Fred Ewanuick


Fred: "I've always been a fan of
The Twilight Zone".

Conducted by Phil Davies Brown
June 2nd, 2006

Fred Ewanuick is a familiar face to fans of Canadian lensed TV shows, having ammassed appearances in an impressive number of TV shows, such as Tru Calling and The Twilight Zone.

This versatile actor caught up with me to chit chat about his life as an actor/genre fan.

How did you get into acting?
I took Acting all through High School and College. I didn't do so well though. I got asked to leave the Theatre Program I was in at College. So, acting didn't really look like it was going to pan out for me. I got a job at a Science Center here in Vancouver; they were looking for people to do Science shows for School groups. Because I had the Theatre Program on my resume, I got the gig. It turned out to be great fun, and through one of the guy's I did the show's with, I hooked up with an acting coach. She's whipped me into shape, got me Interested in Acting again.

You have previously appeared in The Twilight Zone, was that fun to work on?
It was a lot of fun. I've always been a fan of The Twilight Zone. I watched the old ones all the time when I was a kid. The one with William Shatner on the plane, with the gremlin, is a classic.


Fred: "You don't feel like as much of a puppet in film as you do in TV".

Are you a fan of horror and sci-fi and if so, what are some of the shows or movies you enjoy watching?
Yeah, I like horror and Sci-Fi. Star Wars was huge for me when I was a kid. I'm a big fan of the old stop motion movies too. Sinbad and Clash of the Titans are right up there. And, I know it's not really a Horror film, but Shawn of the Dead might be the best Zombie movie of all time. I watch that film when ever I need a good laugh. Never fails.

Why do you think genre shows are so popular amongst audiences?
Getting freaked out is fun.

You worked on 2 episodes of Tru Calling. What was Eliza Dushku like on set?
Eliza was great to work with. I was only there for the two episodes, just a bit player really, but she really made me feel at home on the set.

What are the main differences for you between TV and Film roles in terms of acting? Is one medium harder to work in than the other?
I don't think one is any harder than the other. Just different. TV moves fast, you don't get to many kicks at it, and there isn't as much control or input into you character. Where as in film, there is more of a combined effort between the director and the actor to create the character. You don't feel like as much of a puppet in film as you do in TV.


Fred: "What ever it is, I don't care, it's great".

Canada seems like such a beautiful place, do you think the aesthetics of Toronto, Vancouver and other parts of the country play a big part in its popularity with producers looking for a cheap place to make their show or shoot their movie?
The lower dollar in Canada is probably the main reason they come up here to shoot. The fact that they can make our cities look like what ever American city they want it to be is an added bonus for them. And our crews up here are top notch. What ever it is, I don't care, it's great. Even better, is that now our own industry is starting to get stronger, and maybe in an indirect way the American shows coming up here has helped with that.

Where do you feel your future lies TV, Film or both?
I hope both. To have the regularity of TV, and be able to do a few films in the off season would be a dream. TV, Film, doesn't matter to me, as long as I get to work, and play interesting characters, thatís all that matters.

You recently completed a role in Black Eyed Dog which has a great cast. Was the film fun to shoot?
It was a fantastic cast. Sonya Salomaa is amazing in it. Working with her and Brenda Fletcher was one of the highlights of my career. It was also the second time I got to work with director Pierre Gang, a wonderful film maker. One of Canada's best.

What will you be working on next?
I start work on the fourth season of Corner Gas at the end of May. Corner Gas is a series here in Canada that runs on CTV. I play the Dumb guy. Very Fun.


"Thank you ever so much for taking part in this interview Fred.
And we wish you the very best of luck in the future."
