Once Upon A Time filming the Peter Pan & Mr. Gold Death scene for episode 311 - w/ Belle & Neal watching
In the mid-season finale for the ABC fantasy drama Once Upon A Time, we saw a massive shocker, Rumplestiltskin kills himself along with his father aka - Peter Pan, to save the people of Storybrooke from Pans curse.
What this means for the character Robert Carlyle portrays is still uncertain. I suspect he'll be back after a few episodes away (not insider knowledge, just my personal feeling), but for now it is RIP Mr. Gold/Rumple.
At the time they filmed the scene in which he stabs Peter Pan thru the back & in turn himself too, I didnt know he was killing himself along with Pan, I just saw him shove the knife into Pan (aka - Robbie Kay ) and assumed he was killing him.
I got to the set late on this day, and missed the earlier scenes with Regina out in the middle of the street. By the time I got there, they were filming the scene below from the angle of just the left side of the group as it was just Michael Raymond-James as Baelfire & Emilie de Ravin as Belle who were also on set with Robert & Robbie.
Something that has been an issue in season 3 has been how unpleasant the rude & unprofessional new security team has been. Instead of the old team they had, who although at times frustrated some regulars, would at least reason with the regulars & minimize the efforts some of us would go to to take shots. This new team (btw- they got FIVE guys to do the job that 2 were doing last year....and not very well lol) thinks heavy handed aggressiveness will work...well, it doesnt, all it does is drive us to be more creative in doing what we do.... for example, I stood 2 blocks away to get photos they didnt want me getting from the other side of the set (which had a LOT more stuff in the way & it would have been in their best interests to just let people shoot from there.....then maybe the plethora of spoiler pics some posted on twitter earlier wouldnt have come up so much). But they will learn eventually....or maybe they wont? In either case, people will get their shots, they just might be more creative in making it happen.
Because of my position (2 blocks away) you can see some of my photos are pretty grainy & I am sorry if you feel disappointed in these FREE photos I offer you. For those appreciative of whatever is offered, here it, photos from my vantage point of Pan & Rumple meeting their fates.
Once Upon A Time season 3 has gone on their Winter Hiatus & returns March 9, 2014 (later than usual in an effort to avoid competing with the Olympics) on ABC.
THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR AN EPISODE OF SEASON 3 "ONCE UPON A TIME". Do not read the blog post if you want to avoid those minor spoilers. The photos contain no notable spoiler.
Season 3 of the ABC fantasy drama "Once Upon A Time" has rarely been seen around this year by the locals. With most of their production now in studio for the Neverland scenes, finding the cast on location has proved to be a challenge for most.
So no shock, yesterday was my 1st venture to a OUAT set this season. It was in New Westminster at the house used for Regina.
This particular set of scenes involved Dr. Archie Hopper (Raphael Sbarge), Regina Mills (Lana Parrilla) & a guest star who I cant name...because no one knows the name outside of the crew.
I know what the scenes entailed somewhat, but cant go into too much detail. Just to say, it is a flashback scene involving the pair & baby Henry.
There was nothing to see of the actual filming, unless you were there bright & early when they did a short scene of Archie walking to/away from the front door. The rest was all interior.
We did however catch up to both stars outside. Raphael, on his lunch break, stopped to sign for the 7-10 fans that were there before heading back inside to do more work. Lana, after her filming concluded around 7 PM met all the fans, which by then was close to a dozen, and signed autographs & took photos.
Below is a few photos from last night.
I will have a few more photos of non-location OUAT interactions to post soon. Included in there will be some Jennifer Morrison pics from recently, and some leftover forgotten about pics from last season of Jamie Chung (Mulan) & Sarah Bolger (Princess Aurora) & a few from a friend who was at this past summers San Diego Comic-Con.
Once Upon A Time season 3 is currently airing Sunday nights on ABC & CTV.
This past weekend the cast for the ABC fantasy hit "Once Upon A Time" headed down to San Diego for their 3rd Comic-Con.
I managed to catch the cast either going down, or returning this year.
