Good evening!! Thanks for your patience everyone. I got home from my adventures on set at 1am and I had to wake up at 6am for work... I'm KNACKERED! Jsut got home, got some food in the belly - time to type this sucker up!


Okay, so while I was at work yesterday I saw a tweet that mentioned iZombie would be filming in Gastown that evening. I figured I'd poke my head down there and see how my luck is. Of course, ask altocello - my luck is good for some reason, lol.

So I find the set (the convoy of filming trucks gives it away like whoa) and watch them set up from across the street. They've transformed the end of the block to look like America, so US and State flags and license plates, and changed signage. They do a camera rehersal, and then it's time for filming!

Like I said, I came from work, so all I had was my shitty old iPhone camera - picture quality is gonna be shit.


So the scene I saw goes like this:

Bradley's character (who's name is unknown to me and as the show doesn't follow the comic, I can't even make a guess) dressed all in black steps out of a storefront called "Grunge Records" with his guitar case.

He turns left out the door and starts to make his way when Liv (Rose MacIver) wolf whistles at him.

He pauses, turns around slowly and after recognizing her says an astonished "Hey!"

They meet and their dialogue is quiet, so I dont know what is said durning the conversation.

But Liv grabs him into a kiss.

They separate. A beat of realization. Then right back into it super passion kiss! On the final go of it, the director was calling it out hilariously: "..aaaaand come apart - look at her .. aaaaaand BACK IN!! HANDS IN HER HAIR! AWW YEAH!!!" after that one, everyone cheered and applauded, and Bradley and Rose were laughing. Good times all around.

(If that embed doesn't work, click here)

That scene was gone over and over and over again, felt like over 30 takes. And it only lasts about 60 seconds! :P

In the end, it was 11pm when they wrapped.

Whoa, love interest for the lead girl? I think that means he'll have a few more episodes for sure! Till break-up? Season's end? Series end? Character death? WHO KNOWS? I shall keep my eyes peeled. But no more live tweeting from set after someone on my twitter feed leaked it before I could post.

Meeting Bradley James

So during the filming I got chatting with another woman watching (alrighty83) who was there to watch Rose MacIver shoot. Must be all that stagedoor'ing I did in London, but I said to her that we should try and wave them over here (across the street) after filming. So after the wrap, she spots Bradley, and we cross the street to meet him, but a PA is talking to him, so we wait by. Suddenly, he crosses the street to where we used to be standing, where a car was waiting! So we dash back across the street following him and the PA.

Alrighty83 calls out "Bradley! Can we take a picture with you?" at the same time I'm calling out "Mr. James!", lol. We are literally in the middle of the street, cuz Bradley is at the car door (in the street) and we are behind him (REALLY in the street). This moment is a bit of a blur because I was to busy trying to get us all OUT of the street and on the sidewalk - remembering the clusterfuck of folks stopping the Mojo guys in the middle of the street and it being really awkward...
He seemed surprised, for sure! and we made our way to the sidewalk, he says "Where do you want me?", and I had to be sure to keep a civil tongue at THAT!

As I was fussing with my phone, I told him that I couldn't believe he was here on this side of the Atlantic, and he said "Yeah this is where I hang out now!". Alrighty83 said she didn't recognize him with his coloured hair and he said "Yeah they did a great job - I'm totally different! No chainmail! I'm not sure if I asked him if it was first time in Vancouver, but I asked him how he was liking it, and he said that Vancouver has been great.

Pictures taken, we said thanks and good night, and maybe it was my own exhastion speaking, but I told him to go home and get some sleep, lol.

Good times!

Fantastic luck as usual, Amph! I think that's great that you were able to find the set, that you were able to get a good little scoop about his role (even if we don't know his name), and were able to meet him. I'm sure he was surprised to find a fan there in Vancouver! \o/

I'm glad he was so nice to you, too, cuz you're one of the nicest people I know!

*twirls you* I'm so happy for you! Eeeeee!

