SAMANTHA HILL

as BELLA

Critics have already hailed her for helping theatre audiences fall in love with first love all over again. So it’s no surprise that Canadian-born thesp Samantha Hill remains so committed to her own first love that of performing on stage and in TV and film. (Thankfully, a childhood preoccupation with becoming a chiropractor was short-lived.) Sam’s breakout role on Broadway was Christine Daae in The Phantom of the Opera and her breakout role on film is happening now as Bella in THE EDITOR.

JASON McDONALD

You may recognize Jason as Captain Blake Starr from Father’s Day but this renaissance Canadian is also a hockey player, carpenter, army man, grip, sometimes-stunt-co-ordinator and friend. He built the stunt-steenbeck in The Editor. He also put the rocks on the gas pedals of the cars that dangerously sped off the cliff, and plays numerous background characters throughout. Fun fact: Jay’s basement was both Fuchman’s lair in Father’s Day and Rey’s editing suite in all the flashbacks.
