The Vancouver Art Gallery has been transformed to look like the New York Public Library. 🍎
Vancouver residents accepted the views of New York City as part of a movie for a TV show that was filmed downtown.
The production company GEP Resident Inc. turned scenes for Resident foreigner in the city on Wednesday (November 10th) and locals used social media to share pictures and videos from the set.
The show airs on SYFY (short for Sci-Fi Channel) and stars Alan Tudyk as an alien named Harry. Harry assumes “the identity of a Colorado doctor and slowly begins to struggle with the moral dilemma of his secret mission to Earth,” according to IMDb.
The show recently won Best Cable Comedy at the Hollywood Critics Association Awards.
A New Westminster resident shared a video of Tudyk and actress Sara Tomko in a parking lot. He wrote that “he was dancing (bouncing) to the sound of the alarm”.
