Jennifer Lopez films hilarious TikTok with co-star on B.C. film set (VIDEO)

"Jenny from the block" was bustin' some moves in B.C. 🤩

Jennifer Lopez is sharing a fun moment she had with a co-star on a B.C. film set. 

The popular singer, actress, producer, and dancer was in Vancouver filming a Netflix thriller called The Mother that also stars Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare In Love), Omari Hardwick (Power), and Gael Garcia Bernal (Y Tu Mamá También). 

Lopez plays an assassin who comes out of hiding to protect her daughter that she gave up while she was on the run from dangerous men, according to Variety.

"Jenny from the Block" filmed several scenes in Vancouver before the production moved up to Smithers — a small town in northwestern B.C.— to resume filming.

Jennifer Lopez filming in Vancouver 

In September, production company Great Lakes Pictures ULC alerted residents of the Downtown Eastside that actors would be rehearsing scenes in Victory Square and a nearby EasyPark parkade. 

The shoot called for a kidnapping scene that involved "high-speed vehicle movement" on the 200 block of West Hastings, the 400 and 500 blocks of Cambie Street, and the "lane south of 100 West Pender." One of the scenes calls for "simulated gunfire," too. 

Vancouverites also shared photos of the actress and her stunt double on set in the city.
