Yes, Zoie Palmer kicked ass today. For about eleven hours – punching, blocking, shoving, kicking, hurling, staring down, and choking out multiple opponents. And that was just in the lineup to get lunch! The extended action sequence we shot was intense, and Zoie looked like she’d been beating up guys all of her life (food for thought the next time I consider giving her a line reading). Actors Roger Cross, Marc Bendavid, Anthony Lemke, and Alex Mallari Jr. proved equally skilled – at getting their butts kicked.
A special thanks to stunt coordinator John Stead who did a phenomenal job choreographing the fight and stunts, his awesome team, and director T.J. Scott who captured all the action. They get to do it all over again next week. Twice!
I know, I know. Many of you are asking for pics of Zoie – and I do plan to post some…eventually. But given her unique look or the show, I’m going to have to wait until the official reveal – hopefully sometime sooner than later.
Also, sadly, no “dance of the day” for this blog entry as actor Alex Mallari Jr. (FOUR), was too busy…shooting a t.v. show. But I’m sure he’ll make it up to us by offering up something REALLY special tomorrow. Failing that, I wonder if we can convince Anthony Lemke to fill in?
Today’s screen grab of the day…
After dinner tonight, Akemi pointed out that Valentine’s Day was fast-approaching and wondered whether the show would be doing a chocolate exchange similar to the Dark Matter cookie exchange we did in December. When I told her it was unlikely, she seemed genuinely disappointed. Maybe we need to organize something amongst us our little blog community.
