In An Interview, His Wife Reveals

In the rapid-fire round, actress Anna Popplewell chooses football over hockey. As she was indecisive about Canadian and European, she took both names. 

She preferred skinning and liked to have general coffee than Tim Hortons and Starbucks. It seems like she loves Christmas a lot as she mentioned it instead of winter or summer. 

As per her, it was so cold in Canada that she doubted anyone wanted to think about it. She would love to have protein than a salad and enjoy going around to 416 SNACK BAR in Toronto for foods.

 Although she does not go to bars and clubs often, she prefers to go around in Communist’s Daughter if she had to. Currently, she is reading Alice Munro’s short stories. 

The last concert and movie she pays a visit to were Jungle and Nightcrawler, respectively. She told me that her favorite prop on set was the bow. 

When asked about her top wish list, she said it was to stay in New York.
