Some future blog stuff, and congratulations to Tatiana!

(Almost) every Monday I've given you the opportunity to pose a question to a different Heartland actor. This has proven to be so successful that I'm going to expand this to include crew members as well! Over the next few weeks expect to be able to question some of the talented people behind the camera as well as those you see performing in front of it. Click through for more!

And speaking of "behind the camera," I get a lot of comments from people who want to know more about the production itself (beyond what they see on television) so that's something else I'm going to do here - show you more "behind the scenes" photos and explain what goes into the making of Heartland, so everyone gets a peek into what it takes to make a television series. Watch for it in the near future!

I'm also going to be getting more information on where Heartland is playing around the world and I'll update that information here whenever I find out something new. The "www" does stand for "world wide web" after all, and Heartland is now being shown and is popular in several countries, with more to come!

But that's not all!!! I other have some other bloggy treats for you coming up in the very near future, but you'll have to wait to find out what they are...

Now, as to what's going to be on CBC Television at 7:00pm this Sunday:

As most of you know, because of this weekend's Super Bowl and the following three weekends covering the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, there are going to be no new episodes of Heartland until March 7. So this Sunday will be a rerun of Episode 302 - "Little Secrets". This is the episode where Amy finds herself caught in the middle of a family crisis when she tries to help a girl and her horse recover from what appears to be a freak accident. If you missed it on TV when it first ran last October here is your chance to catch it!

And finally, congratulations to Tatiana Maslany, who has a recurring role as Kit Bailey on Heartland.

Tatiana was the only Canadian to win a prize at the recent Sundance Film Festival in the United States. She won the Special Jury Prize for Breakout Performance in World Cinema for her role in the film Grown Up Movie Star. This is a major accomplishment for Tat, for last year's winner of the same award was Carey Mulligan for her role as a young schoolgirl in An Education. Earlier this week Mulligan received an Oscar nomination for the same performance.

Tatiana also appeared on Being Erica's second season and last year she won a Gemini Award for her performance in an episode of Flashpoint.

So although some of you don't care much for Kit, don't hold it against Tatiana, who everyone loves on set. She's a really talented actress, and it's awesome to see her get recognized at Sundance!
