#SPOTTED: ALEXANDER SIDDIG IN TORONTO FILMING “RECON”
English Thespian Alexander Siddig already has quite the cult following, known affectionately as Dr. Julian Bashir for his work in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Add to that his body of work which includes the likes of Game of Thrones, Syriana, Cairo Time, Atlantis and Primeval, Toronto once again welcomes the star back as he begins work on FOX TV Pilot RECON. Siddig in previous years has been in the City for TIFF for Inescapable and Cairo Time.
According to Synopsis, the Pilot centers around Alexa (Tracy Spiridakos), a young, driven FBI analyst tasked with embedding herself in a suspected terrorist family. Siddig plays her target Omar, a father, husband and devout Muslim who has no idea the Feds have been tracking his every move.
We spotted Siddig doing groceries earlier and he was a great sport about stopping for a quick Selfie, telling a Fan in a T-Shirt to keep warm!
