Fringe [finished filming its third] to last episode ever today in the pouring rain in Vancouver’s West End in front of fans who’d travelled from as far as Australia and Russia to see their show wrap. The highlight of the morning had to be a big hug scene between Joshua Jackson’s Peter Bishop and his TV father, John Noble’s Walter Bishop. They did a long walk and talk out of an alley and up Bute Street, filmed by a camera crew on a cart and another camera crew using a tracking shot. Each time the pair were to embrace, a crew member called out “hug”. And when the camera crew was filming Anna Torv’s Olivia and Rowan Longworth’s Child Observer walking up behind father-and-son and the “hug” cue given, Joshua Jackson embraced cameraman Chris instead. So on a cold, very wet day of filming a lot of fun was had on set.
[Update: Anna Torv’s Olivia Dunham and Rowan Longworth’s Child Observer Michael.]
Fringe’s fifth & final season airs Fridays at 9 p.m. on FOX in the U.S. and Citytv in Canada.
