For some Canadian TV viewers, Erin Karpluk will forever be known as the young woman coming to terms with herself with the help of an unconventional therapist in the comedy-drama Being Erica.
In the new Family Channel series Holly Hobbie (debuting Saturday at 11:30 a.m.) Karpluk is the one offering guidance as the mother of the lead character, 13-year-old Holly.
It’s part of the evolution of her career, she said in a phone interview.
“I’m getting older as an actress,” said Karpluk, who’s 40. “I’m taking on more mature roles.”
