This is our son Isaac Durnford IMDB and Andrea Martin on set together filming Dino Dan.

Isaac has one of the lead rolls and his character is the comic relief of the cast. Isaac has always had incredible comedic timing and is right in his element being the funny guy.

He was thrilled to find out that he was going to be working with Andrea Martin, a Canadian comedy icon. She in turn was thrilled to be associated with the project and had a great time working with the children on set.

As most funny people do they tend to gravitate to each other and these two were no exception. Andrea and Isaac hit it off right away and in no time they were making the cast and crew laugh both on and off the camera. Andrea was great to everyone and managed to get Isaac caught out a few times for running the gag a little too long as most comics do and of course they weren't going to call her on it so Isaac suffered a little for his art. It was all in good fun though and Andrea was quick to point out that she had a part in it as well.

What a great experience this has been and continues to be for Isaac and the other children in the cast. There many other guest stars to appear on the show Kevin McDonald (from Kids in the Hall) was filming last weekend with the cast and he and Isaac had a great time being funny together.

I'm sure there will be more photos to come of Isaac and the cast.

Not a worthy score but a very worthy portrait - I especially like the fact it will recall specific memories for you and Isaac, and very much appreciate you sharing the story with us.

lighting a tad too harsh. Some fill flash could have evened the lighting.

Maybe a tighter crop would improve this by eliminating the dark band at the top and framing the faces a bit more intimately. It is a pity that the light conditions are a bit difficult.

The one on the left looks like Andrea Martin. I'm not sure if it's her, but i'm guessing based on the title.
