Laura Vandervoort, “Smallville’s” Supergirl, joins the voice cast of “Captain Canuck” as Blue Fox.
Vandervoort (Smallville, V, and the upcoming supernatural thriller, Bitten) joins Kris Holden-Reid (Lost Girl, Underworld: Awakening, The Tudors) and Paul Amos (Lost Girl, Murdoch Mysteries, Warehouse 13) in bringing the comic book to new life in an animated web series that launches on July 1st, 2013.
“We are thrilled that Laura is joining our cast. Adding her to the team of voice talent with Kris and Paul is a dream come true,” commented Dean Henry, Creative Director at Captain Canuck Inc. He is equally excited about the progress of the web series: “The scripts are in great shape and we’ve launched formal production. It’s very gratifying to see a labour of love start to really come together.”
Vandervoort’s character, Blue Fox, is an elusive and deadly mercenary. Little is known about her background, but the most dangerous aspect of her character maybe her shifting allegiance, which attracted Laura to the role: “I’m really intrigued with the mystery behind this fierce female character. She’ll definitely be giving the Captain a run for his money.”
The five part animated series will debut online at www.captaincanuck.com on July 1st, 2013 and is being funded entirely through fan support on the popular crowd-funding portal, Indiegogo.
