We had the pleasure of chatting with fellow Canadian and actress Erica Durance at the 2013 Lakeshorts International Short Film Festival about her interest in directing and about Saving Hope Season 2.
Durance was born in Calgary, Alberta, and is best known for her role in CW’s Smallville as Lois Lane. She began her role at the start of season 4, as a frequent guest star, before being promoted to a series regular from Season 5. She remained in the role until the conclusion of the series in 2011, concluding 7 great years with the show.
Since 2012, she has taken on a lead role in supernatural medical drama Saving Hope, playing the role of Dr. Alex Reid. The series was created by Malcolm MacRury & Morwyn Brebner, two well known TV creators. MacRury had co-created Republic of Doyle for CBC – along with Allan Hawco and Perry Chafe – while Brebner was responsible for Rookie Blue on Global. Durance also serves as a producer for the show in addition to her acting role.
She has numerous credits to her name, including performances in shows such as Stargate SG-1, Charlie’s Angels, Harry’s Law and Andromeda.
Saving Hope can be seen on Saturdays at 9pm ET on CTV Two.
