Interview With Stephen Huszar | A Homecoming For The Holidays | Mistletoe Magic


Mercy: Tell us a little about yourself. 
Stephen: I was born in a small town in the middle of the Canadian prairies to Hungarian immigrant parents. I grew up very curious about the world and competed in sports that allowed me to travel and be outside including skiing, sailing and windsurfing. I graduated with a commerce degree and worked in corporate America for a few years before I decided to follow my heart and pursue acting full time. 

Mercy: What started your interest in acting? 
Stephen: My earliest memory is when I was in grade 2 and played Old MacDonald in “Old MacDonald Had a Farm”. I really had no idea what I was doing, but I sure had a heck of a good time singing and dancing with all my friends up on that school stage. I guess that experience kind of stuck with me when I looked to pursue something I was passionate about. 

Mercy: What is one of your favorite locations you've ever filmed? 
Stephen: I love shooting in nature, so the shows that take me into the most remote location are my favourite. So far that’s been in gorgeous lake county in northern Canada. Many of the cast and crew lived in cabins right on the water throughout the production. It was magical. 

Mercy: If you could play a role in any movie from the past, who/what would it be? 
Stephen: Tarzan. 

Mercy: Who are some of your acting influences? 
Stephen: Gosh so many! Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Anthony Hopkins, Meryl Streep, Robert Redford, Paul Newman, Ralph Fines, Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Leonardo Dicaprio, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Tom Cruise, Mel Gibson, Christian Bale, Harrison Ford, Penelope Cruz to name but a few! 

Mercy: You can only watch 3 movies for the rest of your life - what are they? 
Stephen: Kung Fu Hustle, Star Wars and Forest Gump. 

Mercy: Most rewarding part of being an actor? 
Stephen: Being able to play for a living! Stepping into someone else's shoes and seeing life from a different perspective is a gift beyond words. 

Mercy: Can you share little bit about your two Christmas movies coming out this Holiday season? 
Stephen: Absolutely! "A Homecoming for the Holidays” is a story about a budding county music singer named Charlotte, played by Laura Osnes, who has a chance encounter with a military officer named Matt, played by myself. They reunite 3 years later in the very town they met and build a special bond during the height of her stardom. This movie was shot in beautiful locations all over BC and will premiere on December 7th on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. 
“Mistletoe Magic” is a hilarious romantic comedy about reunited friends on a hunt to find a lost mistletoe before Christmas, starring the amazing Jessica Sipos. We shot that one in Toronto and it will premiere on December 24th on Super Channel’s Heart & Home in Canada. 

Mercy: Any other upcoming projects? 
Stephen: Yes, I have horror film called “Rabid" that will be released in theaters and digitally on December 13th, which is a remake of the 1977 David Cronenberg film of the same name. I am also shooting an episode of “Supernatural” for The CW, which will be released in the New Year.

Christmas Question Time!

Mercy: Favorite Christmas Memory/tradition? 
Stephen: Opening presents in front of the fireplace at my family's house while there’s a blizzard outside. 

Mercy: Favorite Christmas song? 
Stephen: Jingle Bell Rock. 

Mercy: Must-have Christmas food? 
Stephen: Saskatoon Berry Pie. 

Mercy: Favorite Christmas movie? 
Stephen: Polar Express. 

Mercy: White or Green Christmas? 
Stephen: White! If there’s no snow, it’s not Christmas for me.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
