OSOYOOS - An employee of a South Okanagan grocery store is becoming famous in her own right after a photo with her and Nicolas Cage was posted on Facebook yesterday.

Denise Gray says it "made her day” to have her photo taken with actor Nicolas Cage while working at Buy Low Foods in Osoyoos yesterday, Nov. 27.

“Sombody told me Nicolas Cage was in the store. I looked around and found him in the produce section,” Gray says, adding the movie star was very obliging, posing with her for the photo.

Gray says she probably wouldn’t have recognized the actor, but other employees did.

“It was quite a surprise. He bought quite a few groceries,” she says.

Gray says word on the street is he is making a movie in the area, with locations around Vaseux Lake and Rock Creek. She has also heard that Cage will be around for about a month.

Okanagan Film Commission Film commissioner Jon Summerland says he can “neither confirm or deny” a movie is being shot in the area with Nicholas Cage.

“I hope to see (Cage) again. I’d like to see the others with him,” she says, adding she’s also heard Clint Eastwood is in the area.
