“Vancouver I leave you with a heart full of love, and a head full of loss.”
Those are the words of Staz Nair who played the hardened reporter William Dey on the locally filmed show Supergirl. Filming wrapped last month so Nair is headed back to Los Angeles, according to his social media. But after spending the last year and a half in Vancouver, Nair wasn’t about to leave without saying a proper auf wiedersehen to the city.
“Leaving Vancouver is a loss I've never felt before. Though in reality I'm leaving not 'losing,' Nair wrote in a recent Instagram story. “For a man who hasn't lived in a place for more than 1.5 years in nearly 10 years. The loss is real. The people, the nature - I won't even try to quantify it. Thank you. You have my heart, always.”
Nair also posted a video slide show recounting many memories created in Vancouver, including a trip to a local board game shop, the Bloedel Conservatory and various other views from around the city.
“It takes a lot to render this man speechless, but you have done it. Thank you for the lessons, the love, the moments and the memories. You will forever have my heart. 🖤”
