Cool Conversations
With George Froehlich
Monday, April 2, 2018


We apologize. Last week we told you there would be no newsletter on Monday, April 2 because of the Easter holidays. That should have been Friday, March 30.
What a shocker. The madness of it all. A Facebook executive wrote an explosive memo saying it did not matter if people got killed and now he says he did not mean it. What a liar and how disgusting can you get.
Another shocker. Canadians are pissed off at having to pay those high internet prices. But they don’t do anything about, even though cheaper options are available.
This you gotta love. You buy a bag of those crispy, tasty chips. But you can’t eat them all and that means the rest of them will lose that crispiness. What a bummer. But there is a simple way for them to stay crispy.

LAUREN CAMPBELL – THE MIND OF AN ACTOR – CONSTANT REJECTION, FINDING TRUTH IN EVERY MOMENT, A MESMERIZING PRESENCE, ONE YEAR AGO IT ALL CHANGED, ACTING AND NOT GETTING PAID, NOT TRYING TO IMPRESS EVERYONE
Lauren Campbell always has had a creative bent to her. At the tender age of four she started dancing. In her late teens she went to acting school. And today at age 32 she still is acting even though she does not get paid for most of her work.
She has the bug – that driving passion to be that consummate actor, no matter the odds she is facing.
Amy Starkey, a director and actor, who has worked with Campbell says this of her:
“…she constantly amazes me with her commitment to craft and character. She approaches her work with no ego, simply doing what needs to be done. And the result is an ability to find the truth in every moment. She is mesmerizing on screen, and soon, everyone is going to know it.”
Campbell has performed a vast array of roles in theatre productions in Vancouver and throughout Metro Vancouver. She has TV and film credits from productions in both Canada and the US. In 2015, she was awarded Best Female Actor at the Theatre B.C. North Shore Zone Festival for her portray of Roberta in John Patrick Shanley’s, Danny And The Deep Blue Sea.
