I’ve made another update to the gallery with yet more event and public appearance pictures, some which are rare and date as far back as 2002 when Karine was only 18 or so. Many thanks to Le Journal de Québec for those! Definitely check them out if you can because it’s a real treat to see Karine’s evolution throughout the years! I’ve also added a few more pictures of Karine at the Focus premiere last week and lots of new behind the scenes pics from the set of Revenge thanks to the always wonderful and generous Ted. I just love the pictures of Karine and Madeleine Stowe on set together. Enjoy!
Last night Karine attended the LA premiere of Focus which stars her good friend and former Pan Am co-star, Margot Robbie. Also at the event was their fellow stewardess, Kelli Garner. How fantastic to see Karine and Kelli on the red carpet together! It’s lovely to know that the Pan Am girls are still such good friends despite the show ending over three years ago. I’ve added HQ and MQ pictures to the gallery. Enjoy!
I’ve made a big update to the gallery with over 200 event pictures including Karine at the Telefilm Canada Oscar Week Gala a few days ago and lots of new/old pictures of Karine at past events, basically to plug some gaps that existed. Most of them are MQ but there are a few HQ sprinkled throughout. There are previews and links to all the updated galleries below. Enjoy!
You may have noticed that I put up new layouts here on the main site and the gallery yesterday, I hope you all like them! I felt like it was time for a change and something a bit different. The theme bases are by the super talented sin21 Designs with the headers and customisations done by me. The images used are from Karine’s fabulous 2014 photoshoot by Richard Bernadin. Enjoy, and if you find any errors anywhere on the site, please let me know. I’ll be making a gallery update later today so watch this space!
Maude Arsenault and The Print Atelier are thrilled to introduce this month’s new guest curator, the acclaimed Hollywood “Revenge” and “Pan Am” actress Karine Vanasse. Not only is she a brilliant actress that Maude has photographed many times over the years, she is also a passionate Art enthusiast. After a great art chat on set with Maude and as the spokesperson for Art Fair “Papier” in Canada in 2014 we thought it would be nice to hear Karine’s views on today’s art photography scene…
What’s your relationship with contemporary Art and especially Photography? How did you get into it?
I think I really became a contemporary Art lover in my mid 20’s. Maybe before I was too shy to look at it because I felt I knew nothing about it… but somehow a few years ago I decided to let my eyes follow my instinct and a new world has opened itself to me since. It’s basically only about letting yourself be moved, without questioning it too much. And then you learn things along the way about the artist, their process and surprise yourself by being attracted to images you wouldn’t think would have sparked an emotion in you. The FOIRE PAPIER in Montreal (for which I became the spokesperson last year) was an amazing teacher in directing my eyes and orienting my taste. And last year was a big revelation for me in terms of photography. As if before I had been numb to its effect on me… but not any more.
READ THE FULL INTERVIEW
As you may know, Karine attended the 13th Annual VES Awards in Beverley Hills a couple of days ago and she looked absolutely stunning in a golden gown by Naeem Khan. I’ve now added 24 pictures to the gallery, enjoy! I’ve also made a lot of other updates to the gallery including more Sundance pictures, photoshoot additions and some new/old HQ Revenge episode stills. Previews and links are below.
Great news! Karine is set to play the lead role in Blue Moon, an exclusive original series by Club illico which is a Canadian subscription video-on-demand service (think Netflix). The only details that are known so far are below, but I’ll update you with any more news as and when it’s released. The premise sounds really interesting and I can’t wait to see her in a new role!
The story line of Blue Moon revolves around the character Justine Laurier (Karine Vanasse), who is on a mission with the Canadian army in Africa when she learns that her father has died in an accident. In his will, he has left her his business, Blue Moon, a private security firm that carries out assignments for government agencies. The company is growing fast and flush with cash. Justine’s life has just taken an unexpected and very dangerous turn.
Edit: I’ve discovered from this article that 10 episodes will be filmed in Spring/Summer this year [once Karine wraps filming for the fourth season of Revenge] and will be made available on Club illico in early 2016. Karine has been given special permission from ABC to take the leading role in the series whilst she is still contracted as a series regular in Revenge. No word yet as to whether the show will be filmed in French or English, but as it is a Quebec production I’m presuming the primary language will be French. Hopefully subtitles will be made available for non-French speakers!
The gallery has finally been updated with HD screencaptures of Karine in last Sunday’s episode of Revenge, I apologise for the delay! Don’t forget that the show is back on hiatus now until March when the last 9 episodes of the season will air. I’ve also added two stunning HQ photoshoot additions. The first is a beautiful tintype portrait that was taken of Karine recently at Sundance by photographer Victoria Will. You can view the whole set of her Sundance portraits just here. The second photoshoot addition is another beautiful shot of Karine that was taken some time last year by Canadian photographer Simon Normand. I’ve also added some more social media pictures. Enjoy!
