When actors sign on for a movie, they never know what to expect as far as location. Many have had the opportunity of a lifetime in wonderful settings that allow them to enjoy and relax in between takes.
Sydney, Australia is one of the all time favorites, a definite hotspot for filming on location. Popular films such as “Independence Day,” “Moulin Rouge,” “The Matrix” and “Mission Impossible II” had segments that were filmed in the capital of the Land Down Under. When not filming, there are so many tourist spots that are frequented by actors for a really fun work session.
Rome, Italy is another film location that ranks at the top of the list for best film locations. Actors that go on italy tours cannot resist the atmosphere, the architecture, the food and the people. “Angels and Demons,” “The American,” “Eat,Pray,Love” and “Cleopatra” name only a few of the many movies that were made magical in lovely Italy. The villas, the sea and the Colliseum are only a few of the attractions with a rich night life to ensure a good time in the land of love.
Who can forget Manhattan and New York City? The Big Apple has made an appearance in countless films and actors truly come alive when they arrive in the city that never sleeps. The clubs, the restaurants, Central Park, the Met and so many other attractions bring them back after filming is done. Many an actor has accepted a job because of the big city.
Los Angeles is one of the most common locations to shoot films and one that many actors treat as home. That doesn’t mean that the city will ever grow old. “Die Hard,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” “Forrest Gump” and “Airplane” were born in Los Angeles and the spirit of each movie is sure to be carried through with the actors.
What about Barcelona, Spain? Such a colorful city is sure to be entertaining and memorable to any actor who has spent any length of time in this amazing country. “Fragile” and “The Cheetah Girls 2″ were both shot on Spanish theater. The spirit of the land had to rub off on actors as they explored all of the avenues for amusement during off hours. Regardless of location, actors often enjoy their regular pastimes as well as tourist spots while filming is under way. What a fascinating way to make a living.
