Better late than never, right?
Sorry Glee fans, sometimes things dont get posted immedately & eventually get buried under new, fresh stuff.
Such is the case with the pics of Cory Monteith I took in May, 2011 while he was in Vancouver with his band Bonnie Dune.
Happy to say Cory was a great guy. He stopped & took photos & signed for all the fans there. Even with some of us, clearly not being Glee fans, he didnt discriminate & signed willingly & signed lots. Good Canadian Kid. Hope big things for him.
So, here they are.... only 10 months later....
This past summer, I was in Toronto at the Toronto International Film Festival. The list of celebs I planned to find was long, and it included a girl that was getting big hype for her role in a movie that was going to be released in 2012, The Hunger Games. That girl - Jennifer Lawrence. However, Ms. Lawrence cancelled her appearance...and thus my 1st effort to meet any of the cast from the movie was thwarted.
Fast forward about 2 1/2 months & I am at the airport 1 night for someone, and am told by a buddy "hey, will you help me with someone when they come in, I assure you have nothing for him". Ok, seems reasonable enough.
Eventually, a very fit blonde actor strolled thru, it was another cast member from The Hunger Games, Alexander Ludwig.
Ludwig plays Cato in the series. He is a vampire who sparkles in the sunligh.... wait, I am getting my phenomenons mixed up. Cato is actually a physically strong, fearsome and possibly crazy competitor who Katniss eventually kills.
These shots were from back in November, 2011 before the hype machine had really started to peak. He was friendly, accomodating & happy to be noticed it seemed. Alex was returning from his schooling in USC for a break to see his family & friends before returning to finish his studies in theatre.
A few weeks ago I ran across the set for Supernatural in New Westminster. They were using a popular restaurant in town, Burger Heaven to do a scene involving a returning character, Garth (played by 1 of the top 5 skinny actors in the world - DJ Qualls).
Although there was not a lot I saw of the scene, I snagged a few frames of Mr. Q hanging around waiting to film & a couple of him just as he started doing his scene, where he enters the restaurant.
After I saw a couple takes of this scene being done, I left, and shortly after came across the trailers for "Garth" & "Randy Baxter" (played by former "Good Rockin' Tonight" host Terry David Mulligan).
The episode he was filming, 718, is titled "Party On, Garth" & from synopsis I have read elsewhere will feature Sam & Dean helping Garth defeat a Japanese creature called a Shojo. Only other detail I know of it comes from Terry David Mulligans tweet where he says he says DJ Qualls gets to taser him. https://twitter.com/#!/TDMulligan/statuses/171766277227036672
The return of Garth is in this weeks episode on Friday, 9 PM local time on The CW.
EDIT - you can see a few other photos from this episode (including a different set on a different day) at this blog post from this twitter user @susangittins http://yvrshoots.com/2012/03/dj-qualls-returns-to-supernatural-to-party-on-garth.html
This post contains SPOILERS for episode 4-15 "A Short Story About Love" DO NOT continue if you dont want to see any spoilers for this episode....
You have seen the pics of "the kiss"... but they obviously had to do several takes to work up to that.... here is 1 of them.
this was not the full scene, as the crew eventually asked us to stop taping it when they got closer to the full scene. This was merely 1 of the rehearsal takes as they worked on their timing to do do the scene in 1 effortless motion.
In this take Olivia walks across a street & Peter comes running at her from out of the shadows.... he then proceeds to pick her up & spin her around.... in later takes, they would also add in the kiss scene to this rehearsal before eventually doing the whole scene.
This scene was filmed on the coldest day of the year, with temperatures reaching -17C... and you thought being an actor was all fun & games.
SPOILERS FOR UPCOMING FRINGE EPISODE IN THIS BLOG!!! DO NOT PROCEED IF YOU DONT WANT TO READ OR SEE PHOTOS OF SPOILERS!!!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED....
I promised all of you more photos from the scenes back in December that I shot on the coldest day of the year of Peter Bishop (Josh Jackson) & Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) doing a kissing scene for episode 15 "A Shortr Story About Love".
Of course, for those of you up to date on the show this scene might seem more of a dream sequence now than a real time sequence that all of you hoped for when I posted the first batch of photos back then with the way the recent episode panned out.
Below is a few of the pics from that night... like I said, none were terribly "great" but you all get the idea.
I originally promised to hold off on posting these photos till the week of the episode, but was strongly considering posting them earlier after discussing the situation that unfolded around me holding them back with others. the point that was most often brought up and I agree with is... the people begging me not to post them because they "abhor spoilers" are hypocritical in saying that.... as they themselves SAW the spoiler...and then bragged about it on a public forum. Why should those people unable to be there on that night miss the chance to see what the fans saw that night before the episode airs?
That is in the past, what matters now is... figuring out what context these images are from... real life, or a fantasy?
Coming soon..... a video of 1 of their practice takes.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
