The cast & crew of DC's Legends Of Tomorrow were on location for the 1st episode of the season last week in the Gastown area of downtown Vancouver.
This was of course the first location shoot for the show since returnign to film after the entire industry shut down in March for COVID-19. Legends was lucky enough to evade the pitfalls of having to shut down mid-season, but like everyone else, had their new seasons filming delayed until October. In the prolonged off season, a few notable things happened with Legends, from Shayan Sobhian and Olivia Swann getting bumped to regulars, to Maisie Richardson Sellers announcing her departure, to co-lead Dominic Purcell announcing he contracted the deadly COVID-19 back in June.
On set this day, the cast consisted of Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory, Tala Ashe as Zari 2.0, Matt Ryan as John Constintine, Olivia Swann as Astra Logue, Jes Macallan as Ava Sharpe, and Shayan Sobhian as Behrad Tarazi.
The opening scene saw the cast, minus Shayan go out in a downpour to do rehearsals. By the time they came back out to shoot the scene, the weather had tapered off enough that it was at times completely dry, and rarely more than a soft sprinkle. The scene seemed to be a continuation from the season finale, as all the characters were still wearing their wardrobes from the final scene of the finale.... except now, it was daytime, where as the season ended at night. The group is walking down the street together, while Astra is appearing to be counting something that I can only assume is supposed to be a currency of some type.
After that scene, they shot a scene with just Shayan, and a man dressed as a British Queens Guard. Behrad has some type of food item in his hand, and converses (well, talks to the guard) while eating, before turning away & leaving there.
The final public scene they shot had the group from the 1st scene, run into Behrad, and the group then have a conversation with the 5 standing on 1 side, Behrad on the other. Shortly after that scene, they wrapped that location & moved the entire production 2 blocks up the street to the often used Burrard Ironworks building, whic is easily 1 of the 10 most commonly used buildings in Vancouver filming. Unfortunately, its almost always interior shoots there, so I cant really say what happened in those scenes. But it is generally used to represent small bars, as it has a lounge on the lower floor, or interiors of an apartment/loft on the upper floor.
This was also my 1st chance this season to interact with any cast at a set. I learned quickly that while some shows are being more loose with what can & cant happen, the Legends Covid officer was pretty stern about the cast cant interact with fans. Which makes sense when you take into consideration one of their leads contracted it earlier this summer.
UPDATE: October 23, 2020 - video added at the bottom
Legends Of Tomorrow will return for season 6 in later 2021.
