Actor Adam Driver’s search for lost dog in Brussels ends well

19:38 03/10/2019

Adam Driver, currently one of the most popular actors in the US, is in Brussels shooting a movie, and he posted an appeal on social media about his director’s lost dog. He shot a video in Brussels Park, the last place the little dog was seen.

The star of such movies as BlacKkKlansman, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Logan Lucky explained in the video that he was shooting a movie with French film director Leos Carax in Brussels, when the director’s beloved pet ran away.

“Javelot is a third generation dog. Leos owned his grandfather and then his father and now Javelot,” said Driver (pictured). “He went missing yesterday. We were shooting a scene in a club, and when we went outside, he got spooked by the traffic and ran off.”

The dog had been missing for 24 hours, and the owner, cast and crew were very worried. They were all in Brussels Park searching for Javelot.

Then Driver filmed an appeal for anyone who might have seen the dog to call a phone number. “We’ll put you in the movie, we’ll give you chocolate, we’ll christen your child – we’ll do anything to say thank you.”

Whether it was the promise of a film role or a love for our four-footed friends is as yet unclear, but in any case, Javelot has been found.

All well that ends well, and isn’t it good to know that you are not the only one afraid of Brussels traffic?
