|Hello there and welcome back... so it's Dec 12 and still no official word on The 4400.... Thank you for all your messages of support on the Myspace site, I really appreciate it and I'm sure Ira and Scottie and the gang really appreciate all your petitions! YAY Flo in France! You rock! Although we might normally have had our official pick up by November, this is not a 'normal' time.... If you've not heard, there is an humungous writers strike going on in America right now. For info you can check out: http://www.wga.org/ |
Unfortunately, this spells for a rocky time in Hollywood and beyond. The ripple effect has reached Promise City, that's for sure. With no new episodes being ordered, they are selling off our costumes and dismantling the sets at our studio home in Vancouver BC. The cast and crew are all pretty bummed to say the least... but hay, never say die! Look what happened with "Dead Again"... that show was officially cancelled and still made a comeback.... So watch this space!
If the show does not go ahead into a 5th season, I will be so sad to say goodbye! I cannot begin to tell you what an amazing experience it has been. From the first meeting with Maira, Scottie and Ira in a room on Pico all those moons ago... and then being asked back to read with Joely (who was already cast as Tom Baldwin)... and then being directed by the wonderful Yves Simmoneau at the final screentest-there in a boardroom with 20 suits! Well, it surely has been one hell-of-a-heavenly ride! I will miss the crew so terribly- too many to name here- and Hershal will miss all his pals too. My bod will probably never be the same without the incredible training I've had with "Miss D" (Danielle Steiner!)... I'm already a bootcamp desperado- and I've not even had Christmas pudding!! So I've just signed to a new trainer here in Oz! Yes, Chief is whopping my a#% into serious shape....OOUUUCH! Seriously though, I'm finding it hard to keep to the subject: possibly having to bid The 4400 farewell...It's too scary!! What will I do without my buddy Joel!? We have come through so much together. I've so enjoyed witnessing his level of commitment to the scripts and to his character- he's a true inspiration... and what about lovely Pattie and his adventures and his childlike awe at everything around him and Aussie Jen with her off-the-set aussie banter and Megalyn with the dancing eyes and the nutty Ninja and the ever gracious and graceful Ali and the wicked Billy C and the hilarious Jeffrey Combes and sweet Sommer and the gorgeous and loyal Richard Kahan and the hotto potoootie Kaj, and the chick we all miss terribly again- the one and only Sam Farris! This is only a little of the cast.... but they are really like family to me- with Scottie and Ira and Maira as our elders and darling Josie Ochej, our sister girl.... Don't get me started! Seriously, "don't even get me started"...
In the meantime, I'm keeping this shorter than usual as I'm taking Hersh to the dog beach - it's low tide and it also looks fit to rain... so, one way or another we're going to get wet!
I want to thank you for stopping by my site and sharing the music and paintings - I just do them because I just love to do them and they are fun to share...
And I want to wish you the happiest of Christmases and Holidays! May it be one filled with love, friendship and a feeling of belonging. Cheers big ears!
