As Laura does each year, she submits a creation to benefit The Kidney Foundation and this year is nothing different. Last year Laura provided a lovely collage for the same charity. This time around it’s a sweet painting of what looks like her adorable little guy, Louie. If you feel in the charitable mood, please consider bidding. The links are in Laura’s embedded Instagram post.

Laura has just been added to the cast of the Amazon series THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE in the character of Hedda Parsons. I’m not really familiar with the show, but I’ll be boning up. The name sounds like a combination of the late gossip queens Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons. Congratulations Laura.

Alphas Alum to Castle

* Season 3 of Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle has added Laura Mennell (Alphas) as Hedda Parsons, the queen of the New York Nazi Reich scene, and Eijiro Ozaki (Heroes Reborn) as Japanese Admiral Inokuchi, our sister site Deadline reports. Both roles are recurring.

I’m not sure if this is on in the States, though I have a feeling it might be, but here in Canada we have VAN HELSING available for streaming. Please make sure you add it to your favourites so you can let Netflix know you appreciate them obtaining the show.

Laura’s episode of REAL DETECTIVE called Every Rose Has A Thorn aired on March 30th is ready for you. Here Laura played the real-life part of murderess Tammy Armstrong, a woman who murdered, then dismembered her boyfriend John E. Maier, then discarded his body. Yes, people like this actually exist. Laura did an admirable job of portraying what we call the dregs of society. I’m thinking of Farrah Fawcett who played child killer Diane Downes who shot her own children and injuring one. It’s hard to play these types of people because of the depravity of the crime, kudos to Laura for taking this on.

On this day I’d like to wish Laura the Happiest of Birthdays. She turns a lovely 37 today and here’s hoping she has a great one with good drink, good friends, a vegetarian cake and her little Louie. All my best.

This didn’t take long. Laura has just announced that they’ve started filming season two of VAN HELSING. Looks like we might not have to wait long to find out what kind of bad-assery Rebecca will be up to. Poor Vanessa.

Some news on VAN HELSING season two. According to Den of Geek, the show will return in late 2017, and like the first season will consist of thirteen episodes. More below.

Van Helsing Season 2 Release Date, Trailer, and More

During the long wait until Van Helsing season 2, stay tuned for the release date of the premiere, cast announcements, and other news!

Syfy has officially confirmed that Van Helsing season 2 will happen in 2017. Like the first, Van Helsing season 2 will run for 13 episodes. If you missed our reviews of season 1 and other news surrounding the show, you can catch up here. In the meantime, fans are anticipating a release date and news of added cast members.

“It’s with great pleasure and extreme excitement that all of us involved with Van Helsing receive the news of a pick-up for a second season, especially this early in our initial run,” said Showrunner Neil LaBute in a statement in October. “We have a wonderful and terrifying road ahead planned for Vanessa, her allies and her enemies. I think this is a world and a story that can be sustained for many years and I am inspired to do so thanks to Syfy’s obvious trust and commitment in the storytellers, cast and crew. The team is very thankful and ready to go—ready to get back on the road to Denver and to spill a lot of blood along the way.”

“We could not be more thrilled to receive a second season nod from our friends at Syfy,” added Chad Oakes, Executive Producer and Co-Chairman of Nomadic Pictures. “The incredibly talented cast, director, and writers, all lead by our fearless leader Neil LaBute, worked tirelessly to deliver us an amazing first season. We cannot wait to roll up our sleeves and continue this journey together.”

Here are the screencaps to Laura’s episode of the Canadian show TRAVELERS where she played the part of ADA PECKHAM. It was a one-off as I’m not sure if she will be making a return visit.

I’ve finally uploaded Laura’s final episode of VAN HELSING where she plays the part of Rebecca. It Begins was directed by actress Amanda Tapping (Col. Samantha Carter, Stargate: SG1) and finally saw the stand-off between Rebecca and Vanessa (Kelly Overton). And may I say what a low-blow there Rebecca in producing Vanessa’s daughter, Dylan (Hannah Cheramy). I’ve also uploaded two sets of HIRES stills for two episodes, updated an album with a promotional image, as well as updated two promotional images with HIRES versions. Also to let you know, none of the screencaps have been modified outside of their original format. The reason I do not edit them is because that is up to those who want to create your own artwork. By the way if you do create any with the screencaps/stills from the gallery, please don’t forget to credit back to the site. Also if you want to show off your work, I would love to add them to the Icon gallery for the site. So please use the Contact & Feedback form to submit.

I know I’m late to the dance with this bit of news, but I’ve been trying to update all my sites with new layouts and also I’ve had some personal things going on that have required my focus elsewhere. My partner was hospitalized with a bad virus that almost took her life. In the process of diagnosing her virus, they found that she also had a previously undiagnosed heart condition. She is to undergo surgery for it next week. So for the next little while I’ll be focused on her recovery from that. If anything on Laura does come up, I’ll try to post. I know I still have her TRAVELERS screencaps as well as her final VAN HELSING episode, plus some HQ stills I was able to get from the show. Please be patient as I get my backlog cleared.

Police Mom starts filming in Oak Bay

Oak Bay will soon have a new police officer on duty, but you won’t find Laura Mennell’s name on the district’s payroll or wearing its police department uniforms.

When the Surrey-born actor starts cruising the streets of Oak Bay Village, she’ll be doing it as the star of Police Mom, a made-for-TV movie that begins a 14-day shoot in the capital region today.

“It’s a woman-in-jeopardy project,” says producer Amar Balaggan, whose crime drama is being produced by Police Productions Inc. and Odyssey Media Inc. for Lifetime.

Mennell, best known for her work on the SyFy shows Alphas and Haven and movies including Flight 93 and Watchmen, plays an officer who cares for the daughter of a murder witness because the witness is hospitalized after being shot by the killer. While the police hunt down the drug dealer who pulled the trigger, he is hellbent on finding and eliminating the eyewitness.

“There will be shootouts, but no big car chases,” said production manager Rob Willey, the local musician and filmmaker whose own wilderness thriller, Dark Cove, has just been released on platforms including iTunes.

Police Mom has a supporting cast including Aaron Pearl (Bates Motel, The Killing), Marcus Rosner (Mistresses, Infidelity in Suburbia) and Naomi Simpson.

Greater Victoria will be passed off as Portland, Oregon, and other locales in the Pacific Northwest and California.

“Victoria has such beautiful locations that are hard to find elsewhere,” said Balaggan, whose producing credits include Justice Unleashed, Campus Caller and the teen vampire movie Forever 16.

The Vancouver-based filmmaker was also line producer on Suddenly, Uwe Boll’s 2013 thriller starring Ray Liotta, Erin Karpluk and Michael Paré about assassins who pose as U.S. Secret Service agents.

“We’d like to hire more people and train them because we hope to do other projects here,” said Balaggan, whose other potential local films would be produced through his own company.
