The momentum has been building and now it's official on Deadline.com!
We shot the entire day (so muggy, so hot!) in S. Thomaston for scenes involving James Sr. and Donna's house. Welcoming Steven Ogg (Walking Dead and Westworld) and Sarah Clarke (24) as Jamie's parents, the day involved a lot of preparation at a local couple's home. The Art Dept. had to transform the kitchen into a '90s house with a rotary phone. I chatted with Sarah in make up about Maine and how she and her husband Xander Berkeley (who plays Grampa Maynard) moved from L.A. to Maine.
For the bait shack scene where James Sr. is on the phone with Anja, we couldn't have a more authentic location.
Below, I just want to show you how much goes into the props of a scene. Prop Master Maisie May (as we like to call her, like the name of Thonchai's boat) put together the entire lobster supper scene (from my memory) and script. Behold the already cooked lobsters, the not cooked corn. The salad. The beers. (Thank you to Allagash Brewery and Harpoon for clearance!)
And here's the scene from afar.
