It’s always such a pleasure to talk to Heather Peace. She’s very intelligent, funny, and down to earth and she makes everyone feel at ease in her company. And listening to her beautiful British accent only makes the interviews so much more enjoyable. Since I last talked to her at L8, Heather has been pretty busy with filming second season of “Lip Service” and “Waterloo Road”, and travelling around the UK with gigs and full-band concerts.

After the success of her summer festival appearances, the multi-talented
Heather Peace will set out on a mini-tour this winter.
Musician and actress Heather Peace has announced that her much anticipated UK tour documentary will launch as a four part webseries on her website www.heatherpeace.com on Monday 20th June. The documentary, made by filmmaker Patrick Stutt of Shoebox Media and co-produced by Wire Media, gives an access all areas look at Heather’s sell out 12 date tour which took place in April 2011 from Belfast to London. The footage gives fans an exclusive look at backstage footage, offers twelve full length songs and shares the ups and downs of living life on a tour bus for two weeks. I had an opportunity to do a follow-up interview with Heather regarding her tour, documentary and her growing music career.
Heather Peace began her professional career back in 1997 with nearly two years in Rep Theater, later appearing in major drama series on British TV, while also pursuing career in music. To a lot of our readers Heather is best known as DS Sam Murray in the BBC drama “Lip Service” that was recently renewed for its second season. I had a chance to meet Heather at L8 Convention in Brighton and we chatted about her acting career; Sam Murray, who was the easiest character to play; her passion for music; and what it means to be romantic.
The special part of the Sunday’s Q&A sessions was “Girltrash” panel. Their presentation began with footage of a “Girltrash” webisode, in which Tyler (played by Michelle Lombardo) and Daisy (Lisa Rieffel) found out that LouAnne (Riki Lindhome), Tyler’s one-time lover, double-crossed them by stealing money from local Kingpin and two friends have to find money before they end up dead. The clip was hilarious and included some fantastic moments from another “The L Word” alumna, Rose Rollins, who played Monique Jones.
