#SPOTTED: SOFIA BOUTELLA IN TORONTO FOR “FAHRENHEIT 451”
Few stars are rising faster than Sofia Boutella’s. The Algerian-French Actress/Dancer has been in Toronto for just over a week and today began work on HBO‘s dystopian Ray Bradbury Novel Adaptation, FAHRENHEIT 451. The Film, which she tells us will be released next September, stars also Michael B. Jordan (who also produces) and Michael Shannon.
Seen recently in KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE, STAR TREK BEYOND, THE MUMMY and currently in ATOMIC BLONDE, Boutella‘s streak isn’t stopping any time soon. Taking an unconventional path to Hollywood, once a dancer for Madonna, Boutella finally is ready for her close-up.
Since arriving in Toronto, Boutella has enjoyed a bit of downtime with her partner, actor Robert Sheehan (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones…also made in Toronto!) and found time to discover Kensington Market and see Kendrick Lamar in concert. She even stopped by the set in the City’s east end to say “hi” on her day off yesterday.
Boutella wrapping late on her first day on set, was amazing to stop for autographs and selfies at 2:00 AM wrapping a day in the west end. We loved meeting her and she had nothing but praise for Charlize Theron working with her on Atomic Blonde.
Production moves to Hamilton and Brampton shortly.
