Where was “His Correspondent” filmed? Locations and distribution
Hallmark Channel’s newest film, “Her Pen Pal,” premieres Saturday, June 19 at 9 pm EST. The film stars Mallory Jansen and Joshua Sasse, and it was shot overseas. Here are all the details on where the movie was shot and the actors who brought the movie to life.
“Her Pen Pal” was mainly filmed in France
“Her Pen Pal” was filmed on location, mainly in Paris, France. Sasse and Jansen reunite after starring in the “Galavant” television series together. Some scenes were also shot in the region of Bulgaria, which Hallmark does frequently for films shot abroad. The film is from the Bulgarian Unified Production Organization, according to a press release.
Filming ended in early May.
Sasse must have held a prop for this scene, he revealed on Instagram.
Sasse shared a series of photos from the set and joked about having to eat baguettes, croissants and donuts during his scenes.
He liked to shoot in Paris. He shared with fans on Instagram: “What a blessing to work with you again my dear @mallory_jansen – I couldn’t have imagined filming in Paris with someone else. What a dream. Thank you @hallmarkchannel for such a great job, hope you all enjoy movie 1/2 as much as I do by making it. ‘Her Pen Pal’ is coming out this summer!
He said he only felt joy during the filming.
To shoot in Paris was a unique opportunity, he writes.
Lachlan Nieboer (who played Cameron) shared these photos from that day.
In April, Nieboer shared this photo while he was there.
Amanda Blake, who played Jen in the film, shared this photo while filming in Bulgaria. She wrote: “And this is a project on Jen 🎬 I barely have the words to describe what this one meant to me, but I loved this team and this little lady. She has a big heart.
Director Clare Niederpruem wrote of the shoot: “Overflowing with gratitude to have spent the past two weeks with this very special cast. A rare group of performers who brought individuality to their roles and added offscreen humor and cuteness to create our little family of films. It was a special little place in our corner of the world where art and connections were made… all with lots of laughs along the way.
She also shared a photo from the preparation of the film in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Jayne Wisener, who also stars in the lead, said she must have pinched herself while filming in Paris.
Amy Louise Pemberton shared these photos from the set.
