Colin Hanks calls Calgary winter ‘demoralizing’


TORONTO — Actor Colin Hanks, who spent last winter in Alberta making the TV series Fargo, has described Calgary’s weather as “demoralizing.”

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hanks said: “It was cold, there’s no way around it.”

The cold, he said, “could be pretty tiring, pretty exhausting, pretty demoralizing, at times.”

The 36-year-old star recalled seeing the crew covering the camera in an electric blanket so that it would continue to work.

“You find ways to get through it,” said Hanks, who earned an Emmy nomination for his work as police officer Gus Grimly.

Cold weather in early December prompted producers to temporarily halt filming.

In April, Fargo co-star Bob Odenkirk said Calgary’s winter was “a shock.”

He told the Calgary Sun: “You’re reminded people choose to live in these places.”
