Philly Wood is in high gear between Queer Eye and Dispatches from Elsewhere filming around town. Let’s get started with Philly Gossip here on chitchat every Sunday. Thanks to all my readers for the tips and photos you sent. Some with credit, others want to be anonymous but are just fans who want to support the fun in Philly. I really appreciate it.
Before heading over to Rittenhouse Square to film on Friday, Dispatches filmed a scene in Elixir Coffee Rittenhouse 207 S Sydenham St, with Jason Segal. He had a long day, as the film wrapped at 430am on Saturday. Remember to follow me on Instagram, where I often video scenes of the movie shoot in real time in the Insta Stories. PhillyChitChat
BTW look who stopped by the set on Friday night, James McAvoy (Split, Glass) and Lisa Liberati
(James met Lisa when he filmed the movie Split here in Philly, and
they’ve been together ever since.) to visit a few of their friends in
the film industry. They later headed across the street to enjoy dinner
at Parc. Later in the evening James met his idol Sally Field, where he
stated I don’t believe you should ever meet your idols, but in this case
I did and it wasn’t a disappointment. I don’t want to start a rumor but
is that a wedding band on Lisa’s finger?
Friday Queer Eye Fab Five were spotted filming all day at The Walnut Street Cafe in the FMC/AKA building in University City.
