Interview: Julia Benson


When you say the name Julia Benson, the first thing that will probably pop in your head is the series SGU Stargate Universe. Julia played the tough 2nd Lt. Vanessa James on the popular science fiction series for several seasons. She won the Leo award in 2010 for her work on the series.

There is much more to the Canadian born actress then SGU Stargate Universe. She has trained in ballet, worked in the theater and has had several roles on television and film.

Currently she plays Jeri Drake on the hit Hallmark Channel original series Cedar Cove. Jeri is the ex-wife of Jack Griffith. Although their marriage was brief, she was with him during the darkest period of his alcoholism.

Julia sits down to discuss becoming part of the series, if Jeri is still in love with Jack and advice she would give to up and coming actors.

Pop Culture Principle – When you were first approached about joining Cedar Cove, had you watched the show before?

Julia Benson – I had never actually seen the show, but knowing that it shot in Vancouver, I had auditioned a couple of times. We are always familiar with the stuff that shoots here so I was aware of it, but hadn’t seen it yet.

Interview - Pascale Hutton


Canadian born actress Pascale Hutton is definitely carving out her place in Hollywood. The Gemini and Leo award winning actress has spent the last several years building an impressive resume in film and television. She’s had memorable roles on hit shows such as Sanctuary, Flashpoint and Intelligence. She has also had guest appearances on series such as Supernatural, Fringe and Royal Pains.

Pascale starred as Krista Ivarson on the hit Canadian series Arctic Air which ran three seasons on the CBC network. On the big screen she’s starred in films such as Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed, A Simple Curve and The Art of War II: Betrayal.

A graduate of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, she currently stars on the hit Hallmark series When Calls The Heart playing the somewhat misunderstood Rosemary LeVeaux. Pascale was kind enough to sit down with us to talk about her current series, playing strong, independent characters and what she likes to do to relax.

Pop Culture Principle - You recently worked on When Calls the Heart. How was that experience?

Pascale Hutton – It was great. I love that character so much. It’s very different from what I normally play. I had just wrapped season three of Arctic Air where I play a very strong, forthright female character. She is very confident, very decisive and keeps her emotions very close to her heart. So, to go from that to When Calls The Heart which is so light and full and the character is larger than life was such a welcome change. You know, you play the same types of characters for a while it’s fun to shake things up and that is what this character was for me on When Calls the Heart.

CW announces premiere of The Carrie Diaries

The CW today announced that the new 1980s-era drama, THE CARRIE DIARIES, will have its series premiere on Monday, January 14 (8:00-9:00p.m. ET). That same night, 90210 will slide to its new 9:00-10:00 p.m. timeslot on Monday. The week of January 14 will also see the majority of The CW’s primetime series return from the holiday break with all-new original episodes. THE CARRIE DIARIES takes place in 1984, where life is not easy for 16-year-old Carrie Bradshaw. Since their mother passed away, Carrie’s younger sister Dorritt is more rebellious than ever, and their father Tom is overwhelmed with the responsibility of suddenly having to care for two teenage girls on his own. Carrie’s friends – sweet, geeky Mouse, sarcastic and self-assured Maggie and sensitive Walt – make life bearable, but a suburban life in Connecticut isn’t doing much to take her mind off her troubles. And even though the arrival of a sexy new transfer student named Sebastian brings some excitement to Carrie’s world, she is struggling to move on from her grief. So when Tom offers Carrie the chance to intern at a law firm in Manhattan, she leaps at the chance. Carrie’s eyes are opened wide at the glamour and grit of New York City – and when she meets Larissa, the style editor for Interview magazine, she’s inspired by the club culture and unique individuals that make up Larissa’s world. Carrie’s friends and family may have a big place in her heart, but she’s fallen in love for the first time with the most important man in her life – Manhattan. The series stars AnnaSophia Robb (“Soul Surfer”) as Carrie Bradshaw; Stefania Owen (“Running Wilde,” “The Lovely Bones”) as Dorrit Bradshaw; Ellen Wong (“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” “Combat Hospital”) as Mouse; Katie Findlay (“The Killing,” “SGU Stargate Universe”) as Maggie; Chloe Bridges (“90210”) as Donna; Austin Butler (“Switched at Birth,” “Life Unexpected”) as Sebastian; Brendan Dooling (“An Elf’s Story: The Elf on the Shelf”) as Walt; Freema Agyeman (“Doctor Who,” “Law & Order: UK”) as Larissa and Matt Letscher (“Brothers and Sisters,” “Entourage”) as Tom. Based on the novels by Candace Bushnell, THE CARRIE DIARIES is from Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, in association with Fake Empire, with executive producers Josh Schwartz (“Hart of Dixie,” “Gossip Girl”), Stephanie Savage (“Hart of Dixie,” “Gossip Girl”), Len Goldstein (“Hart of Dixie”) Amy B. Harris (“Gossip Girl”) and Candace Bushnell.
