Dundurn Castle is the set for Maplehurst in The Sequel, and the Charlottetown tea room which Anne, Diana and Miss Josephine Barry visit in Anne1.
The scenes were shot in the interior in Dundurn Castle in Hamilton, Ontario, and the curators there were nice enough to allow us to completely empty out the rooms and dress them up with all of our own furniture. So we had a field day packing these extensive rooms with furniture and bric a brac. Wendy had fantastic comic timing.
You look at the interiors, there’s tile floors and Oriental carpets and elaborate wallpapers, and they all form this mass of heavy luxury. I love the interior of these buildings.
did you bring a lot of furniture in, or was it there?
no, pretty much the whole interior was dressed So all the furniture that you’re seeing on screen are things that we would have brought in to the interior.
It’s kind of a fantastical world, these two people living in all this old building full of old junky antiquities, Emmeline being imprisoned there with them. - Director’s Commentary, Anne: The Sequel
