#SPOTTED: ÉVELYNE BROCHU + DUSTIN MILLIGAN IN TORONTO FOR “X COMPANY” SEASON TWO
After a successful first season which just saw multiple Canadian Screen Award nominations, CBC series X COMPANY begins its second season tonight. Stars Évelyne Brochu (Orphan Black) and Dustin Milligan (90210, Schitt’s Creek) are in Toronto right now promoting the Series which promises to be darker and gritter than its first installment. The Series centers around five secret agents who receive special training near Lake Ontario during World War II.
We caught up with stars Milligan and Brochu earlier today at a promotional stop-off and they were amazingly-nice to stop in the cold for Fans:

Honouring some of the most significant Females in Canadian Film, Telefilm Canada and Maison Birks honoured ten Women Actors and Directors at their Flagship Toronto Store today at the first ever Diamond Tribute to the Year’s Women in Film. The Event was timed while all eyes are on Toronto during the Toronto International Film Festival.

Directors: Louise Archambault, Deepa Mehta, Alanis Obomsawin, Sarah Polley and Chloé Robichaud
Actresses: Évelyne Brochu, Geneviève Bujold, Sarah Gadon, Jessica Paré and Alison Pill

Among those in attendance this year were several familiar Canadian faces including the likes of Kelly Rowan, Anthony Lemke, Katie Boland, Aaron Abrams, Kristin Booth, Rob Stewart, Cynthia Preston, Atom Egoyan, Paul Haggis, Liane Balaban, Michael Seater and several more. TIFF Rising Stars, Cara Gee and Johnathan Sousa also came out to celebrate.
