Title: The grounds surrounding the set

[I'm hoping Keira comes along... ;) ]
Living on a movie always had it's ups and downs, but if it was up to Zac he would stay in a hotel. However, you always had to be ready at a moment's notice and living so close made this possible. It didn't take him long to settle down, he was easy-going like that and he was cool with anything as long as it was clean and had running water. Electric he could do without, not that he had to worry about that, but it's just a way of describing how easy it was for him to fit in. The bed was comfortable enough and the bathroom area was a good size. Everything a man could possibly need was in here. The living room area even had a mini bar, which was sweet and there was enough closet space, too. The best thing about it was the woodland behind the cabin that gave off a sense of serenity and calm away from the madness of the stage rooms and set technicalities. Zac was glad he had somewhere to take his dog, Panda,
for walks so that they could both stretch there legs. In fact, he would do that now. They set out

She'd just barely got settled into the on-set housing they'd provided for the main cast and it was all she could do not to run out of the one room cabin. Being confined wasn't exactly her forte, especially when the nature that lay just beyond the door was so inviting. So after pulling on a well worn in pair of jeans, an oversized striped shirt and her favorite boots
she headed outside to explore. She was only a few minutes into the walk when she spotted movement in the short distance ahead of her. She could just make out the back of a man and then a blur of white that became clearer as it came charging right at her. A genuinely amused laugh escaped her when the blur came into focus and she saw that it was a beautiful white puppy, his tail wagging ferociously. Squatting down a bit she let the energetic ball of fluff jump onto her lap but unfortunately her balance was for shit and she toppled back onto her ass. "Well aren't you friendly? And absolu'ely gorgeous. Yes you are, yes you are."

[That was a super cute post! =D]
Panda hung around the new person for a little while, pining to be fussed. He was quite an insatiable dog where that was concerned. His owner would always give him a lot of attention, so Panda expected it of everybody. He even lay on his back with his paws up wanting his stomach scratched.
Zachary wasn’t far away and he had been texting when Panda wondered off. Finally, when he eventually sent the message he looked around for Panda, but when he couldn’t see him, he whistled and wondered around himself. Panda ignored the whistle, because he was quite a naughty dog like that. He was too interested in this new person.
Finally Zachary spotted the dog with a lady and he sauntered over. Hey, I whistled you... he said to the dog. Zac came closer and noticed that the woman was none other than Keira Knightley herself. A smile shone on his face, Well, this is nice, he said. Hi, I’m Zac and this crazy, hyperactive animal is Panda.

[Aww spanks! And sorry it took me so long to respond :blink: ]
She looked up again when she heard a man's voice and she realized the gentleman from a distance had made his way over to claim his rambunctious puppy. "Oh Ah'm sorreh, guess I haven't been trained properly." She chuckled, knowing he'd been referring to the dog when he'd made the comment but it was in her nature to tease. By now she'd deducted that this was Zac, even before he offered her his name and she figured her co-star may as well get used to her brand of humor now. "Well how d'yah do Mr. Panda." She chuckled, receiving a wet kiss on the cheek from the animal as a response. "A'll take tha' as good." Her lips curved up once more and she brought her gaze back to Zac as she dusted off the side of her jeans, though she still remained seated amongst the leaves. "Lovely to finally meet you Zac, Ah'm Keira..." So with her own introduction in place she extended her hand out and up towards him. "Would you mind helping me up a bit?"

[Lol, a couple of days is nothing, haha]
As Zac joined the scene the puppy trotted happily between the two humans, fussing between them, trying to get as much attention as possible.
Certainly, Zac meanwhile took Keira’s hand and then pulled her up onto her feet. After that he crouched and hooked the lead onto Panda’s collar. Being the producer of the movie Zac had had the privilege to view the whole script of the movie so he knew what was to happen and he released that it was a good deal to first get to know the woman you may have to do a sex scene with later on! One thing he noticed and liked already was that he adored her accent! He chuckled after hearing her speak. There was something endearing in her way of saying certain words. I’m honoured to meet you, actually. he said, patting Panda. Thanks, Panda for introducing me to Ms. Knightley. Zac chuckled. As producer I’m inclined to ask you what you think of the script... What d’you think? If there’s stuff you’re not, you know, happy with I can get them altered? He paused; why did he have to get straight to work? Wasn’t it time to chill out, first? We start tomorrow, you know?

[Teehee, sweet then, but I'll still try to be a bit more on top of things.]
She smiled graciously when his palm slid against hers, letting out a small grunt as he pulled her back up to a standing position. "Thank you sir." Her hand lingered in his for a moment as they stood there with the puppy dancing around their feet. "Likewise. Ah've been wonderin' when Ah'd finally get t'cross paths with the man who wants to kill me and kiss me." She chuckled finally releasing her hand from his when he went to pat Panda's head. It was endearing really the way he interacted with the dog, she loved seeing that side to a man. "Oh, um, no, not a'tall, Ah love it. It's the biggest part of the reason Ah took the movie. Ah mean Ah love getting t'sink my teeth into a good strong female and the way she's written is just, well Ah love it. Plus it's always a bit fun when Ah get t'handle a gun and stand up t'the boys." She smiled again, her brown eyes sparkling a bit mischievously before nodding to his other question. "Ah do. Our first table reading righ'? And wardrobe and all that? Ah'm quite looking forward to it actually."

[Me too, lol. And I think we have an assassin who, after Zac's character falls for Keira's character, will have to kill Zac! Now that it seems "sorted"... lol]
“Sir”? Zac chuckled. No one ever called him sir, mostly because he wouldn’t allow it and it was funny to hear it from someone, someone who happened to be Keira Knightley! The plot certainly has an unexpected twist... he agreed and paused to listen to her, chuckling again when she remarked on being able to stand up to the boys. On this he said, But you know, you should just do that anyway. Most of your films, that I’ve seen you in, you’ve stood up to the boys and even become a guy.... He didn’t have to elaborate. To Zac, Keira was a symbol of feminism at its best even in just her roles, which meant that she was going to be a perfect candidate for this story. But, he told himself enough flattery and work nonsense, because there was always time for that tomorrow. What he wanted was to get to know her first before having to pretend to fire gunshots and threaten her with her life! Thinking about this, he smiled, So can I get you a coffee before I have to impose danger on your life?

[I'm finally back!!! Woo Hoo!!!]
Her lips curved into a soft, humbled sort of smile when he gave her a fair amount of praise for the roles she tended to take. She supposed it was in her nature to be drawn to strong female characters, her mother had been one, and she liked to think that she'd inherited that from her. Broken from her reverie though she nodded enthusiastically when he offered coffee, chuckling a little at the way he teased her in the same manner she had him. "Ah think it's the only gentlemanly thing t'do considering." She grinned, bending to give the puppy one last scratch behind the ears before sliding her hands into the pockets of her jeans. "Lead the way love."

[shall we skip ahead to the scene threads?]
Keira Knightley - March 10, 2010 10:08 PM (GMT)
[For sure. We'll just say they had an amazing conversation over coffee, really hit it off and Keira can see this being the beginning of a beautiful friendship haha.]
