I first met Shawn Doyle in Lunenburg, NS, in the early fall of 2011.

Shawn Doyle as "Pete" in THE DISAPPEAREDHe was nearing the end of filming for THE DISAPPEARED just off the Nova Scotia coast. An all hours, action packed, 15 day schedule that no doubt had him completely focused, so I was grateful he made time to chat then. (video)

Grateful too that he stole away to talk again during the pre-premiere party for the film at this year's Atlantic Film Festival.

The perfectly suited Atlantic Gala film screening – would mark the world premier of THE DISAPPEARED and interestingly enough it would mark the first time Doyle and his co-stars, Billy Campbell, Neil Matheson, Gary Levert, Ryan Doucette and Brian Downey would see the movie themselves.

As was evident in my first interview with the NL born actor and again in the second one you see above – I'm a huge Shawn Doyle fan. His role as Pete in this movie was just as I'd imagined – AMAZING!

These days (and until mid October 2012) you can find Shawn in Northern Ontario. He, along with co-stars Emily Hampshire (Cosmopolis), Kris Holden-Ried (Lost Girl/The Listener) and Spanish actress Claudia Bassols are filming THE RETURNED - a movie about zombies and/or love or maybe... ah, best let Mr. Doyle explain it, as he does towards the end of our chat.

Regardless of its plot line – you can be certain there's another stellar performance on the way from that fella and we'll look forward to chatting with him about that one too. SABS
