According to a recent article from Kent Online, one of The Nevers film extras has been stolen. The extra in question is a pink cockatoo called Boo.
A bird was stolen when she was in Kent to film a big budget TV series produced by the team behind the Avengers and Game of Thrones. Last week KentOnline issued an appeal to help find a stolen bird, but it has emerged she is a silver screen extra.
Boo the pink cockatoo will be swinging in her cage in The Nevers, a sci-fi period drama, which will air on American TV channel HBO. The show is written by the Avengers screenwriter Joss Whedon and was being filmed in the Historic Dockyard, Chatham earlier this month.
While you may spot Boo on screen in the near future, her owners have not seen her for almost a month because she was stolen. The roseate cockatoo, which is estimated to be worth £1,000, was being kept in an air-conditioned, animal transport van in the car park at the Holiday Inn, in Maidstone Road, Chatham.
But between 9pm on Thursday, July 11 and 7.15am Friday, July 12, Boo disappeared.
Fingers crossed that Boo is returned, and no-one else goes missing.
It was announced the other day that Tom Riley had joined the cast of The Nevers, created by Joss Whedon, as Augustus Bidlow. The series, described as a sort of steam punk drama by Boo's owner, started filming on 4th July 2019.
