S2:E22: Dawn, Her Dad & The Tractor Part 2: From Trailers to Tractors with Rob Wells and Breton Lalama

Season #2

From Trailer Park Boys to tractors and trailers, this episode continues our journey celebrating the new film Dawn, Her Dad & The Tractor, filmed in Nova Scotia and starring Maya V. Henry.

We are today joined by actors Rob Wells (Ricky, Trailer Park Boys) and Halifax-based actor, writer and comic, Breton LalamaIn the film, written and directed by Shelley Thompson, Breton plays the role of Dawn's friend and ally, Banu. Breton is best know for their roles in Slasher (2016) and Pretty Hard Cases (2021). And they've been busy! For one - seeing them play 40 characters in ONE play last Fall in Fully Committed at The Neptune, was a phenomenal comedic ride that left us a little tired -but exhilarated!

Rob is currently working on the film for Trailer Park Boys, and together Rob and Breton shake down what it was like working on this Maritime film that raises the bar and brings trans-based conversations and inclusion into family film.

Produced by Terry Greenlaw.
