our first back-lot birthday greeting and we couldn't be happier! Today's #SABS7 Salute comes from actor, writer, producer, director, podcaster, host, author and all around phenomenal fella - Charlottetown, PEI's own Jonathan Torrens.

Enter his name and you'll be eligible to WIN a copy of CANADA - 150 Panoramas by best selling author/photographer George Fischer as the daily prize for July 9th, 2017 (click on the picture to read more about the book) and qualify for our HEAVENLY STAY grand prize draw.

With all of those titles it's no surprise Jonathan Torrens has provided SEA AND BE SCENE with a ton of material over the past 7 years.  Just search his name on the site and you'll see we've had a blast chatting with Mr.T - from our first extended interview on the Halifax set of his hit CBC show Mr.D, to our rapid round of INsights IN 10 , to our TBP3 Premiere with J-Roc to our back lot pit stop during our Maritimes in a Day Road Trip Show - he's kept us in stitches.

Of course watching him in action is splitting too!  As you can see in this #SABS7 Salute Jonathan is suited up for his Canadian Screen Award winning role as Vice Principal Cheely as Mr.D with season 7 now in its third week of production.

And if you're fans of his TAGGART 'N TORRENS podcast like we are - you know he's hilarious on that show too.  And while we're always entertained by Jonathan - we are constantly amazed by his creativity and his continually jam-packed work schedule.  The man never stops!

He celebrated CANADA 150 with a 1 hour special for CBC - YOUR SPECIAL CANADA which he hosted, co-wrote and executive produced, and together with Jeremy Taggart - the T 'n T twosome hosted the Canada Day Concert on Parliament Hill.

And let's talk Taggart and Torrens for a minute as the fellas are finding their fanbase of bahds growing bigger by the minute - the boys will release their book "Canadianity: Tales From The True North Strong And Freezing" on October 17th and are planning a tour to support it too.

And as if all that wasn't enough Jonathan tells me he's writing not one but two movies with Nova Scotia filmmaker Megan Wennberg.  We'll be sure to keep you posted on those features and all the many wonderful works of Mr.Torrens.

For now, we'll just tell you how grateful we are to you Jonathan - for all of your support, for always making the time for SEA AND BE SCENE and for this truly cool #SABS7 Birthday Salute. You're the best bahd a website could ever ask for! SABS
