#SPOTTED: DANIEL WEBBER IN TORONTO FOR “11-22-63”
Australian Actor Daniel Webber is a bit of an intriguing sort. The young star who has an extensive Résumé including TIFF Selection Sleeping Beauty, just arrived in Toronto and is set to begin filming next week on eagerly-awaited Hulu Series 11-22-63, based upon the Novel of the same name by Stephen King. Starring James Franco, the Series is about a Time Traveler who tries to go back in time to stop the Kennedy assassination.
We spotted Webber after a visit to the Wardrobe Department, his hair colour being prepped to replicate a young Lee Harvey Oswald (the Sniper who assassinated JFK) he will portray and he was lovely taking time to chat about his role, which will see him extremely busy these next few weeks! He found it amusing he even was asked for an Autograph and recognized, laughing “You guys are hilarious!”.

#SPOTTED: GEORGE MACKAY IN TORONTO FOR “11-22-63”
Based on the Stephen King Novel about a Time Traveler who goes back in time to try and stop the assassination for Robert J. Kennedy, 11-22-63 has been filming in the Greater Toronto Area this Summer under the guidance of Kevin MacDonald (The Last King of Scotland), starring James Franco. In recent weeks, filming has moved to Hamilton and Guelph.
We spotted one of its stars, George MacKay out and about this weekend and although he might be unfamiliar to many, Film Lovers will recognize him from TIFF ’14 Selection, PRIDE which played to a standing ovation. He tells me that he unfortunately couldn’t make it for the Festival last September, while most of his Co-Stars did, but meeting him randomly more than makes up for his absence!
11-22-63 films here through October, so expect to see some its Cast out and about come TIFF! Hulu will be streaming the exciting new Series.
