    Born and raised in Washington, Pennsylvania, Paige Spara currently lives in Vancouver, where she films the ABC medical series “The Good Doctor.” Her character, Lea Dilallo, is the head of a hospital’s Information Technology department and is married to Shaun Murphy – an autistic doctor played by Freddie Highmore. “She’s the kind of person who strives to do good in the world and be there for the people she loves,” said Spara, 33. “Lea would make an excellent travel partner, if you enjoy impulsive adventures and are down to do anything and everything in a day.

That experience made myself and my family even more determined to see as much of Australia as we could once the lockdown lifted. This time around, we’ve made sure to take advantage of long weekends and plan short road trips in and around Victoria or even the occasional day trip.” Zea splits her time between Melbourne and Los Angeles.

    Jabbing his pole like a one-pronged pitchfork into the slow red river of rock, the ashtray salesman pulled out a hot wad of lava. I scrambled back as he swung it by me and plopped it into a mold.
