Rob Thomas’s CW pilot iZombie staged a stunt tonight on Beatty Street during the Vancouver Canucks game. It took hours to set up but crew filmed two takes of this stunt woman falling head-first from a balcony to the sidewalk below just as fans exited the game and flooded the area.

Once with stunt mats below. And the second time without any.

iZombie is a procedural about a medical student-turned-zombie Olivia (Once Upon a Time’s Rose McIver)  who works in a Coroner’s Office where she eats the brains of corpses as a way to survive without killing anyone. But here’s the added twist: each brain she eats gives her their memories which could help solve open homicide cases.

Could this stunt fall with a camera be from the perspective of the victim — a memory that will help Olivia solve a homicide.

Olivia passes off her ability as “psychic” to work with a police detective (Malcolm Goodwin). Robert Buckley is Liz’s former fiancé and [role being recast], her best friend and roommate. David Anders is bad guy Blaine.

    Is that supposed to be David Anders’ double dropping the woman in that picture?

    Not in these photographs. More important to have trained stunt people on hand than a David Anders double. Although like you I hold Anders’s character Blaine responsible for this woman’s death.
