Switched at Birth actor Gilles Marini is raising breast cancer awareness and has designed a t-shirt for Ford Warriors In Pink. One hundred percent of the net proceeds go to the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation – dedicated to finding the cause of breast cancer.

Celebrity Baby Scoop recently caught up with Gilles to talk about Ford Warriors In Pink, acting, and family life with wife Carole and their two children Juliana, 6, and Georges, 14.

CBS: How did you come involved with Ford Warriors In Pink? Tell us why you wanted to participate and what you hope to accomplish?

GM: Well being part of the campaign is an honor. Trying to make a difference in the world is always so rewarding and I feel so good doing it.  For me, it was common sense to be involved with Ford’s Warriors in Pink. We hope to education more people to spread early detection and help fund research.

CBS: You designed the limited edition t-shirt for Ford Warriors in Pink. How did you come up with the design?

GM: To tell you the truth I got help  from the great team at Ford. I wanted to design a t-shirt that men or women could wear, as well as something meaningful to me. We used the Warriors in Pink symbols and made a great shirt that I am very proud of. My wife helped quite a bit too. My favorite personal touch is the little pink stripes, they are small but crucial for the design I wanted.

CBS: Dealing with cancer in your own life – how did you explain the disease to your children?

GM: Well my kids are aware of the disease, my dad passed away from colon cancer and my mom had kidney cancer at 38, and luckily survived. It is super important that people know that they are not alone and that there is help and support.

CBS: You’ve been on Dancing with the Stars.  Do you have any predictions about this season?  Who are “the ones” to watch?

GM: Gosh, I wish I had time to watch this season. I am so busy traveling and working. What I can tell you, whomever is on the show by now they must know that it’s not a walk on the park .. LOL

CBS: Tell us about your role on ‘Switched At Birth’.  Seems like you have a knack for turning recurring roles into permanent ones.  Why do you think that is?

GM: Well first, thanks for the compliment. :) I play Angelo, a brand new father of two 16 years old girls. I like playing Angelo due to his complexity and the fact that for a long time you never know if it’s gonna be good or bad with him. I just came back from a meeting and checked out the new story lines, this is gonna be the best season yet! I love been part of this show, which is tackling really important topics. It’s a groundbreaking tv show.

CBS: Have your children watched any of your acting work?  All the time but not all of it .  What kinds of comments have they made when watching you on screen?

GM: My daughter sometime watches, but she still doesn’t understand that what I do on TV isn’t real. So imagine when I have a love interest, like Constance Marie, who plays Regina. My daughter kind of  looks at me from the side and wonders. I need to explain myself sometime. LOL

CBS: What does a favorite ‘family’ day look like in the Marini household?

GM: Breakfast together, gardening, Jiu jitsu together, shopping, taking care of the chickens, rabbit, cat and dog. Hiking, watching a tv show or movie, and going to Bucca, at Universal, our favorite family restaurant.

CBS: Are the kids excited about Halloween?  Do they have their costumes picked out already?  Do they trick or treat around the neighborhood?

GM: Yes it’s one of the super awesome things we do all together. They already have their costumes, we always trick or threat in Toluca Lake. It’s so much fun and the kids have a blast. We wait for night to falls before going out, because I believe that Halloween must be done after dark, it’s all about been scared and getting as much “cavities as possible”…opps sorry I meant as much ”candy” possible… LOL

CBS: Have you completely adjusted to being an ‘American’? What are some ways you incorporate the ‘French’ culture into your family life?

GM: Yes I believe I was already very much an American even before I became a citizen. I am in love with this country and with the people. But is also comes down to making sure my kids remember their roots. We go to France as often as we can and speak french at home. That will do it .. :)

This week on The Vampire Diaries, the town of Mystic Falls will be celebrating something called Remembrance Day. If that doesn’t make you say, “Wha?” then congratulations, you are a true TVD fan and totally used to the fact that these people will use any excuse to party, even though those parties often come with a body count. Founder’s Day, masquerades, comet-viewing, the infamous high school Decade Dance, the End of Summer party — clearly, the show runners really enjoy hiring extras and lighting bonfires? After four-plus seasons of this revelry, and perhaps to help you plan your own perfect Halloween party, we decided to compile an exhaustive guide to every single soiree Stefan, Damon, Elena, Bonnie, Caroline and Co. have risked their lives to attend, and tallied the bodies for each one too!

The most surprising conclusion we came to after our research was this: On the whole, the parties aren’t all that dangerous. Sure, a couple people disappear here and there. Often they come with the threat of mass murder at the hands of Katherine, Klaus, or a bunch of vampires brought back from the dead, but at the last minute, they’re saved, and those hedonistic townspeople go home to plan yet another Illuminated Restoration Town Square Gone With the Wind ’60s Dance. No wonder supernatural creatures can’t stay away from this place!

Did we miss any parties — or party victims? Let us know!

The White Queen‘s Aneurin Barnard Would Still “Love” To Do Doctor Who

On October 18, 2013, in Article, Celeb, eBooks, Entertainment, Fashion & Lifestyle, Movies, Music, Videos, by nadia

Starz’s dreamy War of the Roses soap opera, The White Queen, draws to an end tomorrow evening and it’s all going to come down to whether or not the unlikely king, Richard III, can stave off the invading Tudor forces. Like his character, Richard, actor Aneurin Barnard stealthily snuck up on us and conquered our hearts. We got a chance to talk to Barnard recently about working on The White Queen, winning an Olivier right out of drama school for Spring Awakening and how close he really was to nabbing the lead in Doctor Who… When The White Queen debuted on Starz in August, we were completely and totally prepared to fall for the show’s star, Max Irons

Starz’s dreamy War of the Roses soap opera, The White Queen, draws to an end tomorrow evening and it’s all going to come down to whether or not the unlikely king, Richard III, can stave off the invading Tudor forces. Like his character, Richard, actor Aneurin Barnard stealthily snuck up on us and conquered our hearts. We got a chance to talk to Barnard recently about working on The White Queen, winning an Olivier right out of drama school for Spring Awakening and how close he really was to nabbing the lead in Doctor Who…

When The White Queen debuted on Starz in August, we were completely and totally prepared to fall for the show’s star, Max Irons. After all, he had been steaming up all of the show’s trailers and he buttered us up by letting us know how “easy” it had been to play a lover. What we weren’t prepared for was to be absolutely wowed by 26-year-old Welsh actor, Aneurin Barnard.

Barnard had the challenge of playing Richard III from his early days as an earnest teen to a young lover, all the way to king of England. Not to mention the fact that Barnard had to humanize a character who until recently has been wrongfully remembered as one of England’s greatest villains.

“I knew quite a lot [about Richard], but not as much as I thought I knew,” he said in his natural Welsh lilt. Richard is infamous in popular culture for being a villainous hunchback in Shakespeare’s drama, Richard III, which we now know through research and the recent discovery of Richard’s skeleton, was untrue. However that wasn’t what surprised Barnard most about the monarch.
