On our last evening in Canada we gathered in the Fo’c’sle Tavern in Chester to meet a few other fans from Canada and the U.S. who were part of the Twitter Haven family. Rob (@HavenFDRob) came straight from set; Justine (@justinehyslop) and her husband brought Laura (@ThatisSOhaven) her mum Gail (@LaurasCoolMom) and Rachael (@havenprincess) who had just flown in! Kelly (@karicature) made it with a few other locals like Hayley from the Visitor’s Centre (@VisitChesterNS) and Davita from the Playhouse (@davitamharris) – many of whom seem to have done background work on Haven! I was really happy to meet Chad (@ChadCairns) who turned up following my Twitter announcement.

The photos are collated from the fans on Twitter. Check these and more out in the Gallery!

Then the cast arrived, one by one: Lucas Bryant, Jayne Eastwood, Eric Balfour and Adam Copeland. As Laura put it, it was ‘surreal but amazing’ to hang out, play pool and pick their brains about Haven.

Adam‘s favourite pancake topping is maple syrup. And he likes his hair short not long.

When Lucas was growing up he wanted to be either an actor or a cardiologist.

Adam said we’d get some background on Dwight in S5. He’s wanted this, particularly to know more about his family.

Emily Rose gets seasick hence no moving boats after episode 1×11

Adam talked about working with ‘Gloria’ and he actually makes her laugh!

Lucas and I talked about Nerd HQ (where the cast did a panel in 2013) – it apparently came about as Emily knew Zac Levi, and Eric too. Wouldn’t Zac be a great guest star?!

If you haven’t already check out their hilarious panel:

(NB on the video the panel starts at 23.20)

Jayne, Lucas and I discussed Comic Con. Jayne said she’d be up for it. So I asked her if she understood what Comic Con is now and she defiantly answered “No!” Hilarious!

Eric‘s attendance was short but sweet. He had told us earlier that he’d been really busy with his business ‘Electric and Rose’ meaning late night calls and understandably he was pretty tired, but still smiled for the ‘paparazzi’ and thanked the fans as we thanked him back. A decent gent, it was really nice to see him one last time before our departure.

Laurence, Rob and Lucas spent a bit playing pool – with Lucas clearing up in no time.  Apparently he learned to play when he stayed in a place with a nearby pool hall. Another one of his many talents!

Though I did take a couple of videos of the room, I later lost these with a little iphone disaster, but it mainly consisted of Jayne shouting ‘We’re having fun in Chester!’ and thanking the fans – very sweet 🙂

A few spoilers were shared but then soon forgotten with the drinks flowing. I must apologise to those who attended for my slightly wonky state – and for hogging Adam somewhat :{. I blame it on a Nova Scotian rum drink called a ‘Dark and Stormy’ I discovered that night – try it at your peril! But it was great getting to meet the other fans and hear their experiences:

Kelly got the cast to sign her amazing caricatures. “Jayne and I had a brief conversation about artwork and shared pics”.

Justine said “the party was great and the girls had a great time. Jayne was the highlight of my night as she was the most excited and delighted to meet and talk with each fan”

Rachael told me: “It was awesome. Everyone was so friendly and so kind. We talked with Lucas about bringing the vest back LOL. It was great meeting you guys from the UK.”

Rachael: “The paparazzi comment was because of all the flashes. [Lucas] was like ‘Don’t you feel like we are being paparazzied?’ It was really cute. Hence my reaction.”

Laura: “Ok so I’ll share the story that makes me sound less creepy lol.  At one point Rachael, Justine, my mom, & Kelly were encouraging me to get more pictures with Lucas.  I jokingly I said in my best Valley girl voice “Um, I have like 75 pictures of me & Lucas,”  I immediately hear him laughing from behind me.  I turned probably blushed as hell & he mimics me.  I think I said something like I keep forgetting you aren’t in Photoshop right now.  He is the most adorable man alive.

Jayne Eastwood was just as awesome..very personable and told me I was adorable.  I think we’re best friends now I’m not sure.”

Laura: “Another reason Lucas is awesome is I was really concerned my mom would miss Eric because he was shooting late & wouldn’t be on set Monday and he ended up texting him to made my mom’s trip..she went up to him and said I love you..without missing a beat he said I love you too.  Special night..special cast.”

Chad was flying the Haven flag wearing the official T-shirt. He had met the cast before as he’d worked on Haven as an extra but he was still pretty excited to meet everyone and took some great pics:

Thanks to Jackie and her team at the Fo’c’sle who helped make the party happen.


Our last morning was a little sad but I did geek out to find this pool in our hotel, Atlantica (luckily minus a shark), featured in episode 3×04; and later the Hansen House from 4×10:

After saying our goodbyes in Chester, we decided to drive the scenic ‘Lighthouse Route’ back to Halifax Airport. We passed some beautiful beaches, and Mill Cove (seen in ‘Silent Night’ episode where Nathan shoots the dome; watch out for it in S5 too!) before stopping at the famous Shore Club for a lobster lunch.

Inside the manager told us about the history of the place which has kept a vintage feel, perfect for a Haven location, inside and out. It is notably featured in episode 3×09 ‘Sarah’. On the weekends many of the crew can be found there eating lobster and listening to a live band.

Last but certainly not least we found Peggy’s Cove:

Reaching it at sunset it certainly felt magical, even with plenty of tourists milling about. The lighthouse towers against the ocean backdrop; making me wonder how they got Helena up there for episode 1×05! Getting to soak up the Nova Scotian coast there on a beautiful day seemed a fitting end to our trip.

I hope you enjoyed this fan trip series and it makes the hiatus pass a little quicker. Check out more in the Gallery, and see you later this year for all new Haven!

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to
    another platform. I have heard fantastic things about

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s
    both educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
