Resident Alien has arrived in Ladysmith.
Filming began Monday morning and will continue until Thursday, January 30.
1st Avenue and Roberts Street was the site for much of Monday’s filming. Businesses were open as per usual. There was minimal interruption to road and pedestrian traffic. RCMP on scene said everything was going smoothly, and people were excited to see filming in Ladysmith.
One Ladysmith resident, Lacey Bryce said the show is ‘right up her alley’.
“I quite like science fiction, and for this to be here in my hometown makes it even more interesting. I’m definitely going to be watching the show to see my town in it – just like Sonic,” Bryce said.
In general, filming will be between 8:00am and 9:00pm over the four days. Vehicles should expect some traffic control on 1st Ave and Roberts St during these hours. There are production staff ready to assist residents with any needs that are impacted by the filming.
