THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/13/2014 Day One for The Choice, Sleepy Hollow, More Protest Coverage

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! Jesse

You might have seen Jesse in three episodes of the CW show The Originals playing Cary, Klaus’ werewolf relative.

scottparksOh 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!

ICYMI: After months of consideration and some really hard work from a few folks, Under the Dome will be returning to Wilmywood after all.

grace_victoria_coxI got up with Grace Victoria Cox, who plays Melanie on the show, and she was thrilled! “I’m really excited to go back to Wilmington! I love the South. I miss it so much. Wilmington feels like another home to me :-)”

“It is our pleasure to return to North Carolina for our third season of Under the Dome,” said Kevin Berg, Executive Vice President of Production for CBS Television Studios. “The film community in the state, and particularly in the greater Wilmington area, is simply outstanding.”  READ MORE AT WFMY

You damn right Kevin Berg!  Again, like I said last night, if politicians think that this will calm us down, they are dead wrong!  This is only one crew.  We can go 5 crews deep in Wilmington, plus we have crew in Charlotte, Asheville and Winston-Salem that still need a job!

We have a long way to go until we get Tier 1 film incentives back, so make sure you get out and VOTE!  We need the right folks in place during the 2015 Long Session so we can indeed have that status once again!

PROTEST AFTERGLOW

Yesterday, film supporters as well as advocates for conservation, education and women’s rights gathered for two protests.  The first protest was for Governor Pat McCrory, as he was a keynote speaker during the Energy Summit.  I was told they had a bigger attendance for the breakfast than they did for our Governor.  When asked how the governor received the “Welcome Wagon” aka 100 protesters, I was told, “he was rattled.”

The second protest was right outside WECT for the Hagan/Tillis debate.  7 people stood out there in support of Tillis while about 60 folks were there for Hagan. About two days ago, one of my political insiders told me Tillis’ camp is hurting for support in Southeastern North Carolina, especially New Hanover County.  Mission accomplished!

HUGE thanks to Christine Poppe White for most of these awesome shots!  You rock lady! We will also have some follow up video from WGSR (Greensboro) next week. Yes, they traveled all the way to Wilmywood to support us! Thank you Charles and Jonathan!

Stephen Collins who most know from the television show 7th Heaven, and many here know him as Dr. Gene Porter from Revolution has been accused of sexually

SteveCollinsabusing three underage girls. According to CNN’s NewDay, in the divorce documents filed by his estranged second wife, Faye Grant, Collins admitted to her that he molested them more than a decade earlier. Two of the girls lived in New York, one in Los Angeles, according to the divorce papers. Police in New York are aware of child molestation allegations by a former relative against Collins, but due to the statute of limitations, he cannot face charges in that case. In New York, a person has five years from their 18th birthday to make an accusation of sexual abuse to authorities. That time has passed.
