Amanda Tapping is currently shooting a new feature by indie filmmaker Katrin Bowen in her home town, Vancouver. Headlining the film Random Acts of Romance, Amanda plays Dianne, a teacher supporting a former student and lover (Zak Santiago) who hasn’t grown up.
Random Acts is described as a sexy, hilarious comedy feature about intense characters in extreme relationship situations.
Santiago also has a history on Stargate, playing Rogelio Duran in the SG-1 two-parter “Evolution.” More recently, he played Corporal Rivers on Stargate Universe.
Amanda and Zak are joined by Katherine Isabelle (Valencia in SG-1‘s “Camelot”), Robert Moloney (Atlantis‘s Koracen and SG-1‘s Borren), Laura Bertram (Andromeda), Ted Whitall, and Sonja Bennett (Dahlia Radim on Stargate Atlantis).
Filming wraps around February 17 and all indications from her Twitter feed is that she is enjoying the project immensely.
