The FOX team has already provided us with a warm welcome as well as plenty of support … Love that conglomerate! Then there’s Christian Convery who marched right on out and hooked himself up with a lead role as Steve Carell’s son in The Amazon Studios Dramatic feature film ‘Beautiful Boy’, produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B banner. I mean, WOW! And that’s exactly what the media are saying!

MARCH 23, 2017 On April 4, 2017, a new season of the hit television show Prison Break will air on FOX. Actor Christian Michael Cooper plays the role of “Mike,” aka Michael Scofield Jr., a young boy who is growing up without a father. The very talented and extremely upbeat 10-year-old actor has appeared on screen since he was 18-months-old and recently won both the Young Artists Award and the Young Entertainer Award for Best Young Actor in a Short Film for Sidekick. Christian was happy to discuss his career thus far. Meagan Meehan (MM):You’ve been acting since you were a baby! What are some of your earliest memories on set? Christian Michael Cooper (CMC): I can’t remember much about the early years with the commercials, but I do remember how fun it was working on the set of Cult. I remember the fun I had when I met Robert Knepper on set as he was a really nice guy. I also remember getting to drive away in a sports car with some stunt men as I was being kidnapped. That was pretty awesome too. MM: What have been some of the most fun characters you’ve played? CMC: That’s a tough one as I have really liked most of the roles that I have had. I would say the top three would be Shockwave/Billy on Sidekick, Max on Some Assembly Required, and Mike Scofield Jr. on Prison Break. MM: How did you land the role on Prison Break? CMC: Well, I remember it taking a few months to land the role, as they went through two different auditions to find the right person, so I ended up doing three auditions in total to get this role. Because it took quite a few months to book it, I was super surprised and excited about it. MM: How would you describe your character? What about him most interests you? CMC: I would describe Mike Scofield Jr. as a very bright, brave, and outgoing kid. It’s not surprising, considering that he is the son of Michael and Sarah. - MARCH 23, 2017, Meagan Meehan READ MORE OF THIS STORY PAGE 4 | HWP Highlights



CHRISTIAN CONVERY Christian ConveryCOURTESY OF PREMIERE TALENT MANAGEMENT APRIL 3, 2017 | 08:57AM PT Christian Convery has been cast to play Steve Carell’s youngest son and Timothee Chalamet’s brother in “Beautiful Boy.” The Amazon Studios drama is being produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B banner. “Beautiful Boy” is based on David Sheff’s book “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction,” as well as Nic Sheff’s “Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines,” about Sheff’s drug addiction and its impact on his family. Chalamet portrays Nic Sheff, while Convery plays Jasper Sheff, a happy seven-year-old who must deal with the serious effects drug addiction has on an older brother whom he adores. Chalamet starred in Luca Guadagnino’s “Call Me by Your Name,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and will be released later this year by Sony Classics. Variety reported in 2015 that Felix van Groeningen (“The Broken Circle Breakdown”) had come on board to direct the movie. Cameron Crowe was believed to have been attached earlier, but the filmmaker subsequently left the project to direct “Aloha.” Van Groeningen directs the screenplay that he co-wrote with Luke Davies (“Lion”). Other cast members include Maura Tierney, Timothy Hutton, Amy Ryan, and Kaitlyn Dever. Filming began last week in Los Angeles. Convery starred in the television movie “My Christmas Dream,” and in episodes of “Supernatural,” “Lucifer,” and “Legion.” Convery is repped by Innovative Artists and Premiere Talent Management. - APRIL 3, 2017, Film Reporter, Dave McNary

CHE ur clients

I first heard about Holly Words through my agent who insisted that I got a publicist. I first did not want to. Having hired many publicists before, I knew it could do some good but really did not think it could change my life. Holly and Stephanie not only did an Amazing job but changed my whole perspective on Social Media & Marketing. I now approach the whole thing with Love & integrity. They truly care about their clients & their career, sometimes more than the client himself. Holly handled some tricky situations that I could not have handled on my own. I truly felt taken cared of. I now feel like I have a team behind me that cares & will knock down doors with me. I guess after 15 years in this business I finally feel like I’m not alone. I recommend these amazing publicists to anyone who wants to move to the next level. I’m glad I did. ALAIN CHANOINE, ACTOR “Holly and her team at HWP jumped on board to cover PR for my client Duane Howard just before The LA Premiere of The Revenant. I could not be more happy with the exceptional professionalism and the sheer volume of publicity they were able to get for Duane. And going above and beyond, Holly flew herself to LA twice to be with Duane for the SAG Awards and the Oscars, ensuring that he was handled properly and received as much attention as he deserved. Very grateful for all they do! And they make a killer Media Sheet!” LINDA CARTER | TALENT MANAGER | CTM INTERNATIONAL ENTERPRISES INC.

and our clients love results PAGE 38 | HWP Highlights

Needless to say I am very pleased with the coverage I got, and the skillful way you have generated, using my credits and who I am, a lot of attention and press. From the notice in Variety to being featured in the TIFF red carpet photos in the Globe and Mail, to the interviews. Well, well done! So glad that my instincts about you were correct! Look forward to continued work with you. I had three auditions, all knocked well towards the wall, if not out of the park today, riding on the energy of the last couple of weeks. ADRIAN HOUGH | ACTOR “Shortly after a major feature premiered, a client’s role started burning up the Internet with major buzz. With a small window available to capitalize on this I reached out to Holly and company hoping we could generate a bit more interest. And did they ever. Within a day they had met with the client, worked out a strategy and over the next week got his name out and we scored 40 plus media outlets running a story, including an outstanding interview on Canada AM. I live to hustle for my clients and have found a colleague with an energy and passion that matches my own.” LES BLACKMORE | TALENT MANAGER | BLK MANAGEMENT “Working with Holly and Stephanie has been a great pleasure. They are truly very helpful and the utmost professionals. Together you could call them the, “Dynamic Duo” for media and social media. Their efforts are tireless and very creative.” MITCHELL KUMMEN, ACTOR | KAREN, MOM

“My son and I needed help with learning social media skills and to create positive publicity around some unique opportunities he had. Holly and Steph were creative, informative and above all were encouraging. They took the time to understand what we were looking for, tailored a campaign to my son’s needs and his strengths, and provided a lot of helpful, upto-date information. We loved that they were always available, and my son said “they were really supportive in what I was wanting to do and were genuinely nice people to work with”. Oh, and the results far exceeded our expectations!” CORY GRUTER-ANDREW , ACTOR | JACKY, MOM “I felt like Holly always had my best interests at heart. I am so grateful and couldn’t be more pleased with everything Holly is doing for me. She went above and beyond.” MADELEINE ARTHUR, ACTOR “Holly is a hardworking and dedicated professional. She succeeded in getting us a lot of timely press for Madeleine’s movie release and TV Guest star role. These included television and radio appearances, an online presence, including a piece by and also an article in the Province newspaper. Well done Holly!” JANE WALTER, MOM
