Grown Ups 2 Swampscott Filming Features Disney Actors
A crowd formed on Humphrey Street across from the former Temple Israel Wednesday for a bus scene that included child actors.
The Grown Ups 2 filming crew set up shop across from their base camp on Humphrey Street late in the day Wednesday.
The action soon drew a crowd, many of them younger kids with their parents.
At 7 pm, Mary Doherty was near the set with her three children, ages 12, 11 and 8.
Daughter Brigid said she saw 13-year-old Cameron Boyce, from the Disney Channel show Jessie.
"He's eight months older than me," said Brigid, who got a picture of Cameron.
The scene included a number of movie extras on a Stanton School District bus, Brigid said.
Her brother said China Anne McClain, 13, a singer and actress on the show A.N.T. Farm, was among the cast in the shoot.
Kids clustered on the sidewalk, talking about who they saw and what they said. Several of the fans collected autographs and took pictures with their cell phones.
Filming moves to Marblehead over the next few days.
