Filming of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho prequel, Bate’s Motel, is underway in Vancouver. The casting is solid with recognizable faces in Vera Farmiga (The Departed, Up in The Air), Nestor Carbonell (Lost), Jere Burns (Burn Notice, Justified). Aside from Nestor, Bate’s Motel has another connection to ABC’s Lost in one of it’s Executive Producers, Carlton Cuse. I also recognized Keegan Connor Tracy, who had a recurring role on ABC’s Once Upon a Time which is also filmed and produced in Vancouver. Then there are sure-to-be-rising stars in lead actor Freddie Highmore and Max Thieriot (House at the End of the Street). But it’s not the cult-following or great casting that has people like me who live in Vancouver all excited, it’s the local faces! This includes young Conchita Campbell, Emmalyn Estrada and Brittney Wilson.
