From Concerts to the Red Carpet: catching up with the cast of Project Blue Book

Aidan Gillen, Ksenia Solo, Michael Malarkey

A quick summary as of February 10, 2020 of what the Project Blue Book cast members have been up to recently.

The University College Dublin’s Official Drama Society announced that they will be presenting “the esteemed Irish actor” Aidan Gillen with an honorary fellowship on Thursday, February 13th at 4pm. All entrants must be Dramsoc members (non-members may be signed up on the day of the event).  Check out https://twitter.com/dramsoc for more info.

Michael Malarkey wrapped up his 20+ city, nearly month-long whirlwind European Graveracer tour on February 9th, thanking fans on social media:  “Lights down on #TheGraveracerTour! Thank you to each and every one of you that joined us on the road and gave us your time, your presence and your energy. We hope you have as many memories to cherish as we do. Until next time, friends…” To focus more on his work, family and friends, Michael is trimming back his social media presence. For the time being, he’ll post just to Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/mkmalarkey/). It appears his Twitter and Facebook pages will remain only in static form. In addition to traveling and performing every day while on tour, Michael managed to squeeze in some interviews, including this one which explains the motivation behind the album’s cover artwork: https://www.calltheone.com/en/musicians-singers/interview-michael-malarkey

Ksenia Solo appeared February 7th at the Vanity Fair and Lancome Women in Hollywood Celebration – https://celebmafia.com/ksenia-solo-vanity-fair-and-lancome-women-in-hollywood-celebration-02-06-2020-2320213/ – as well as the February 9th 28th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party (https://www.gettyimages.com/photos/ksenia-solo?events=775463331&family=editorial&phrase=ksenia%20solo&sort=newest), where she showed off a retro 60s/70s outfit and a mass of new curls.

The internet is a treasure trove of old tidbits, and new recurring cast member Jerod Haynes is shown rocking a very red pair of sneakers in this 2015 ad for MacDonald’s limited edition Sirloin Third Pound Burger at this ad archive: https://www.ispot.tv/ad/7QAx/mcdonalds-sirloin-third-pound-burger-limited-edition

Unlike Donna, Mimi’s too snoopy neighbor who befell a foul fate and was never seen again, actress Heather Doerksen has kept very busy since that character’s demise. Read a recent interview with her at the online Deecriss site at https://deecriss-website.weebly.com/heather-doerksen

“It’s such a joyful set.” JUST IN: an hour-long interview with Jill Morrison, aka Faye the department’s secretary. She speaks at length about acting, teaching, and the most challenging part of playing Faye, at https://www.yvrscreenscene.com/home/2020/2/10/episodesixtyonejillmorrison. The Project Blue Book segment appears at the 43-minute mark. Warning. There is some NSFW language in the podcast.
