The cast and crew of the ABC Family channel pilot “Terminales” took over The Boston Globe editorial offices over the weekend. The show, which is about a young reporter who gets diagnosed with terminal cancer, stars
Canadian actress Italia Ricci, Barry Watson (“7th Heaven,” “Gossip Girl”), Australian actor Richard Brancatisano (who plays an adorable music critic), and Mary Page Keller (“24,” “Another World,” and “Mad Men”). Ricci took a few minutes to chat with us during a scene break on Sunday afternoon. She admitted to watching a young Globe reporter writing a story to pick up some of her mannerisms. She also said she’d be happy to move to the Hub if the show gets picked up. She’s found some new favorite restaurants, and loves our winding, cobblestone streets and architecture. “You’re downtown, and you go down a street and then you’re like, Am I in the middle of Amsterdam? Or Paris?” Ricci said she’s also a bit fascinated by our building, specifically by what’s happening around the newsroom and our printing presses. “The presses were so cool. It was hard to concentrate on the scene. I’m too nosy.” Sounds like a real reporter. “Terminales” will shoot around Boston for the rest of the week. Locations have included Fenway Park, the North End, and Davis Square.
