Dominique Provost-Chalkley on Season of Love and The Curse of Buckout Road
At Wynonna Earp con Shorty’s in Milan, I was able to ask Dominique Provost-Chalkley a few questions. She has two movies coming out soon, Season of Love and The Curse of Buckout Road, so we talked about them. Below, you will also find a video of the interview.
Me: “Thanks so much for joining me. How is Shorty’s going?”
Dominique Provost-Chalkley: “It’s going well. I was like, Shorty’s? And then I realized that’s the name of the convention. [Laughs] It’s going really well, thank you.”
Dominique Provost-Chalkley on Season of Love
Me: “I wanted to talk to you about Season of Love because I’m receiving the press screener next month.”
Dominique: “Oh my God!”
Me: “Are you excited?”
Dominique: “Yeah, really excited.”
Me: “I’m really excited to see it. So, what can I expect? Is it an ensemble movie like Love Actually where the characters’ lives intersect at one point?”
Me: “I love those movies!”
Dominique: “Yeah, it should be fun. It was really nice to be part of something that’s just like, happy ending in many ways. Like, I always used to love watching romantic movies. It was something that I really enjoyed because sometimes you want to escape from the horrors of the world and just have a bit of fun.
And then on top of that, being the first-ever queer Christmas movie is really special and really exciting.”
Me: “Without giving away any spoilers, what are you excited about most for fans to see?”
Dominique: “Excited/nervous about, obviously, my song; my music is in there. It’s a big step. It’s exciting.”
Me: “I bet!”

The set of Season of Love
Me: “I can imagine, because you’re obviously, you know, used to such a close cast as Wynonna Earp. How was it for you to go into a new set with new colleagues?”
Dominique: “It was good. I had taken a bit of a break previous to that. So, I had just come back from Brazil for five months. So, it was like first, you know, getting back into things and finding my feet. But it was such a nice set to be on. All of the women were so kind and generous. It was a very easy set to come back to you and have a good time.
But, I mean, I wasn’t… As is with moviemaking, often you’re not actually there for that long in comparison to something like Wynonna. We’re there for five months, and we have such a strong bond by the end of it. It really feels like we’ve been a huge journey, whereas, with a film, I may have only been there for a couple of weeks, no more. And only in and out, so it’s different, of course, but it was a very, very nice set to be a part of.”
Dominique Provost-Chalkley on The Curse of Buckout Road
Me: “So, you’re in The Curse of Buckout Road too. You often meet with Earper fans, and we often say that we will support other projects of yours no matter what. I have noticed that quite a few of the cast members have decided to play in super scary movies. Has that been a joint decision to test our loyalty?”
Dominique: “Oh, really? Oh, you mean like…”
Me: “Ready or Not.”
Dominique: “Yeah, and also, Michael has a very scary movie coming out. No, absolutely not. And it’s weird that it’s timed like this. Like it was something that feels like an eternity ago. You know, I think it was either after season one or season two, I think it was even after season one that I filmed it.”
Dominique: “This feels like just such a, such a long time ago. But that’s, I guess, the way it happens sometimes. It comes back around to haunt you!” [Laughs]
