The majority of the cast from the ABC rookie show "Once Upon A Time" went down to the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con this weekend.
In total, Josh Dallas, Robert Carlyle, Jennifer Morrison, Lana Parrilla & Ginnifer Goodwin went to the event that has become a major promotion tool for TV & movies alike.
On the way to SDCC
We only managed to catch Lana Parrilla on the way down to SDCC. Most of the cast left on a super early flight, so we missed most of them, but Parrilla left later in the day & fortunately, we were there to get her. She told us shes loved playing her role on the show so far & that she hoped we would really love the show. She willingly signed whatever was asked and personalized all of them.
A couple of the hounds lucked out and got Robert Carlyle, Ginnifer Goodwin & Josh Dallas upon returning. I unfortunately was not there for that venture. Later however, Lana Parrilla came thru while I was there, but no one approached her, so I didnt want to bug her just to take a photo.
Last arrival of the evening for the OUAT cast was Jennifer Morrison. JMo instantly saw the row of autograph hounds waiting along the long railed off area inside the airport & didnt even hesitate. Came right over & signed anything she was asked to sign. She was on the flight with a cast member from Eureka, Sally Richardson-Whitfield & Sally asked Jennifer if she was tweeting about heading to Vancouver, which Jen said "no...wait, I think I did". She said she enjoyed comic-con & has so far enjoyed filming. When someone said they really were disappointed she was written off How I Met Your Mother she replied "so was I, it was my favorite job", but that she understood the role was only temporary anyways. Not long after, she was done & on her way.
This weekend a variety of shows & movies had panels at the San Diego Comic Con. That included ventures from Vancouver. Mostly our TV shows.
I will have more detailed blogs later this week, which will include any interesting comments they had to say on any topics of discussion.
Although I did miss several mmembers of Once Upon A Time (ABC) & Sanctuary, I did manage to nab a few of the other stars on their way out.
Saw Fringe (FOX) stars John Noble (didnt get any pics of sadly), Jasika Nicole & Anna Torv as they went on their way out of town.
From The Secret Circle (The CW) we saw Thomas Dekker, Brittany Robertson, Phoebe Tonkin, Natasha Henstridge & Adam Harrington
From Supernatural (CW) we saw Jim Beaver (didnt get any photos), Misha Collins, Jensen Ackles, and Genevieve & Jared Padalecki.
We did manage to snag 1 Once Upon A Time star, as Lana Parrilla made her way thru.
Only non-TV star we nabbed on her way down to SDCC was Grindhouse & Scream star Rose McGowan.
Check back after Monday for more detailed blogs on who we saw, with evne more photos.
The other night I caught a scene being shot for a new TV Pilot for ABC called "Once Upon A Time".
The series stars Jennifer Morrison ("House", "How I Met Your Mother" & "Bringing Ashley Home"), Ginnifer Goodwin ("Big Love" & "Walk The Line"), Robert Carlyle ("Stargate Universe" & "Trainspotting" ), Lana Parilla ("24", "Boomtown", "Spin City"), Josh Dallas ("Thor" & "The Descent 2") & Raphael Sbarge ("The Guardian" & "prison Break").
The show is based on the premised that all the fairy tales you have heard of, actually are real.
On this particular day I caught Jennifer Morrison portraying her character "Anna" driving around with a young boy who I only heard the name "Kevin" for.( Not sure anymore details of who it is, anyone with a good knowledge of local young actors...feel free to let me know & I will revise this...UPDATE - It is Jared Gilmore). The scene takes place in Massachusets. Earlier in the day I was at another location for them, but was uunable to see what the scene was since it was covered with large black screens...but it entailed "Anna" being in a high end restaurant with dozens of well dressed extras.
So thats the 1st report from the new ABC TV Pilot "Once Upon A Time".
I occasionally argue with inanimate objects, but I usually win. So its all good.
