Why are there so many Canadian actors/actresses cast for Smallville dvds ? Everytime I read about the characters of Smallville dvds , theres someone new who’s canadian lol. Are they running out of skilled or good-looking American actors/actresses?
Just curious, thats all.
It is not just Smallville... Canada is a very tax friendly locale for shooting TV series & movies. The financial incentives is why a *lot* of stuff is filmed up there.
Fringe is a perfect example. The first season was shot in the US & on location but for the second season it is switching to Canada to cut custs. If you've ever watched a show and some of the scene backgrounds look 'different' in later seasons versus the first season, a good reason why is likely that the first season was shot on location while the other seasons where shot on a set in Canada to cut costs.
