One of this season’s most anticipated new series is Gracepoint, a 10-episode whodunit based on the Brit-hit phenomenon Broadchurch, and two of the show’s stars tell ET Canada about being a part of this extraordinary series: Kevin Zegers and Jessica Lucas.

Appearing alongside such stars as David Tennant (Doctor Who), Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad) and Nick Nolte (an Oscar nominee for Warrior), the Canadian actors admit that as excited as they are to be in the cast of this amazing drama, that pales in comparison next to the honour of appearing on Canada’s Entertainment Powerhouse.

“Anytime I’m on ET Canada, my parents are, like, “You’re doing so well,’ “; says Kevin.

“I know my parents record it every night just in hopes that I’ll pop up on it,”; says Jessica of ET Canada. “This is a big mark of success for Canadian actors.”;

Don’t miss the premiere of Gracepoint, airing Thursday, Oct. 2 on Global.
