Murtz On The Scene: Exclusive Interview With Saving Hope‘s Erica Durance

Features, Interviews, Top Story, Video



One of CTV’s biggest successes last season was its original series Saving Hope. The medical drama stars Erica Durance as Dr. Alex Reid, a doctor whose fiancé Dr. Charles Harris (Michael Shanks) is in a coma after a car accident. After a successful first season, the network renewed the series for a sophomore run.

On tonight’s episode, Alex becomes the unlikely advocate for a young prisoner brought into the hospital. Joel (Daniel Gillies) tries to convince Dr. Dana Kinney (Wendy Crewson) to come back to the hospital to operate on a disfigured refugee and a spirit shows up in the morgue just as Charlie is about to start a surgery.

I have had the pleasure of interviewing Erica Durance a few times, first at NBC’s Summer Press Day and at the MuchMusic Video Awards last year. I recently caught up with her again at CTV’s Upfront presentation. We discussed the second season of the show and what to expect [SEE VIDEO ABOVE]

Saving Hope airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on CTV
