It’s been two-and-a-half weeks since The CW’s midseason drama Cult started filming as a series in Vancouver. And sightings have been rare until yesterday when several people spotted their production signs DARK out on campus at the University of British Columbia. Finding the set proved much more difficult, but here they are tucked away inside the Buchanan quadrangle to film a steadycam scene of Matt Davis and Jessica Lucas walking and talking through a crowd of student extras.
Matt Davis (The Vampire Diaries) stars as Jeff an investigative journalist searching for his brother whose disappearance may be linked to the fans of a horror TV series called Cult recreating what they’ve seen on the show. Jeff enlists the help of Jessica Lucas’s production assistant from the show-within-a-show. “When the line between the imagined and reality is broken” is the meta tagline.
Below is a slumbering racoon high on the ledge outside the windows where a handful of real UBC students watched the filming.
