SHOOT: ARROW’s Stephen Amell & Paul Blackthorne on Vancouver Art Gallery Roof – Updated

Updated: Stephen Amell read his Arrow lines to help Paul Blackthorne’s performance as Quentin Lance asking for tbe Arrow’s help to catch a serial killer, the Dollmaker. It looked spectacular from afar. Arrow spent Wednesday inside the gallery doing pretrial courtroom scenes with Moira Queen (Susannah Thompson) and outside shooting  scenes of Oliver Queen (Amell) [...]

SHOOT: ARROW’s Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) Grabs a Hotdog at the Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza

Quentin Lance may have been demoted in season two of the Arrow but he’s looking mighty fit in uniform. Maybe because Paul Blackthorne, the actor who plays Lance, has been climbing the Grouse Grind for recreation. Yesterday Arrow filmed a scene of Lance grabbing a hotdog on the north plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery [...]

TCA NEWS: THE TOMORROW PEOPLE is The CW’s Bid for Sci-fi Audience This Fall

The CW summer TCA panel. July 30, 2013. Showrunners Greg Berlanti (Arrow) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) told the TCA they have been talking about reimagining The Tomorrow People since they watched reruns of the 1970s British cult show in college in the 1980s. Greg Berlanti helped star Robbie Amell (cousin of  Arrow’s Stephen [...]

YOUR SHOOT: SUPERNATURAL’s Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles at UBC to Film S9 Premiere

Photo by @RavenKuni. A fan found herself in the right place at the right time yesterday when Supernatural crew emerged from inside the University of British Columbia’s Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Arena at lunchtime to set up for a hospital grounds exterior on the path between the arena and the Life Sciences Centre.

SHOOT: Jensen Ackles & Jared Padalecki Film SUPERNATURAL S9 in New Westminster

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 [...]

SHOOT: ARROW’s Stephen Amell & David Ramsey Outside Orpheum Theatre

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 [...]

SHOOT: The Hood is Back on ARROW S2. Stephen Amell Below the Hastings Overpass

The Hood is back for Arrow season two. Stephen Amell showed us why he’s the star of Arrow, even with his shirt on last Friday night. Not every actor is capable of the kind of  integrated stuntwork that Arrow does routinely. Amell is almost always part of a stunt so that it looks seamless on [...]

SET: Downtown Eastside as ARROW’s Post-Earthquake The Glades

Team Arrow thwarted part of Malcolm Merlyn (The Dark Archer)’s plan to level The Glades with an earthquake device in the season one finale last May.  But not all of it. A good section was flattened causing the death of hundreds. The Glades is Starling City’s Downtown Eastside-equivalent: impoverished and riddled with hookers, pimps and drug dealers but also a [...]

STUNT: ARROW S2 The Hood Stunt with Simon Burnett

The Arrow Stunt Department spent most of last Friday rehearsing  in the sunshine for an integrated stunt to be filmed later that night of star Stephen Amell and Hood stunt double Simon Burnett shooting a rope ascender arrow up in the air and then rising on the zipline several stories off the ground. I didn’t [...]
