Supernatural shoots scenes for episode 3 with Misha Collins and guest stars with director Jensen Ackles calling the shots.
Supernatural started shooting season 11 in July with the 3rd episode of the season first.
On the 7th, I caught them out twice. First at a scene with Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki & Ruth Connell earlier in the day.
Later, they did interiors scenes in a more upscale bar than you usually find Supernatural filming in at the Bar next to the Granville Skytrain station.
The scene seemed to involve to unknown cast (maybe others as well? If anyone can ID the two actors, please let me know so I can credit them properly.) in a scene inside. Director Jensen Ackles was there, but unlike the scene earlier in the day I saw him at, he was dressed more casual than I would expect if he were in the scene. I feel he was there JUST in a directorial capacity. No other notable cast were at that shoot.
Although the crowd of fans got an unexpected surprise when former recurring star Ty Olsson (Benny) rolled by in a van & stopped to chat with the fans while waiting for the light to change. This actually was the 2nd guest star sighting at set that day, as earlier in the day Mitch Pileggi was at the set with his daughters to help them meet the boys.
Another unexpected arrival at set was when Danneel Ackles showed up with Jensens daughter J.J. shortly before the lunch break. Eventually the pair left with the boys driver and went to a restaurant to await Jensen for his lunch break.
When they went on lunch break, Jensen came out with the guest stars, chatted for a moment and then walked to his lunch. I caught up to him briefly around the corner, out of the way of the majority of the fans waiting there & asked him to sign. Of course, being able to get up to him, he willingly obliged & said "I'll just do 1 though, as my family is waiting for me" and I nodded in understanding & let him go on his way afterwards. This marked the 1st ever time I have got Jensen Ackles to sign while at set.
After the scene in the bar, the crew moved across the street to an alley.
Director Ackles made his way across the street after he was driven across the 2 lane street, instead of just walking 50 ft to the light & crossing across. I am sure that was more the idea of the driver than his own, but still I actually couldn't believe they did it.
Once over there, they put the final touches on the alley for a scene that only had1 cast member at it.
Misha Collins arrived to shoot a scene, and there was very little that could be taken from the scene. He seems to walk out of a space and into the alley. Perhaps more happened later? I don't know. I eventually packed up my day after Misha came over and greeted fans & signed for me.
