Vampire Stalkers was on site while filming was taking place this Friday. As the crew set up at what is called the Old Lockwood Manor we wondered how much we would see. I can tell you that they set up for what looked like a party scene. They filmed inside and outside. Beautiful Lanterns and flowers along the banisters set the scene. We got really excited once they started pulling in the horse trailers. Unfortunently it began to lighting and rain so we didnt stick it out as long as usual but we had a extra that was filming that night inside so we still hoped for a few details. This is what Danny Capes had to say about his experience.
Dear VampireStalker Fans:
My name is Danny Craig Capes and I played as an extra in the scene they shot Friday night-Sat. morning. Because of confidentality agreement I can not go into what the scene is about. All I can say is that we worked till 5 am Sat.. morning. It was a long and HOT 13 hours!!!!! I was dressed up in my tux and tails and was looking sharp if I have to say so myself. The highlight of the morning was when Ian was walking past me and we made eye contact, shook hands and introduced ourselves. I said “I saw you on last seasons season finale and he said oh yeah, I remember now. He is very nice. I wish I could tell ya what I did but that would give away the storyline. Let’s just say, I will not be wearing a tux like that AGAIN in my lifetime!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please check out Danny’s facebook fanpage. He has done Vampire Diaries more than once and does several other shows and movies in the Atlanta area! We really appreciate Danny sharing his experience with us and look forward to speaking with him in th future. Maybe after this episode airs I can talk him into coming back and giving us more details!
Lets not forget that in one of the many interviews with the cast during the break between season 1 and 2 that it has been stated that we would learn more about the history between the Lockwood’s and the Salvatore’s. I have to wonder if that has any bearing on why we would see Nina, Paul and Ian filming at the Lockwood home from the 1860′s….I don’t want to give anything away though so I’am gonna leave it at that for all of you to ponder as well. While your pondering make sure to check out all the fabulous costumes the cast was in for the flashback scenes. They are amazing.
While we were on set we got a few pictures. Some are of extras and some are of the main cast. I want to thank Tiffanie Humphries for sharing her pictures with me as well.
