Recently, I caught up with the cast & crew of Continuum filming scenes near their "Vancouver Police Headquarters" at the Plaza Of Nations This time however, it was not the VPD side of the cast filming, but Luvia Petersen & Omari Newton doing a scene as Garza & Lucas.
As you know if you have kept up with this current season of Continuum, Garza helped Lucas escape the Mental hospital with 1 of the more entertaining & creative escapes I have ever seen any show implement. One of the last things he says to her before they take off is how much he misses sushi. As we see in this scene, Lucas finally gets some sushi. Which was funny in itself, as Omari would spit out the sushi after every take. Guessing either Omari doesnt love it as much as his character, or the more likely, you dont want to eat 50 takes of sushi in 1 day.
In this scene Garza and Lucas are in a park/trail talking when Garza then takes out a needle & jabs it into Lucas. What is it? No clue. Lucas didnt seem too concerned by it, but considering he might be a tad nuts, this shouldnt come as a shock. Also, lets be honest. If Garza tells you she going to stick a needle into your neck, theres not much you are going to be able to do to stop Garza from sticking a needle into your neck... so might as well go with it I suppose.
While Luvia & Omari were filming, my buddy & I ran into Rachel Nichols who was leaving the trailers to o to their 2nd location that was shooting that day. I also saw Victor Webster, but as you can see by my photo, I didnt get a photo of his face as he was distracted by a couple dogs.
Eventually Omari & Luvia wrapped their scenes. The production moved inside the VPD HQ. I got autographs from Omari, who asked me if I was a fan of the show, and Luvia who I also told that I liked her performance on another local show Psych, that she had a guest spot on that I had seen just recently before the filming of this day.
Continuum season 3 is on right now Sundays on Showcase in Canada, and Fridays on Syfy in the U.S.
Recently, I caught up with the cast & crew of Continuum filming an episode at the Patricia Hotel mere blocks from my place.
In this scene Kiera Cameron ( Rachel Nichols ) is riding along with Inspector Dillon ( Brian Markinson )of all people. They get out of the cruiser, Dillon goes 1 way, while Kiera stands around, sees a black man carrying some groceries & then pursues him. She draws her gun & shoots & the man goes flying to the ground. As she is preparing to cuff the suspect, Dillon rounds the corner to see the end of it.
There were other scenes shot in the area over the couple days they were there including 1 I missed the next day that had Garza ( Luvia Petersen ) in a fight scene around the other side of the hotel. As well, some scenes shot inside the Patricia Hotel.
Below are the pics from this shoot.
Continuum returns for season 3 Tomorrow March 16, 2014 on Showcase in Canada. It returns April 4, 2014 in the U.S. on Syfy.
Continuum Films a scene for the Premiere of Season 2 for Showcase - Rachel Nichols resumes her ass kicking ways
Back in late January I caught the crew & cast of the Canadian hit Sci-Fi show "Continuum" shooting a scene for their 2nd season premiere.
Last season I saw them around a couple times, but not really knowing the show yet, didnt spend much time on keeping up with their production...then I saw the show, liked it & was waiting for it to come back.
This particular night, the shows gorgeous cop from the future stuck in present time Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) was kicking asses (or faces) and taking names at a parking structure inside the CBC Building in downtown Vancouver.
One of my favorite "so, you wanna be a star eh?" moments was seeing the poor extra who had to send several minutes in barely above freezing temperatures on the ground underneath the aggressive downpour of the raintowers the show used to make Vancouver look extra wet. Its people like this who are getting a moderate day rate that you have to appreciate. This poor actor had to lay on cold, damp cement during multiple takes while it literally poured on them on a day where the temperature hovered barely above freezing.
In these scenes, all we saw was Keira kicking in the face of a person on the ground that I was unable to indentify from watching.
Here are some photos of Rachel Nichols in her spandex futuristic cop suit shooting a scene, and preparing in between takes with directors & trainers.
