So you can tweet in people between the questions like crazy #AskHeartland we have people with mics on the side in the aisles here so they’re going to be running put your hands up I’m gonna stop very frequently for your questions we’re also kind of a big chat with the cast are they ready? They’re here.. Great! are you guys ready to come up and talk about this is awesome season finale episode? I’m ready Ok let’s give them a big round of applause. Amber Marshall why don’t you come up here? Come on up yeah it’s time it’s time to chat! Graham Wardle – you’re right behind her. Alisha, Alisha Newton coming on up. Everyone’s coming up guys you got to get out of your seats Michelle Morgan, Shaun Johnston, Chris Potter Yeah right here i’m gonna take this one and then you can go right after as you please congratulations guys alright. I’m great I’m on this side… So, Shaun, I have to tell you there was a lot of tweeting, is it always like this? There was a lot of tweeting from women about you during this episode yes for real there was a one-woman asked how much are you like your character and then said I think I love him check the hashtag #AskHeartland – it’s right there like 23 minutes ago. I think a lot of people refer to Tim as “Jack” on Twitter Oh don’t worry Chris I have some interesting questions for you as well so let’s a haha Do you hear that? Someone just said, “That was awesome guys” Congratulations everyone! Maybe the first thing you guys can tell us is how is it different to shoot a wedding episode after spending eight seasons together you seem.. you know you come off as such a family on television and when we see you in real life what is it like to make a wedding episode together? I think amber should answer that …testing… This was… I really really enjoyed this episode. I have to say. That ending was awesome. I was sitting there and I was just like “oh we did this?” “This is great” I don’t know i think that this has been so rewarding for not only all of you to see the eight years of all of our development, and our character development but to have this kind of perfectly wrapped up present given to us all I think it’s been it’s been really a quite emotional journey too and I found that this episode was very unique for me to film because it was different than anything I’ve ever done and I really really enjoyed the final product. Really quickly because everyone had some great emotional scenes in this some fun some love stuff right you finally got the “I love you”. She kept you hanging. Has that ever happened to anyone in real-life? You give the “I love you” and then… nothing Everyday. Alisha was your favourite part of the episode? That was the number one question so far on social media by the way “What was your favourite part of this episode?” That’s what everyone was asking for all of you The ending. Yeah I really enjoy the ending it was really fun to film and I’m a big fan of liberty and that kind of thing and a lot of that scene Liberty, like horsemanship was involved so i really enjoyed filming and yeah it looked really cool. It looked amazing i was a [Graham] You did a great job. Thank you. That’s the first Heartland episode I’ve ever watched [Chris] Only once… Ok… You know watching Michelle get married in season (mumbles on purpose) and that was a beautiful moment for me and seeing Amy get married in this episode was as equally emotional for me as a viewer as it was as Jack being a part of the wedding [Amber] Shaun was crying, I was sitting beside him. He was crying through most of the episode. [Shaun] Was not! [Amber] Yes, he was. [Shaun] So I think of Michelle and Amber as the daughter maybe that I never had in my own life and I love having… I love having spent all this this time with with them and getting to know them intimately like we do like actors are needing to do you know… a program like this and so watching Michelle and amber get married i think as their characters [Amber] And in real life… yeah but you know the the Heartland marriage really for me solidifies the reason that we make the show and it’s to bond families and it’s to treat each other with respect and with love and commitment and I think that we’ve done a pretty good job of that and I want to thank these two girls for being my daughters. [Jamey] Chris, what was your favourite part? [Chris] Well first of all I guess I’ve been doing this a long time, Shaun has too and one way or another we’ve all been performers but I gotta say it makes you feel pretty special to be up here being asked questions by people who really are responsible for putting us up here and somebody that we should really thank is Heather Conkie and when you ask the question about well there are more people than that but I can say that when you ask the question about wedding you know we all weren’t well we were all involved in planning Amber’s wedding… Amber was involved Shaun might have been I don’t know but but we were all part of Amber’s wedding and it in a small way we’re all part of of Heather’s daughter’s wedding and I think the magic combination of Dean Bennett’s direction and Amber and Heather having gone through this really gave a ton of value to that last episode it was so intertwined with what was happening in the lives of our cast members and so on so that was a real benefit. So Heather we we really want to thank her she’s always lying in the weeds she’s here now Heather Conkie everyone watch your For those of