Supernatural stars Jensen Ackles & Jared Padalecki film a late night scene for season 9 in the Downtown Eastside
Its always a good thing when filming is so close to you that you can sit on your porch & shoot the scene.... now only if I had a better camera eh?
Supernatural filmed less than 500 feet from my door recently for a scene in season 9. It was the 2nd set I found from that day for the show. Earlier I caught Castiel doing a scene in Chinatown.
In this scene, we see Sam & Dean (Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles) leave a corner store (I thought it was dressed up as a pharmacy at the time...till I saw a close up of the inside... btw - this is at least the 2nd time they have used this location.... its also the store from Appointment In Samarra... but has closed down & been renovated since then) with some goodies (maybe some pie?) and head towards an alley. When they get there, they are confronted by a man. I couldnt see that scene, but the film notice told me what was going to happen.
In between takes, both actors took the time to wave & acknowledge a group of kids from the neighbourhood that were out there watching them film their scenes. Later, the group, along with me, moved to the next street over to watch from the backside of where they were filming. In between takes, Jensen came out a couple times & was playing around on 1 take, showing off his boxing skills with his bodyguard. In a rare moment (at least in my many experiences) he noticed the group standing watching him, even pointing them out to the guard, and went back to goofing off & being animated in whatever story he was explaining to his bodyguard. Usually I find Jensen tends to try & avoid being at the other end of a camera when hes on set.
Jared spent most of the time (from the times I was able to really see them closer up) in the alley. Thus why I didn't really get any shots of him except when he was right on set filming. But I will have another set of the boys from a couple days later coming up in the next week or 2, more Jareds (and crisper photos..since they were in the daytime) in that set.
Supernatural moves to Tuesday nights this year on The CW starting October 8, 2013.
THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS NOTABLE CHARACTER SPOILERS FOR A CHARACTER ON "SUPERNATURAL" IN SEASON 9. Do not read the article or view the photos if you don't want to see any spoilers for the 9th season.
With so many productions in Vancouver this year, it seems like I just don't spend much time on SPN this year, but its not true. They just simply havent been around as much where I am willing to go to.
But with the film notice I got a week earlier stating they were going to film about 200 feet from my door, I knew they would be in my area that day...and sure enough they were.
After finding the set the night before at our old Vancouver Police Department HQ & missing both the Winchesters & Castiel in different scenes, I caught them out the next day.
First up, I found Castiel (Misha Collins) looking quite un-Cas like. As some of you already know from reading a blog from another local set bloggers report, Castiel was recently seen sneaking into a Laundromat. He has shed his trademark trenchcoat (at the cleaners?) & is now adapting to being a human after last years finale which saw all the angels fall to earth.
This particular day I found Cas roaming the streets of a Michigan city Chinatown area. Two things that caught my interest in the scene.
1st - seems human Cas now notices girls. He does a double take in the scene of a busty actress who does a walk by before he continues on his walk.
The 2nd scene - one that I tweeted about & many of you loved enough to make it probably my most retweeted post ever (certainly in a long time) as 300+ retweets & 150+ Favorites in less than 48 hours, was a scene where he gives change to a woman sitting on the ground with a cup.
Even down & out and probably broke, the fallen Angel decides to give what little money he probably had to a stranger on the street. This could be an interesting plot twist to the fallen angel storyline, will they learn anything by being humans? We have seen in earlier seasons, some of the angels saw human beings as annoyances. Will they learn compasion or empathy for us now that they see what we have to endure daily?
Of course, we wont know if/when the Winchesters will cross paths with their friend, but for now, it seems Castiel is all by himself.
The day prior he did scenes that consisted of him looking in garbage (probably for food?) behind a restaurant, and hiding between two garbage cans in the rain. Looks like tough times for the man who used to get places by simply thinking about it.
I will have another set, this one of the Winchester boys doing their thing in a night scene soon.
Supernatural films scenes for season 9 - Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles & the Impala on set. Guy Norman Bee - Directing
Last month, I came across the set of the most popular show the CW has ever had. Supernatural.
Now in season 9, the multi-time People Choice Award winning show was filming in New Westminster, BC in a lot beside the Canada Games Pool.
On set, the Impala, Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester & frequent Vancouver show director Guy Norman Bee.
Of course Jensen Ackles & Jared Padalecki were doing scenes where they were "investigating" something unusual. This time, it looks like it attracted the army or special forces of some type. I really didnt see too much, the only scenes I saw were the Winchester arriving, getting out of Baby & walking over to the scene, of course strolling right past some cop who apparently knows less than a LARPer about how FBI credentials should look.
I managed to get a few good photos of them before I took off. One of my favorite is a pic of Guy Bee talking to Jensen Ackles. I fould it funny, because this past year Guy finished 2nd in my Best Of TV Awards voting for Best Director. The man who meat him? Jensen Ackles. So maybe Guy was asking him for tips. Ok, probably not. So, here are my 1st on location set of pics this year from Supernatural.... there will be more to come throughout this season. Feel free to check out my past sets
