JEWELSTAITE


Hello to the faithfuls:

Just an update, since you've asked. Or maybe you haven't actually asked, but I'm giving you one anyway. Just completed another week on the "BDM" at our home-away-from-home, Universal. We were doing some special effects-type shots and stunt work, which takes a loooong time to complete and requires little acting. So we did a lot of laughing instead. Nathan was his usual crazy self, doing his "old material" as he likes to call it... but somehow it never stops being funny. It's always great to work as a group, and have everyone there. Just like old times, right?

We've heard a little rumor that there will be some browncoats joining us come Monday. We will be filming our "Beaumonde" stuff, which takes place right in front of our cargo bay. If I don't get a chance to meet everyone, I'll welcome you now and say that our set is one of the friendliest, happiest sets around. And no, I'm not giving you baloney-- we are still having fun and still loving every minute of it.


As for me personally, I'm taking my weekend to relax, see some movies with my hubby, and go to a party at Nathan's this evening. (see? we really do hang out together when we're not working!) I seem to have used too much self-tanner this morning and I look like I've been rolling around in dirt, but alas, these problems can be solved. For anyone requiring additional personal information (I won't put you through it involuntarily), you can visit http://jewelstaite.net where I've been trying to write letters at least bi-weekly. A dear friend named Roger runs that site, and he posts my silly and sometimes meaningless comments about my life and my life on Serenity in a "dear roj" column. Again, it can be boring, so don't read it unless you have nothing else to do. But I'm alternating between posting here, there, and at the "green" firefly site, just in case you need more news on the good ol BDM!!

You guys are awesome, awesome, and awesome. I love reading all of your (sometimes hilarious) posts and I can't WAIT for you guys to check out this movie!! It is going to rule the 'verse!

Love, me.

(Jewel)

Good to hear from you Jewel. Never thought that is 34 year old cynic would become such a Browncoat fangal *grin*.

Greetings you.

Love your site. Was reading your letters to Roj [ http://users.ev1.net/%7ealternity/tv/jewel_staite/notes.html].

In answer to your query as to why Stage 12 is always refered to as "legendary" -- it may be due to the fact that at 30,000-square-feet it is the largest Stage on the Universal lot. Notable movies filmed in Studio 12 include "Jurassic Park", "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and more recently "Troy".

Have fun on the set and send my love to Ms. Torres and the rest of the crew.

Lady Jewel,

Always great to hear from you. Glad to hear everything is going well. You are our link to what's going on. Now that I think of it, your posts are like the official 'unofficial blog' for what is going on on the set. So keep posting when you have the time. We can't get enough. Take care, and make good film.

Thank you for the update!

Any chance you can cajole The Powers That Be to make sure there's a gooooood loooooooong gag reel on the DVD for the BDM???? Just smile at them and bat your eyes and I'm sure they will do whatever you suggest. If it's even remotely possible, this Firefly fan would be more happy than she already is!

I haven't been posting here for very long at all, although I have been lurking a fair bit here and there. But I have to say, and I guess this is the fanboy in me a bit, but it is extremely cool seeing one of our BDH actually posting on this site, participating in the community, and being genuinely happy to do it. Thanks for the update, and hello from Tennessee.

Thanks for the update.
<>. That's the coolest part of it, the fact that you guys all get along so well. In case you don't know, but all of you probably do, it does show in the on screen performances. The fans can tell when a cast gets along and it's great. We can also tell when they don't, and that also comes through. You see some shows or movies and you just know that when the director says "cut" everybody disappears from the set in opposite directions. I'm glad you guys are in the former category and it shows.

Hey, they're finally getting to Beumonde. Here's hoping Saffron doesn't get in their way like she did last time. On second thought, I would love it if Christina Hendricks could make another appearance. Great news.

Thanks for posting again Jewel. Is so shiny to hear from you, and I must say it is an honor to have you posting w/ us when you can find time. You just make us Browncoats all warm and fuzzy wuzzy.

Hope you were able to relax & enjoy your weekend w/ the hubby. You deserve it. Give our best to all the cast & crew. Take care.

Hi. I'm new here so I'll keep it brief. Despite being a long time Buffy/Angel fan I never watched Firefly. But after accidentally stumbling onto this site and seeing that the stars of the show, of all people actually care enough to post here, I was so impressed, I decided check out the DVD. What can I say? I loved it. I never imagined I'd get hooked on a show because the actors were nice people. Sorry for not watching earlier but I will be in line for the movie. Thanks.

It simply couldn't be cooler to have the cast interact with the fans like this. Firefly was my favorite show in years even before this, so now it's off the charts.

I looked at Jewel's site, and the last picture under the candid section is of her dog, a golden cocker spaniel named Teddy. I had a golden cocker named Teddy when I was like 6... Coincidence? Absolutely.

Jewel, You are welcome here A-N-Y-T-I-M-E. We love your posts. Watching this movie will be like no movie I have ever seen. You are our Big Damn Hereos. I any of you get invited to the Tulsa Trek Expo next year please say yes. It's been very Trek based in the past though currently it is dominated By SG1 which My wife & I love. But we want the BDH's in Tulsa.

Keep enjoying the job I would love to have.

Jewel:

Thanks so much for keeping us all updated on things! One thing we can all say for Joss' shows is that for everyone of us psycho fans there is at least one actor who goes out of their way to connect with us fans. With Firefly we have at least 3 which is amazing, proof positive that Joss does pick some of the finest human beings to work on his stuff (not to mention good actors). We do appreciate all you guys do to keep us delusional and in love with TV and the movies (well at least I do), as well as in lurve with the Joss-man.
Let Everyone know we are excited like kids at christmas, or perhaps overwhelmed with an an-tici-pation not seen since Rocky Horror. Keep up the good work. You keep flyin' and we'll keep watchin'!

Hello Jewel,

Thanks so much for posting again! Great to hear it's all still going so well, and thanks for keeping us informed. It makes the long wait so much more bearable. You are awesome, awesome, and awesome. And awesome.

Having also just read your latest letter on jewelstaite.net I must say I'm really envious that you and the other BDHs get to watch the new footage from "Serenity" every day!!! It really does sound like amazing things are happening, true movie magic (not that we Browncoats ever doubted that it would be) and I'm sure that all your hard work will ultimately be rewarded with one of the biggest hits of 2005!

It's also nice to see that you're already booked to attend more conventions. (Unsubtle Hint: Hope to see you at Starfury: Serenity in London next year!)

Keep flying,




Ade
