Filming for the highly advertised ABC primetime series "Nashville" continues in Music City.
Recently Nashville's News 2 anchor John Dwyer was one of 80 extras on one of the shoots at Watermark Restaurant in the Gulch.
In the shoot, Dwyer, along with the other extras played "hip restaurant customers," while five of the main actors on the show sat nearby and discussed how their characters got their start in Music City.
During the 14-hour shoot, which paid just more than $100, Dwyer drank apple juice that was portrayed as wine and learned that when you are having a fake conversation on television, you have to speak quietly.
Another lesson learned? The director really doesn't appreciate it when the extras clang their silverware or if they step in front of the camera in front of the stars.
"Well, I ruined one of the shots because I was so into the acting, taking care of tables and taking people's orders that I forgot where the camera was and stepped right in front of the stars," server Cole Dumas said.
"Nashville" continue to film in Music City during upcoming weeks. Other recognizable locations in the show include the Blue Bird Café and the Grand Ole Opry.
The new series premieres Wednesday, October 10 at 9 p.m. on Nashville's News 2.
