I am happy and excited to see Brett Wilson, Eugene Levy, Malcom Gladwell, Bob McDonald, Hayley Wickenheiser and other distinguished Canadians being appointed to the Order of Canada today. Congrats!
As I get older, I realize and understand what is important is not just the honour itself but the great work these Canadians have done in service to their communities/groups/fields, to Canada, or to humanity at large. Congrats everyone!
What a great Canada Day gift for them. Happy Canada Day!

Because of the proximity of Hong Kong to Japan, I grew up watching many Japanese cartoons and children shows. And the original Astro Boy (dubbed in Cantonese《無敵小飛俠》) was one of many Japanese cartoons that I enjoyed.
So when a friend (a former publicist of CIFF) reached out to me and told me that she has promotional audio interviews/chats of some of the cast members of the new Astro Boy film (see HD trailers), I jumped at the chance to have a listen.
After checking out the four interviews (streaming audio and downloadable mp3), I found them all very interesting and enjoyable to listen to. Since the chats are actually fun to listen to (and not just “advertising”), it is my pleasure to share with your the following four audio interviews (streaming & mp3),
– Bill Nighy (voice of Dr. Elefun, love him since his performance in Love Actually and then Underworld, The Girl in the Cafe, etc)
– Eugene Levy (voice of Orrin, he is a super funny man with a long list of credits, a cool Canadian)
– Freddie Highmore (voice of Astro Boy, he was the boy in The Spiderwick Chronicles)
– Kristen Bell (voice of Cora, the charming Kristen also plays Elle Bishop in Heroes)
