Alan Arkin on Living in Cape Breton

LIVING THE CAPE BRETON LIFE - Q&A with Alan Arkin

Q&A: Tiffany Thornton


Academy Award-winning actor Alan Arkin has been entertaining film audiences for decades in movies ranging from “Catch-22” to "Argo" and "Little Miss Sunshine".

Yet a little known fact is Arkin’s love for Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island, where he spends several months a year cultivating a quieter life. Local Connections Halifax chats exclusively with the actor on natural beauty, culinary musts and how he got his start.
