8. Now You Know

1.Wind At My Back was a Treasure

Discovering the television show Wind at My Back was like finding a hidden treasure. Unfortunately, like many shows, I found quite a while after it had finished production. So, because it was no longer running, I become curious about what the stars, such as Dylan Provencher and Shirley Douglas, were doing now. Were they still acting? Where else, if anywhere, could I catch their work?

Wind at my Back is a gem of a show set in the 1930's during the Depression, in the fictional town of New Bedford, Ontario. The show aired from 1996 to 2001, but I did not find it until 2010, almost a decade after it stopped shooting. Fortunately for me and other fans, the networks still keep it going, as it plays at 12:00 p.m. and 2 a.m. on Bravo Network. It also available in various networks throughout the US and other countries.

So, wanting to know about the actors from Wind At My Back, I did some research and managed to track down some of the actors from this show, and see what they are doing now.

UPDATE:
In the U.S., this show runs at 7:00 p.m. daily on the Inspiration Network (ISPN).

In Canada, you can view it on Bravo Network daily at 10:00 a.m.

2. May Bailey: Shirley Douglas

At the centre of the town, New Bedford, is a stubborn and independent woman, May Bailey, who has taken over her husband's mine after he passed away, and never lets someone else's feelings get in the way of saying what she believes. May is the grand matriarch, and almost everyone else is a bit intimidated by her overbearing ways.

May Bailey is played by the very well-known Canadian actress, Shirley Douglas. Shirley is a powerhouse individual who is both a very strong actress, and a very strong voice in politics. The daughter of famous Canadian Tommy Douglas, who is known as the "father of Canadian Healthcare," she is also famous for once being married to Donald Sutherland, and being the mother of Hollywood star, Keifer Sutherland.

Cute Video from Ms. Douglas

Douglas got her start as an actress on the stage, trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in England, and has alternated between television and the theatre throughout her career. In 1997, she appeared in a Canadian production of The Glass Menagerie , with her son, Keifer Sutherland, and even did a narration part in the children's series, Franklin in 2000.

Since leaving Wind at My Back, at the age of 65, she has acted in several television episodes, including individual episodes of Corner Gas , Robson Arms and Degrassi: The Next Generation. She also portrayed Madeline Albright in the TV Movie, Road to 9/11, in 2006 and starred in another TV movie, The Christmas Shoes, in 2002.

Like her father, Shirley herself is an outspoken advocate for publicly funded healthcare. As recently as 2010, she spoke up in the media, writing a letter to the editor concerning the issue. She also has done numerous media interviews on the issue, and is knowledgeable and articulate in her arguments. Like her father before, she is passionate about politics and about Canada.

Yes, Ms. Douglas, does seem quite a bit like her character, May Bailey. She is ambitious and full of energy and passion, and never seems to give up. She is still active in politics, and I wouldn't be surprised to see her name on another movie, or in the television credits, in the not-too-distant future.

4. Grace Bailey: Kathyrn Greenwood

Grace Bailey was one of the only single (although very briefly married) characters on Wind at my Back, and she seemed to add some glamour to the show. Infatuated with female celebrities, and always reading fluffy women's magazines that her mother despised, Grace was beautiful and funny, but never quite lucky in love.

Kathyrn Greenwood, born in Scarborough, Ontario, trained as an actor at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and then got her first gig working for the Second City comedy troupe, which produced such legends as John Candy, Eugene Levy and James Belushi, and stayed there for five years.

Since working on Wind at My Back, Greenwood has appeared in the Canadian sketch comedy series, The Royal Canadian Air Farce , and This Hour Has 22 Minutes, as well as the hilarious, Whose Line is it Anyways?

Presently, she is involved in a stage act called Women Fully Clothed , which has received rave reviews for its sketch comedy. This troupe, with five women with Second City origins, tours around the world, features what the Eugene Levy calls the "funniest women in Canada."

In the series, Wind at My Back, Grace Bailey is a character who is spontaneous and fun, and willing to take risks. It seems that Kathryn Greenwood in real life is also a risk-taker, taking on the most difficult form of comedy: improvisation, and taking on the challenge of a five-woman show that goes worldwide.

Wind at My Back Christmas

5. Hub Bailey: Dylan Provencher

Hub Bailey, the handsome grandson of May Bailey, whom we watch grow from a preteen boy into a mature young man, was played by Dylan Provencher. Although a prolific child actor, acting in several television series and TV movies, Provencher did not do much acting after his stint on Wind at my Back.

Instead Dylan runs a real estate business with his brother, Sean, in the Toronto area. Their website gives some insight as to how Dylan made the switch from the entertainment industry to real estate. Family members advised him and his brother to invest in properties, and the two were so good at choosing properties that they decided to pursue real estate as a career.

Although he has given up a career on the screen, he puts creativity into his business, using "innovative approaches to customer service," according to the brothers' website.

