'Sleepy Hollow' films flashback scene in Wilmington.
WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Sleepy Hollow takes a trip back in time, to the 1700's, for a scene filming inside the Cape Fear Club in downtown Wilmington.
In the scene, women are dressed in elaborate costumes, with corsets and petticoats. Men wear ruffled cravats and don bows in their hair. Music from a glass harmonica fills the room.
The cast and crew films this flashback scene for a show based in modern times.
"My grandmothers are very happy that I'm in period costume," Tom Mison said.
Mison plays Ichabod Crane, a man mysteriously resurrected 250 years after his death to fight demons, monsters and of course, the Headless Horseman.
Mison teams up with Lt. Abbie Mills, played by Nicole Beharie.
"Tom is a treat to work with," she said. "He's a gem. I think that this whole thing works because of him."
The show seems to be working.
It's become fall TV's breakout hit.
After just three episodes, FOX announced it planned to pick up Sleepy Hollow for a second season.
"We're stoked because that means we can take the story even further and further than we imagined and the audience has more and more to look forward to," Beharie said.
Even Mison's family, in his native England, is tuning in; a station in the UK picked up the show.
"Family and friends back home are seeing it and yes, my grandmothers are pleased," he said "It's the main thing. That's the focus of my entire career to please my grandmothers."
The feedback from family and from fans is overwhelming.
"I'm blown away," said Beharie. "I just started tweeting and all of the information, the fan art, the commentary as the show is playing, even as it's not playing, it's really blowing my mind. I had no idea that people would care so much and be intrigued and notice every little detail."
Mison said the intrigue will continue all season long. He knows because Executive Producer Alex Kurtzman gave him the scoop.
"We had a very long phone call and he went through fine detail of what happens in this season and ideas for season two and I got off the phone and every hair on my arm was standing on end," Mison said. "It's exciting."
Excitement that the rest of us will have to wait for as the rest of the season of Sleepy Hollow unfolds.
You can watch all the action on FOX Wilmington Monday nights at 9:00 p.m.
