NEW MEMBER PROFILE:
I recently moved from Israel to lovely Saint John, New Brunswick.
My hope is to have a good and productive life with my family here.
A month ago, I was able to get my acting feet wet in NB when I played the principal acting role in a da Vinci College student film.
In Israel I took many acting classes to hone my craft. The last class I took was the Chubbuck method that contributed greatly to my growth as an actress. I was active in Theatre, acted in film and had several guest appearances on Israeli television
I'm also a singer with many years of vocal training and live performances as well.
I am excited about being a new member of the Film Co-op and look forward to becoming more acquainted with the membership across New Brunswick as well as those working in the wider film community.
Please let Cat know if you want to connect with me!

CELEBRITY INTERVIEWS WITH PYTHON
On October 3rd I interviewed Belinda Balaski & Merrie Lynn Ross and had a blast listening to their stories and experiencing their friendship. I interviewed them both separately in 2015. Balaski was on in Sept. 2015 to discuss The Howling, Gremlins, Piranha, etc. & Merrie Lynn Ross came on in November 2015 thanks to Balaski’s recommendation to discuss one of my favorite Canadian films Class of 1984. Well they are featured together here for the 40th anniversary of Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw. I am not a fan of the film but I could not resist having them on together and it didn’t disappoint.
