UPDATE: August 2, 2019 - News of the mystery girl has been added.
I once in a while have the luxury of stepping outside of my place and find a film set right there. On this day, the crew and cast of Supergirl were working in the building that is across the street from my place.
All of the filming on the first day, and most of the 2nd day was inside the Orpheum Theatre. The only exterior was a walking scene with background actors at the end of the 2nd day of filming there. The building is well known in Vancouver, and has been used by most every show out there at some point.
Early on the 1st day I saw some of the stunts team standing around outside waiting to film. At different points there I saw the doubles for Melissa, Nicole, Chyler, Jesse and a new girl that I do not yet know (* August 2 - we now know that it is Jennifer Cheon Garcia as "Midnight") .
During the lull that came with the morning shooting, I went for a walk and found the circus for the set. There was A LOT of cast trailers there, and were prepped for work that day. As you can see from the photos below, I saw the trailers for several of the cast, but could not see them all because of the angles they were parked at. I found it a bit odd that Nia Nal has a tape marker on her trailer, but Kelly Olsen already has a full printed plate for her door.
Back at the set, I managed to run into David Harewood and Jesse Rath as they left for their lunch break in the early afternoon and got some autographs from them on something cool I am trying to work on.
Later in the afternoon, I saw Melissa Benoist going to set in her Supergirl wardrobe, but she was hiding it under some type of sweater or blanket.
In the evening, we saw Katie McGrath and Nicole Maines head out to go grab burgers at Five Guys still in full Lena Luthor and Dreamer wardrobe. Nicole posted on her instagram about the experience of doing it HERE.
Little was really known about what was going on inside the theatre. All anyone can really confirm is what cast were there. Besides the ones mentioned in this article, Chyler Leigh and Azie Tesfai were the only other cast known to be there that I did not get photos of, or interact with at some point.