you who don’t know Heather Conkie is the Heartland showrunner and she is responsible for the vision of the show and a lot of the writing yeah and Dean Bennett who did just an exceptional job and is always saddled with that last well I will call it the “Heather episodes” that require and well and we’re always battling the light at that time of year unpredictable weather hours, children’s hours, animals… animals are very patient but anyway so it’s a combination of things. Jamie Paul rock came aboard as a producer on this show The show has really picked up with Jamie I really we we owe a lot to his his work and of course our producers Jordy and Tom and of course the guy that brought the whole thing to CBC, the mastermind, Michael Weinberg They’re all here tonight so that’s all I have to say but i’d like to thank all of them and all the the cast feel very lucky So something that would be great for them to answer and you know what we’re going to take questions from the audience in just a second so if you can start putting your hands up someone will be ready to take you next I know Mackenzie Maxton came to me earlier today so she definitely wants to get a question in and what’s gonna happen in season 9 now? That was another big question. I know that the executive production team you just mentioned will probably have the best idea of that Michelle you seem to have an inkling? [Michelle] Oh, we don’t know what’s gonna happen next season. [Jamey] Exactly but what would you like to see? [Michelle] Well and.. I can also answer the first question then because my favorite part of this episode echo to watch was that last scene with you Alisha that was gorgeous and I cried but to film my favourite parts were that it was that last seen with me and Gabe when we were talking about our wedding because i think that that’s a beautiful marriage between Lou and Peter and I like that little bit of hope there at the end. So we’ll see what happens next season. You never know but we we don’t know we should ask Heather what’s going happen next season? [Jamey] Michelle I have a funny question for you from social media it’s from “Erin Loves HL” Michelle are you a control freak like Lou sometimes? [Michelle] We should ask my parents that, they’re up there. Uhm…no. Sometimes? [Chris] Classic answer of a person with that problem. [Michelle] I’m not as organized as her that’s for sure [Jamey] Fair enough… Hey Graham, what was your favourite part of this episode? [Graham] That blue suit Kerry James and I had a lot of fun shooting that scene. I wish her wore that suit wouldn’t that be awesome? If wore that suit like if we couldn’t find the other one? find the other one and then I had to get his and he wore the blue one. [Chris] Without the shirt, right girls? [Michelle] Kerry has gotten funnier and funnier. [Graham] that was my favourite part. [Jamey] Great! And Amber we left you for last… [Amber] I definitely loved that last scene that capped everything for me I thought it was so beautiful and on that day I actually I don’t know how much you guys know about the process but I didn’t actually see Alisha do any of that stuff I was staring at a stick out in the field and being told what was happening and so when I got to see it come together I was like yes THAT is Heartland. [Jamey] I’m really into this new horse, Trouble are you guys into this horse yeah they’re such a good actor can you tell us who can tell us a little bit about how good the horses are as actors to work with and what it’s like? [Amber] Is that me? I think most of you know I have a very special appreciation for the equine actors on the show and I’ve really I’ve spent a lot of time with them over the last eight years because the horse who plays Spartan, Stormy we’ve had the same horse for eight years and so you get to know them and you get to know all of their little characters and quarks and you know you know what we can film the scene too long because he becomes a diva after ten o’clock and he just needs to go home and you start to learn these things and it’s actually true there’s certain horses that will work all day fine Stormy you know he’s awesome for like five hours and then he’s like… no… no more of this so i think i’m going to turn this one to Alisha for Trouble because you worked with him a little bit more than I did and did you find any special connection with him? [Alisha] Yeah I really love Trouble especially because he looks a lot like my lease horse and yeah! [Amber] You must follow her on Instagram… So, yeah I really enjoyed working with them they had i think probably about three different horses that played him I especially enjoyed working with the the horse that all the Liberty work and [Amber] Remington? [Alisha] Yes he was so amazing and yeah I’m a really huge of that kind of thing so… [Amber] With that what she means by that is the Liberty work is stuff like when you saw him in the stall and he was pawing stamping rearing any of that agitation that’s actually cues that are trained so just like you train a dog to sit or stay or whatever there’s a trainer in that stall with him telling him to do those things so there’s a trainer saying, “ok paw, paw paw” and they have a cue for it and that horse will stamp and all those kinds of things and if he’s gonna run at her that was also Remington right he’s taught to run when he’s called so these things for these horses that look like they’re “troubled horses” haha don’t