One Hallmark movie that I've been especially looking forward to is In The Key Of Love so any and all actors/actresses related to this movie were immediately on my radar. I was able to reach out to April Cameron who plays Lindsey, the maid of honor, about an interview and she graciously agreed. I've been so stinkin' excited to share this interview with y'all so let's get started, shall we?
Mercy: Can you share a little bit about yourself?
April: I’m an actor/writer born in Vancouver, BC. I’ve studied drama since I was a kid, and have been a professional actor for about a decade. I also teach drama to kids! Super fun, and a great job to have between gigs.
Mercy: What sparked your interest in becoming an actress?
April: I think I knew very young — what planted the seed was actually playing barbies, as a kid my barbies always had the most dramatic storylines. But when my parents took me to see Hamlet when I was 8, I think that did it. It was at Ludlow Palace in England. The actors actually performed on the castle grounds — been hooked ever since.
Mercy: Can you tell us a little bit about your character in, In The Key Of Love?
April: I play Lindsay, the Maid of Honour, and the cousin of Jake and Jennifer. Lindsay is a hopeless romantic, who just wants to see everyone have a Happily Ever After. The fact that Jake and Maggie sing together, AND are in love, blows her mind big time. It was a super fun character to play. So much smiling!
Mercy: What is one thing most people don't know about you?
April: ...I have reacurring dreams about disastrous weddings, I have no idea why. Like dreams where I’m getting left at the altar, or guests heckling the ceremony — very un-Hallmark!
Mercy: What do you like to do in your free time?
April: If I’m not writing, I take ballet class, and I like to illustrate. I also like watching highlights of The View on YouTube, I love it when they fight. It’s my political Real Housewives.
Mercy: If your life had a theme song what would it be?
April: The Theme to Golden Girls.
Mercy: Is there a fun story you can share from filming In The Key Of Love?
April: We had so much fun on set. On the very last day, we were filming on a lake, and these Canada Geese kept walking into the shot. Crew members were tentatively trying to shoo them away — Canada Geese can be randomly vicious, so it took bravery to politely shoo them out of the frame. But they kept stealing the show, and it made me giggle. I would have kept them in the scene! But I get it, they’re unreliable and can’t hit marks.
Mercy: Any upcoming projects?
April: Just wrapped an episode of The Magicians!
