Exciting news for anyone who missed or wants to look back on our interview with the talented Dani Kind; we're releasing it again!

That is not a reason to stop pursuing something you love.

In this episode: The importance of finding the right fit when it comes to an agent and how you need to advocate for yourself How to keep motivated as an artist and embrace hard work Why it is important to begin in class as an actor How she manages a busy career on set with young children and what motherhood has revealed about herself as an artist Why we need to be willing to have uncomfortable conversations not only in our work but in our day to day life The most meaningful moments for  her time on the set of Workin’ Moms A little about Dani: Dani Kind stars as ‘Anne‘ in CBC's half-hour comedy series Workin' Moms and recurs as ‘Mercedes Gardner‘ in SyFy's hit series Wynonna Earp. She recently starred in Blue Ice Picture's thriller Banana Splits opposite Sara Canning and Steve Lund. Other recent credits include CBS' Ransom, BET's In Contempt, and a supporting role alongside Peter Sarsgaard in Veena Sud's The Lie which premiered at TIFF 2018.      Follow Dani!

Firecracker Flashback: Dani Kind!

Firecracker Department with Naomi Snieckus

Hey Firecrackers! This week we're celebrating none other than Dani Kind! You may have already heard this ep, but it's one of our FAVOURITES (and she is having an AMAZING 2019)! Enjoy this double dose of Dani Kind, and catch the new FD Aftershow about this episode next Friday (July 12!) on IGTV and YouTube. Now you might know Dani from her role on CBC’s ‘Workin’ Moms’ or perhaps as Mercedes Gardner on ‘Wynonna Earp’, or maybe you just know her for being a kick-ass woman? Well, I first met Dani through the CBC, since we’re both on the network we would see each other at parties and what not, but I never really got a chance to connect with her beyond the basic pleasantries. However, I remember seeing her on a bus in New York City a little while ago, she was with another department member, Tommie Amber Pirie, and we got a chance to chat a bit further. I remember thinking how bold and vivacious she was. Then, we wound up having this really weird, kind of awful, but oddly connective experience together. We had both shown up to a fitting to find something to wear to one of these fancy events. Well, the more dresses I tried on the worse I felt. Nothing seemed to fit or look good, and it was quite the emotionally toll taking experience. Well, Dani (along with Juno Rinaldi from ‘Workin’ Moms’) showed up and as it turns out, they were in the same boat. It just made things a bit better, because we got to connect over the shared experience. Anyway, I’m really lucky to have gotten her to come on the show. I finally got the chance to get know Dani, where she came from, and her journey through life and this industry. Enjoy, Firecrackers!

Raising boys who respect women w. Dani Kind

Moms in the Middle

When you become a mom, you start to see the women around you a little differently. You see their strength, their tenacity, their brilliance and you appreciate them a little more for everything that they do. You also start to notice all of the obstacles that get in the way of their success. Dani Kind, actress on the hit show, Working Moms, says there’s only one way to get through those obstacles—together. The mother of two talks about how her relationships with other women have transformed since the birth of her first son and how she’s teaching her boys to respect and empower women.Editor’s note: Since this episode was published, the premiere of Workin’ Moms Season 3 was moved.
