Richard Gabourie

Richard Gabourie was a Canadian actor and film producer, most noted for winning the Canadian Film Award for Best Actor in 1978 for Three Card Monte. Born in Moose Jaw, Gabourie worked as a stockbroker as a young man before studying acting at Toronto's Academy of Theatre Arts. Cast in bit parts and commercials, he decided that with the Canadian film industry still limited in its output, his best chance at getting a bigger and better part was to create one for himself, worked for three years to write and make Three Card Monte. At the Canadian Film Awards, he won the award for the Wendy Michener Award. Following his award win, he wrote and starred in his second film, Title Shot, in 1979. Title Shot was more poorly received than his debut and after a final supporting appearance in the 1980 film Final Assignment he concentrated thereafter on production, his credits as a producer included the television film Showbiz Goes to War, the television series The Achievers and the 1989 film Buying Time, the directorial debut of his son Mitchell.

Kimiora Poi

Kimiora Poi is a New Zealand netball player playing for the Mainland Tactix in the ANZ Premiership. Poi began her professional netball career with the Mainland Tactix at the start of the 2018 season, having been a training partner with rival team the Central Pulse the previous year. Poi's debut year was successful and saw her selected in the New Zealand development squad and Silver Ferns team for the 2018 Fast5 Netball World Series; this came off the back of being a member of the national under-21 team which won the 2017 Netball World Youth Cup. She made her debut for the New Zealand national netball team in the January 2019 Quad Series against England, though she missed out on selection for that year's World Cup. Shortly afterwards she was signed by Australian team Collingwood Magpies in the Suncorp Super Netball league, as a replacement player for the injured Madi Browne. Poi played for the second half of the 2019 season, making seven appearances for the Magpies and featuring at wing-attack.