While I was glad to see Robert Carlyle was back to being the happy to see us Bobby I remember from season 1 (he had soured a lot in S2 & I was afraid what S3 might bring) I was quite displeased to see the already unfriendly Emilie deRavin, who at least in the past would begrudgingly stop to sign if you could catch up to her speed walking self, now just outright refuses, even when she has to wait 45 seconds for her driver.
The rest of the cast was great going to & returning from Comic-Con. The casts super-couple Josh Dallas & Ginnifer Goodwin chatted with us & other fans going there & returning. Jennifer Morrison donned her trademark ball cap pulled down low to avoid being seen, but still happily signed & chatted when she was recognized. We caught Lana Parrilla heading down to SDCC, but missed her returning. While we managed to get both Colin O'Donoghue & Michael Raymond-James going to & returning.
Most of the cast told us how they loved doing these events, but one who I wont name, did state that they were not too pleased to be doing it, it isn't their thing, but is doing it because its expected. I admire that honesty, because you know theres dozens of others that were sent to San Diego to promote things that also didnt want to, but lie & say "oh yeah, I love doing that".
Another person we saw coming in while we were there, but didnt know at the time who it was, Meta Golding (who will be in the next Hunger Games Movie) who is believed to be a newcomer to the cast, I have yet to learn what role she is getting. If anyone knows, please feel free to update me.
Here are the photos of the cast interacting with the fans as they depart & return from the SDCC this past weekend.
Occasionally, if you are on your way thru an airport, look around at the people you see there. It might be someone famous.
While seeing the OUAT cast in YVR is not a rarity, they did become much less common this season for me. But here is a handful of the encounters I had with them.
Mostly Ginnifer Goodwin & Josh Dallas, Jennifer Morrison or Lana Parrilla. Occasionally I saw other cast members, like Jorge Garcia, Sarah Bolger or Michael Raymond-James as well.
I dont recall which weeks these photos are from. Some of them have been in my blog section for a few months. But here is an assortment of pics of them when they came thru & how great they have been at interacting with the occasional fans & regulars that might see them.
Once Upon A Time films a scene for the finale of season 2 with Henry, Emma, Mr. Gold, David, Mary & Granny.
This blog post contains possible spoilers for "Once Upon A Time" season 2 finale episode. If you dont want to know anything about this episode, DO NOT read the article or view the photos.
Late last week I made the trek out to Steveston to catch some filming of the ABC hit "Once Upon A Time" as they were working on the season finale right now.
When I got there, I found them not in downtown Steveston as I assumed they would be, but out at Garry Point Park, a couple blocks west of there.
Cleverly wedged in amongst a pile of trees in a little garden, they filmed a couple scenes there, including the 1 I managed to get a few pics of.
In this particular scene I saw Henry (Jared Gilmore) playing on a rope while Mr. Gold (Robert Carlyle) watched. Off camera Emma (Jennifer Morrison ), David (Josh Dallas) & Mary (Ginnifer Goodwin) waited for their cues.
Because of the conveniently placed garden rocks & trees, you lose the group for a few seconds, before eventually catching Emma & Henry talking infront of a rock, leading to Henry tightly hugging Emma in what appeared to be a very saddening moment as both characters showed sadness on their faces.
Also in the scene was Beverly Elliot...somewhere. I never saw her in the scene, but heard them calling out her cue. I saw at the set, so I know she was there, just didnt see her in the scene.
During the day, several of the stars met with fans, including Jared Gilmore, Josh Dallas, Robert Carlyle & Beverly Elliott. As well Ginnifer Goodwin & Josh Dallas stopped for a couple fans during a short break at the food tent, despite being needed back at set immediately.
Once Upon A Time wraps season 2 production April 6th.

Once Upon A Time films scenes for ep 219 with Emma & Regina talking, as well as Regina, Mr. Gold talking while Henry & Neal play. One big happy family?
THIS BLOG IS ABOUT FILMING FOR EPISODE 219 OF "ONCE UPON A TIME" The post containts photos of filming, as well as scene description & speculation.
IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW/SEE ANYTHING PRIOR TO THE EPISODE AIRING.... DO NOT CONTINUE READING OR VIEWING THE PHOTOS!
