Toronto's venerable Fairmont Royal York claims to be the hotel with the longest Silver Screen resume.
The city landmark might not have won any Oscars, but she has certainly had more than her fair share of Hollywood credits.
Playing stunt double for other cities and hotels around the world -- most recently standing in for Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park, in the action comedy RED, when Helen Mirren needed a kitchen for a shoot out -- the Royal York has had countless movie and TV roles.
A sampling from her diverse casting sheet includes: The Killing Fields (1984); Serendipity (2000); Brian's Song (2001); The Tuxedo (2001); New York Minute (2004); Cinderella Man (2005); Where the Truth Lies (2005); Hollywood Land (2006); Take the Lead (2006); Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium (2007); Max Payne (2008); Amelia (2009); Grey Gardens (2009); Chloe (2009); and many, many more.
