Selfie with Susanne Döpke (Geek Magazine), Marietta Steinhart (DIE ZEIT), and Mirsad Halilovic (NBCU) who flew in today to talk Dark Matter and take in the super secret on-set action. Between set-ups, I got to sit down and talk season 2 plans, guest stars, and schnitzel! I had a great time. Miss you guys already!
Beware of co-workers bearing gifts. Unless, of course, it’s whisky. Or whiskey!
Script Coordinator Alison Hepburn surprises us with a bottle of Angel’s Envy bourbon.
Roger Cross (SIX) springs a bottle of Yamazaki 14 on us.
Not to be outdone, VFX Supervisor makes his own addition to our little club: Michter’s small batch bourbon.
And key hair magician Renee Chan makes her own contribution: a bottle of Balvenie 12.
Speaking of Renee, I was in the hair and make-up trailer today, meet-and-greeting one of our guest stars (a lovely Lost Girl alum who’ll be playing the role of the nefarious Alicia Reynaud), when the conversation turned to the blog. I mentioned the Q&A’s I used to do with the various crew members while on Stargate and suggested that she, and key make-up magician Linda McCormack, would be perfect candidates for future Dark Matter-related fan Q&A’s. What do you think? I’m sure they have A LOT of great stories. Give me a couple of days and I’ll make the official announcement, then open up this blog for questions.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ll be doing a Periscope this Saturday – a live stream from the set of the show. Follow me on twitter (@BaronDestructo) to get the go-time, but it’s looking like 2:00 p.m. EST. That’s 11:00 a.m. PST, 4 p.m. for fans in Latin America, 5 p.m. for fans in Brazil, 6 p.m. for fans in Australia, 7 p.m. for fans in Portugal, the UK, and 8 p.m. for fans in Germany and the Netherlands. Fans in Asia and Spain should check their world clocks!
