Emilie Not in Four Saints?

Emilie has been replaced as Mairi Chisholm on the movie's Imdb page. According to Imdb Melanie Lynskey has replaced her. Imdb is not the most reliable site so I'll let you know if this true once I find something more official. In the meantime let's keep our fingers crossed that she is in Four Saints. Emilie really needs to work!

A poster for the film was released and Emilie is not featured in it. So now it's official, she is not in the movie. Let's hope she gets a new role soon!

Blog Action Day: Water

Today is Blogger's annual Blog Action Day and the cause this year is water. Many people might not realise how severe the global water problem is. Blogger sent me 5 facts about it and I thought I'd share them with you.I also found a good video on this subject on Youtube which I posted below. I would also encourage all of you to visit, a great site dedicated to solving the global water problem!


  1. Unsafe drinking water and lack of sanitation kills more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Unclean drinking water can incubate some pretty scary diseases, like E. coli, salmonella, cholera and hepatitis A. Given that bouquet of bacteria, it's no surprise that water, or rather lack thereof, causes 42,000 deaths each week.
  2. More people have access to a cell phone than to a toilet. Today, 2.5 billion people lack access to toilets. This means that sewage spills into rivers and streams, contaminating drinking water and causing disease.
  3. Every day, women and children in Africa walk a combined total of 109 million hours to get water. They do this while carrying cisterns weighing around 40 pounds when filled in order to gather water that, in many cases, is still polluted. Aside from putting a great deal of strain on their bodies, walking such long distances keeps children out of school and women away from other endeavors that can help improve the quality of life in their communities.
  4. It takes 6.3 gallons of water to produce just one hamburger. That 6.3 gallons covers everything from watering the wheat for the bun and providing water for the cow to cooking the patty and baking the bun. And that's just one meal! It would take over 184 billion gallons of water to make just one hamburger for every person in the United States.
  5. The average American uses 159 gallons of water every day – more than 15 times the average person in the developing world. From showering and washing our hands to watering our lawns and washing our cars, Americans use a lot of water. To put things into perspective, the average five-minute shower will use about 10 gallons of water. Now imagine using that same amount to bathe, wash your clothes, cook your meals and quench your thirst.

New Movie: Four Saints

Sorry for the lack of updates. Emilie has been keeping a really low profile lately so there hasn't been anything to update. And the rumours of Emilie being replaced in Legend of the Guardians did turn out to be true. She is not in that movie.

Finally we have some new news. Emilie has been cast as Mairi Chisholm in a new movie called Four Saints. It's based on a true story and it's a period piece about world war 1. You can read more about the plot below:

The film opens when the British Army finds itself overwhelmed by massive casualties. Major Munro, a physician attached to the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC), decides to organize a volunteer Flying Ambulance Corps. He recruits four women: Elsie Knocker (British), Mairi Chisholm (Scottish), Dorothy Fielding (Canadian) and Helen Gleason (American). The women are sent to a field hospital in Furnes, Flanders. But before long, Elsie discovers that many wounded soldiers die of shock during the transport from the trenches to the hospital. She implores Dr. Munro to move the field hospital closer to the front. When he declines, the four women steal an ambulance, packed with supplies, and begin to operate their own dressing station -- in an abandoned village called Pervyse, a stone's throw away from the trenches. Pervyse is just north of the Ypres 'Salient,' a dangerous bulge in the German lines which actually exposes the Allied soldiers to German artillery from three sides. Many dramatic events intervene, and despite tremendous challenges the post survives until April of 1918, when the massive Ludendorff Offensive threatens not only the lives of the women but the imminent collapse of the Allied armies. 'Four Saints' is inspired by historical characters and events Written by Isbouts, Jean-Pierre

Four Saints will be directed by Jean Pierre Isbouts and it also stars Selma Blair, Rhona Mitra, Kris Holden-Ried, Arnold Vosloo, Lorena Rincon and Kim Poirier.
