Kathleen Robertson was floored when she was asked to star in 'Down the Road Again,' a sequel of sorts to one of Canada's most acclaimed films, 'Goin' Down the Road' (1970). Roberts understands the depth and breadth of the original's influence; it was credited with inspiring 'Midnight Cowboy,' and it was raved about by New York and Los Angeles film critics.

It is widely regarded as one of the best and most influential Canadian films ever made, and has remained one of the top 10 films of all time in industry polls since 1984; Canada Post even issued a commemorative stamp in its honour. Director Don Shebib returns 40 years later with original cast members Jayne Eastwood and Doug McGrath, and teams them up with Robertson, their "new" Canadian/American actress. Moviefone spoke with Robertson on the Toronto set of 'Down the Road Again.'
