Actress Wendy Crewson has appeared in more than 100 films and TV shows, but when it came to being honoured at Canada’s Walk of Fame gala, the 2015 inductee was shaken up with nerves.
“I was up on stage, and I could feel my leg shaking so hard,”; Crewson tells ET Canada’s Cheryl Hickey in an exclusive backstage interview at the CWOF gala. “I just thought, “Okay, just hold that leg still.’ It was very exciting.”;
By the actress’ side for the special occasion was her girlfriend, Julie Bristow.
“She says, “Babe, you’re prepared and you deserve this,’ which was lovely because you think, “I’m an imposter,'”; says Crewson.
The star, who just came out publicly last year, calls her partner her rock.
“I’m so fortunate because she’s in the business,”; reveals Crewson. “She’s a producer, but she’s not another actor, so it’s a very nice complimentary relationship.”;
The Canada’s Walk of Fame Inductee Celebration airs Thursday, December 17 on Global Television.