Last week I made the trek out to Steveston to see the ABC hit fantasy show"Once Upon A Time" do a bit of filming.
Since the last time I saw them, in downtown Vancouver a month or so ago, some big reveals have happened...mainly that Neal/Baelfire is Henry's father, and that Rumplestiltskin/Mr.Gold is his father, making Henry's Golds grandson.... and you thought YOUR family had issues.
This particular day I saw 2 scenes being shot.
The 1st had Robert Carlyle (Gold) & Lana Parrilla (Regina) walking along a path thru a fence in the background as Jared Gilmore (Henry) had a little play battle with wooden swords with his newfound dad Michael Raymond-James (Neal). So it looks like the Gold-Cassidy-Swan-Mills family is seemingly doing fine... although, no Emma hanging around during the boys playtime. Is there a rift between her & Henry after he found out she lied to him? Or is this simply some father/son bonding time as his grandpa & adopted mom chat in the background? Only time will tell.
There was a lot of playing around leading up to the scene, which was shot in 3 or 4 parts. In a couple takes Jared clipped Michael on his hand with the wooden swords hard enough that he went running away shaking off the hit.
Later in the day, they moved over to a pier, where they did a scene with Lana Parrilla & Jennifer Morrison (Emma) sitting on a bench, as Emma was holding the fairytale book of Henry's.
I also took a few photos of the prop carps & signs, most notably for me, the 1983 computer ad on a bus stop. A left over from when they filmed the flashback episode that is coming up soon...or were they doing another flashback scene in this episode?
So here is the photos from that day. Enjoy. This episode will be #19 of season 2.
Once Upon A Time films some scenes for Season 2 episode 18 - with a returning character of note...and maybe a new 1.
THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS A DESCRIPTION & PHOTOS OF A SCENE SHOT FOR ABC PROGRAM "ONCE UPON A TIME" EPISODE 218. This post MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS. If you do not want to see or read anything of the episode prior to it being released, DO NOT READ THE ARTICLE OR VIEW THE PHOTOS.
This past Wednesday the ABC hit fantasy drama "Once Upon A Time" did some filming in the downtown core. The second time in a a couple of months. This time, filming was taking place in the same area where they were last time, when I caight Emma, Mr. Gold, Henry & Neal doing scenes on the streets of Gastown, subbing in for the SoHo district of New York City.
This time, there was a couple interesting things I took away from the shoot.
First. The 1 that everyone has asked me about since I announced it, (and gossip site EW.Com was nice enough to take & run with... ) wait, I'm getting sidetracked by a rant, what was it I was supposed to be talking about???
Oh, the big news.... Eion Bailey was on set reprising his role of the motorcycle riding August W. Booth. The man we know as Pinocchio was in his non-wooden state having a conversation with Neal Cassidy ( Michael Raymond James ) before he rides off on his motorcycle on the streets of New York City. I must thank a local set observer who clued me into Eion being there, as I wouldnt have noticed him right away because of the angle & set up of the cameras when I got there. Only after he told me he was there did I put in an effort to get a better view point.
The second. In the latter part of the scene, there was a mystery woman in orange who has a scene where she runs into (literally) Neal. At 1st, I just thought she was a background character, then as she did take after take after take & was getting the same treatment as the other 2 main characters in the scenes, I started realizing, this is a person who will have a role of note in the episode.
Doing some google work, I am inclined to believe its Sonequa Martin-Green, who had been cast several weeks ago as a "mystery character" named "Tamara". I havent been able to 100% verify it is her, but the resemblance to her is considerable enough, till I am told differently... I think this is the girl who will be playing "Tamara". This mystery characters scene included her walking along the streets of SoHo & quite literally running into Neal as he turns around to walk away from his talk with August and ends up bumping into her and spilling her coffee all over her, causing them to stop and chat for a few moments.
After that, they wrapped that location & moved on & I headed home.
So anyways, there you have it. August is back. Sonequa Martin-Green MIGHT be this scene... and the streets of New York City are still being played at times by the capable Gastown. Enjoy some of the pics below....
