21 April 2019 – Actress Salma Hayek has spent Easter in Croatia by going on a truffle hunt.
Hayek, who arrived in Croatia at the start of April to film The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard in Rovinj, sent Easter wishes to her fans today on Instagram from Rovinj.
“Happy Easter from Croatia!”, Hayek wrote as she posed with an Easter egg in front of the Old Town of Rovinj on Sunday.
With the Istria renowned for being home to truffles, Hayek later went on a truffle hunt.
“This Easter instead of hunting for eggs I went truffle hunting with the help of Zara and Mala,” she said.
Hayek has been enjoying her stay in Croatia with fellow co-stars in The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson.
Filming started on 6 April in Rovinj and was scheduled to last 49 days in Croatia until the end of May. Other locations selected for shooting along with Rovinj are Zagreb, Rijeka and the Karlovac surrounding regions. Croatia plays the roles of ‘Italy’, the Mediterranean climate and Croatia itself in the film.
There are over 220 Croatian film professionals working in production, and more than 760 extras will be engaged. The film is set to be released early 2020
