Viewers may see Love Again star Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Sam Heughan in a couple with Celine Dion but what they see may not be what it seems. )Entertainment Weekly They never actually filmed any scenes with the Grammy-winning artist himself in the latest rom-com, and the reason isCoronavirus-19. “We were shooting during a pandemic when it was obviously very difficult for people to travel, so we did shoot a lot on set and on green screen,” Heughan said. “That’s one of the challenges of working during a pandemic.”
Outlander actor explained he and Joop La Jonas filmed in the UK while Dion was in Canada, which made it difficult. Citadel actress points out that they are in Hollywood figuring out “how to navigate COVID. A lot of times, we can’t all travel together. It was right from the start.”
But thanks to the director, movie extras and Dion, Heughan says it all ended up being came together.
“I think they worked some great magic in the movie, and I think those scenes really work,” he added. “The director, Jim [Strauss], he’s such an amazing guy, and it just worked so closely with him. We got extras and people to read [Dion’s] lines. Honestly, Celine herself is such a professional People, that’s [why] it really worked out.”
Her fiancé died by sending romantic text messages to his old cell phone number. But she doesn’t realize that the newcomer has the number – reporter Rob Burns (Heughan). When he begins to fall in love with her romantic messages, he recruits superstar Celine Dion (playing herself) at the center of his latest profile story to help win her over.
