Ahhhhh!!! It’s day one for our 2nd Nicholas Sparks flick, The Choice! They are filming at Dockside today. No Tom Welling on set today, but you can probably spot the handsome Benjamin Walker. Also Maggie Grace and our local boy, Jesse Boyd! Jesse got a nice fat role, playing the character Matt. He lives in LA now, but he was born and bred in good ol’ Whiteville! Congrats buddy!
You might have seen Jesse in three episodes of the CW show The Originals playing Cary, Klaus’ werewolf relative.
Oh and speaking of which, our local boy, Scott Parks,who has already been on The Vampire Diaries, has a small part on The Originals tonight. Way to go Scott! We love ya! Scott has also been on Homeland and Drop Dead Diva. I LOVE how much talent we have in this town!
Sleepy Hollow is at the sound stages today, but they head back to Water St. tomorrow, apparently dodging plummeting hail. Nice! Of course it is another Sleepy Monday and here’s what we can expect tonight…
Secrets & Lies starts off in Castle Hayne today, then I believe they head over to the Battleship. That should be fun!
Last week, we covered and attended two protests here in Wilmywood.
The first protest was for Governor Pat McCrory, as he was a keynote speaker during the Energy Summit. The second protest was right outside WECT for the Hagan/Tillis debate. We have a little more detailed conversation than the rest of the media (Because we can) . Charles Rourk was on the scene. A lot of you got some good face time 🙂 Check it out below!
