Supernatural filming the season 7 FINALE - Jim Beaver & Larissa Gomes on Set. Misha Collins, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki at different set.
Back in mid-April, The CW hit Supernatural was filming scenes for their season 7 finale.
Twice I stumbled across their sets.
First was on the evening/night of April 11th in historic Gastown. Earlier in the day scenes were shot inside an office above Boneta Restaraunt. Unfortunately, I never got to see any of that.
Later that evening, they shot up the street from there, the scene was of a woman, who at that time I didnt know to be anyone special... of course NOW, I know her to be the maid that Bobby has possessed. She was walking along with a newspaper folded under her arm with a picture of Dick Roman on it.
Another scene later, was shot with her & Bobby both looking in the window of an electronics store where the TV 's all were advertising the message on a "Breaking News" bulletin that Dick Roman had bought Sucrocorp.
Later, a scene was done in al elley way, unfortunately I have no idea what went on in there.... I saw Jim Beaver & Larissa Gomes (Louise the maid that Bobby possessed) go down into the alley & at the time I just assumed it was going to be them fighting each other, or something along those lines, since the film notice said a fight scene would happen down there... of course, now knowing that Bobby/Louise are 1 in the same, I wonder who the fight was with now.
A few days later, I found the set in South Burnaby in a business park, behind a lot of fences.
Unfortunately, I never really saw any of the filming as the set was down in a little nook covered by walls & crew. I did however catch Jensen Ackles & Misha Collins hanging out & chatting with each other for 20-30 mins. At times, there was long lulls as 1 or both were engrossed in their phones, at other times, they seemed to be having quite animated conversations that I cant be sure of the nature... but I have taken my best shot at translating in some of the photos below.
I did see Jared Padalecki there, but only breifly, and never got much of a chance to get any pics of him facing me.
Here are the photos from the scene & Jensen & Misha chatting. I hope you enjoy.
Suernatural season 7 finale is on FRIDAY May 18th on The CW @ 9PM ET/PT
The last week of filming for season 6 of Supernatural came at the end of March/early April. The last known on location shoot was in downtown Vancouver & had all the SPN regulars accounted for during the day.
On March 31st, till shortly after midnight on April 1st, the Winchesters were busy taking care of business, with help from Bobby & Castiel in the alleys of Vancouver. Although multiple scenes were shot during the day, only really were the night shots, which only had Jared in them, viewable to the public. The rest of the scenes were done in sections that were blocked from regular public viewing.
All that is known about these final scenes, is that Sam strolls up to a hotel entrance with a girl (unknown name) & goes inside. Nothing more that I can say about the scene at this time.
In any case, some pics from the set of the Season 6 finale of Supernatural. Lotsof Jim Beaver & Jared Padalecki, a few of Misha Collins & 1 partial shot of Jensen Ackles.
The filming for Season 6 of The CW hit show Supernatural is now underway in Vancouver, Canada.
While the Winchester Boys have yet to be seen by any of the regulars in town yet, Their sidekick, Bobby Singer ( Jim Beaver ) has arrived for the start of filming.
The day before filming started, I met Jim at the airport upon his arrival back to our city. Little did I know at the time, Mr. Beaver had a guest in tow.
Sherriff Jody Mills ( Kim Rhodes ) came in with Jim to film an episode.
While little is known about the specific episode they are filming besides it centers on Bobbys character & Sherriff Mills will be in it, what is for certain is that SPN fans are already impatiently waiting to see how last seasons cliffhanger will play out this season.
Along with Beaver & Rhodes, the driver who picked them up also had a sign for Steven Williams who plays Rufus. I never saw him show up with them, but he clearly has some type of role in the episode that is being directed by Jensen Ackles.

Sometime over a year ago I first met Jensen Ackles & Jared Padalecki when they were on set a mere block from my house, their trailers even closer, just maybe 200 feet from my front door.
In that first encounter I got both of them. One on the set, one as they were leaving the trailers to go home at the end of the day. I left there with a good impression of them.
At that point, I had never watched more than a few minutes of the show. Not because I didnt like it, but because I simply dont watch TV that much & it wasnt on my list of things to keep caught up on.
Cue this season. With being a little more active in television & movie hounding this year, the cast of Supernatural was more on my radar. As well, a friend had lent me season 1 and 2 on DVD & I finally started watching it...and before you knew it, I was done both seasons.
During this season I had the chance to meet Jensen probably 6-8 times, and Jared 3 or 4 times. With the exception of 1 night where Jared seemed put off by us being there (I later found out some of this had to do with an altercation between his driver & other hounds on his way out of town), the boys more affectionately known as the Winchester Boys to the shows fans, were exceptionally pleasant. To add to the enjoyment of meeting the shows cast was the pleasant experiences with Jim Beaver & Misha Collins.
Next week, I am (assuming she remembers to bring them) going to finally get to start s3 & 4. I am pretty excited about it...especially after the great encounter I have had with them so far.
I often let my interactions with celebs decide what I will & wont watch. For instance, despite great interactions with 2 or 3 of the Smallville cast, the fact that 3 of its bigger stars are pricks sours the experience enough for me to not give the show a chance. The cast of Supernatural MADE me a fan.
The Winchester boys laid back approach to being celebs has made them a pleasure to hound. From Jensen joking with us about how intimidating Rampage Jackson seemed to him after they shared a flight together, to Jared (jokingly) saying "Fuck Smallville" when explaining how he is done filming before Smallville is & gets to go on vacation 1st. These guys are just regular laid back people. Its great to see there are still stars that are like this.
Below is a variety of pics from them since that 1st encounter with them
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
