Supernatural start shooting season 11 - episode 3 with director Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and guest star Ruth Connell
Supernatural season 11 had a couple days of shooting in downtown Vancouver for its 1st episode (the 3rd episode of the season) to shoot this season.
With the shows star Jensen Ackles again directing an episode, the 3rd episode of the season was being shot prior to the 1st one to give the director & shows star enough time to do his job on it as he juggles to jobs. Donning a fairly un-Dean Winchester like Hawaiian shirt and beach hat, I assumed what I was looking at was "Director Jensen" and not him in "Dean Winchester" attire..... turns out, I was mistaken. When I saw his stunt double also wearing the same garb later, I realized.... Deans traded in the jackets & fed suits for some beach wear. When I tweeted a photo of it that day, a few fans replied with the "sand between our toes" line that Dean says last season to Sam. Perhaps Dean got to experience that.... guess we'll have to wait to see.
On this particular day, a few cast members were seen (some in unofficial capacities). Season 10 troublemaker Rowena, played by Ruth Connell was back, but with a little wardrobe change for the day..... as she was sporting blonde hair.
Crowleys mom appeared to be doing 2 scenes there, 1 with each of the Winchesters. Firstly with Dean (either Jensen or his stunt double, our angle never quite gave us a good look) where she seems to point her finger at him and he goes flying. A bit later, a scene with Sam as Jared Padalecki roughly drags Ruth as Rowena away by her arm.
A lot of the time on this shoot it was hard to tell when they might have been rolling and when they may have been in between takes. Other times however, they were clearly on a break. During 1 of their breaks, former Supernatural guest star Mitch Pileggi stopped by with his family and introduce his kids to Jensen & Jared. The trio chatted for awhile while they re-set the scene. Funny enough, I was unaware I had even seen him till well after the fact when I was going through my pics & saw him in some of them.
Eventually Jared wrapped and left. Shortly after Ruth left. Lastly Jensen left, as he not only wrapped that location but had to head to the next spot where the crew was already preparing the next scene.
After this shoot, the crew packed up & moved to another location a few blocks away for an interior shoot that had another random former guest star sighting, and a night shoot in an alley that I will have more on in another post.
