Marcus Rosner Chats "Love On Harbor Island" & Current Projects


Mercy: Can you share a little bit about yourself and how you got started in acting?
 Marcus: Well, I was the product of a single-teenage-mother. We moved around a lot in Western Canada before settling in the small town of Sherwood Park, Alberta just outside of Edmonton after my mother got married. I was a big jock that never dabbled in art/music/drama. Once I graduated I took a trip to New York City and saw some Broadway shows with my Mom that sparked an interest in acting. From there I went to Vancouver Film School and after several failed attempts at staying in Vancouver (it was really hard leaving my hometown to go somewhere I knew nobody) I finally moved out for good at the age of 21 and met Andrew Mcilroy, a local acting coach who would give me the guidance and encouragement I needed to grow this dream into a career. 

Mercy: If you could play any role in any movie from the past, who would it be?
 Marcus: I'd try and tackle the title role in Jerry Maguire. That movie had a big impact on me as an athlete growing up. The way he walked and talked and hustled in that performance was so cool to me. For a long time I thought I wanted to be a sports agent afterward. Turns out I wanted to be an actor who could play a sports agent.

Mercy: What can you tell us about your role in Love On Harbor Island?
 Marcus: Well, his name is Marcus so it was a major leap for me...joking. But seriously my friend and rising filmmaker Lucie Guest wrote the role with me in mind so when it came time to do the movie I think we just thought it would be funny to not change the name she had been using. I play a charming jack of all trades; a pilot who runs a dog rescue and comes equipped with the requisite carpentry skills needed to fix an old inn and woo a pretty lady.

Mercy: What was your favorite part of filming Love On Harbor Island? Any behind-the-scenes/onset stories you can share?
 Marcus: My favorite part was what it always is: creating and collaborating with other people. I've known Lucie for a few years so it was great to see her command the set and turn out what I think is a fantastic romance movie. Morgan I had never met but became one of my favorite collaborators. Emma Cam who is so sweet in this movie and has a great career ahead of her. Just a lot of wonderfully talented people. 

As far as on-set stories I can think of dozens of takes that were sabotaged by the dogs. And it was hilarious. Dogs are like the ultimate improv actors. They are as natural as you can be (because they don't know they're shooting a movie) and as unpredictable as you can imagine (because they don't know they're shooting a movie). It was a lot of fun to work around them.

Mercy: Most rewarding aspect of being an actor?
 Marcus: Well, a fact of life that I think all people struggle with at times is that whatever path you take it requires the sacrifice of other possibilities. I could have been... What if I had done... Without a doubt I've chosen the life that makes me the most happy but I know it's something I think about and this career lets me walk in the shoes of other people now and then. I like that.

Mercy: If your life was a movie, what would the title be?
 Marcus: The Man In The Middle.

Mercy: Any other upcoming projects you can share about?
 Marcus: I'm tackling a lot of writing/producing projects right now that will hopefully have some updates in the months to come.

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
