PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS Cast Ride Green Hippocampi at Ambleside Pier in West Vancouver
For all those asking, Nathan Fillion has not been spotted on set yet. I’ll be looking for Fillion on a Vancouver beach (hopefully not Ambleside beach yesterday) since he’s playing the Greek god Hermes, who meets Percy Jackson at a beach and gives him what he needs to head into the Sea of Monsters to find the mythical golden fleece to save Camp Half-Blood from attack, the second in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians franchise.
Logan Lerman is young Percy Jackson who embarks on a series of adventures based on Greek mythology. I saw Lerman yesterday at the end of the Ambleside Pier in West Vancouver riding a hippocampi, along with Douglas Smith as Tyson and Alexandra Daddario as Annabeth Chase. The hippocampi was green screen so that CGI could be added later and had a removeable head.
The only way up from this floating dock with the hippocampi was to climb the ladder so cast and crew were ferried by boat to a gang plank closer to shore between scenes.
This Percy Jackson shoot went from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and now I’m wondering if they might have snuck in Nathan Fillion later on, since Ambleside Pier was temporarily dressed as Chesapeake Beach.
But it seems unlikely since his TV series Castle just wrapped filming in Los Angeles last night. I think it’s too soon for Nathan Fillion to show up in Vancouver.
UPDATE: Tipped that Nathan Fillion expected to arrive in Vancouver late next week.
