It was an awesome Easter/Passover Long Weekend in Toronto. Some stars arrived back in town, some stayed in town!
As production is set to resume on the eighth season of acclaimed Series Suits this week, Amanda Schull who stars as Katrina Bennett and was upgraded recently to a Series Regular, made her way back to town with husband George Wilson. With stars Patrick J. Adams and Meagan Markle exiting the Series, we see some exciting additions to the Cast like Katherine Heigl (Grey’s Anatomy) who just arrived last week.

While Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy continues to film around town through July and potentially August, we haven’t seen many of its stars around but one interesting thing is that Mindhunter star Cameron Britton has been cast as Hazel in the Series based on My Chemical Romance Frontman Gerard Way‘s Comic Book Series. Other recent additions include R&B Queen and Actress Mary J. Blige.

For the Soccer fans, Mexico’s Club América arrived to much fanfare at the Airport which hoards of fans and Media awaiting their arrival. They will be in a much-awaited clash against Toronto FC! Hover cursor left and right to navigate the slideshow!
Some other talent we’ve seen around town, although exactly what for, still is unconfirmed:
We also saw Ruby O. Fee, a German Actress finishing the last leg of filming for Jonas Åkerlund‘s Assassin Thriller POLAR starring Katheryn Winnick, Vanessa Hudgens and MadsMikkelsen.

The Cast of Shazam! continue to make a splash around the City and we love following how big a family they’ve become over Social Media, bonding over TV, Movies and game nights. They even went to CN Tower together last week and also had a special private screening of Ready Player One at Warner Bros. Pictures Canada‘s Head Office uptown. Film wraps May.
The Cast largely have been really nice to fans and we have been extra cautious with the younger talent ensuring their caretakers and parents were okay with photos.
A Reader who requested to remain anonymous sent us this Snap of Zachary Levi in-costume as he filmed on-location a while back. The costume appears faithful to the original Comics. Dare we say it may even veer a bit to the nostalgic/campy?
Expect a huge unveil July at San Diego Comic Con after it wraps here in May. Warner Bros. Pictures Canada release SHAZAM!April 2019.
DC COMICS’ SHAZAM is in full swing and we are seeing even more Cast additions arrive in Toronto for filming. While Asher Dov Angel who plays the leading role of Billy Batson in the Film, was busy promoting THE ANDI MACK SHOW Season Three in New York this Family Day weekend, his Co-Stars had a little family bonding of their own over an all-you-can-eat wings dinner at Hooters in the City’s Entertainment District.
We spotted the Film’s adoptive dad CooperAndrews, known best for his work on AMC‘s The Walking Dead along with his screen wife Marta Milans (The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby), Grace Fulton (Revenge, Annabelle: Creation), Jovan Armand (The Middle) and Ian Chen (Fresh Off the Boat) out together for dinner with their own respective parents. Jack Dylan Grazer whom we spotted a few weeks back also was out with them! Coincidentally, we spotted the gang a bit later at Starbucks. The Barista who probably recognized their familiar faces asked them, “Are you guys from here?”. 🙄
They all head to historic Casa Loma after dinner. Action-packed!
The gang were nice to stop for Selfies in the rain as they tackle a new week of filming! See our Snaps!
