A few days after catching them twice in a few days for ep 506, I caught them again only a few days later for 507.
On set this particular day was Anna Torv (Olivia Dunham), John Noble (Dr. Walter Bishop), Jasika Nicole (Astrid Farnsworth) & the rarely seen Blair Brown (Nina Sharp). This was the 1st time I had seen Blair Brown in over a year anywhere, and only the 2nd time EVER (the other being in 2009) that I had seen her on a Fringe set.
The scenes seem to consist of the now silver haired Nina of 2036 rolling down a dock in her scooter, the landscape is covered in Observer posters hanging from lamp posts as Astrid, Walter & Olivia notice. Olivia goes over to her & chats with her, while the other 2 stay back. A little later they did other scenes where Nina was going onto a walkway in her scooter.
After the set of scenes that the 4 of them wrapped, I was happy to be able to get autographs from three of the 4, especially Blair, who like I said, I rarely see. The only denial was from Jasika Nicole, who in the last year has gone from amazingly pleasant to cocky & borderline rude. In the span of a minute, she denied 3 different people, 2 of which were people she was meeting for the 1st time. In the last year, this has been her usual response when asked for autographs "not today", the 1 and only time I DID see her sign this year was a day where a bunch of out of town fans were at the set during a Fringe Fan event that was going on here. Every other time, in the last year, she has gone out of her way to ignore, or deny, requests. She is going to be in for a shock when the show finally ends, and her ability to land a new job doesnt happen immediately. Guess she thinks shes made it now & doesnt have to sign, which is odd, as her more experienced cast mates are all great with interacting with fans.
There hasnt been a lot of Blair this season so far, as the story has focused mostly on the teams search for Walters plan to defeat the Observers. Just like Philip Broyles, who we only recently saw finally meet up with the team, Nina has been mostly relegated to guest star status this year.
Here are the photos from this days shoot, back in September.
