Shelagh's extended conversation with Gordon Pinsent

Listen

Gordon Pinsent's acting career has taken him from humble beginnings in Grand Falls, Newfoundland to Hollywood and back, most recently as a guest star on The Republic of Doyle.  He has worked in theatre, television, and film.  And as the title of his new memoir "Next" suggests, Gordon Pinsent doesn't plan on stopping any time soon.  

 

Shelagh spoke with Gordon Pinsent about his memoir in front of a live audience at the 2012 International Festival of Authors in Toronto.  Their conversation was by turns uproariously funny and deeply poignant.  It spanned Gordon's childhood in Grand Falls, his early yearning for the stage, his life in Hollywood, brushing shoulders with movie stars, and his intentions for his career going forward.  Gordon also shared stories about his relationship with his beloved wife Charmion King. 

It was an absolute pleasure and delight to be in the hall with Shelagh and Gordon.  We hope this extended conversation takes you there.
