Actress Vera Farmiga was spotted with husband Renn Hawkey and their two kids – son Fynn, 4, and 2 1/2-year-old daughter Gytta – arriving at the Vancouver International Airport on Tuesday (July 16). A couple days later (July 18), the family-of-four were seen strolling in the Canadian city.
Vera and her family are in town while she begins filming the second season of Bates Motel. The actress, 39, just received an Emmy nomination for her role as Norma Bates in the A&E drama.
On Thursday, Vera opened up to EW about receiving news of her Emmy nod.
“My husband watched it live online and I was awakened with coffee and the good news,” she said.
She added: He’s my biggest fan and he was really rooting for this to happen. I have to tell you, this was a really interesting experiment. I didn’t really campaign for this one. Not a lot. I did about three interviews. I know how hard I worked and I know how challenged I was and I know the input into this characterization — just psychically, spiritually, emotionally, physically — for me. And it was interesting, I didn’t do much campaigning. I can see the women that did. And I was wondering if that was going to play out. It was my little experiment. And I’m in Vancouver in preproduction on round 2 for Bates.”
