KELOWNA - Lake Country’s Kangaroo Creek Farm had a visitor this week that’s been in space, rubbed shoulders with the royal family and battled superheroes — on screen, anyway.

“We had a visit from Neil McDonough and his wife and friends on the weekend,” reads a post on Kangaroo Creek Farm’s Facebook page.

“He's playing the role of General James Harding in Project Blue Book filming in Kamloops.”

McDonough is an American actor and voice actor, known for his portrayal of Lieutenant Lynn "Buck" Compton in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers, Deputy District Attorney David McNorris on Boomtown, Sean Cahill on Suits, Robert Quarles on Justified, William Parker in Mob City, and Dave Williams on ABC's Desperate Housewives.

He also appeared in films such as Star Trek: First Contact, Minority Report, Walking Tall and as Dum Dum Dugan in various Marvel Cinematic Universe films. His voice has been used for a variety of comic superheroes and villains in a number of animated films and video games.

Of course, he’s not the first actor to make his way to the Okanagan. Actors like Nicholas Cage and Kim Coates have recently been spotted either working or playing in the Okanagan. And there are all those NHL players who make their way through or call the valley home.

And, there have even been a few famous faces who have called this valley home before they were famous.

Taylor Kitsch was here last year for a tour through memory lane, making stops at the Ogopogo and at a baseball diamond.

He is best known for his work in portraying Tim Riggins in the NBC television series Friday Night Lights. He’s also worked in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Battleship, John Carter, Savages and Lone Survivor.

Kitsch is also starred in the second season of the HBO series True Detective as Paul Woodrugh.
