I have not seen 1 single second of filming for the ABC smash hit "Once Upon A Time" since they filmed scenes for the pilot in downtown Vancouver more than 7 months ago. http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/1/post/2011/03/jennifer-morrison-filming-scenes-for-abc-tv-pilot-once-upon-a-time.html
At that time it was an unproven pilot & most people didnt think much of it in the local celebrity spotting circles. Now, it has become a massive hit for ABC & looks headed to a 2nd season barring some type of curse by the Evil Queen.
Since then, finding the fairy tale based show has been nearly impossible because they dont need the downtown core for their show & I rarely venture past the dt area to find filming. The show is set in a small town in Maine. The show is filmed in smaller cities around the area like North Vancouver, Ft. Langley & Steveston, a small tourist nook at the far southwest corner of Richmond. Mostly known for its fishing industry, Steveston is very welcoming of the film industry & is used often by productions, and this year its primary tennants have been the cast & crew of Once Upon A Time.
So earlier this week a friend & I went out there determined to see something. We got a late start on Monday & got out there a little late to catch scenes out on the beach, as we showed up, I went out there to see where they were filming only to find the set being torn down & Jennifer Morrison & Jared Gilmore strolling by me back to the trailers.
It was exceptionally windy on this day & the cast & crew alike were doing all they could to stay warm, and so were we. We looked around & found their next location shortly after. It was in a private dock area and luckily, had a small area right where the scene was being shot to shoot pics of them filming it thru a fence about 200 feet away.
The scenes included Jennifer Morrison's character Emma Swan showing up in a Sheriffs car to interact with Jared Gilmore's character Henry. I find it interesting that Ms. Swan is driving the Sheriff car. In the last episode we see her get hired as a deputy, now driving the sheriffs car?? The scene itself I
Later on scenes were done with them & another man who my friend originally thought was Jamie Dornan, the sherriff. I have looked at those photos (sorry, didnt have them in time to edit for this blog...maybe later on?) since then & am not too sure, will have to watch a few scenes with him over again to be 100%, but my first look at them on a big screen has me uncertain.
Below is a few photos from that scene.
