#SPOTTED: ELIZABETH BANKS + GINA RODRIGUEZ IN TORONTO FILMING “MRS. AMERICA” + “AWAKE”
It was a star-studded weekend indeed in Toronto and adding further to it all were a couple stars we spotted returning back to the City to work! Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin) stars in Netflix Thriller AWAKE. The Series centers around a global event which wipes out all electronics, leading to people not being able to sleep and the chaos that results from this. Jennifer Jason Leigh, Barry Pepper, Shamier Anderson and Gil Bellows also star, and the Product wraps end of September. We’ve always remembered Rodriguez to be incredibly-kind in our travels to New York seeing her there and also back here when she came to TIFF with Deepwater Horizon! And newsflash! She hasn’t changed.
We love Elizabeth Banks so much and were so surprised to see her back in town to work on F/X Mini-Series MRS. AMERICA, directed by Cate Blanchett. The Series documents an Activist’s fight against the Equal Rights Movement and boasts an incredible Cast led by Blanchett, also starring Tracey Ullman, John Slattery, James Marsden, Rose Byrne, Sarah Paulson, Uzo Aduba and several more, including Banks. We are so stoked to see Banks’ take on Charlie’s Angels (out November), which she helmed. She also continues to be an amazing Horse Racing ambassador and we hope to see her at the Breeders’ Cup this Fall if she’s done work on Mrs. America! We are so delighted to hear she loved going to Saratoga as a kid. And we just returned from our first trip there a couple weeks ago!

#SPOTTED: STARS BACK IN TORONTO FROM SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2019
It was a gruelling weekend temperature-wise in Toronto but these lucky stars escaped the humidity, appearing at San Diego Comic-Con! Like all good things, the fun must come to an end and they returned back to the City to continue work on their respective projects.
Amazon Prime‘s THE BOYS comes out of Comic-Con with a lot of buzz and while the first season still hasn’t premiered on the streaming service, it already has been green-lit for a second season in Toronto. Production already began in June and wraps this November. We spotted several of its stars including Chace Crawford, Karl Urban, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Tomer Capon and Nathan Mitchell. The Series premieres July 26, 2019.
Wynonna Earp‘s Kat Barrell also was spotted returning back to Toronto, along with Star Trek: Discovery’s lead actress, Sonequa Martin-Green. The Series wraps production February 2020.
Rachael Harris, who has had turns on New Girl and The Good Wife, returns to Toronto to work on the ninth and final season of SUITS. Filming wraps late August.
Also seen was Mad Men‘s John Slattery, who is in-town filming F/X Mini-Series Mrs. America, directed by and starring Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett. It wraps in November.
