I am joined by the cast of Republic of Doyle. First of all, welcome to the festival. What does it mean to you to be here celebrating
this sixth and unfortunately final season of Republic of Doyle? Well it’s sad that it’s come to an end but
we’re happy that we went out on our own terms. So it’s great to be here. Well I know a lot of fans are kind of upset
about this. Is there anything that they can look forward
to, maybe a movie or spin-off series? The plan for sure is to, we have a movie kind
of in the works in terms of development. We’re writing it now. But it’s really important to us that we didn’t
try to kind of try to carry on the series longer than it’s shelf life was supposed to be. So we wanted to make sure we weren’t disrespectful
to all the people who have been supporting us. As sad as we are that we’re leaving
them, I think it’s better we did that versus them leaving us. You can go out with a bang and leave them
wanting more. What do you think Republic of Doyle- has it
influenced Canadian television at all? Might be a question for other people but I
don’t think there’s been a show quite like it really. I can’t think of a show that’s anything like
it, particularly on its own terms and looked and sounded different than pretty much anything that was meant for Canadian TV. I would presume that would have some sort
of a following. What are you going to miss most about the
whole experience? The people and the cast and being home and
the fans, like everybody who’s been a part of it. Just the people. Well and you said being at home- you’re from
Saint John’s, Newfoundland and you are too as well- what was it like filming at home
and also having a show set in your hometown? It’s a dream, it’s a total dream come true
and I always say this but it’s so good that I wouldn’t even think to wish for it. It’s better than anything I could have hoped
for. What was the reception like from locals? Everyone’s excited and it’s a show that belongs
to everybody. What’s your most memorable moment? Either from filming, on set? The very first kind of call that we got where
Perry Chafe and I got saying that our development field, the pilot we made, the scripts we had written
was being ordered as a series. Because then it goes from an abstract idea
that everybody think’s you’re insane because you have an idea like this and you actually think you
can get it done. Something full of substance and the next step
then is trying to figure out a way to actually make the thing work and not blowing your opportunity. The fact that we got through three years and
every episode, some of them more than others, but every episode we’re proud of, everything we did, it’s quite a milestone. Something that I don’t take for granted. Well you should be proud. And you guys had an amazing six seasons. And we all loved ya. And it’s not just Canada who loves you either. The show has been distributed to 98 countries
around the world. What is it do you think that just captivates the international audiences? I think it’s, it meant no concessions to- it
told stories from the Newfoundland point of view without sort of any sort of inferiority complex and I think it’s very different so I think that’s what it is. One last question for you all. If you could sum up the show with one word,
what would it be? Funny. Pass! Did you say funny? Oh I don’t know, but thank you. How about that? Thanks everyone for giving us a shot. That’s not a word and I’m not summing it up
but I do really mean that. Wait! Heart. Yellow! Heart! Heart! That’s a great one. Heart was what I was going to go for. Alright, well thank you very much. I wish you all the best, good luck! And enjoy! Thanks for watching. Be sure to check out more interviews from the 2014 Canadian International Television Festival’s red carpet