mind the pun there they have been taught all these specific cues and so they’re not actually dangerous we would never have a horse onset that actually is going to trample Georgie and we just have these horses that are so well trained that they know when they’re given that cue that they’ll perform. [Shaun] That is all a lie, Heartland is real. [Jamey] Chris has another perspective did you know that Chris directed a bunch of episodes of Heartland how many did you say in total? He said 14 but he’s not using his microphone over 14 different perspective on the horses [Chris] Well I would just say from that perspective I think from the directing part, the incredible thing about animals is that they’re actually not trouble at all the most patient performers on our set. They all have different personalities they have a they are individuals and they have they have their own temperament but what we really owe most of that to is our wranglers we have a wrangler team as Amber mentioned that is responsible for all of those behaviors that you see and it is only actually human error or a lack of planning that can cause a delay in an animal scene because the animals are always pretty game so as long as we do our work and we have the pros looking after this the particular scene they’re very cooperative and as Amber was saying we don’t have dangerous animals on set we just have dangerous people [Jamey] Can we get a question from the audience? you guys Anyone ready to go? Yeah so you guys with the mics, why don’t you pick someone [Audience Member] Alisha, I heard it’s a boy that plays you’re stunt double in the jump scenes is that true? [Alisha] Yeah it is, it’s Sawyer Erickson who is Tom Erickson’s son who is our stunt coordinator who does a lot of the stunts on Heartland now all the trick riding that you would see and that’s all done by a girl named Mackenzie and she’s amazing she is like so strong it is ridiculous and then we also have Sawyer who’s been doing a lot of the jumping scenes on you know anything that’s not trick riding a lot of that you see with him and I got to do a scene this season that i was able to actually do some jumping which is exciting because I jump and that kind of thing so they finally let me do a stunt on my own but yeah it’s definitely it’s Sawyer who does a lot of the work and yeah he’s pretty amazing [Jamey] Hey Graham we talked about Amber’s audition earlier can you tell us about the first scene you guys ever did together? someone else remembers… [Graham] What was the first scene we did together? What was it? Oh like in the show like chronologically ok difference between [Amber] There is a difference between the first scene that you see on TV and the first scene that we ever do. Because we don’t you in order so we’ll go by location. [Graham] But if you are talking about THAT scene… [Jamey] I’m talking about the first time you were ever on camera together… [Graham] I have no idea but you know what i’ll tell you the story about that scene that you know that was crazy my character smoked and he was all right choke and I wore this necklace that we called “The Choker” and my hair was parted in the middle and they called it the “Barn Doors” [Michelle] This is 10 years ago… [Graham] But it was fun, Amber was riding around the horse and I was like what are you doing you crazy and she’s like you’re crazy you’re smoking… That’s about all i remember. [Michelle] But when we first shot the pilot when we were filming the pilot we had a blackout it was a terrible cold winter night and we’d all been shooting all day and then we lost power we’re all sitting around the table [Graham] Yeah in the house and we were just like we lost power now what? How long did that last like 20 minutes maybe i can’t remember. Longer than that? It was crazy. [Jamey] This is a question… I want us people to raise their hands again and let’s get someone ready to go and so guys bring the mic and in the meantime i’ll fill in with something from social media so Michel de Marchand wants to know what is something you know now that you wish you knew when you first started acting so maybe that’s a good question for Alisha are the newest member of the cast [Alisha] I definitely wish I knew well I don’t know that there’s a lot of waiting on set its hurry up get into wardrobe get into makeup and then you just have to sit there and wait for like half the day [Jamey] Okay we have a question from the audience? [Audience] So I know Michelle you wore your actual wedding dress and hair that you did in real life and you wore it in the episode where you got married to Peter Amber was I just see things or were you wearing your real wedding dress? [Amber] I knew this question was going to come up. Yes that was the dress that I wore at my wedding. [Michelle] So we did it in opposite order. because I got married on television first and then I got married in real life like a year or two later. And they graciously had given me this beautiful wedding dress that fit me so perfectly so of course i wore it to my wedding then Amy did it. [Amber] On the other hand I had gotten married a year and a half before my character and so it was like well I’ve got this dress that fits and looks good I might as well wear it [Michelle] And it looked good on horse right didn’t it look beautiful? [Jamey] I want another question from the audience ready to go but first i’m going to ask Graham Madeline4554’s question What’s your