ALLAN HAWCO #FFF Friday’s Favourite Four

Posted: June 24, 2011

Time for another edition of our fun new feature that takes the #FF one 'F' further...and shakes up Twitter's popular acronym with a SABS twist.

The Sea and be Scene #FFF is your weekly chance to discover the four favourites of your favourite East Coast folks.

The four questions will always stay the same...only the folks will change. So for this week…

One of favourite fellas from the great province of Newfoundland & Labrador – he is an actor of stage and screen who has co-starred with the likes of Richard Attenborough, Christopher Plummer and Shirley MacLaine.

He is a founding Co-Artistic Director of  The Company Theatre in Toronto.

But for the last few years in Canada, and now in near 90 countries, he is best known as Jake Doyle. We’re pretty sure St.John’s, NL has never had a more popular (or dreamy) ambassador.

He is the Co-Creator, Executive Producer, Head Writer, Showrunner and Star of the hit series Republic of Doyle – and the sweetest thing to come in off Bell Island since Harry Hibbs...he is Allan Hawco

Huge thanks to you Mr. Hawco – we know you’re up to your neck in 'busy' - as Season 3 of R of D starts shooting next month.  And on behalf of fans everywhere may we please say – HURRY UP!!!  We simply can’t wait! SABS

SABS Bad News/Good News

Bad News: while being highly regarded and wildly popular with the good folks of St.John's, NL, we were unable to secure a visual of Paul Dean at the time of posting - we're still on the look out.

Good News: not having the picture allowed us to show you the Johnson Geo-Centre a must see when you're in St. John's and include the movie poster for Allan's great movie Love & Savagery for which he consulted with Paul Dean. Here's a look at the trailer

Paul DeanNOW Better news as of June 29, 2011  A PICTURE OF PAUL DEAN FOUND!!!

SABS Salutes Hannah Dean who answered our call for a picture of Paul you'll read from the comment below...she had an inside track on accessing a great visual.  We're grateful to you Hannah thanks.  Handsome fella your Dad!

    Paul Dean; geologist, man about town, small time actor, and as it just so happens, my dad!
