#SPOTTED: IN TORONTO – DEEPIKA PADUKONE, RICKY WHITTLE, MICHAEL BISPING, DYLAN BRUCE, WES CHATHAM + DOMINIQUE TIPPER
It was a crazy weekend for star-spotting in Toronto – but with temperatures rising to 20°C, you’d be silly to stay in and not enjoy this well-deserved weather if you were a Celeb! We spotted cast members from xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, The Expanse, American Gods and Orphan Black. ALL IN THE SPAN OF 90 MINUTES!
xXx: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE
With much of filming taking place in Hamilton of late for this Blockbuster starring Vin Diesel, we’re still seeing additions to the Cast roll into the City. With MMA star Conor McGregor dropping out last month to focus on training, fellow Brit and middleweight fighter Michael Bisping more than ably fills the role of Hawk, arriving recently to begin work from L.A. He was amazingly nice to stop today for a Snap while heading out to run errands. No jacket required, indeed. We love that he even “liked” our Selfie!
This next sighting we know you’ll be REALLY excited about. We basically made the news allover the papers in India back in February when spotting her boyfriend and fellow Bollywood megastar Ranveer Singh, who flew-in to spend Valentine’s Day with her and also enjoy he NBA All Star Weekend! Deepika Padukone needs no introduction in her native India, but soon she will garner fans all around the world with her starring role as Serena in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage in which she stars opposite Diesel. She was out and about with her parents today and after we spotted her arriving back at her place, she was more than nice to stop for Selfies with her Mom giving her the “okay”! It was quick though as she head back into her building after a few snaps only, giving a gracious wave. We love her. Read about that time we met Ranveer here. We’ve had pretty good luck with most of the Cast, although we’re still holding out on that Selfie with Diesel! January 2017, guys!! Can’t wait.
We adore Brit import Ricky Whittle and are thrilled that things are on the up-and-up for him after his sudden exit from The CW‘s The 100. He begins work on Starz‘s American Gods and although we hear he just found himself a house for his stay while filming the upcoming series, he was really nice to stop today and spend a good 10 minutes with Fans, doing Snaps, Selfies and Autographs, genuinely absorbing all the love. We love the Snap he did with us, which he Tweeted to his amazing Fans!
You definitely recognize him from The Hunger Games and The Help, and Georgia native Wes Chatham is back in town to film the second season of SyFy’s The Expanse in the role of Amos Burton. He was spotted doing a quick read-through with British Co-Star Dominique Tipper (Vampire Academy) over lunch. The latter stars as Naomi Nagata and the series has a pretty stacked Cast including Thomas Jane, Shohreh Aghdashloo and more.
Although he’s no longer on internationally-acclaimed Orphan Black as Paul Dierden, which just wrapped recently in the City, Dylan Bruce was spotted around town on some down time. It appears that he’s next working on a TV Film called Midnight, Texas. Despite being caught off guard a bit, he was awesome to accommodate Selfies! We met him a couple years back at Soho House and remember him being just as cool!
