Where’s your favourite place in St.John’s, NL to grab a coffee?

Definitely the Rocket Bakery in downtown St. John’s. It’s this place on Water St and they have an amazing bakery also. I liked to walk there, grab my coffee and then go sit by the sea.

Where’s your favourite place in  St.John’s, NL to grab a pint?

Blue - I like the big windows looking out onto Water St.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in  St.John’s, NL?

I love Twisted Sister - it has fun clothing, shoes from Shellys & Hunter Rain boots which one needs in St.John’s! My favourite store would have to be HOME which is this cute little place with lovely things for the home (obviously) - I have little silver bird salt & pepper shakers from there.

Where in  St.John’s, NL would we stand to see your favourite view

Actress Georgina Reilly on Signal HillSignal Hill. It never gets old for me. Every time I visit, we always do the walk. I love it because living in Toronto you don’t have that kind of space.

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit St.John’s, NL:

1. Signal Hill - but properly, walk up and down it. Not drive.

2. Stay a night at Ryan Mansion - it’s beautiful

3. Go to Bistro Sofia - they have the best Caesar salad in the world.

What makes the St.John’s, NL such a special place for you?

St.John’s was my first acting gig outside of Ontario. It was so exciting to get to fly somewhere for work and St.John’s is such a beautiful place.

Actress Georgina Reilly with Republic of Doyle star Mark O'Brien on Signal HillI fell in love immediately because it reminded me of the UK. The people, the scenery.

It has become a second home for me since then because as you know Mark lives there half the year.

I’m really happy that I get to visit it so often!
