BELLEVUE behind the scenes Shawn Doyle Billy MacLellan et alAfter 10 years of celebrating Canada's East Coast it's fair to say I've met a ton of talented folks - all of them wonderful in their own way. Now while I'd never go so are as listing my most favourite among those fantastic folks  - I will gladly confirm if I ever did make such a list - Billy MacLellan and Shawn Doyle would rank right up there!!!

Shawn's already been kind enough to send me his own Happy 10th Celebrity Salute so please click here to see that and read my great gratitude for all of his support over the years.

As for Billy MacLellan - I can still remember the day our mutual friend Kelley Edwards emailed me with a note about her friend Billy from Cape Breton and how talented he was and how I should do a feature on him - and boy was she right.

Since then Billy's projects have given us a ton to celebrate - with TV roles in everything from REPUBLIC OF DOYLE and MURDOCH MYSTERIES, to BELLEVUE, CAUGHT, DIGGSTOWN and more.  Then there's his movie work in films like MAUDIE, AWAY HOME, GOALIE and that oh so creepy THE SILENCE to name a few.  Right now we're just waiting for more news on his exciting new film project CAMP TIPSY - so stay tuned there!

In addition to covering all this talented turns on the big and small screens - Billy's be very kind to share family recipes and tons of ways to enjoy his homeland through his COOL PEOPLE PROFILE, and on and on the list goes of great ways he's supported our East Coast Celebration here on SEA AND BE SCENE.

Most recently that included kicking off the New Year for a very special (and funny) edition of SEA AND BE SCENE... And HEARD - which you can listen to here.

We'll always be grateful for his time and attention, for his fierce pride of the East Coast, and for his generosity of spirit when it comes to all things SEA AND BE SCENE!!!

Thank you Billy MacLellan (and you too Shawn Doyle) for making this HAPPY 10th Celebration our happiest birthday yet!
