Colm Feore is one of North America’s top classically trained actors. He’s appeared on stages around the world, on the big screen and television.
In the new Netflix series “Umbrella Academy” Feore plays Sir Reginald Hargreeves who adopts seven babies with miraculous powers and teaches them to be superheroes.
Boasting an all-star cast including fellow Canadian Ellen Page, Mary J Blige, Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan and Kate Walsh, “Umbrella Academy” is receiving rave reviews.
The Los Angeles Times says: ‘“The Umbrella Academy” stands out among the countless other superhero series splashed across billboards and your viewing queues.’
The Boston Globe review includes this line “an imaginatively filmed show that follows no formula as it takes on a messed-up family and the roots of trauma.”
In our podcast, we discuss Feore’s stage work on Broadway with Denzel Washington, his work on the film “The Chronicles of Riddick,” with Judi Dench and Vin Diesel and his work at the Stratford Festival.
Colm is married to the very successful director/choreographer Donna Feore, so naturally, I asked him how they manage to have a happy marriage and raise their children while working in locations around the world. Don’t miss my podcast with Donna Feore.

In the podcast with Bethany Joy Lenz, we cover everything from her appearances on the daytime soap “Guiding Light” to “One Tree Hill” and her role in “Grey’s Anatomy.”
She opens up about the time she auditioned for “Once” on Broadway, it didn’t go well, and a new Broadway musical she’s written.
In this podcast with Bethany Joy Lenz we also discuss her role in the movie “Snowed Inn Christmas” premiering on Lifetime, Saturday, December 16 at 8 pm.
Bethany Joy Lenz in Snowed Inn Christmas
The Los Angeles Times and the Detroit Free Press picked “Snowed Inn Christmas” as a TV highlight of the week with the latter adding it’s a “feel-good movie… about a woman (Bethany Joy Lenz) and man (Andrew Walker), who have nothing in common – until they’re called upon to help save the historic town inn located in Santa Claus, Indiana.”
Snowed Inn Christmas with Andrew Walker and Bethany Joy Lenz
Lenz plays a button-down journalist who, like her character in “One Tree Hill,” is smart and knows who she is – at least until she gets trapped on assignment with a colleague she’s competing with to save her job.
The setting, a gorgeous turn of the century Victorian home in Santa Claus, Indiana (a real town), provides a romantic and mysterious backdrop where the journalists discover the stories of their lives.
