#SPOTTED: ALEX ELLIOTT STAR OF “THE HARDY BOYS” AND “TITANS” STAR BRENTON THWAITES IN TORONTO
Toronto’s Alex Elliott got a celebratory return home to Toronto after spending some time in L.A. Just as he arrived back, he learned that Hulu/YTV Series THE HARD BOYS, in which he stars as Joe Hardy, won a Canadian Screen Award for Best Children’s or Youth Fiction Program or Series. Director Melanie Orr also won for Directing. The second season of the Series just premiered last week in Canada on YTV! While we’re awaiting news of a third season, the Series continues to pick-up momentum and we wouldn’t be surprised if it’s here to stay for a while! Such a great guy! And he loved that I was rocking the merch!
Hit DC Comics Series TITANS began production on its fourth season late February and continues into the Summer in Toronto. Star Brenton Thwaites was spotted back in the City reprising his role as Dick Grayson/Nightwin/Robin. The Australian star was on a quick break from filming, returning back to work as his wife Chloe Pacey and three kids, remain back home. He was rocking two hats and was styling! Always nice seeing him, he’s so kind to fans.

#SPOTTED: BRENTON THWAITES + CURRAN WALTERS IN TORONTO FOR “TITANS”
As DC Comics’ TITANS continues to film throughout the City into May, the sightings also continue! Filming around Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market this past week, stars including the likes of Brenton Thwaites and Curran Walters have been spotted filming late into the evening. Together with some fans, we spotted the Actors on a break as they filmed a scene at a club. A manged vehicle and some propane were seen on-site meaning, suggesting some intense action.
As we know already, Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales) stars as Dick Grayson/Robin in the Series. Walters, who was seen recently in 20th Century Women alongside Greta Gerwig and Annette Bening, couldn’t confirm whom he will play although many fans online are speculating he will star as Jason Todd or Roy Harper. We’ll soon know we suppose!
Both Actors were amazingly-nice crossing the street to say “hi” and stop for photos with Fans. Thwaites, whose daughter Birdie just celebrated her second birthday we are told, held a cup of tea in-hand to stay warm and was a gentleman as we remembered him. Walters caught fans discussing whom he might possibly be playing and got a chuckle out of that! He tells us he is good friends with Ryan Potter (Big Hero 6), who plays Gar Logan/Beast Boy on the Series, hanging-out frequently.
TITANS, to be released on DC Comics‘ first-ever digital streaming service (still unnamed), wraps in May.

#SPOTTED: BRENTON THWAITES IN TORONTO FILMING “TITANS”
Australian Actor Brenton Thwaites has been in-town since late last year beginning work on DC Comics‘ latest television venture TITANS. The Series starring Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Gods of Egypt) tells Robin/Dick Grayson‘s journey to becoming a leader, coming out of Batman‘s shadow.
We spotted Thwaites recently at work on the Series which will be released in DC Comics‘ unnamed direct-to-digital service and he was amazing to stop after a long day of work. We were a bit confused as his stunt double in-costume came out the same time as him, unsure who to approach!
A first look at Thwaites as Robin surfaced in December and we must say, he looks amazing!
