Inspired by a popular Dutch TV show, midseason ABC series Red Widow is about a San Francisco mobster’s widow, Marta Walraven, forced to replace her husband as head of a crime syndicate after his murder. She does this to protect her three children, two of whom were in a scene with her at the Terminal City Ironworks compound in east Vancouver yesterday. The eldest son Gabriel ( Sterling Beaumon) called down to his mother Marta (Radha Mitchell) and younger brother Boris (Jakob Salvati) from the roof of one of the buildings dressed as Keller’s Hardware.
It appeared to be the last exterior scene before production moved inside the compound for a long night shoot.
Here are some other photos of Radha Mitchell and young Jacob Salvati doing a rehearsal in warm coats. Sterling Beamon stayed in shirtsleeves from rehearsal through all the takes.
Red Widow is an eight-episode series penned and produced by Twilight scribe Melissa Rosenberg, who might have been on set this week. Here’s a link to a teaser and cast photo which doesn’t include ER’s Goran Visnjic as mob boss Christian Schiller.
