Born: October 25, 1969 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Married to:
Jason Jones (13 October 2001 – present) (3 children)

[on adjusting to life in New York:] My apartment is the equivalent of one room in my Toronto home. Now I understand why New Yorkers are on the streets at all hours. People don’t want to stay inside for fear they’ll go crazy. I’ve also found television remotes to be an afterthought here. I don’t even have to get up from the couch to change channels. [September 29, 2003]

[on working with her husband Jason Jones on television productions] We met each other working in a children’s-theatre troupe and have continued to work together for almost twenty years. He’s good at pushing comedy beyond my comfort zone, and I’m good at reining him in. Having children helps because they do not care about our work at all.

Being on Twitter and social media, you obviously get to see a lot more of what people are thinking of you and of your show.

I started on Neighbours (1985) when I was 14. It’s crazy to think now that I had such a bizarre adolescence.

David and I got cut out the editing process on that. We were able to affect it more than not. We sent in our notes, we were able to see cuts. We weren’t allowed to see dailies and we weren’t allowed to sit in the editing room and just work.

Happy Birthday: Andrew Scott

Born: October 21, 1976 in Dublin, Ireland

[Speaking about how he learned a Russian accent for Legacy, and his homosexuality] There isn’t a huge amount of footage of Russians speaking English as a second language, so I started looking at Vladimir Putin videos on YouTube. But then Putin introduced anti-gay legislation this summer – so, being a gay person, I switched to Rudolf Nureyev videos instead. It was another Nureyev defection of sorts!

I like auditioning! A lot of people hate it, but I like it. Especially like right now, I’m not shooting a show so you get to act. You get to do that stuff, kind of treat everyone as ‘All right, throw the paint against the wall and see what I can do with this and what people say.’ I think it’s a great mental workout because you have to ready something, learn something fast. It’s good to stay on your toes and keep sharp if you’re auditioning. [interview with Backstage Magazine, June, 2013]

Happy Birthday: Snoop Dogg

Shante Taylor (12 June 1997 – present) (3 children)

I want to write, direct, produce, but in steps. I want to take steps. I don’t want to just jump in because I sold a lot of records and just feel like I can jump into the movie world. Naw, I want to learn the movie world like I learned the music world.

I used to be focused on being the dopest rapper in the game, and then once that became what I was, I wanted something different, and I wanted to become the best businessman in the game. I wanted to learn how to master the business like I mastered the rap.
