SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. – Filming for FOX's “Sleepy Hollow” pilot continues in North Carolina, with an appearance from Ichabod Crane.
Film crews have been working in Gastonia this week, shooting around City Hall. The scene takes place after Crane wakes up 200 years in the future.
“Ichabod has been arrested after waking up here in the present day,” Executive Producer and series co-creator Bob Orci said to The Gaston Gazette. “There’s a Rip Van Winkle element to it because he’s been asleep in a cave for 200 years. He has no idea if he’s dreaming or what’s happening.
“Obviously the things he’s saying make him seem like he’s nuts. So he’s being escorted by a detective to a psychiatrist in this scene.”
British actor Tom Mison has been tapped to play the famed character for the show.
Mison has starred in several films, including Parade's End, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, One Day and Lost in Austen.
