Shooting Le Siège - The Cast

2017-5-07

 

My cast is stellar. We have one of Québec’s hottest actors, Alexandre Goyette, playing the ringleader who sets this all in motion. Gilles Renaud, a veteran actor with stellar skills, plays the union leader who gets caught up with the hostages. Denise Bouchard plays a negotiator with the RCMP who has to try to de-escalate the situation and save both the hostages and the workers, many of whom she knows. Denise and I worked on Le Clan together, along with many of the New Brunswick actors: Marc Lamontagne, Matthiew K Williston, Diane Losier, André Roy and many others who are really bringing their A-game every day to set.

 

For me, it’s a balancing act of shooting 9, 10, or 12 scenes one day, in a 10-hour workday, every day. The pace is relentless, and yet the expectation is to make it look like the best series on television. And that’s what we intend to deliver. That’s where the prep, the rehearsals, the relationships with my cast and team really pay off. We make it happen under pressure, every day, one hour at a time, one scene at a time. It takes focus, passion. And a little luck.

 

Tonight is our first night shoot. 6PM to 6 AM. The graveyard shift. Did I mention we have an espresso machine in the kitchen?

 

Stay tuned…
