Daniel Gillies & Mr. Will-W.
After debuting at number one in its prime 9:00 PM Thursday Timeslot last week in Canada, NBC/CTV's Saving Hope is riding high on the buzz factor right now.  I caught-up with one of its Stars Daniel Gillies who plays Dr. Joel Goran on the Series earlier today, as he was walking his adorable Labrador named Cooper. After enjoying the first Episode of the Series v. much last week, he tells me, "Many are curious to see the Love Story looming between Joel and Alex (Erica Durance).". And I would be one of those People! The above Photo in fact is one of my fave Celeb Photos of 2012. A genuine moment.

Many of you might recognize Canadian-born, New Zealand-raised Gillies from his work in The Vampire Diaries in which he plays the role of Elijah and even earlier in his Career he appeared in popular Titles like Spider-Man 2 and Bride and Prejudice.

An all-around Great Guy, Gillies was kind enough to chat for a minute and I commended him for his work on his personal Charity Project for a two-year-old Boy named Isaias Quintana, who is suffering from a rare form of Cancer.  Click here to find out how you can contribute to the Fund.

Episode Two of Saving Hope airs tomorrow night at 9:00 PM EST on NBC/CTV.  The Medical Drama continues to film in Toronto till mid-July.
