SHOOT: Max Thieriot & Kenny Johnson Film BATES MOTEL at Horseshoe Bay Marina
What do Dylan (Max Thieriot) and his uncle Caleb (Kenny Johnson of The Shield/Sons of Anarchy/Dexter) have to talk about? Reportedly Caleb has come to White Pine Bay to persuade his sister Norma (Vera Farmiga) to invest in a business venture. Isn’t Caleb the brother who sexually abused her as a teenager? And didn’t Norma’s pre-Winter Formal revelation to Norman (Freddie Highmore) about the incest help trigger Norman to go full-on Psycho in the season one finale? We may not have seen Norman kill Miss Watson but he was clearly in one of his psychotic fugues.
Bates Motel filmed the nephew-uncle chat on a dock at the Horseshoe Bay Marina last month, after some morning crowd scenes in Horseshoe Bay Park dressed as White Pine Bay. And then moved up a block to film at the Horseshoe Bay Motel.
