SET: CEDAR COVE’s Christmas in July with Andie MacDowell & Dylan Neal

IF

As Christmas approached in the Hallmark Channel series Cedar Cove, Jack (Dylan Neal) walked by a festively-decorated cafe in Philadelphia played by the Bean Around the World cafe at Victory Square, with dozens of Vancouver extras in the background bundled up in winter coats and scarves during July heat.

Christmas movies and episodes are often filmed in the summer and summer scenes are sometimes filmed in December and January with fake leaves added to bare tree branches and extras shivering in thin clothing. In Cedar Cove’s two-part season one finale, Jack ultimately returned to Cedar Cove where he reconciled with Olivia (Andie MacDowell) and we got to see the completely over-the-top Christmas decorations [...]

Based on Debbie Macomber’s best-selling books, Cedar Cove is about the life of Judge Olivia Lockhart (Andie MacDowell), both in and out of the courtroom. Here she is walking on the beach with the Cedar Cove Chronicle editor Jack Griffith (Dylan Neal). The Hallmark Channel series started filming here in late March and will wrap its first season in late July. Most of the action takes place in and around Fort Langley, but scenes in the cove are filmed in North Vancouver’s Deep Cove. Last Friday, Cedar Cove shot Judge Olivia (MacDowell) riding her bike in Panorama Park, walking with Jack on the beach  and then on the government dock. All on a perfect May day. No wonder L’Oreal used Andie [...]
