Set Photos From Season 3 of Showtime’s Shameless
Star Emmy Rossum, who plays Fiona Gallagher on Showtime’s Shameless series shared photos from the set. Filming is underway for season 3. Rossum described the hectic schedule filming on location in Chicago.
"Spent the week in Chicago shooting in and around the Gallagher street for Shameless. It’s always a mad dash from one location to another when we film in Chicago. The energy of the city and the sheer amount of material we shoot in 5 days (70 pages! No joke!) adds to the raw energy that is so palpable in our cast and on the show. During our Chicago shooting days, we eat on the go (burgers or pizza) standing on street corners or sitting on the pavement between camera set-ups and we change costumes in the bathrooms of local churches and sometimes people’s homes when they open their doors to us, all as 3 cameras are running around trying to get a shot before the sun goes down or it starts to rain. It’s the least glamourous [sic] filming situation I’ve ever been in and I love every minute of it. Labor day weekend will be a little break for us. We just wrapped episode 6 (season 3) so we are at the halfway mark of the season."
The Hollywood Reporter teased some details for the new season. Jake McDorman from Greek has a recurring role in the new season as Fiona’s new boss, Mike.
"McDorman, who starred on last season’s NBC comedy Are You There, Chelsea?, will play Mike, described as attractive — but in a regular-guy way. Fun, confident, relaxed, likable, playful and charismatic, he is the supervisor in a family-run business where Fiona (Emmy Rossum) works.”
Steve/Jimmy (Justin Chatwin) has moved into the Gallagher home and Fiona may feel the relationship is not what she expected. She also realizes her GED is not getting her as far as she thought. How will new character, Mike play into all this for Fiona?
Shameless’ new season starts January 13, 2013.
