SHOOT: THE AGE OF ADALINE Hijinks With Blake Lively on Burnaby’s Barnet Beach


The Age of Adaline filmed scenes of immortal Adaline (Blake Lively) and companion laughing on a windy beach (Burnaby’s Barnet Beach) as their hats flew off (the flying yellow object is Blake Lively’s hat). Born in the early 1900s, Adaline is blessed with eternal youth after a near-fatal accident. Our heroine embarks on a solitary, world journey through the 20th century never aging beyond twenty-nine years until she falls in love with a young man (Game of Thrones’s Michiel Huisman) who might be worth losing her immortality to. Harrison Ford plays [an old flame of hers (literally)] and Ellen Burstyn her daughter.
