I caught up with Supergirl shooting in Surrey at Guildford Mall for episode 516. The director is Tawnia McKiernan. (you may know her name from 4 other Supergirl episodes in the past, including last weeks episode "The Bottle Episode).
This was a rare venture for me, as I dont usually go all the way out to Surrey for anything. But a combination of boredom, and an instagram post from Chyler Leigh got me curious enough to go out and check it out.
Unfortunately, I missed the scenes Chyler did in her new costume. I saw her double later dressed in some of the outfit, but not the whole thing.
What I did see though, and the context of the scene that was mentioned over & over again by the crew as they let the man on stage who at this time I only know by his character name of "Rock Starman" (is there any more of a music name than that??) know what is going on.
The scene has Rock performing on a stage, when suddenly a dragon comes in (obviously to be CGIed in later) and "Supergirl" comes in and saves the day. After its realized the threat has been thwarted, Rock gives an acknowledgement towards Supergirl and continues playing.
Not long after that scene, they did a scene with a mob of people rushing to the stage to cheer..... then, they wrapped.
The location of this concert was at a place called "Obsidian North Platinum" in a location called "Virtual National City Mall", so was this concert for top tier members of Obsidian?
I did find out a couple things, obviously the most important info being the episode number, and episode title. An episode focused on Alex being Supergirl makes some sense when you realize that Melissa Benoist is directing episode 17, and would be busy with prep for that episode right now. Now HOW she ends up that way.... we will have to wait and see.
Below are some photos form the set. But here also is a video of a scene with Alex coming in that a twitter user caught there.
Here are some of the photos I took from the set below. If anyone knows the name of the man playing "Rock Starman" feel free to let me know, and I will credit him accordingly.
