Over the past 2 seasons of Fringe I have taken a lot of sets of photos...but for 1 reason or another, sometimes, they dont immediately make it to my blogs.
So, over the past couple seasons I have a few pics, some I couldnt post because of computer problems which resulted in them getting buried under newer sets from other projects, some I was asked not to post immediately, such as the Josh Jackson pics with Diane Kruger. Others, simply I didnt think there was enough pics to make a good blog at the time. Even a couple more, I didnt realize had Seth Gabel in the pic at the time, as it was well before Lincoln Lee became a more central character. Theres also the pic I took of AN Observer, which turned out to not be THE Observer (Michael Cerveris). At the time the idea that there was more than 1 Observer had not been shown yet, so I wasnt aware there were multiple other Observers...till 2 mins later when 2 other Oberservers walked by me that day. Theres even a couple photos with that I just cropped me or my friends out of, like the Jasika Nicole, Anna Torv & John Noble posed pics.
So enjoy Fringe fans. Season 4 starts filming in Vancouver on July 14th.... hopefully this occupies you till then.
The cast & crew for Fringe were just a few blocks from my house last night filming.
While I didnt really spend a lot of time around the set because of other tasks I was pursuing thru the day, I did make it there im time in the evening to see the big scene they had planned...an explosion.
I dont know which cast may have been in the scene since they had everyone standing almost a block away incase anything in the scene were to go wrong.
As it turned out...it went off just fine.
I know Anna Torv and Kirk Acevedo were around at times. But whether they were in any way taking part int his scene, I am unsure.
Anyways.... a video (might be the ONLY video of it since very few there had good quality cameras, let alone video recording devices.) of the scene...with oohs & aaahs from the crowd of 40-50 or so that were being held about a block back with me.
Last year I was pretty pumped when I heard the popular FOX TV sci-fi show Fringe was moving its production for season 2 out here to Vancouver. I had just gotten into the show weeks earlier & was thrilled about the news that 1 of my new favorite shows was going to be coming here.
Of course I went out & hounded the cast a few times, getting all the regular cast (Torv, Jackson, Noble, Lance Reddick, Blair Brown & Jasika Nicole) over the span of the season. I was pretty excited to get all of them, as well as special guest star Leonard Nimoy on multiple occasions. One person I missed however, was Kirk Acevedo. That brings me to season 3.
Yesterday I caught the Fringe crew & cast out at 2 different locations a few blocks apart.
First was a scene in a park where Agent Olivia Dunham was sporting her reddish brown alternate world locks for a scene. I was asked by the crew not to shoot the scene, so I didnt. Instead opting to take a few shots of Anna while she was walking back from a take.
A couple hours later, it was over to the vancouver Art Gallery for their 2nd shoot of the day. This one was in the real world, as "Olivternate" who is sporting Torvs natural blonde hair, shot scenes with Peter & Walter (Jackson & Noble).
I am not going to say what was shot in the scenes specifically. I will be doing another blog later this week with another set of photos that will give more details. I held back on posting some pics, as a courtesy to another photog who was submitting specific pics from the scene to his agency. So I told him I would hold off posting those for 24-48 hrs, so you'll just have to wait for the rest of the set.
For now however, here is the Fringe cast on set yesterday...with a special surprise appearance by Kirk Acevedo, who wasnt shooting. He just happened to be there at the time. I managed to get him to sign 2 items as well...inching me 1 step closer to completing a cast signed item. Now I just need Mark Valley.
All toll, I got 12 autographs from the cast yesterday....which topped off a pretty good day that I had prior to that with other non-Fringe related celebs.
ADDED JULY 15TH- I have had a few questions about the baby seen here, as it is also seen in other photos where Joshua is holding the child as well. I can assure you all, the baby IS NOT in the scenes. It is merely a newborn of a cast/crew member that the cast & crew were fascinated with.
