Caprica back on Location

August 12, 2009

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…


  1. Thank you for these photos of Caprica. January 22 is just around the corner!

  2. Dear Spacepug: yes, the fabulous house of Dr. Daniel Graystone is a real house that was used for the shooting of the pilot. Then it was copied for a stage set. I did some research and found a comment that it was a real house facing the sea in upper? greater?? Vancouver. Now I want to know who designed & built it, and may be, who lives there. Sincerely, Luhra

  3. Ok, Caprica is on and running, let’s get those locations up!

    Separately, I’m kicking myself for not being an extra in BSG (though various connections in Vancouver) but maybe now is a good time…

    Any idea of the filming schedule?


    • Caprica wrapped shooting sometime around January 27th, so until a second season is ordered, no more chances to be an extra!

      I’ve done a quick listing of some of the locations we’ve seen so far in my review of “Rebirth” https://13thcolony.wordpress.com/2010/01/30/caprica-rebirth-survivors-guilt/ It’ll be at least another month until we get out on another location scouting tour because of the Winter Olympics. Many of the downtown locations are just a bit too busy with all the extra people in town. We’ll get there…
