Celebrity Travel: Go away with Madison Shamoun
“Black-ish” actress Madison Shamoun’s latest role is opposite Julie Stiles in the Prime Video series “The Lake.” “I play a girl named Billie Barnes who is reluctantly spending the summer with her birth father in Canada,” said Shamoun. “We filmed the entirety of the show in North Bay (in Northeastern) Ontario. It’s a really small town a few hours outside of Toronto.”
Q: Where else have you filmed on location?
A: I’ve shot (other projects) in the Mojave Desert, northern Ontario, Los Angeles and San Diego.
Q: What are your five favorite cities?
A: Have to say Los Angeles since it’s my hometown. Then Paris, New York, Amsterdam and Maui! But Dublin, London and Toronto are up there as well.
Q: What is your favorite vacation destination and what would you recommend tourists do there?
A: Picking a favorite anything is so hard. I really do love Paris, though. I would say get all the big touristy museums out of the way first so you can spend most of your time just walking around the city. Eat, eat, eat, all the food. And if you’re a fan of ramen, the best I’ve ever had in my life is from Naritake (Ramen). It’ll change your life.
Q: What untapped destination should people know about?
A: Chiang Mai. It’s in the northern part of Thailand and it is one of my favorite places I’ve ever been. It’s a really affordable travel destination, but more than that some of the best street food can be found there. There are also many elephant sanctuaries where you can feed and wash and care for the rescued wildlife. And zipline!
