Interview with Natasha Calis, Morgan Holmstrom, Kheon Clarke and Thomas Elms of “SkyMed” on Paramount+ by Suzanne 7/6/22
This new action show debuts Sunday, July 10 on Paramount+. If you like shows like Chicago Fire or Chicago Med, you’ll probably enjoy this. It has a lot more action than other medical shows, such as “Grey’s Anatomy,” and it’s less of a soap opera. However, it does have some steamy moments. It reminds me more of the show “ER,” which always had a lot going on, or the 70’s show “Emergency!”. This show is set up in the Canadian north (i.e. the wilderness) and is based on a real group of heroes up there who rescue people in the boonies and help them out medically. The main name you might recognize in the series is Aaron Ashmore, who plays “Weezer,” the elder advisor to the younger people on the show. He starred in “Killjoys,” “Locke & Key,” “Smallville” and “Warehouse 13.” Three of the “Killjoys” writers also write on this show. You might also recognize Aaron because his twin brother, Shawn, currently stars in “The Rookie.” Unfortunately, Aaron was not on this press call, but I enjoyed speaking with the four young actors. Natasha reminds me a little bit of Anne Dudek (“Corporate” among many other shows). I hope you enjoy the interview and the series! If you’re in Canada, it’s available on CBC.