6. Fat Bailey: Tyrone Savage

Fat Bailey, Hub's younger brother, was always getting into trouble, and never seemed to be able to conform to his family's expectations. He was jealous of Hub, who seemed to be good at everything, and in one memorable episode actually duked it out with his brother.

Fat was played by Tyrone Savage, who was a child actor who had played in some kid's television shows, such as Goosebumps, and did a fair bit of voice-over work, including a voice role in the same show Shirley Douglas narrated for, Franklin.

What has Tyrone been doing lately? In 2009, he did voice work for the teen comic series, Stoked. He has also done some television work over the years. For the most part, though, he has been acting on the stage, with roles in Romeo and Juliet, Arcadia, and A Musical Called Robin Hood.

Most notably, Savage is currently a member of a the theatre group called Red One Theatre Collective. According to its website the group is devoted to creating "an immediate and visceral theatrical experience for the viewer by deconstructing the artifice of traditional drama." The group goes to sites not normally associated with a stage, and creates a show.

7. Max Sutton: James Carroll

Max Sutton was the lead male role in the series, providing a steady source of strength and encouragement to the Bailey family by marrying Honey and becoming a stepdad to the boys. He was also a teacher, a writer, and the leader of all the sports activities in New Bedford. Max was the picture of cool, and always seemed to do the right thing, in spite of a rather sketchy past, which is alluded to once in a while.

James Carroll, who played Max Sutton, studied acting at La Salle University, and worked as an actor both in theatre and television before joining the show. His jobs varied from Shakespearean roles, to a part on Magnum P.I..

Since finishing up Wind at my Back in 2001, Carroll has kept busy. He has done some television movies, including Deacons for Defense, and The Gathering in 2007. He has also appeared in numerous T.V. episodes, including Wonder Falls and True Crime Scene. His latest gig was a voice-over in the video game, Red Dead Redemption.

8. Now You Know

Of all the cast members I have researched, all have stayed and made their careers in Canada. Most have stayed in acting, more on the theatre side of the business. Two cast members, Savage and Greenwood, are now involved in independent theatre groups. One cast member, Provencher, has turned his back on the entertainment industry altogether.

So, now you know where they are now, and the next time you watch the show, Wind at My Back, you will be able to place these actors into the present day.

      It is June 2012 & I have only just discovered WAMB, Yet what a treat it has been _ I get to see it 3x aday between INSP & BYU channels. I love it so much & it truley feels like escaping the trials of this world for a bit. Not since 'Anne of Green Gables' (I was in my twenties then) have I been so enthralled, so pleasantly taken away (albeit for just an hour). I really do thank God for this programming as it has healed so much of my depression - it has been divine providence that I found this show - thank you kindly.

      Praireprincess, I just wanted to express my appreciation for keeping us up to date on the WAMB cast. I was stunned to discover this gem 2 years ago and now it's become my favorite show of all time. The acting and "craftsmanship" are superb in every way.

      Here in the states I watch the show at 11a.m.{PST} M-F on INSP .... also at 2p.m.M-F on the BYU Channel. On Fridays BYU airs another episode at 5 and 8p.m. in case newer fans are interested.

      Blessings, Barb.:)

      @SM Wood, I appreciate your comment. That is neat to hear that you find the show authentic, having lived through that era. I am sure the makers of the show would feel good knowing they have truly captured that time.

      Yes, Grace does go through her boyfriends. She finally lets go of Del after they torture each other but can never commit. Then, she becomes fond of a new teacher that comes to town but neither one is ready. After that heartbreak, she is vulnerable when con artist Van comes to town looking for a mark.

      Grace, like so many real single people, can never get her timing just right, and it's not from lack of trying.

      Again, thanks for the comment and take care!

      Thanks for the info. I stumbled on the Christmas Special in December because I watch nearly every Christmas show I can. After thinking about the special for a few days I noticed the Wind at My Back part and thought there might be other shows. We found the series and began recording the episodes. We were lucky to start at the 1st episode and we've almost completed the last season now. It was really interesting to try to tie the beginning episodes to the Christmas special years later. My husband and I really enjoy the show, it will be a real loss when we finish the series.

      We've been watching this wonderful program for just a few months.

      We love it. Being in our 70's, we remember the 40's so well. New Bedford is so much like the small towns my husband and I were raised in. I am somewhat confused about Grace and her love life. We are only aware of Del and he just left town to find work in another place. So, when does this man named Van come into the picture. It is hard to pick favorites but I do love the acting of Shirley Douglas and the boyishness and cuteness

      of Tyrone Savage. So like one of my 5 grandsons (and 2 boys)

      grace met her husband where she tells toppy that she and jim flett are not going to be a couple as jim cannot yet get over the death of his wife... she is in the street with friends laughing and her future husband sees her across the street (he is at the auto repair place) and says that she is perfect! later on you find out that she was perfect because she is the image of the princess in the painting her husband uses in his cons... thing is, thing is van (not her husband's real name) sweeps her off her feet and winds up falling in love with her as he does so... best series on television, i was so so disappointed when they put the brady bunch on in its time slot and was simply delighted when viewers got it back on...

