An explosion at a “Sebastian Blood for Mayor” candlelight vigil in Starling City Square brings Arrow on his motorcycle. That was the hit CW show’s big sequence filmed in Robson Square in downtown Vancouver last night with 200+ background performers. Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) walks west on the stairs above the rally. Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) is down below with the other beat cops acting as security. Fans spotted Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), Thea Queen (Willa Holland) and Diggle (David Ramsey) on or near set as well. And there could have been others. Arrow filmed different parts of this rally and the explosion aftermath until about 5:00 a.m. this morning. Everyone we’ve ever known in the Arrowverse could have [...]
EVENT: Greatest International Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen Hosted By Misha Collins in Burnaby’s Central Park
Supernatural’s Misha Collins brought his annual G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S. (Greatest International Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen) to Burnaby’s Central Park on Thursday: Sprung forth whole and immediately deranged from the twisted mind of Misha, GISHWHES now lives and breathes in the global community of GISHWHESHEANS. We abhor all things boring and status quo and embrace all things bold, unnerving, quirky and made of kale. So that’s why Misha Collins is wearing cat ears in this fan video. Definitely bold and quirky. G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S. Mottos: Motto 1: Death to normalcy!. Motto 2: If we’re not GISHWHES, who will be? Really. Do you know anyone who would actually do this? If so, let me know. I want them on my team. Motto 3: [...]
Supernatural looked a lot like a Godzilla shoot yesterday — with soldier backgrounders, army jeeps and the same bus we saw in downtown New Westminster dressed as San Francisco but without the mega- Godzilla damage to it. Supernatural spent the morning filming scenes at the Justice Institute of British Columbia in New Westminster turned into the Special Forces Naval Base in Coronado, California. And then moved next door to the Canada Games Pool parking lot for the crime scene with fake FBI agents Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) Winchester investigating what happened aboard that San Diego County bus and looking fine doing it. Jensen Ackles gave fans a wave after their first scene aboard the bus as he and [...]
Oliver and Diggle on Granville Street in downtown Vancouver. Since I’d never seen Diggle (David Ramsey) on set before he’s the one I photographed before and after their walk-and-talk. It was too difficult for me to capture Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle together except as shadow puppets (see below). Arrow crew closed the 800 block of Granville around 8 p.m. last night to set up for this scene, which didn’t start rolling until around 11 p.m. as the crowd gathered. Cast and crew spent the day shooting inside the historic theatre so this exterior must have been the last shoot of the day.
Fans wait for Arrow to roll outside the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Vancouver. Starling City police cars are parked on the street for the scene as crew sets up for tracking shot.
Computer hacker and beloved Queen of Moondoor Charlie Bradbury (Felicia Day) returns to Supernatural for the third time (second time this season) in the upcoming Pac-Man Fever. She brings a case to Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) to investigate. Not much is known about episode twenty yet, but crew did film scenes on Wednesday night of Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Charlie (Felicia Day) inside the Impala surrounded by food trucks at east Vancouver’s Hastings Community Centre. Fans at the night shoot congratulated the crew on Supernatural’s viral Harlem Shake video, now approaching 2 million views on YouTube in just a couple of days.

Whatever else is going on in Storybrooke in the nineteenth episode of season two, newly-acquainted father-and-son Baelfire and Henry, and the actors who play them, continue to bond. Michael Raymond-James and Jared Gilmore had an incredible amount of fun rehearsing and filming their play sword fight in Fisherman’s Park in Steveston yesterday morning and early afternoon in front of passersby, local fans and two fans visiting from France. Michael Raymond-James jumped on a picnic table at one point in their rambling play sword fight down the grassy hill of the park. And during one take, Raymond-James jokingly held his wooden sword to the throat of the boom operator once he’d moved out of frame.
It was so sad last Friday when the day came and went without Fringe. The show had wrapped five seasons (four of them filmed in Vancouver) the week before in an epic series finale. Then on Monday FOX shared something wonderful — this video of the Fringe cast saying one final thank you to the fans. ***************************************************************************************************************************
Once Upon a Time paid to have businesses close for the day on two blocks of Moncton Street in Steveston and hired 35 PAs (production assistants) to keep people back for Storybrooke flashbacks of Sheriff Graham (Jamie Dornan) and Regina (Lana Parrilla) in a high-speed chase in the Storybrooke Sheriff’s car. Crew alternated scenes of stunt doubles driving fast and cast driving slowly down Moncton Street. NOTE: Because these are flashbacks I’m not withholding the photos but normally my policy is to hold onto major spoilers until they become mild to medium ones.
“Fringe is a story about love strong enough to break the world, and strong enough to heal it.” That’s the quote inside the Thank You cards given by the Frinegnity team to Fringe cast, crew and others who made a difference to their show. And we should be thanking them. After all, when Fringe was in danger of not being renewed for this fifth and final season, it was Fringenuity who organized thousands of fans around the world to fight for it through Friday night Twitter and Get Glue campaigns. And it worked. On this final Fringe Friday, let’s pay tribute to them. They made an incalculable difference: Annie, @birdandbear; Aimee, @aimeeinchains; Kelly, @fringeship; Emma @dalliel; Cheri @cheribot, and Tas, @tribeoftyrones plus special ops Nikolai, @nikolai3d and Sarah, [...]
In the epic Fringe trailer for this Friday’s two-hour series finale, we catch a glimpse of Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble)’s cracked Window into Another World circa 1985 (cracked because Walter threw something at it after he saw Observer September interrupt Walternate’s discovery of a cure for his son Peter). Everything is coming full circle in Fringe’s fifth and final season. Walter must have hauled out the window from wherever he’d stored it in his ambered Harvard lab circa 2036 so that the team can have a look at Liberty Island in the parallel universe. I suspect this will be an early scene of the attempt to infiltrate Liberty Island [to rescue the boy Michael from the detention camp] in the second-to-last episode [...]