inspiration for your poems and photography also in all caps we love you. Well thank you, Madeline inspiration… sometimes you see things and it makes you stop and you take a moment and you look at it like what is that and you just have you don’t have a name for it and those are the moments those are the pictures that I try and capture because it’s something that I don’t know how to wrap words around or I don’t know how to describe it but I feel something so i try my very best to put that into words and capture that on camera. so thank you. [Jamey] That’s lovely do we have another question from the audience? There you are I see you up there [Audience] Lou’s baby, Katie How many kids did they use for that part or was it the same baby throughout the season? [Michelle] Siz or seven kids? No i’m joking. At first it was two there were twins that played… because I’m sure you notice that it’s a different actor now at first it was twins until last season and.. Oh is this the first season Julia… yeah so they felt like it was time to grow Katie up a bit so she could say more lines so they’ve hired this wonderful child actor named Julia who is I think doing a fantastic job and it’s just one kid so it’s hard for her sometimes she does a great job but sometimes she gets tired and there’s no one else to to play her part and I’m gonna because you guys are here i can give you a little sneak into behind-the-scenes did you notice that that wasn’t her dancing with me and Peter on the dance floor? We had gone past her hours that she can work as a minor so they had to bring in another little girl and just not show her face so I’m glad you couldn’t notice that means that they didn’t we did a good job filming around it [Jamey] Alright let’s get another person ready to go meanwhile i like this question this is from Aly Visser 0811 because i’m thinking the same thing when you were watching this episode how did you feel and what were you thinking because you don’t usually get to see the show with all of these people right and altogether so what was tonight like? [Amber] yeah you know, it’s really funny, I was sitting beside Graham and Shaun and I think we all felt that it was really really cool to have instant feedback because typically when you’re watching the show there’s no like laugh track so you’re not like we got it it’s it’s like when when you guys hello hello Thank You when you guys laughed, we were all like, “oh! that came across awesome” and then you guys would be like “awww” and we would be like “awwww, yeah it’s good.” So thank you for being our own personal live audience because it was really cool to see what works and what doesn’t and what really resonates with people because you know we we do this and we think that it’s awesome but when we get to see it through your eyes it’s even better. [Jamey] Chris, did you have something to add? [Chris] Just… wow, Gabe’s head is big and I also was thinking wow you look old Chris that’s a strange phenomenon of being in a business a long time as you get to watch yourself age you know you actually do and when it’s on it’s on film it’s it’s challenging at times. [Michelle] Chris, you look very handsome. Didn’t you guys think he looked very handsome? [Chris] You know that technique often works when i’m trying to fish a compliment out of my cast members. [Jamey] Do we have another question ready to go out there? There we go… [Audience] Do you guys have anything in common with your character on the show? [Amber] Horses. [Graham] I ride motorcycles now and I didn’t before so now we have that in common. [Jamey] You are very into motorcycles. [Graham] Yeah, yeah picked it up I learned on the show and then I was like this is awesome, I should do this. [Amber] Then Graham learned and I was like this is awesome i should do this. [Graham] And she did… [Michelle] You know people… sorry I want to quickly answer because people always ask like I was joking before about the control freak thing but I’m like Lou in the sense that we both have we’re both mothers and we both love our family were very close to their family my family is here i love you guys I’m but I’m i want you guys to know if you don’t know if you don’t follow me on instagram or something i am actually pretty different from Lou when my biggest passion is yoga and I really like surfing I mean my husband like to sit around on the beach with our kids and I think Lou would go crazy without the sand be too dirty and and my house isn’t quite as well organized as her but I get inspiration from Lou but I’m not really that much like her… I’m little more laid-back I like to think. [Chris] Shaun? [Jamey] Shaun, yes! It’s Kathy Olgerson, I found it She’s the one that said Is Shaun at all similar to his character, I think I love him. With a winky face. [Shaun] I don’t know you know that probably from my point of view or from if that is a question about me I would probably be the least likely to answer that or this shouldn’t answer that maybe everybody else should answer that because I think Jack is an incredibly honourable man he’s a man’s man he’s a poet he’s all the things that I wish I could be in my life he’s all the things that I wish for everyone here and I wish that everyone here could have a Jack in their lives and so if I was to say, “yes I am awesome like Jack” that would sound kind of self-serving so I’ll let somebody else say yes he’s exactly like Jack. [Jamey] There was totally a question