Exclusive Interview: Connor Price Goes to War in X COMPANY

Connor price

Imagine you’re a teenage boy. Life is confusing enough as it is. It doesn’t help that your parents still assign you to a curfew. The world is this giant, revolving planet. But you have no idea where you belong in it and what your role is. All you know is that you’ve got a knack for playing with technology — a deadly one at that.

Hold up! Let’s raise the pressure to its maximum limit. You’re now in the midst of the deadliest war in human history; a military man recruits you to be a spy; and you find yourself using your secret science experiments but on a more grand international scale. I know what you’re thinking: What did I get myself into? This is exactly the overwhelming scenario that Connor Price’s Harry James finds himself facing on CBC’s new series X COMPANY. [Read more…]

Move Over Agent Carter: ORPHAN BLACK’s Evelyne Brochu Talks About Leading a Team of Spies on CBC’s X COMPANY

VKF_4763

When I say “‘40s female secret agents in pop culture,” the first names that will likely come to your mind are Peggy Carter and Bridget von Hammersmark. But with CBC’s new World War II-set spy series, X COMPANY, the name Aurora Luft may become equally as synonymous in this league of characters inspired by the true stories of women who boldly defied traditional gender norms of their time.

Played by ORPHAN BLACK star Evelyne Brochu, Luft is a half German-Jewish, half French-Canadian journalist who is recruited to join the Allies’ top-secret espionage organization based at Camp X, a real-life training camp — located between Whitby and Oshawa on the shores of Lake Ontario — that trained British, American and Canadian spies.

Jenna Kloner is a force to be reckoned with in the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR kitchen — and on the golf course.

When she isn’t whipping up restaurant-worthy meals in her family’s New York City home, the culinary whiz kid enjoys hitting up the greens with her father and brother.

“I am really into golf,” she reveals in an exclusive interview with TheTVPage.com.

“It is just a whole family thing.  It is a really great way for me and my family to spend time together.  And I am not that bad at it either!”

Jenna — and eighth grader from New York City — is one of 19 culinary cuties featured on the third season of chef Gordon Ramsay’s kiddie cooking competition.

“Ever since I was little, I was always watching cooking shows and saying “Why don’t they have one for kids?’” she says. 

“I swear I said that!  And I was like, ‘I just want to grow up so I can be on one of those.”   Then I saw MASTERCHEF JUNIOR, so I found the casting website and I signed up.”

Here’s a few more things Jenna had to share… [Read more…]

Exclusive: Kathleen Rose Perkins Contemplates Her ‘Episodic’ Strokes of Luck

kathleen-rose-perkins-01

In the Matt LeBlanc-fronted “Episodes,” the real star is Kathleen Rose Perkins.

As Carol Rance, head of network programming at the fictitious, unnamed network that airs “Pucks,” the show within a show starring LeBlanc, Perkins portrays a high energy yes man who never seems to land a win. In season four of the Showtime satire (premiering Sunday at 10:30 p.m.), Carol comes no closer to landing her dream gig as head of the network. In fact, she’s passed over for another woman, Helen Bash (Andrea Savage), who may or may not have a bone to pick with her.

I spoke with Ms. Perkins earlier this afternoon about the season she calls the best one yet. “It’s… messier,” she told me. We also spoke about some of her recent film roles. [Read more…]

It’s the ultimate ‘American Idol’ makeover!

Jaidah Christina Davila — who competed in the “male” category under the name Josh JDA back in season 12 — has successfully completed her transition into becoming a woman.

She even has a crisp new U.S. Social Security card to prove it.

“I don’t even recognize the person that I used to be on ‘Idol,’” the singer said in an interview with TheTVPage.com.

“I am not just cross-dressing anymore.”

“I am not this gay, feminine boy. I am actually now on hormone replacement therapy. I have been for a year and a half.” [Read more…]

Sobriety, cancer, and teenage pregnancy. Those were just a few of the issues tackled on season one of “Mom.”

In season two of the hit CBS sitcom (Thursdays at 8:30/7:30c), things aren’t getting any less complicated as Violet and Christy work through their strained mother-daughter relationship. In tomorrow night’s fall finale, Christy and Bonnie join Violet in therapy, and family secrets are revealed.

Earlier this week, I spoke exclusively with the 17-year-old Sadie Calvano about her role as Violet, and what it’s like to play a flawed person in a series dependent on the limitations of its characters. We also spoke about some of her favorite on-set moments, and the dream it has been to perform in front of a live studio audience. [Read more…]
