The Flash was shooting scenes for episode 515 or 516 (I think 16) in an alley just off Granville Street in downtown Vancouver. It's an alley they have used OFTEN. So often, I knew exactly where they were going to bring cast in, and hold them etc. They've been in this alley pretty often.
While they were setting up the scene that would be shot first, Chris Klein dressed as Cicada, and Danielle Panabaker dressed up as Killer Frost showed up, and almost walked right thru the crowd of lookie loos, before being turned around by a crew member towards where they were supposed to go. I always can tell what type of "fans" there are at a set by who they recognize.... and this was a perfect example. Danielle, in full KF wardrobe got within about 5 feet of a crowd of 20+ people, and NOT ONE noticed. Clear example that these weren't fans, as much as they were clubbers, stopping by to gawk at all the Hollywood magic going on so they could get instagram likes later.
The crew then worked on a car for about 10 minutes, quite literally sawing thru it, so that when they did a stunt later, it would have the desired effect wanted for it. That stunt, saw The Flash stunt double Cody Laudan dropped from about 30-50 feet in the air, into the car, blowing out all the windows, and leaving a massive person sized dent in it. Cody then shot scenes where he just stayed in the dent, almost motionless, as Cicada does his little up, up & away move with his dagger and leaves. During breaks, you would sometimes see the Cicada double talking to Chris, and seemingly showing him how moves should be done. You see this type of stuff a lot on sets, but this time, it seemed like he was doing it a LOT more than others.
For a brief while, Danielle was on set as Killer Frost, but I never really saw what her role in the scene was. For much of the evening, the main stars were not really around when I saw them shooting. It was primarily the stunt team, and Chris Klein shooting.
A little later, Danielle took off from set, and stopped to take photos with the half dozen or so fans who actually KNEW who she was. A little while later, Grant Gustin showed up in his Flash attire. He then took over from the spot Cody had been in for the last hour. I always feel a little bad for Cody & the other stunt people when I see them do things like they did for Grant, where they had a ladder brought in for him to get up onto the car with, while Cody just had to climb up onto this just recently smashed up car, and climb off it on his own. The crew then shot the same scenes, this time with Grant laying there.
A little while later, Grant would leave, and Danielle would come back to do her work. The set up in the alley made it tough to see anything, so I called it a night at that point, and headed home. So I cant really say what happened between Killer Frost and Cicada in this scene.
The Flash airs on The CW in the U.S. on Tuesdays.
