Almost Human filmed a couple scenes at a downtown eastside diner called "The Ovaltine" on Hastings Street for an upcoming episode a few weeks ago.
In the scene I saw shot, John Kennex (Karl Urban) & Dorian (Michael Ealy) leaving the restaurant & get into their cruiser.
The on screen chemistry these two have shown so far has been phenomenal. So it should be no shock I found they really seemed to flow well during the takes too. Karl even mockingly commanding Michael to " get in the "expletive* car", even though they clearly werent seeming to be recording audio for these takes as the filming was done thru the restaurant inside point of view.
The Robot with human emotions DRN aka "Dorian" played by Ealy has been the star of the show so far. Kennex, played by Urban has been no slouch either. Whoever did the casting on this show really hit a home run with these 2 leading the show.
Almost Human is airing on Monday nights in the U.S. on FOX. In Canada On Global TV. They will return for the 2nd half of their short 13 episode 1st season on January 6th.
I found Almost Human filming some scenes (it was their 3rd location of the day) in historic Chinatown several weeks ago for tonights 6th episode of their 1st season.
In this scene, the LAPD were on the scene of some event, and Minka Kelly (Valerie Stahl) was there investigating. There didnt be a lot to the scene. She comes by, looks at the scene for a moment, then goes over to a car, gets in & talks to someone through a comm device & thats where the scene seems to end.
This was the 1st time I had seen Minka on set since they filmed the pilot episode back in March. It was also the first time I met Minka. I asked her to sign for me at the end of her shoot, and she did so. She, and the rest of the Almost Human team have some big shoes to fill as far as fan friendliness goes from Vancouver TV shows, especially from their creators pre-decessor "Fringe" who set the bar pretty high. PR is such a big part of television, hopefully this cast is up to the challenge eventually.
