Fourteen year old Phoenix Wilson likes to travel to pursue filming opportunities and next on tap, he is off to Oklahoma.
Wilson worked on a Sun Dance scene for Wild Indian in 2017 which allowed him the opportunity to spend time in Utah, shoot scenes and work with Director Lyle Mitchell Corbiere. That’s where he got noticed and is now prepping for the full film of the same title.
Phoenix will play the role of Mkwaa, a young adult in the film. He shares the role with an actor by the name of Chaske Spencer. Phoenix has already worked with Spencer in the tv series on Netflix called Longmire.
Phoenix received the latest script about two weeks ago and has been rehearsing the lines at home. “The easiest way to remember lines is by chunking the work and reciting the lines to my favourite person.” That favourite person is his mom and cheer leader, Marty Wilson who teaches at St. Charles College where Phoenix attends school.
Phoenix started acting at around the age of six or seven. He was so young he really cannot remember his few roles. He’s been featured Longmire, Letterkenny, Two Lovers in a Bear, Maple Mysteries and Hard Rock Medical. Phoenix leaves on November 25th for Oklahoma.
With the tunes always blaring, Mrs. Patricia Demore’s dance class is the place to be this semester.
The twenty-some students registered in the class have been getting in some intense work outs between their cardio pumping dance sessions and those special surprise days when they get in a field trip to a local dance studio.
The troupe has joined forces with Miss Jamie at Spotlight Dance Company for intense toning and conditioning classes.
Mrs. Patricia Demore says “the curriculum focuses on developing leadership, dedication to sport, time management skills all while having fun and making friends for life.”
The class runs all this semester and many of the girls are also a part of the school dance team which recently auditioned for the upcoming Lion’s Club/CTV Christmas Telethon.
Five Sudbury Catholic Secondary Students will be competing at the Skills Ontario From May 6 -8, 2019 in Toronto.
Drake Wickman from Bishop Alexander Carter will be competing in the CNC Wood sign making competition. Easton Laframboise and Griffin Howe from St. Benedict C.S.S will be competing in the carpentry category. St. Charles College will also be represented with student Violet Landrie competing in graphic design-presentation and Sarah Harper competing in the graphic design – studio production category.

Good luck to all, we can’t wait to see what you accomplish!
