Perhaps this is not accurate since I’ll only be listing three films but they are all very well known films and I don’t think anybody actually expected sequels given the nature of their endings and the length of time between the original and the sequel. Then again recent years have seen a lot of older properties from decades ago making huge splashy comebacks in the form of sequels, prequels, interquels, remakes, reboots or re-whatever they want to call the new entry.

Paul Bae is a high school English teacher and stand-up comedian based in Vancouver. He was on the funny CBC radio show the Debaters recently. Not a lot of videos of him online but here’s a little interview with him below.
Joanne Liu was born in Quebec City and has been the international president of Doctors Without Borders (aka Médecins Sans Frontières) since 2013. I only discovered this recently as I was reading up on the Nepal earthquake. You can follow her twitter account to see what MSF are doing in Nepal and in other areas of the world.
Peter Shinkoda is originally from Montreal, Canada but like many actors is pretty much based in LA. He has a significant recurring role as a villain in the new Netflix series, Daredevil. All episodes of Season 1 are available to view on Netflix and his character will be in season 2, set to be released in 2016. Reviews have been quite positive for this show. There have been some articles about him recently like the reader of the week feature of Angry Asian Man and this interview from Hyphen Magazine.
I generally don’t post about youtube personalities (because I don’t follow them much any more) but since I had posted a video of JeffreyFever in the past, I randomly thought I’d see what he’s been up to lately. He’s from Montreal and has been in some past BFTE shows. Last year he made a big decision to move to the USA to pursue his dreams of being an entertainer. It takes a lot of courage to do that and it looks like through all the struggles there have been successes. He made a video summarizing what he accomplished in 2014.
