The Good Times Are Killing Me is nominated for four Geminis

The Good Times Are Killing Me” has been nominated for four Gemini awards.

Two years ago I co-starred in a movie of the week as a recovering alcoholic opposite Kelly Rowan. It was one of the most fun jobs I have ever had. And the icing on the cake is that “Good Times” has been nominated in four separate Gemini categories:

  • Best TV Movie
  • Best Sound in a Dramatic Program
  • Best Original Music Score for a Dramatic Program, Mini-Series or TV Movie
  • Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Supporting Role in a Dramatic Program or Mini-Series (for Vincent Walsh)

Rupert Graves, me, Vincent Walsh and Aaron Abrams. Awkward.

I am so chuffed for Vinnie – he really deserves this nomination and I really hope that he wins. And I’m just so damned proud of this movie – I’ve got everything crossed that we come out with all four awards!

You can watch Good Times here at the CTV website – enjoy my scary outfits and slightly retarded performance (at least I didn’t go full retard).


  1. What’s Rupert Graves like?


  2. He’s possibly the nicest, most fun actors I’ve ever worked with. Totally cool. Rupert Graves rules.

  4. Hi Greta

    Kelly was absolutely lovely – really fun to work with, an incredible actress and an amazing mom to her daughter Braelyn. As you know we had quite a few scenes together and it was wonderful to both watch her work and perform opposite her. She is very beautiful in real life and a kind and thoughtful person. I feel very lucky to have got to know her a little.

    Thanks for contacting me and for your kind words!

  5. Hi Marilla,

    I’ve been a fan of your comedy for a long while now and just recently watched this movie. Looked like you all had a blast out there! How was it working with the other actors? Any goofing off happen on the set?

    Good luck with the Geminis!

  6. Hi Regan

    Thanks so much! I have a fan!

    There was a lot of goofing around on set, mainly between me, Vincent Walsh, Rupert Graves and Ali Craig (the four of us from the UK and Ireland). We had a lot of group therapy sessions together in the movie and the director, John L’Ecuyer, let us improvise after the script ran out, so there was room for us to play. One of my favourite scenes is where me and Rupert are roleplaying the parts of Gary (Aaron)’s mum and dad in a therapy session. We had a basket of hats and Rupert wore a jaunty yarmulke for some of the takes. I had to bite my cheeks a lot to stop myself from laughing. It really was a wonderful atmosphere on set – the cast and crew were all lovely and it was a great experience.

  7. Marilla,

    Just wanted to say best wishes with the Gemini Awards tonight! I bet that’s exciting for all of you!


  8. Thanks, Bri! We didn’t win anything in the end, but it was great to be nominated!