(sorry for the icon, it's my only Bradley one!)

I had to change my icon because of you! LOL!!

Yeah it's hard to get info out of the crew. They are totes professional. I even asked one of the make-up artists if that was Bradley James on set, and she said "I'm not allowed to say". And a fluke had the show name being spread wrong! As I watched, other passers-by said "hey did you know they are shooting "Eyes On Me" here? .. and I was shaking my head.... eyes on me.... izombie... clever.

Thanks Foxy!! I figured I ought to step up to the plate, since it feels like i'm probably the only damn person in the Lower Mainland that knows of him. LOL!! I think that might be why he was surprised.

Wow, that's so cool you got to see them filming. Lucky girl! And to get a picture and a conversation with him - incredibly jealous over here!

Great picture - though I still can't get used to him with that hair.

Thank you SO MUCH for doing this. And then sharing it!!!! I love seeing his new look. And glad to hear he's having fun. So so so good to know he's filming.

And jolly decent of him to stop n chat/pose late at night.

He looks slightly slighter than before? Or is that the angles?

Sorry some dipshit pinched your tweets. 😒

Thanks again for being our roving reporter!! 👍💛

I remember when Merlin filming would be going on and we'd get our fix from all the fans at PF, and I realized that there wasn't anything like that here, so I thought I ought to step up and give back some love!

Just a moment while I gather the right words...


Yup... that sums it up!

"Where do you want me?" Oh Bradley, you're precious.

Thanks for the report and sorry some asshole posted from your twitter. I was so cross when I saw the photo - it was obvious where it had been lifted from. Hope you can work out who and block them!

Wowow!!!!! Amazing, Amph!! Lovely report! Bradleeeeyyyy! So he hangs out there now. He does look beat there, getting some sleep was good advice :) Must be tedious to film, 30 takes of the same scene. That reminds me of Colin saying the same line over and over again on the set of Legend. She is the lead? Coool. But she is the zombie, right? How does that work.
Can I tell you that profile pic of Bradley gives me such Arthur feelzz...

Well done!
This week has been awesome for us fangirls.

yeah it was late when they wrapped, so looking a bit tired was to be expected. I'm not sure how the zombie love story works, lol - especially since the show doesn't follow the comic.

It's so good to get news, to see he's well and working, to see anything at all really!

Thanks for sharing this experience and you managed damn nice pics and vids, especially since this was unplanned and unprepared.

How you managed to still function after his 'Where do you want me', is a small miracle.

That was partly what motivated me. I remember when Merlin was filming and the fans at PF would keep us in the loop... but there's nothing like that here, so I figured I should repay the debt! YAY KARMA!

An evening well-spent! :D Thanks for sharing your photos and putting together the set report. Looks like I'll need to keep an eye peeled for iZombie on the CW, eh? ;)

So he's now hanging out in either Van specifically or the West Coast generally, eh? Can't say I blame him if it's Van specifically -- gorgeous city and surroundings, generally friendly and considerate population, climate akin to the UK. :) (I got to visit Vancouver a few times in the late '90s while UPN's "The Sentinel" was filming up there).

Again, thanks for sharing your Bradley sighting and set report, and here's to your continued good luck, eh? ;)

Date: 2014-10-18 06:20 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yeah, all his sightings have been in Vancouver, and if you know how filming is in BC, you can expect him to be all over the Lower Mainland. They film EVERYWHERE! It's probably great to be in the same timezone as LA too - which is why so much filming is done here.

You lucky, lucky woman. I was so excited to see this report. I was wondering where they were going to be filming it. Great report, btw.

I've requested to follow you on twitter. I thought I'd done that ages ago. :\

Had to laugh at the "Where do you want me?" Oh, Bradley, never change!

It's frustrating because it's virtually impossible to know when and where they film. They dont announce it or anything like at PF, and they don't have a single repetitive filming location like at PF.

So I was VERY lucky!
