WHAT HAS SAT­IS­FIED YOU THE MOST IN YOUR CA­REER?

I think two things gave me the most sat­is­fac­tion. One was get­ting my book Cry­ing for the Moon pub­lished in March 2017, be­cause I wanted to do it my whole life. The other was pro­duc­ing, writ­ing and star­ring in Hatch­ing, Match­ing and Dis­patch­ing, be­cause I love that show.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT YOUR CUR­RENT ROLE AS SEAN TUCKER IN THE TV SE­RIES, LIT­TLE DOG?

It’s fan­tas­tic and chal­leng­ing. I’ve al­ways felt fairly com­fort­able play­ing a man!

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE CANA­DIAN DES­TI­NA­TIONS?

St. John’s. I love it. Oh, and Saska­toon! I was just in Iqaluit and it’s ab­so­lutely stun­ning with the kind­est peo­ple, like they say New­found­lan­ders are. Some­one should do a Broad­way mu­si­cal about Iqaluit. And they have the best coats in the world. They are so beau­ti­ful, ev­ery­one who goes up there ex­pe­ri­ences parka envy.

WHAT KIND OF TRAV­ELLER ARE YOU?

On a per­sonal hol­i­day, I usu­ally just chill. I used to be ob­ses­sively ac­tive un­til I mar­ried my hus­band about 15 years ago. On one of our first hol­i­days we went to a re­sort and I said, “Let’s get the kayaks out and then wind­surf this af­ter­noon.” He replied, “Mmm yeah, let’s just wait un­til this af­ter­noon.” Then we spent the whole two weeks do­ing noth­ing but ly­ing in the sun, swim­ming, read­ing and eat­ing—it was so great. WHAT’S YOUR DREAM DES­TI­NA­TION? Por­tu­gal. I grew up with the Por­tuguese White Fleet in St. John’s Har­bour. When John Cabot came into St. John’s Har­bour there were al­ready Por­tuguese bar­ques in the har­bour. Por­tuguese have been com­ing to St. John’s my whole life. They were such a won­der­ful pres­ence in my city and I al­ways longed to visit their coun­try.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR MARY WALSH?

I’m al­ways hop­ing for a new sea­son of Hatch­ing, Match­ing and Dis­patch­ing. I love the show so much. I’m also writ­ing a new novel. My friend Cathy Jones and I are hop­ing to do a web se­ries in which we travel across the coun­try as the Mrs. E’s. And I’m writ­ing a screen­play called Come Home Here.
