Last month I had a couple short run ins with the Supernatural set that I didnt feel entailed enough for a single blog...so I save dthem up & decided to post them all at once.
1st up.. I give you, a few shots of THE IMPALA!
Baby was back on set in July, and after a VERY aggressive campaign by 1 crew member to prevent people from photographing it (before being told...its ok, dont worry about it, by another crew member) I later found it parked on a side street, abandoned. While there was crew in the general area, fact is, none of them were within the immediate area of the car, and no one would have noticed if I had just opened the door & sat inside. Of course, I managed to resist the urge to do so, but took several close up phots of the inside. Seems on this particular day, 1 of the crew was keeping their cleaning supplies in the passenger side floor area.
After taking those photos, I went around back of the building they were at, and just missed Jared leaving, but managed to catch a couple quick side frames of Jensen Ackles leaving.
Two weeks to the day later, I caught the boys on set at the Greyhound station in Vancouver. Again, not a lot to see, only snapped a couple frames of Jared & Jensen arriving on set.
A few days later, after an uninspiring set in downtown that I deemed not worth checking out as it was all interiors I had my 1st ever random run in with 1 of the boys out at dinner.
I was on the bus headed to another TV show set, when I passed by a parking lot & saw (the bodyguard) Clifs truck. I cut my trip short & decided to get out & see if maybe it was because they were filming near there (they were supposed to be at the same spot...but film crews will often film at more than 1 spot in an area). I saw no immediate sign & went up a block, nothing, went back down, looked around the truck, noticed Clif wasnt in it, then went over to the next street to check out, and as I was doing that, a valet passed by me (the lot is used to park a cars for a local eatery there often). Once I got out to the other street, I saw nothing immediately, then just as I was about to head up the street I saw the unmistakable frame of Clif leaving a high end steak house, shortly behind him was Jared. The vehicle pulled up moments later as the valet I saw passing me was actually going to get the vehicle & shortly after that, they were on their way, apparently to the airport, as the next day Jared was spottied in NYC for New Jersey Con weekend.
I had several people ask me if Jensen was at dinner with him. Although I cant know 100% obviously, I am pretty confident the answer is no. He wasnt seen there, and unless he sat around, on a night he was working, finishing his meal after they left, he definitely wasnt with them when they left.
Anyways, here is the pics from the last few encounters....and now I'm up to date on my SPN pics.
Waaaay back in early/mid July, there was this event that a few people might have heard about. Comic-Con? Yeah I know, these little out of the blue events are forgotten about so easily.
Anyways, this particular event happened to have several guests from the Vancouver filming industry at it. Including the cast of Supernatural.
Sure enough, I went out super early on a Saturday morning hoping to catch 1 or more stars from the show leaving.
As the early morning went on I found myself having to take far too many trips to the washroom. With no back up there to cover off anyone leaving while I was incapacitated, I had that sinking pit in the stomach feeling I might miss them.
As the suggested cut off time for passangers came & went, I was convinced "I must of missed them". I was on the phone to a buddy going over possible scenarios when I hastily said to him "gotta go, Jared". Sure enough out of the towncar that they are supplied with for this event, Jared Padalecki strolled out. It had been quite awhile since I had gotten Jared to sign, since last season he was no longer flying out of Vancouver as the birth of his 1st son, Thomas got closer.
Jared was in good spirits for someone at the airport before some Starbucks locations were even open. he happily signed 3 items for me, we chatted about the off season, filming & of course his favorite topic, Thomas. I asked him if Gen & Thomas were up here yet, which he replied "no, they come in next week" & I told him to tell her congrats from us (even though I know its not like hes going to phone her up & say "hey the autograph hounds from Vancouver said to pass along congrats to you"...its still the thing you say). He then said "will do brother" and told me eactly how long its been since he had seen his newborn son last & that he doesnt want to miss anymore big moments. I asked where jensen was, he said "he has directing stuff to do" which was because Mr. Ackles was currently directing the episode they were filming at that time. He then was on his way.
The next potential flight I had Jensen possibly going on was about 2 hrs later, so I grabbed a snack & hung out for awhile. Eventually, another autograph hound showed up. His hope was to get Jared as well, and when I told him he was gone already he was of course, a bit disappointed. As time went on, just like Jared, it was getting into "cutting it close" time & I was actually thinking "hes not leaving on this flight". Sure enough, like Jared, showed up later than expected, took both of us off guard. Since Jensen is 1 of those "I dont stand in lines" types, he was thru & on his way to the check in area pretty quick, meaning my buddy & I actually had to hurry down to the last spot to get people before they are off limits to get him. As he got there, he hastily said "I only have time for 1 each" and then signed & hastily went thru.
Upon returning, we somehow, with 8 or 10 people at the airport, never saw Jensen Ackles return. If it werent for him being spotted on set the next day I would have assumed he didnt return that night. Jared however, did come thru & was terrific. He stopped, signed for the large crowd till no one had stuff left. He again, chatted at length about his son when the subject was brought up.
As I left, I had a short chat with him. With so many of the celebs I have met, I try to post links to the charities of their choices & make donations based on their sales. So I asked Jared, what charity he is involved with, and he told me. Of course, my ADHD brain seemingly forgot this in just a few months, since it was info he tweeted about often during Gens pregnancy with Thomas. The charity he stated "St. Judes Childrens Research Hopsital" (OFFICIAL WEBSITE of the hospital http://www.stjude.org/ ) (DONATION SITE created by some Supernatural fans to celebrate Thomas birth http://bit.ly/QZbfUR ) These links will also be added to my links section under causes, as well as my page for my Jared Padalecki ( Supernatural) autographs http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/supernatural-autographs.html where I will post an addition to Jareds autographs that a percentage will be donated to the cause.