that I just put in for the fun of it from “Heartland is the best” the question was why are you all awesome so there you go. I never got to answer the question because Tim’s I just nothing much about Tim I like and yet I have a feeling I might be a lot like Tim. The only difference is is that I have a home to go back to and someone who’s still convinced that I have potential. But frankly I’ve told people this before about Heartland for for me and I don’t know what how we all get into character because other people are on set a lot more than some of than some of us but I wear a pair of cowboy boots on Heartland that I never wear in Ontario and I leave them in my place and when I get off the plane I put those boots on and all of a sudden I get really snarky and that helps me stay in that character the problem is they tend to sort of maintain it but anyway that’s an interesting question [Jamey] Yeah let’s continue Amber… [Chris] Some people become the characters in a way or are treated like their characters on set by the crew because they don’t actually know the real person necessarily. [Jamey] Are you confessing that that happens to you… [Chris] Nobody likes me. Come on you guys love Chris right? [Chris] once again… [Jamey] Gone fishing again right? It works every time. Amber you didn’t just have your wedding dress but of course Amy wore cowboy boots like would it be possible when we heard practice in the shoes we thought yeah right there’s no way how else are you like your character? [Amber] I think I’m actually very similar to my character in a lot of ways. I live a country lifestyle I have horses. I think that for me Amy’s lived a little bit more of a sheltered life I want to say and it branched out a little bit when she went to Europe, kind of found out who she really was. I think that was so important for her and I know a lot of you were very angry at her but i think that that was the journey she needed to lead to find out who she really wanted to be and for me I grew up in Ontario and I moved out to Alberta for Heartland and I’ve stayed there ever since and it’s been such a life-changing experience for me because I don’t know if I ever would have been brought out there otherwise and it’s exactly where I want to be and I can’t imagine myself anywhere else so for me I think that that was sort of my way of relating to amy’s travel to Europe because Europe wasn’t where she wanted to be but she realized who she was and for me I realized who I was when I moved to Alberta. [Jamey] I want to have.. I want to to try to get at least two more audience questions in but first Georgie I’d like you to answer… sorry Alisha ha! How much are you like Georgie? [Alisha] I’m actually well I’m a little bit like Georgie we both love animals and we both love horses and we both ride but definitely the main difference is I don’t dress like Georgie and I don’t like the way she dresses either but yeah we both have very similar personalities so yeah. [Amber] You’re not as much of a tomboy [Alisha] no. [Jamey] Do we have a question from the audience? Do you have a microphone? Let’s do it. [Audience] What was your favourite episode to shoot in season eight? [Michelle] It’s hard to remember any other episodes except for this one right now huh [Amber] It’s funny because when we film we film over seven months and everything just feels like one giant episode to us like it’s it’s not because you guys have a break each week and you get to go away think of other things we are filming continuously so it’s not really… and were filming out of order we’re not filming start to finish each episode we found two episodes together and all mashed around so it’s really hard to remember like I remember moments I don’t necessarily remember episodes and that’s why when you guys always ask me questions like, “Oh what was your favourite episode?” I’m like I don’t even remember the episodes I just remember what we shot and where and the moments that happened and the interactions with the cast and crew not necessarily the episode does that make sense? [Chris] My favourite episodes are usually sitting on a horse early in the morning often with him drinking a coffee before the cameras roll and looking at the mountains and the Sun coming up and thinking I could have picked another line of work thank goodness I didn’t this is magical my least favourite episode shots are for me personally dining room scenes we often shoot them before lunch we start early in the morning roast beef is on the table or chili or stew some of these people can eat like I could eat. [Michelle] You eat! You always eat. [Chris] I never eat. [Graham] We see you eat. [Chris] Only when I’m on camera. So you have to eat a lot before we even have lunch and it’s often early in the morning and we’ve eaten some heavy meals at 9-10am and because we have to shoot all around that table and all the angles we repeat those scenes over and over and we have to keep them fresh so they’re they’re very unfun for me sort of monotonous but we do have a lot of laughs. [Michelle] Those are some fun times because we laugh a lot. [Chris] We do laugh. [Shaun] Yeah, the dining room scenes are the opportunity for just about the entire like “us” to be together all at one time in and while we’re shooting the rest of the episode we’re kind of fractured it will be Michelle and Hogan or it’ll be Amber and Graham or it will be Chris and I or Chris and somebody else but to get