Ever the romantic, I was on set when we filmed Nathan’s blind date. Â In fact, I was one of the extras, and had trouble paying attention since I was riveted by the scene unfolding between Will Conlon’s character, Nathan, and Kelly-Marie Murtha’s character, Angela. Â Blind dates. Always entertaining, always tense, always exciting. Even the scripted ones! Â Kelly-Marie shared some insights on the filming – and real-life – experience:
“When I was asked to reflect on my episode “BlindÂ DateÂ with Nathan” (my episode!! like no one else was inÂ it!) I had a hard time coming up with one or two things when everything about it and theÂ experienceÂ was amazing! But I got to thinking about blind dates… We’ve all hadÂ them at some point – the anticipation, the wondering how it will turn out,Â meeting a complete stranger and hoping that something will click – and I realized that my coming to set was my blind date! Â I had only met a few people at the audition, so comingÂ to actually film the scene was in effect aÂ blind date – the anticipation, wondering how it will turn out, meeting strangers – including Will (“Nathan”) and hopingÂ that we would click.Â Well All I can say is – BEST BLIND DATE EVER!!Â Working with Will was incredible – considering weÂ didn’t know one another, the chemistryÂ we had was so wonderful and that really comes across on screen.Â We clicked! And working with Jason, as an actor, was so refreshing. Â His ability to let you know what he wants and then to just trust you and just let you go isÂ very rare. Put all that together along with the beautiful story and you have aÂ hit!! I told you Jason!! 🙂 ”
