Sen. Zimmer's wife's acting debut

Maygan Sensenberger likely didn't expect her first 15 minutes of fame would come as the result of an outburst on an Air Canada flight between Ottawa and Saskatoon.

She pleaded guilty earlier this fall to causing a disturbance on an airplane after the incident, which made international headlines because she is 23, and her husband is 69-year-old Manitoba Liberal Senator Rod Zimmer.

Sensenberger and Zimmer both however seemed to hope perhaps the attention would help launch Sensenberger's acting and modeling career.

Her first short film, First Ladies, is now available on the web. It was part of the Digi60 Filmakers Festival recently in Ottawa. I'm not sure what the rating is but I'm pretty sure you should not let your children watch it with you.
