My 2nd day of filming started off seeing 2 people I hadnt seen in awhile, Lana Parrilla (Mayor Regina/Evil Queen) & Robert Carlyle (Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin).
The scene involved Mr. Gold walking across the street to where Regina was standing. They exchange a breif dialogue & then Mr. Gold goes on his way as Regina stares at himf rom behind for a lengthy time.
Later in the day I saw more scenes with Mr. Gold, which will come up in my next blog.... along with a nice close up look at his cane.
In this blog, I want to make note of how awesome the cast has been with fans & professional photographers & autograph hounds alike. I saw each member on the 2nd day (Carlyle, Parrilla, Goodwin & Dallas) all stop to take photos with fans who literally were walking right thru the set (during breaks obviously) as well as their willingness to sign for me. The crew has been, not withstanding a couple individual cases of "I Wanna be a noticed-itis" that were nothing more than small nuisances, terrific. They rarely object to fans or photographers being around long as you give them a little room to work when they need it (and still more often than not give you space to see the scenes being shot). It is terrific to see this appreciation. Only other set I have ever had this level (again with the exception of 1 or 2 rogue crew members) acceptance has been on the Fringe set. Usually, theres 4-5 crew members that feel its their lifes mission to alienate fans & photographers on sets, unaware what harm they are actually doing to a show. This show is (so far) understanding of the fans curiosity & the photogs/hounds desire for a result & dont purposely try to step on toes... too often.
Below is a few pics from the scenes with Parrilla and Carlyle, as well as a few of them just hanging around waiting.
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
