Bahrani Filming at Rockingham  
As mentioned awhile back they had filming to do in North Carolina as well as Illinois. It was unclear whether they would do that during Zac's time off or when. But now we know after they wrapped in Illinois they moved to North Carolina and were filming today. Guessing but I think they are maybe catching some of the interior or close-up car shots they need for the ARCA race. They did only have a brief time to film in Iowa, and no time during the race. But who knows?

Anyway, here is a shot of them prepping Dean's car today:

Earlier in Iowa, for comparison:

Okay, I knew I wasn't going crazy when I thought they had to film in North Carolina. But sucks they have to film on his birthday. Maybe the cast/crew will sing happy birthday to him during one of their breaks.

This would be the second year in a row Zac has had to work on his birthday :(

That's what I was thinking. But tbh he's most likely used to it. Everything doesn't stop just because its your birthday like it does when you were a kid, ya know? But OMFG I'd LOVE to see the cast/crew sing to him haha. That would be too funny.

Wait, didn't he work on his birthday when he was filming CsC also?

Yeah, I understand he's probably used to it, but it's just birthdays only come around once a year, but at least he's working and doing something he enjoys. I don't believe he was filming CSC on his birthday, unless I've forgotten.

Side Note: It seems as though the people there already found out what hotel Zac is staying at from tweets I've seen. I really hope they don't act like how the people in IL acted. I saw people say they were going to find him, and you know they're not gonna go alone.

Yeah I saw that also. Everyplace is different but the cast of the Hunger Games filmed in NC all summer and seemed to be left alone, then again they aren't as big as Zac so I'm not sure.

Anyone know how long he's there for?
Miranda gives everyone a chancemirandagirll on October 18th, 2011 02:41 am (UTC)
I would assume not long (like a couple days), but I'm not the expert on these things, so don't take my word for it.

Since we don't know exactly what they are shooting, have we even established that he's there?

He's been spotted by a few fans according to Twitter.

And unless my (admittedly horrible) eyes are deceiving me, I think he's in the picture above:)

Sadly, some of these towns are so small there is probably only one decent hotel for him to stay in. I just hope people are respectful and that he feels safe and comfortable enough to meet fans now that he's away from the mess that was some of the Illinois fans.

Fans have NEVER been as bad as they were IL have they? That was CRAZY.

Clearly the Midwest likes Zac..............that or they don't have anything else to do but stalk the only celeb in town haha.
The Writers Denmusewriter on October 18th, 2011 02:56 am (UTC)
I don't think so...at least I've never seen it hit such a fever pitch. On one hand I get it. Having grown up in rural Ohio, there literally is nothing to do in some of the small towns in the Midwest. And, this was probably one of the few or the maybe the only time such a big celebrity was scheduled to come to town. I understand the excitement, but some people clearly lost common sense and courtesy in the situation.

"Fans have NEVER been as bad as they were IL have they? That was CRAZY."

I'm a little concerned by the thought that the fan situation might be evolving. As Zac gets older, so do the fans, not just in age but also in attitudes. At the time of HSM, he was an innocent kid, and while the fans were frantic, they were innocent too. We saw some bitching from parents on the Isle of Man during M&OW, and now we're seeing anger and profanities from the "fans" themselves in Illinois. I really think he needs to get serious about security on set. At home he's got a world-class alarm system, and the paparazzi have taught him how to be unpredictable and elusive when he's out and about. And he has heavy-duty bodyguards at premieres and other scheduled public events. The only place where his location is known and he doesn't have close security is on set. Better take care of that.

If I were Zac, I'd pony up the dough for onset security myself on any future smaller budget films. I sure wouldn't wanna risk another shoe stealing or hotel room break in incident. You never know what some "fans" are capable of...

I have to agree with this. When HSM came out, he was a young teenager, the fans were even younger. Well that was a long time ago. The fans aren't young kids anymore. Most are teenagers and young adults now and excuse the language but they've grown some balls and are willing to do things they wouldn't have thought of doing when they were a young kid.

I think its easier for him to get around LA because a lot of the people in LA are used to seeing famous people, when he goes to these random small towns most of those people had never seen a famous person if their lives. I really just think he needs to have it on his contract that he gets security on set.

It really does suck how he was treated here. He didn't deserve it at all!!! People take thing to far and for granted way to much these days. They should of respected the fact that they were even allowed on set to watch filming and to be able to meet him. It just really ruins it for the other fans like me who aren't crazied!! I hope one day he will come back though. I had waited three hours but he decided that night to not do pics or autographs which yea I was a little disappointed but then in the end just happy to of been able to see a movie be filmed. I do truly feel blessed to of had the chance for that. So thank you! And I feel so terrible for his things that got taken! Just because he's a celebrity they go crazy and cross the line when really he is just like us... HUMAN!!!

Since it's the end of filming and hence he won't endanger production once they finished those scenes... perhaps they let him drive a bit for real. I'm sure he would like that (although his mom probably won't).

Remember how his father freaked at him for bungee jumping? Haha I can picture him having a heart attack if Zac drove a race car.
