Grimm's Reggie Lee Weighs In on His Character's 'Primal,' Brave Wu World

The Grimm producers couldn’t have conjured better conditions for a location shoot if they’d had Adalind’s magic hat and all seven keys at their disposal.

It’s mid-February, and the recently renewed NBC drama is filming part of Season 5, Episode 18 at a park in Portland, Ore. A light fog settles in the early evening, making everything seem just a little more otherworldly than normal. On a paved path near a jungle gym, series star Reggie Lee stands very close to someone who looks an awful lot like… series star Reggie Lee — only the latter is sporting much more facial hair and a seriously Cro-Magnonesque brow.

“I didn’t think I would ever be here,” Lee tells a group of reporters after posing for photos with Roel Failma, his stunt double for the episode. (While Grimm actors generally shift into their Wesen faces via CGI, their stand-ins wear special effects make-up, which looks better on camera in fight scenes.) “I always thought I was the human that was safe — I mean, ‘safe’ being a relative term in Grimm.”

In case you need a quick catch-up: Last week, we learned that lycanthropes are Blutbads suffering from a virus, and they’re the basis for the modern werewolf myth. One of the beasts scratched Lee’s Sgt. Wu during a chase; since then, he’s experienced increasingly alarming symptoms that make it seem like he’s turning into something other than human.
