Julianne Hough Filming in North Carolina on August 8, 2012
It's almost time for Julianne Hough to wrap filming on Safe Haven in Southport, N.C. The two-time Dancing With the Stars winner has been filming the Nicholas Sparks adaptation since mid-June. She plays the main character, Katie, opposite Josh Duhamel as Alex.
On Wednesday, August 8, filmmakers re-enacted a Fourth of July parade in the small town, as well as a waterfront market and a dance at the community building. A crowd of extras gathered downtown early in the day and Julianne was spotted — looking beautiful in a dark red spaghetti-strap dress — posing for a photo with a member of the sheriff's department while waiting for filming to resume. Wetpaint Entertainment snapped these exclusive photos of Julianne as she hung out behind-the-scenes.
According to Southport's State Port Pilot, filming of the parade was expected to go as late as 2 a.m. Thursday. Monday is expected to be the film's last day shooting in Southport. While Julianne has been in N.C., her American Idol host boyfriend Ryan Seacrest has visited her and she had a chance to enjoy the real Fourth of July fireworks with Josh’s superstar wife, Fergie.
Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars will premiere on Monday, September 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Check out the full All-Stars cast list here.
