Over the past few months I have become a fan of Once Upon A Time which, I am sad to say is on its final season.
I was over the moon to discover that one of the actors was born in the town where I live and the same hospital where my own son was born, Luton in Bedfordshire. The actor....none other than Christopher Gauthier who's role as the affable, loyal yet bumbling William Smee has been an absolute joy to watch. Chris has also appeared as a chef in A Town Called Eureka, as the incredibly sinister Toyman in Smallville as well as other roles in Hallmark movies, When Calls The Heart and A Series of Unfortunate Events.
So does this Vancouver based actor miss the English way of life. There was only one way I could think of....ask him.
To my delight Chris not only gave me a fantastic interview which is in The Luton News but as an added extra, a quick fire Q&A which I can publish exclusively here on my blog!
