Several big-name actors are currently filming some major projects in Victoria


A number of film projects have begun shooting in the Greater Victoria area this spring.

Maid, a ten part series on Netflix, has been shooting in the West Shore since September, and American Dreamer, a feature film starring Peter Dinklage, started shooting last month.

There have been reports of Peter Dinklage, who gained fame as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, and Community actor Danny Pudi spotted around Victoria.

Other actors slated for screen time in American Dreamer are Danny Glover, from Lethal Weapon, and Matt Dillon, from There’s Something About Mary.

Actress Shirley MacLaine is also set to star in the film.

Here’s what IMDb said about the pending film:

“Phil is a dreamer. Most dreams don’t come true. Phil hates that. But that’s not going to stop Phil from dreaming.”

Last week, film crews were on set at the Legislature in downtown Victoria, and this week, a mock farmer’s market was created near Fernwood Square.

American Dreamer is scheduled to shoot until April 16th.

Filming for Maid at Lagoon Beach began yesterday, April 7th, and should wrap up today.

A premiere date for either project has yet to be announced.
