On January 26, 2016, Portage Atlantic was pleased to welcome Robert Maillet, a French Canadian Actor from Eastern Canada, also known for his professional wrestling career, as a guest speaker. The youth in drug addiction rehabilitation treatment were captivated by his stories from Hollywood and the World Wrestling Entertainment.
Having worked on such movies as 300 (2007), Sherlock Holmes (2009), Immortals (2011), Pacific Rim (2013), Brick Mansions (2014), and Hercules (2014), Robert gave them an insight into all the work that goes into making a major motion picture. He encouraged them to keep working hard on their rehabilitation and to pursue their dreams.
