THIS POST CONTAINS MILD SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 220 "Seeing Red". If you do not want to read or view spoilers for this episode, do not continue.
Been awhile since I stumbled across an Arrow set.
In fact, before I had seen a late evening tweet from 1 of Vancouvers best sources of set info, YVRshoots on twitter, I had not come across a set for Arrow in about a month it seemed.
Despite it being a tad chilly, late & even raining a smidge, I opted to head to this set & was not disappointed from what I saw on 2 fronts.
First, I finally got autographs from former The Killing star & now Arrow star Bex Taylor-Klaus on some Arrow photos. I had not seen Bex since running into her while she filmed her 1st appearance on Arrow. It isn't till you see Bex on set, being hyper & energetic that you remember this girl is only 19 years old, barely in her 2nd year of TV acting, as her acting on both The Killing where she 1st gained attention & now on Arrow would suggest someone with more years in the industry. Wish I had a better camera, to have caught the photos of her playing around with the prop broken arrow, pretending to catch it infront her face like Malcolm Merlyn, or her using it as a baseball bat, perhaps envisioning herself playing for her hometown Atlanta Braves.
The other cool thing, was seeing scenes with Colton Haynes as Roy Harper doing what Roy does best, be angry. I dont know what preceded the scene I saw filmed, but Roy was being stopped by a couple cops as Sin came up the street towards where the confrontation was happening.
In the scene Roy is walking with a broken arrow (you know, like any regular person does) when the cops see him & tell him to drop the arrow. The cops foolishly move in towards Roy with the guns drawn, and a series of quick strikes by Roy to the pair of the cops sees them both fall to the ground after Roy attacks them with just his arrow & his hands. From behind the cruiser Sin watches on as Roy makes quick work of a pair of Starling City's finest before he runs off.
The stunt scenes actually had Colton Haynes do a bunch of the work himself, but his stunt double Curtis Bracconier did much of the physically demanding part of the scene. They interchanged so often theres a few shots below that I only sort of know which of them it is, so I haven't labeled all the photos.
After that scene, Bex wrapped for the night, then Colton did a scene where he comes running out of a parkade & runs down the street thru traffic.
I also have some video of Colton/Curtis filming the scene that I will post eventually. But for now, here are the photos from the night.
Arrow airs Wednesday nights on The CW in the U.S. & CTV in Canada.

In a rare event, I found the Arrow set & no Stephen Amell on set. Seriously, this is actually possible.
On this particular day, I found Colton Haynes (aka - Roy Harper ) doing scenes with someone I was very familiar with from her great job doing a previous role on another Vancouver show "The Killing", Bex Taylor-Klaus.
Till that day, it was a mystery who Bex was going to play. I had known for several days she was here, but didn't know what role, or frankly, till the day before, even what show the 19 year old rising star was here for. But after she was photographed by several people on set that day, The CW decided to confirm Bex was on the show, to play the character of SIN...which I'm happy with, as I said, I have already seen what she brings to the table acting wise. But some whiny fanboys on tumblr got their panties in a knot over this because apparently Sin is supposed be Asian. Well, I don't recall there being something that stated they had to cast the role for the show the way comic books portrayed them. Honestly, if their life is so ruined because of who got cast in a T.V. show for a character that most casual fans are unfamiliar with or barely know, then they really need to re-assess their lives.
Funny random moment of this day was when I went up to get Bex to sign some photos & she instantly recognized me from when she saw me around for "The Killing". When I asked her she instantly said "your Canadagraphs?" & I told her yes & that it was nice to finally meet (since the 1st two times I saw her I didn't even know her name yet). Colton took photos with a few fans & Bex even offered to be the photographer for these encounters.
The scenes I saw show were of Roy seemingly chasing after, or running along with Sin thru the streets of Starling City. Later on I saw Roy doing more scenes where it looked like he was delivering something somewhere...but couldn't see enough of it to know for sure.
On the lunch break, the other unit for the show came over to the food trucks for their meals & I saw David Ramsey, Caity Lotz & Emily Bett Rickards there briefly before they jetted away back to their other location.
There will be more Arrow photos from other sets throughout the season. For now, enjoy these & if you want to see other sets from this season & last year, check out the rest of my blog posts here
