About Me

Guy Castonguay

LOTUS Films was founded by long-time actor Guy Castonguay. He's worked with the likes of A-list actor, Robert Knepper (Prison Break, Heroes, Transporter 3).

Guy thoroughly enjoyed performing with Robert in the feature film Burning Daylight. Robert played the lead while Guy was in a supporting role. They developed a good working relationship, and someday they both would like to work with one another again.

After performing for over 20 years on stage, television, and film, Guy decided to venture off and create his own content. Thus, LOTUS Films was born.

The goal of LOTUS Films is to create entertaining and engaging content that incites curiosity and inspiration.