      @Migdalia, it is on the ISPN station. I don't know if you get that one or not, but if so, it's on at 7 p.m. nightly. It is such a treasure of a show. Take care and thanks for commenting!

      @PM, I am excited that it's back on, too. The schedule has also changed for Canada but at least they have not completely obliterated it. I agree that there is far too much reality television show on. It gets wearying to always watch something without a plot or any character development. Thanks for the wonderful comment!

She just did a movie called "The Power of Three" in 2010 and she played a recurring role on "Degrassi: The Next Generation" as Mrs. Mason, including a movie based on the series called "The Rest of My Life."

      Just heard that INSP has put Wind at my Back into their weeknight line up again because of viewer request. It is so nice that someone has actually listened to the viewers and so nice for us that like to watch something other than reality TV. I only found this show this summer and it has moved to the top of my must watch shows. I am disappointed that I have not been able to see the show from its start. It has been a little jumbled for me. I wish it would start all over again from episode one and follow through. I really enjoy this show!!!

      Do you know what Robin Craig is up to these days? I loved her as Toppy Bailey.

      I love "Wind At My Back". When we changed our provider to Dish that is the first time I saw this program on Inspiration Network. So glad we made the change.

      So glad to hear that plans for the show have changed and it will be on at 7PM, EST during the week. It is a great show with fantastic actors/actresses. Looking forward to watching the show each evening.

      My husband and I had just started watching "Wind At My Back in July when I was at my sister's home. We have been telling everyone about it and now I understand it will not be running except on Sunday's. I truly hope not. It made out day!

      Karen, I am sorry to hear that. I don't know if they are doing that in Canada but I haven't heard anything. It really is a great show. Thanks for the comment!

      My husband and I found WAMB on INSP this summer and have gotten totally hooked as well. We are disapointed that INSP will be moving the show to once a week on Sunday afternoon instead of daily. But I guess it's better than taking it off alltogether. Thanks for the cast updates.

      @Doug, that is so cool that your wife got you into the show. It IS such a great series. Thanks for dropping by!

      @Rachel, I really like Grace, too. I agree that it's better than those shows, too. It's just so well written. Thanks for coming by!

      I started watching the show, this summer 2011, I didn't realized it aired in 1996. I, so enjoy the series. It airs on INSP at 1:00 just when get home from school. My favorite character is Grace (Kathyrne Greenwood). Why is it we never got the show in Texas in 1996. I don't want to upset anyone but I like it better then, The Waltons and much better then Little House, Dr, Medicine Women.

      My wife first started watching the reruns of the show, she got me watching a few and then we were both hooked on watching it, when ever it is on.

      It is a a great series.

      Wish the series continued or more like it. Would like more Wholesome family shows.

      To prarie princess:The show is carried all over, just depends on what cable stations you subscribe to.

      I stumbled across it by accident. even my hubby who is not much for sweet and sentimental, enjoyed it. As one commenter said she found in on an insprational channel. The call letters for that channel are INSP. It also carries The Waltons and wil begin carrying Little House this fall. BYU channel also carried WAMB this past year.

      Hi labdogmom, thanks for stopping by! I know what you mean -- it is hard to believe it's been that long since they stopped producing. You sound like a huge fan, too! It was fun researching all the actors and I agree with you about "Hub." He was such a strong actor!

      Cheers!

      It is so nice to place where all the actors are now.I am still shocked that it has been over 10 yrs since the show stopped production. Of all the people I thought would stay in it was "Hub". Never saw the show here in the states while it was in production. Only found it on a small inspiration station by accident. I fell in love with it right away. It was in the middle of the seasons when I found it and watched it till the end.And then watched it all the way through again and then the movie. again. I am glad that they were able to do the movie to kind of tie up loose ends. Non the less I wish it could have continued a little while longer.. Just such good acting, they become like family.

      thank you for finding out the information. Boy has "fat" grown up!whew!

      Tammy, that's interesting. From what I read, it said that this show was distributed in the USA, but probably not to every state, then. It was a good show, but I suspect it had a loyal but small following. Thanks for the comment...nice to talk to you again!

      Cogerson, thanks so much for reading and commenting. I'm glad you liked the videos. Both Greenwood and Douglas are both quite hilarious, even though the show itself wasn't a comedy. Take care!

      There aren't too many Canadian produced shows that filter this far south. "Da Vinci's Inquest" is the only one I can name from recent times and it is in reruns itself.

      rpalulis, thanks so much for the comment. I find Who's Line is it Anyways just so, so funny, too.

      Kashmir, it was marketed in the USA,when it was on primetime, but I'm not sure if it is still on reruns there as it is in Canada. Thanks, Happy Valentine's Day to you, too!

      Hi prairieprincess, I've not see or even heard of this TV show, but i don't watch much TV so that could be why or maybe this program is not in the U.S. .
