The Killing almost went unnoticed filming its season 3 finale in the 2100 block of Napier Street in east Vancouver on Friday. A few people stopped and stared for a bit but fans didn’t find the shoot until mid-afternoon. A prop Seattle police squad car and two unmarked ones lined the residential neighbourhood for scenes of our detective duo Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman) meeting Lieutenant James Skinner (Elias Koteas) , head of Seattle’s Special Investigations Unit and Linden’s former lover, on site. Is this the house of a suspect? Or a victim’s parents? We’ll have to wait and see. Crew said there wasn’t anything spoilery about the day’s shoot but to watch out for episode ten. That’s the big one.
Production then broke for lunch and Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman strolled down the street to the craft tent. It’s hard to believe that these two laid-back actors are about to become movie stars with Enos as Brad Pitt’s wife in zombie apocalypse feature World War Z in theatres this Friday and Kinnaman starring in the RoboCop reboot expected in theatres in February 2014.
After lunch, Enos and Kinnaman sauntered back to the house opposite the one of their scene with Elias Koteas and hung out on the porch in their set chairs chatting and checking their phones ahead of the interior shoot.
The Killing airs Sundays on AMC.