to get all of us together that’s our opportunity to get all of us together for an extended period of time because it takes several hours to shoot some of those dinner scenes they’re long on the page and theres a lot of characters so it’s a complicated setup and like Michelle says it is a hoot sometimes you get everybody together and I don’t know if you know but these are some of the funniest people on the planet this one this one… [Michelle] He’s always showing funny youtube videos always or showing us a new app. [Shaun] Yeah so it’s… I love them. [Chris] But they do take a long time. [Shaun] And again we agree to disagree [Graham] Hey Shaun, do you remember the scene where Michelle had to pop the cork off the champagne? [Michelle] It was like season 3? do you remember when I popped the champagne? [Graham] Yeah well Michelle popped the cork off and it flew like across the room and hit the sound guy that was holding the microphone right in the butt while we’re filming this scene and the champagne just explodes over hand yeah, we laughed a long time about that. [Michelle] And he had to keep holding the boom while recording the sound. [Graham] We laughed a lot about that. [Jamey] We have to wrap up in just a couple of minutes and I’ve gotta get ready to give you guys don’t say ‘Aww’ I’ve got some prizes coming some really amazing prizes so as I get that ready a lot of people ask can I just throw [Shaun] Can I just throw this in you know we’re talking about favorite episodes to shoot i’ll tell you what is the hardest episode to shoot and that’s every year it’s the last episode of our shooting schedule because those are usually some of the most powerfully emotional stories that we tell and and it is hard to say goodbye even for a short period of time to all of our friends here. [Chris] Because we don’t know if we’re coming back either… [Shaun] you know… it’s such a such a commitment to to to be there for as long as we are and we even want to stay longer i just hate our last day of filming I hate our last episode even though i love them i hate ’em [Michelle] Shaun loves being Jack he doesn’t like his days off. [Chris] Shaun doesn’t go home after work [Amber] We are always like, “Shaun, what are you doing her… it’s your day off?” He’s like, “Well, I’m just hanging out.” [Jamey] Oh we have we are going to have one more question great let’s do it [Audience] Why is Lou and Peter divorcing? [Michelle] I think there’s probably some people here who’ve had their parents divorce and there’s probably lots and lots of people in Canada who have had their parents split up so there’s probably lots of kids who know what that’s like so maybe it would be nice for them to see a story like that on TV that can help them deal with what they’re going through. [Jamey] Yes! Yes! there you are I’ve been looking for you. ok you want to come up and do this with me right here we met in the atrium today and she was like, “I’m asking a question no matter what.” [Audience] I just want to say Alisha, Amber and Michelle, you are very gorgeous and you and Shaun and Chris and Graham you are very handsome. [Michelle] You’re gorgeous too. I just want to say, what was the funniest thing ever happened season 8 while I was filming and Alisha I’m really glad you followed me on Twitter. [Jamey] Good question. [Michelle] We laugh a lot but it’s mostly it’s stupid jokes. [Alisha] That wasn’t funny. Julia who plays Katie like as Michelle was saying she gets really tired in the scene sometimes so she was really emotional that day when we were shooting so she was bossing everybody around it was really scary. [Michelle] It was funny in retrospect but it’s not it wasn’t funny then she kept saying things like “I’m out of here” we kept trying to cheer her up that the more we would try, she would say, “don’t touch me… …I’m outta here!” [Amber] “I just need my 10 minute break and then l’ll come back.” [Michelle] That was the only time she got like that. [Jamey] All right before we wrap up here we have something really cool to give away… Do you know what this is? This is the script for the wedding episode signed by everyone here that’s pretty cool right? Who’s gonna do the honours of drawing one of the raffle tickets someone from to someone here want to do it you want to do it again get up here Mackenzie… Here we go We’ve got two?

[Amber] And we had a lot of fun today I really enjoyed myself so thanks for all of this and for allowing us to continue doing what we love. [Chris] I’m proud that we have a show that is in uncharted territory in this country other than the beachcombers which ran for 170 million years we’re going into our ninth season and we as Canadians should all be proud that we have a one-hour drama that is run has run that long and has this much support and growing support I mean we as Canadians should be proud that we have a great product like this that people are trying to watch in the US and can’t get as quickly as you they could get it but I don’t know how. But we should all be proud as a group and it’s because of the collective here so keep watching and tell your friends and we’ll keep doing it [Jamey] thanks again everybody we’ll see you in season 9 happy wedding episode and thank you so much for coming here today to hang out with all of us thank you let’s give them a big round of applause. You guys can stay seated, we are going to do more prizes [Shaun] So who’s this? [Jamey] She won the script!
