PRAIRIE POST- SPECIAL AREAS - June 2013 - 13 Jenner actor enjoying success of latest series


BY ROSE SANCHEZ — rsanchez@prairiepost.com


Small-town Jenner product Landon Liboiron continues to make a name for himself in the big world of acting with his latest appearance as gypsy/werewolf Peter Rumancek in the Netflix- original Hemlock Grove. The show,which is only


werewolf/vampire project, but once I read the words it felt more unique than what was already out there,” he explains. “The characters were all very intricate and I immediately fell in love with the idea of playing Peter.”


LANDON LIBOIRON


available on Netflix was released earlier this spring and is based on the novel, of the same name, by Brian McGreevy. It has it all, from murder to steamy love scenes and vampires to werewolves. The first of 13 episodes opens with a


young girl’s murder in a Pennsylvania steel town. As the series carries on, numerous suspects are named and rumours run rampant as characters decide to find the killer themselves and unlock the mysteries of Hemlock Grove. Liboiron auditioned for the role of


Peter, and says he was lucky enough to snag the part. “It scared me at first to work on a


He describes his character using a passage from the book. It describes Peter as having “not so much a maturity as a nature’s consciousness, as


though he were at times exactly of his years and at others a soul out of time wearing a boy’s mask.” Although set in Pennsylvania, Hemlock


Grove was filmed mainly in Toronto and Hamilton. The show is somewhat of a departure


for Liboiron who gained a following on the Canadian hit Degrassi: The Next Generation, playing Declan. More recently, he starred as Josh Shannon in the sci-fi television series Terra Novaas well as had a recurring role on the CW series Life Unexpected. Liboiron also starred opposite Eva Mendes and Patricia Arquette in the


independent film, Girl in Progress. “I think the important thing when dealing with a more risqué project is to consider if all the gore, sex, and violence is lending to the story,” he says,when asked if he has concerns about Hemlock Grove. “I wasn’t concerned because I believed when I read it that when it was bloody, it was meant to be bloody,and when it was violent it was meant to be violent. All that stuff made filming all the more interesting.” Liboiron is also happy the show is only


available on Netflix as it can be viewed globally as opposed to just in North America, increasing its exposure and that of those involved. Whether that will translate to more


work for Liboiron is hard to say. On June 20, it was announced Hemlock


Grove will return for a second season, albeit a shortened number of episodes were ordered.Regardless, Liboiron is enjoying the experience. “I can’t honestly say I know where this little piece of my life will take me. I would like to hope that this will open up more opportunities down the road, but for now I’m just enjoying it.” Liboiron also still enjoys returning to his small-town roots. Although he pays rent in Vancouver, he runs “home” to Jenner as fast as he can whenever he gets the chance. “My family recently extended so I was


able to hang out at home which definitely brought me back down to earth.”
