I cannot tell you how pleased I was to see this empty chair in the midst of a crowd of extras and film crew today. Caprica is back in Vancouver and was shooting today at the Central Library in Downtown Vancouver. Polly Walker is the main reason I’m wishing January 22, 2010 would get here faster. Not only is she an extremely talented actress (watch Rome if you are unfamiliar with her work), but she did so much with so little screen time in the Caprica pilot. She made the character of Clarice seem sinister yet sympathetic, and absolutely fascinating.
Here’s a link to a few pictures I took of today’s shoot. Nothing spoilery except for some costume items that give a sense of atmosphere. Oh yeah, and some random guy in the crowd who I didn’t even notice was there until I got home and checked the pics…leave it to spacepug to miss the handsome leading man!
Since Caprica will be shooting in Vancouver for several more months, I want to make a couple of things clear. I will not publish shooting locations in advance. I will not publish any photos that I believe are spoilers. In general, I think true fans are much more careful of not spoiling something for their fellow fans since they themselves want to enjoy the show completely when it finally airs….many months from now. What I will do is pass along whatever snippets I think will help keep fans excited and interested in what is coming. Clear? Maybe not. We will see…
