#SPOTTED: STARS DOMINIC SHERWOOD AND JORDAN C. ROBBINS AT THE GREENWOOD STAKES, PLUS PABLO SCHREIBER, EMMY RAVER-LAMPMAN, BEN HARPER, EMILY BROWNING IN TORONTO
What good is some sun on a weekend if it can’t be enjoyed right? We spotted some stars out and about this weekend including the hotly-buzzed Greenwood Stakes at Woodbine Racetrack, some returning back to work after a breather.
Our second home Woodbine Racetrack, was where it was at this past Saturday as Toronto’s A-List gathered under the sun trackside for cocktails, racing, music, fashion and fun at the Greenwood Stakes. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Vancouver’s Deighton Cup, the affair saw socalities abound including the likes of Suzanne Rogers, Glen Baxter (Fashion Television), Shadowhunters’ Dominic Sherwood, The Umbrella Academy‘s Jordan C. Robbins and more! Sherwood tells us he neither won or loss at the races, but does appear to know a thing or two having been to Royal Ascot in his native England.
We hope the bustling event which takes its inspiration from both Royal Ascot and the Kentucky Derby, will come back again soon!

We posted a complete Album on Facebook here.
Also don’t forget to check-out our Webseries with Woodbine Racetrack, MR. WILL’S PATH TO THE PLATE, as we near our favourite Festival of the Summer, the Queen’s Plate! Episodes are out every Thursday leading-up to the Festival and each week we meet a new Contender and the unsung heroes in their success stories!
Catch-up on episodes 1 though 4 here.
Emmy Raver-Lampman already is a star of the stage having appeared on Broadway in Wicked and Hamilton. She has landed a high-profile gig as Allison in Netflix‘s upcoming Series The Umbrella Academy based on My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way‘s Comic Books. While the Series isn’t due till 2019, it will continue to film till July in Toronto.
Three-time Grammy winner Ben Harper plays The Mod Club tonight in support of 14th Studio Disc No Mercy in this Land. The veteran Singer/Songwriter was all smiles arriving from L.A. with his Band and Crew.
We’ve had the pleasure of meeting Pablo Schreiber a few times now but it’s always nice seeing him, a class act. He returns to Toronto to begin work on season two of AMERICAN GODS after some delays. You know him as Pornstache from acclaimed Netflix Series Orange is the New Black, something which on paper seems unflattering but believe us, that is a good thing!
We have come so close to meeting Emily Browning a few times but we’re thrilled finally to get a Selfie with the talented Australian-born Actress. She filmed Pomepeii opposite Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) a few summers back and we missed her again when she promoted Legend alongside Tom Hardy at TIFF! While she was in a bit of a rush after waiting on all her luggage she was kind to stop for a rush of fans off her flight. Like Schreiber, she also stars in Series American Gods.

#FIRSTLOOK: TEASER TRAILER FOR “POMPEII”
Filmed in Toronto, a Teaser Trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson’s Pompeii has just surfaced. And although it is rather poetic, all eyes are on Kit Harington who clearly worked hard in preparation for his Leading Role, looking a vision of fitness. The Film is set around an ancient Roman Town which was destroyed following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. A Slave (Harington) must return back home to find the Woman (Emily Browning) he loves.
Watch the Trailer in full below:
eOne Films releases Pompeii on February 24, 2014.
We were lucky enough on multiple occasions to spot Harington out and about in Toronto. Read more about that here!
We also spotted his Co-Star Adewale (pronounced Ah-day-wa-lay) out and about too! More here.

#SPOTTED: KIT HARINGTON IN TORONTO FOR “POMPEII”
Toronto sure loves Game of Thrones and the latest Cast Member to grace our City is none other than Kit Harington. An no, that’s not Orlando Bloom whom he often is confused for! The 26-year-old Thespian Heartthrob arrived in Toronto last week to begin prep on Paul W. S. Anderson‘s (Resident Evil: Retribution, The Three Musketeers… Husband of Milla Jovovich) Action/Adventure Pompeii, which films later this month. And this of course wouldn’t be Harington‘s first time in Toronto though as he filmed Silent Hill: Revelation here early 2011.
Harington has been turning heads allover the City this past week with Fans taking to Twitter to voice their shock at seeing Jon Snow (his Game of Thrones Character) in-person on our streets. For once, some Snow in April is actually welcome! The incredibly kind Actor, who actually is even more handsome in-person, tells me he isn’t quite sure when some of his Co-Stars including Emily Browning (Sucker Punch), Jared Harris (Mad Men, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) and our v. own Kiefer Sutherland will be here. The Film centers around a Man condemned to Slavery on a ship, who must work his way home to save the Woman he loves and his Best Friend, a trapped Gladiator. Think Django Unchained, but not really! eOne Films will release Pompeii in 2014.
The Actor also recently revealed (pardon the pun) that a nude scene is forthcoming on the fourth season of Game of Thrones, although we don’t know exactly when. He tells the New York Daily News, “I’m fine with nudity actually. I think it’s one of those things…you take off your robe and you are nude.“.
I never leave my Readers empty-handed, so in celebration of our Spotting, let’s share an Autograph shall we? To enter to win a Signed Photo from Kit Harington, click “like” on this Post before May 1, 2013. Share this Post on Facebook and double your chances! All are welcome to enter.
And while we’re on the topic, let’s take a look back at some of the Game of Thrones Cast Members who’ve visited Toronto recently:
Game of Thrones can currently be seen on HBO Canada on Sunday nights at 9:00 PM EST.
