ALLAN HAWCO Third Time’s a Charm

Posted: March 6, 2012

If this is your first time on Sea and be Scene…Welcome!  And for the record – I LOVE REPUBLIC OF DOYLE.

For everyone else that’s no surprise.  Yes - I stand with a legion of over one million folks that feel the same way about Wednesday nights as I do.

Republic of Doyle - Cast shot Season 3

But, I consider myself one of the luckier ones – for in addition to enjoying the series for three seasons now…I get to write and report on it whenever possible.

Interviewing Allan Hawco....Sea and be Scene - Stephanie BeaumontMatter of fact - I’ve had the great fortune of interviewing the series Co-Creator, Executive Producer, Head Writer, Showrunner and Star Allan Hawco three times now.

The first time was in the backseat of the GTO - I kid you not (see), the second at the scenic water’s edge in St.John’s harbour (see) – on both of those occasions Hawco took a break from shooting to chat.  For this third time we met up at a Halifax hotel - I kid you not!

The setting was decidedly more relaxed – although for the NL fella – the schedule continues to be  non-stop.

Just now finishing up the post-production on Season 3, Hawco had been up very late the night before for a little live tweeting with fans during the show.  Then the early morning flight to YHZ so that he could talk to students at Dalhousie University and meet up with his ever-growing fan base at a local pub.  Just one of many such stops across the country he’s made and will continue to make in the future.

We talked about how grateful he is to those faithful members of the Republic, the #Doyletweeters, the CBC and the talented crew he has working with him behind the scenes.  And of course we talked about what’s still to come in this season as well as what’s up with Season 4… and so much more.

I was grateful for this third bit of Allan Hawco’s time, and as precious a commodity as it is these days – he was, as always, gracious and charming. Oh how I look forward to our fourth! SABS

  1. thanks for the interviews - love them

    I wanted to share that I have not followed another show in what 20-30 years and do R of D.

    Also I sent that comment to Allan in a Tweet - one of the ones your brought up to him. About opening the filming studio in the off season for tours for the many local fans and also for the throngs of new tourists coming because of the show. I now have heard his answer - makes sense but what a great thing it would have been !
