Caprica set report: train station scenes

One of the extras who was on the Caprica set for the train explosion scene posted a report at ComicRelated.com. Actors Paula Malcomson, Avan Jogia and Genevieve Buechner were spotted on the set.

The train scene is basically what sets the events of Caprica in motion. Avan Jogia plays Ben Stark, a young student converted to monotheism by his teacher, who blows up the train, killing himself, his girlfriend Zoe (Alessandra Toreson), Joseph Adama's wife and daughter, and many other people in the process.

Zoe's father Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz) then uncovers an online avatar of his tech savvy daughter and, being a wealthy computer genius, uses it to create the first Cylon model.

Here is a snippet from the report:

The first day we were called to the Vancouver Film Studios where Galactica is shot and, before signing in, were directed to Wardrobe to get our outfits approved. The look was to be “New York, think 1940s”. This was only a general guideline however. Suits and upscale casual wear in muted colors were the order of the day for the men, brighter prints for us gals. But nothing flashy. We were morning commuters heading to work. Props included coffee cups, Caprica Times newspapers, and briefcases all liberally distributed. Most of the men were given fedoras and other brim hats, trench coats abounded.
