With so many people (including us) who can’t wait to see the next series of Top of the Lake (TopOfTheLakeBBC), I was happy to receive the call about the final pickup scenes for the new season. A pickup is an extra scene that is shot late in the production cycle to fill in any gaps or reshoot something that wasn’t quite right. As much as I am desperate to see the new season, I am so happy that they are taking a diligent approach. It gives me more faith that the series is going to be a red hot cracker.
All through last year we had background and featured actors going on set to film Top of the Lake and now we will have some of the original actors and others in the pickup scenes this week.
It was announced late in production that Nicole Kidman would join the cast and here’s a great shot from the set of her playing an Australian mother named Julia who crosses paths with Detective Griffin.
