Kyle, who plays baseball for Bel Air High, said he likes the technical aspects of the show.

"I think it's pretty exciting just seeing how they fix everything, make you look good to entertain the audience," he said.

Making a whole scene of people when just a couple were used in filming and other technicalities is interesting.

"What they can do with technology these days is crazy," he said.

For "House of Cards," the two spent two long days filming their scenes, mostly singing "Auld Lang Syne" at a New Year's party. They don't have any lines other than the singing.

"It was long days, but it was really fun, because the people there were really nice," Kirsten said.

Both say they loved their roles.

"I thought it was a great experience. All the people were nice," Kyle said. "When you walking in there they made you feel like you were part of the family. It was so welcoming and friendly."

They both liked Spacey, and bowled with him at a cast party. Kyle was impressed that Spacey remembered them the next time he saw them.

"It was just nice to see he remembered us and he referred to us as 'The Bowling Team,'" Kyle said.

Location, location, location

Ruffin grew up in Baltimore and moved to Edgewood, where he bought a condo, in 2008, after wrapping up work on "The Wire," the HBO crime drama based and filmed in Baltimore.

He's been in the film business for 14 years. He started by doing security, then worked his way through the production ranks and has finally found something the likes to do and something he says he's good at.

"The personality I have is good to being a location guy. That's what I've been good at. So far I've been working a lot so I must be good at it," Ruffin said. "I found my calling."

As assistant location manager, Ruffin and his staff are responsible for the "logistics of the movie."

"Without me and my department, the only thing they have is a script and actors," he said.

His department needs to figure out where they'll shoot, what they'll shoot and when, when people can enter and leave an area, getting security – you name, he does it.

"House of Cards," he said, has been "one of the most rewarding shows I have worked on."

"I get a big rewarding feeling out of seeing the city I grew up made into a 13-episode TV show. And make [Washington] D.C. come alive in Baltimore," he said "And I get to work with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, these people are awesome at their craft."

Havre de Grace episode

As for Havre de Grace, St. John Street and North Washington Street in the city's will be the most obvious to local viewers, Ruffin said Wednesday They're the main streets of Gaffney, population 13,126.

During the shooting, the crew hung out a large sign that said "Welcome to Gaffney" at the crossroads of Washington Street and Congress Avenue. Another sign, at St. John and Green streets, directed traffic to the "South Carolina Route 120."

Ruffin said the Havre de Grace episode, filmed early last June, was "his baby."

He spent hours searching for just the right places to film.

"Havre de Grace is the spitting image of Gaffney, South Carolina," Ruffin said.

At one point, Harford County Executive David Craig's house on Congress Avenue was going to double as the house of the South Carolina governor, but Ruffin said they ultimately chose another house.

Besides filming at a few other Havre de Grace homes, crews shot a car accident scene on Route 155 at the Hopkins Farm near Level.

Ruffin said everyone was great to work with in Havre de Grace, including Mayor Wayne Dougherty, who got to meet Spacey.
