Not long before Christmas hiatus, I caught the crew & some of the cast of the Canadian sci-fi cop from the future hit drama Continuum out filming scenes for season 3 (I believe episode 4 or 5 judging by the time of the month I caught up to them). I actually had come across them a few times over the past couple weeks, but this was the 1 & only chance to actually SEE the filming.
The scene that was being shot caught me off guard, and made me instantly excited to see where season 3 could go. So what did I see that had me so curious about where they could be going with this upcoming season?? Well, its the return of a character. Yes, a character returning changed how I was looking at season 3, and probably will for you too.
Imagine my confusion when I showed up to see Stephen Lobo as Matthew Kellogg shooting scenes with a young gorgeous redheaded Magda Apanowicz as Emily Hartwell.
So Alec obviously succeeded in going back in time to save Emily as she is quite fine. But, did Alec get "his" Emily back?? I ask this, because the scene she did with Kellogg suggested very much she knows very little of her past. She looked at Kellogg, a man she SHOULD have known from her past life as if he was a stranger. They then talked for a bit, and in the end, Kellogg leaves while Emily curls up into a ball on the rainy streets of Vancouver & breaks down crying.
When filming was done. I asked Stephen if he minded signing for me, he said sure. Since it was raining pretty good out, I asked if he could take inside the building they were using as the holding area for the actors in between scenes, he did & gave them to me shortly after. I then wished him a happy holidays as I had learned it was his last day of filming for 2013 (the show still had a few more days though)
So when Alec went back in time, did he delete Emily & him ever knowing each other as well? or do you think they meet under different circumstances & she just doesnt know Kellogg?
In other news, I finally met Victor Webster a few weeks ago. After trying for him 3 or 4 times over the 1st couple seasons, I actually met him AFTER I had decided there was little chance of seeing anyone at the set I was at (in the snow) and had walked away & as I was coming back around the back end of the block they were on, who should I run into walking back to set from his break? Victor. Great guy. Took the time to sign in the snow for me. Funnier yet, after not running into him for 2 seasons, I saw him twice in a month as he left with Rachel Nichols one day at a set in the final week while I was getting Rachel to sign some, he saw me said hello agian & got into the van.
Continuum returns for its 3rd season March 16th on Showcase.
