“I’m working on a Hallmark channel movie with Gail O’Grady (NYPD Blue/American Dreams) about breast cancer right now. As of yet the project has no title, but it is being directed by Anne Wheeler (Suddenly Naked). It has been fun! My character in the movie is named Brad Marshall, and I play husband to the lead character Emily (Gail O’Grady). Emily is diagnosed with breast cancer, and the story is about her personal trials and tribulations with the disease and her family’s struggles.”
The film, shot locally in Vancouver, is being produced by Randy Cheveldave and Suzanne Berger, and was listed on the British Film Commission website as “Untitled Mother’s Day Project” with a working title of Race For The Cure. (Filming wrapped on 8 February.)
