After filming for the past half-year in Toronto, DC’s upcoming “Titans” TV series finally wraps production. Of course, living in the city’s Entertainment District, it was inevitable that some cast would be seen in my area during their stay.
Brenton Thwaites was by far the nicest, most laid back guy I’ve ever met. For some reason, he was actually surprised he had fans when we first met. You’d think he would be used to it having been in big movies like Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
The Australian actor, who has starred in such films as Maleficent, The Giver, and Oculus, was the most encountered of the cast.
He must like going out a lot because I saw Brenton a few times walking around in my area, but there was one time my friend and I saw him going into a movie theatre and he was so cool about meeting us again after his film was done. I was even able to get a few things from home for him to autograph after!
A few other cast spotted were Teagan Croft (The Osiris Child), Anna Diop (24: Legacy), Alan Ritchson (Aquaman, “Smallville”; Raphael, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” films), Minka Kelly (Almost Human), Seamus Dever (Kevin Ryan, “Castle”), and Curran Walters.
On one occasion, we went to witness “Titans” filming in Toronto’s Financial District. It would be the first instance where the costumes were leaked to the public via rumour sites. It was also the first time we finally spotted Ryan Potter but he was not able to take pictures due to him wearing his costume. Sigh.
Based on DC Comics, “Titans” stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson/Robin, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy. The show is scheduled to debut in 2019.
