Elle (Canada) - - News -

I love all types of travel, from camp­ing to drink­ing wine in Paris. I think it’s be­cause I’m su­per-Gemini and mixed race and kind of scat­tered, so it makes sense that I’m all over the place,” says ac­tress Lyn­die Green­wood, who re

lo­cated to Wilm­ing­ton ear­lier this year for her role as Jenny Mills on Sleepy Hol­low. You might also rec­og­nize the 31-year-old as Sonya from Nikita, which was shot in her home­town of Toronto from 2010 to 2013. “Fly­ing back and forth

is ex­haust­ing, so I’m re­ally set­tling in to the South­ern hos­pi­tal­ity here,” she says.

BLACK BOOK: NORTH CAROLINA Best lunch “9 Bak­ery & Lounge in down­town Wilm­ing­ton. I get this amaz­ing black-bean burger with av­o­cado-corn-tomato salsa.” Favourite shop “Edge of Urge in Wilm­ing­ton is my goto for clothes and cool cross-stitch ideas. The owner, Jessie Wil­liams, and her de­signer friends make all sorts of hand­made clothes, ac­ces­sories and art. And they carry lots of other amaz­ing brands too.” Ex­er­cise time “I love go­ing for runs with my house­mate, Ka­tia Winter [who plays Ka­t­rina Crane on Sleepy Hol­low]. We run along Carolina Beach and then jump into the ocean af­ter­wards. That’s a nice af­ter­noon.” Week­end get­away “I re­cently went to Asheville to see the moun­tains and eat some amaz­ing food. Cúrate is a de­li­cious Span­ish tapas house, and MG Road is fan­tas­tic for cock­tails—I know they were good, but I for­get ex­actly what I had be­cause I’d had quite a few by the end of the night.” [Laughs]

GLOBAL AD­DRESS BOOK Set­jet­ting bucket list “I am a huge Juras­sic Park fan, so I would love to go to Hawaii to check out where it was filmed—and New Zealand to visit sites from the Lord of the Rings movies. I get so in­vested in movies, I just want to see where they were made.” Cast­mate hang­outs “When I filmed Nikita in Toronto, the cast used to go to Lo­cal Kitchen at Queen and Ron­ces­valles, Mid­field, which is an awe­some wine bar at Dun­das and Glad­stone, and Cold Tea, a great bar in Kens­ing­ton Mar­ket.” Fam­ily re­union “My first big trip ever was to Tobago when I was 16. Pi­geon Point Beach was so beau­ti­ful, and I got to meet a lot of my mom’s fam­ily—that trip re­ally sparked my travel bug.” Europe bound “One of the most beau­ti­ful things I’ve ever seen was the Cliffs of Mo­her when I was on a road trip in Ire­land. The views are just mag­i­cal!”

FLIGHT PLANS Win­dow or aisle “I’m an aisle girl. I get a lit­tle claus­tro­pho­bic.” In­flight en­ter­tain­ment “Crossstitch—I find it re­ally re­lax­ing to create my own de­signs.” Pack­ing style “Sim­ple. I only like carry-ons, and I pack as lit­tle as pos­si­ble.”
