Tuesday I went back to the set for the Freeform hit series Motherland Fort Salem, in downtown Vancouver at a location thats been used by many productions throughout the years, the Plaza Of Nations. The episode is directed by Nimisha Mukerji.
On this day, they were using the same stage they used in the early part of Mondays shoot in this blog post. But this time, they had more cast on set. Taylor Hickson as Raelle Collar, Ashley Nicole Williams as Abigail Bellweather, Jessica Sutton as Tally Craven, joined Lyne Renee as Sarah Alder this time on set. Along with them, was two newcomers.
Joining the cast you are all familiar with was 2 newcomers, Mellany Barros (thanks to twitter users for figuring it out, I had not come up with the name at first) as an unknown yet singer. As well, an actor some will recognize from The Boys as "Cindy" the super powered asylum escapee from this past season, Ess Hödlmoser, as another yet unknown character. It was funny, because I looked at Ess a few times thinking "I know her from something", but assumed it was another Vancouver production, and not 1 of the top shows out there.
The scene in its entirety sees the group, along with a few other people in the same uniforms come out to the stage. The leads standing on stage with Mellany. Eventually Mellanys character goes up to the podium & makes a loud, long (quite frankly uneasy to listen to) groan/moaning sound. Then she leaves and stands back, as Sarah walks up to the mic. Sarah calls what she said as a "song" and goes on to talk for a couple minutes, before a young Asian actress who I do not have an ID for yet walks up to the stage, and is booed by protesters that were off to the left of the stage (to my right). The girl was taken by a main in a suit up to the stage, where Tally takes her to the back of the stage, before returning to stand to the side of Abigail. Raelle in that time, moves to where Tally was originally standing, to the side of Sarah. Sarah then turns to talk with Raelle. A moment later, several protesters break thru the barricades, and "throw" (they didnt physically do it in the takes I was there for, just made the motions) things at the stage. The group all ducked for cover, eventually slowly rising back up, giving a variety of intense glares of anger towards the group.
I know a few of the fans will wonder where these new scenes match up with the days before. Its unclear. They clearly are not in immediate order, as when we saw Sarah in the first days set, she was busy being interviewed by a news crew without the rest of the cast on stage. So whether thats before, or after this, is unknown. As well, the protest groups were filmed on different sides each day. The right side of the stage protesters on Monday with Amalia & Demetria in the crowd, the left side crowd, which seemed to not include any cast, on Tuesday.
After that scene they went on their lunch break, and I called it a day, even though there probably was still a little exterior filming to do.
Since this is my first post about this show, I just want to re-iterate, if you plan to post photos from this set on social media platforms, you ABSOLUTELY should familiarize yourself with my photo usage policy (its the link in the red text paragraph near the top). Failure to do so, could have your accounts punished/or terminated by social media platforms.
Motherland: Fort Salem season 2 will air on Freeform in the U.S. sometime in 2021.
