Lights! Camera! Action!

A TV movie – The Convenient Groom – is being shot at the Prestige Hotel this week.

The movie stars U.S. actress Vanessa Marcil (General Hospital and Beverly Hills, 90210) and Canadian actor David Sutcliffe (Gilmore Girls and Cracked).

The Convenient Groom centres around a young celebrity marriage counsellor who is left at the altar of her own highly publicized wedding. To save face, she accepts an offer from her contractor – who secretly has a crush on her – to step in as groom and marry her.

Filming began on Monday and continues through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

All extras hired are from the Island, and one hair and makeup trainee has been hired from Sooke.
