WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Members of the "Monroe Militia" are powering down from their time in the spotlight.
With Revolution moving to Austin, Texas to film its second season, a small, close-knit group of extras that were cast to play militia members in Wilmington are reflecting on the times they spent on the show.
According to one of the militia members, David Pascua, the group has been dubbed 'Sgt. Sam's Militia of Background Artists', named for the production assistant in charge of the group, Samantha Marie Clark.
The group started working together on Episode 3.
Pascua said they filmed scenes at the former Sticky Fingers restaurant in Wilmington and Smith Creek Bridge in Castle Hayne.
"Over the five days of filming, a camaraderie was established and many us became friends," Pascua explained in an email to our Ashlea Kosikowski. "During that time, the weather was not only hot and humid, but basically unforgiving."
