New York can be stressful. As much as I love it, moving there two and a half years ago was jarring to my Canadian nervous system. I was accustomed to the quaintness of Queen's University, Toronto Beaches and Algonquin Park -- not the incessant honking and swearing and bumping into...

Yes, yes we are. Keep thinking that world -- but that's not all we are. We are talented, and disciplined and personable, and easy-going and really, just good at life. I love Canada and it's super nice people because while non-Canadians are thinking,...

Waiting at airport, I miss my trailer. This morning, I discovered a goat lives on the campground premise -- just when I thought it couldn't get better. Instead of befriending "la chevre," I swept the floors, scrubbed the dishes and said "Goodbye." Now, an eight-hour plane ride seems best spent...

This lifestyle feels very sustainable: non-stop film screenings, drinks and dinners, interesting people, and inspiring conversations. I ban any words resembling a complaint from leaving my lips. Although I admit I cursed the weather over the weekend. Saturday through Tuesday, it rained and poured, and rained some more.

On Friday night, I met four wonderful Brits, screenwriters, directors and production managers, also staying at the campground. They have a couple of films in the Short Corner (a marketplace for short films where you pick from a catalogue of about 2,000 films from around the world and view them...

I am a Canadian actress living in New York on my way to a trailer park in Cannes. From there, I will venture out to the glamorous Cannes Film Festival, hoping my heels don't get stuck in the grass. When they do, I will be asking the same question you...
