It was a couple weeks before we had the Dante shoot scheduled. In that time, the snow finally completely melted and it suddenly became nice out. Not hot, but nice enough to want to walk around Boston all night. We planned to shoot at sunset. And I couldn’t resist getting Meg to cast Lex, because I knew he’d be amazing, of course. Really though, I mostly wanted an excuse to see him walk around Boston looking like a Roman. Yes, we got a lot of “hey it’s Jesus!” shout outs. Even I couldn’t resist. It was the right time of year after all.
Dante is the main character of the Inferno. Meg wanted to capture him as he might have been before he met Virgil, before he entered the gate of Hell. So, kind of lost, his toga a little worn from being attacked by ferocious beasts.
