Scooper ‘mumsie’ sent in this report from the X-Men 3 set in Victoria, British Columbia. The report includes a first description of the head of Beast and much more:
I am a student at Royal Roads University and thoroughly enjoyed watching the filming. Security was tight but polite with students and let us watch as long as we were quiet, stayed where they asked us and did not have a camera.
I ran into Patrick Stewart twice and he was very gracious. He took time to talk to several children who asked him if he was having fun. He replied that he was having a great time getting to play a super hero.
I also had the luck of literally walking into Kelsey Grammer with his Beast head on, T-Shirt and shorts…I was going up the driveway to my car and he was coming down to the castle…The Beast is awwwwwesome!…I didn’t recognize him because I was so astonished with the face…I told him he was “looking good” and then recognized his voice when he said thanks. The face is jet black and huge and builds up on his squarish features. Just at the side the skin turns a deep blue with a solid line running down the side so his ears are blue and his neck and shoulders. The hair is a different blue and looks like he put his finger in an electric socket. No one will be disappointed !
Following Kelsey was Hugh Jackman in costume as Wolverine…honest…talk about luck!…he grinned back at me when I asked if I could shake his hand he said sure and came over…shook my hand…then he looks back at me over his shoulder as I am still standing there with this astonished look on my face and, still grinning, he says “there…that was easy, wasn’t it?”…now that man is gorgeous!
I am a die hard Star Trek fan so my favorite memory is going to be Patrick Stewart in the middle of the lawn with only a few of us standing around and not bothering him as he talked to someone on the phone for about 10 minutes. Jean Luc is alive and well…or, as I said to the Security guard…”it’s a miracle…the professor…he’s walking!”
