The snow and rain are setting in once again, but that isn’t stopping a whole host of film stars from heading to Hollywood North this month.

From rising young stars to legendary heartthrobs, you never know who you might see strolling along Granville Street.

Here are 16 famous faces you might be able to spot in Vancouver this month:

Kristen Connolly

This year has gotten off to a great start for Casey Affleck, who’s already won a Golden Globe for his performance in Manchester By The Sea – and is tipped for Oscar glory too.

It’s about to get even better for the actor and director, who’ll be in Vancouver through February and March to direct and star in his new film Light of My Life, .

The film tells the story of a father and his young daughter who find themselves trapped in the woods – perhaps they’ll get lost on the North Shore?
