Hi, I’m Michael Doyle and in The Gold Fish Bowl I play the role of Doctor Hart Cane. I’ve been a part of this film since Meg decided to produce it. While I’m not particularly experienced as an actor or in film in general, I’m very excited to give my best. We have a lot of talent and potential combined with a strong story and hardworking, dedicated people. The film’s characters are quite deep and one of the things I noticed was that they are all particularly quirky – or dorky in their own ways. Everyone that I end up getting to know eventually becomes described as dorky to me. By dorky I don’t mean anything bad though – it’s them being unique to their individual selves.
It is a beautiful thing to see struggling people who can still laugh. I totally relate to this. As the film follows Mara Winter we learn how suppressed and timid she is, but throughout the film we start to see so much more in her and how beautiful of a person she really is. My own character, Dr. Hart Cane is a very organized and professional person, but he is also much deeper than that. We learn just how quirky he is through his therapy sessions with Mara. On the surface he’s a kind hearted professional, but further than that he’s a quirky guy who enjoys making his own rap (even though he might not be that good at it) and happens to falls helplessly in love with this special person that brings out his emotional, intimate side, making him look like a helpless puppy in love. Although it is a sombre storyline, these beautiful characters lighten it up. I’m looking forward to seeing it all come together.
