Real Romance on the Set of Arctic Air

I was not complaining when film star Adam Beach was cast in the lead role of Bobby Martin, Arctic Air's playboy venture capitalist. He's gorgeous, talented, his smile is infectious and it's been fun to watch him play the field with an array of beautiful women on the show (while ultimately rooting for him to end up with old flame Krista Ivarson, played by Pascale Hutton). 

But in real life, Adam was taken before the show even started shooting. He and girlfriend Leah Gibson, who plays Candi Lussier (Bobby's first conquest upon returning to Yellowknife) met during the first every reading of the script. They've been going strong ever since.

Here's what she had to say about their first meeting and the man who's won her heart - and ours...




And, since I'm a fan of theirs (and of love!), I couldn't help but ask them for a little update on their relationship at the Genies in our CBC Live backstage lounge... 



Watch the season finale of Arctic Air tonight at 9pm on CBC TV.
