In early October I caught up with Once Upon A Time in downtown Vancouver shooting a scene for a season 4 episode (I Believe ep 8, but could have been for 7 or 9... its been so long I forgot what ep they were on then)
The scene entailed Elizabeth Mitchell in full Snow Queen garb showing up thru a mystery door in the middle of a major metropolis (I suspect NYC) in the 1980s. Background people were supplied with a variety of 1980s style clothes and possessions such as walkmans & brick cell phones. Of course solidifying the 1980s theme.... the TRON poster (Eddie Kitsis & Adam Horowitz wrote the 2010 version) cleverly placed behind where they were shooting.
Once Upon A Time has nominations in several 2014 Best Of TV Awards categories which voting has begun on here.
Once Upon A Time can be seen Sunday nights on ABC in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.
Once Upon A Time shoots scenes for episode 404 with Elizabeth Mitchell, Jennifer Morrison and Jared Gilmore in Steveston
THIS BLOG POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 404 OF ONCE UPON A TIME. Do not continue reading, or viewing the photos if you do not want to see or read anything about the episode prior to its airing.
(PS - sorry, if links dont work in this blog post. Every time I made an edit to this blog all the links would vanish... so I dont know if they will work or not. Guess scroll over them and see if a link shows itself? Theres been a LOT of problems with Weebly the last week or 2 since they changed their system... hopefully this is a temporary glitch).
I know it seems like I have already had 50 Once Upon A Time season 4 set reports already... but really its only been like 7. Maybe the fact this is for episode 404 is why it seems like so many.
I caught OUAT filming scenes for this episode in Steveston a couple months ago and decided I should start getting these up faster (I was overwhelmed with so many sets from the earlier shoots, and preparing for my annual trip to Toronto that a LOT of blogs got pushed back...and I am just getting caught up now).
So there wont be a lot of description to this than to say it had a scene where Elizabeth Mitchell as the Ice/Snow Queen (heard it both ways) is hurrying thru the side streets of Storybrooke with Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan in hot pursuit with her gun out. This also of course is where that pic of Jennifer with her hair in every direction was from that Jen liked so much she tweeted it shortly after I had posted it on twitter myself. More random than that had to be seeing Jen and her stand in and stunt double, along with Elizabeth and her double all at the same time.
At some point, scenes were also shot with Jared Gilmore as Henry Mills, but I never actually SAW what his scenes entailed since the absurdly fan unfriendly production had people shoved back, behind a side street so that NO PART of the scene was visible to them... a tactic they have gotten all too familiar with trying to do every shot in Steveston now. They really do act like they own the town.
Anyways.... here are pics from this shoot... I have some night scene shots from this day as well with a few different actors coming soon as well.
You can see the rest of my OUAT blog posts of course at the link on the left hand side titled Once Upon A Time Blog.
Once Upon A Time season 4 is on ABC in the U.S. every Sunday and on CTV in Canada.
THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR EPISODES 401,403 AND 404 OF "ONCE UPON A TIME". If you do not want to read or see possible spoilers from those episodes prior to their airing...please do not continue.
The 4th season of the hit ABC fantasy drama "Once Upon A Time" premieres tomorrow night on ABC.
This season is going to feature a 9 episode story arc centred around the hit Disney billion dollar movie "Frozen".
They have cast several characters from the movie for this story arc, and I was the 1st person to post photos of Elizabeth Mitchell on set, and the 1st to post a pic of Georgina Haig filming a scene back when they filmed in Steveston a couple months ago. Also cast in the arc are Elizabeth Lail as Anna and Scott Michael Foster as Kristoff.
Georgina Haig, formerly from "Fringe" has been cast as Queen Elsa. She did scenes throughout a 2 day shoot with Colin O'Donoghue as Captain Hook & Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, but for the mostpart did just solo scenes. Some of the other scenes shot over the 2 days were reactionary scenes to the arrival of the Elsa character, including some with Faustino Di Bauda, Lee Arenberg and Josh Dallas.
Georgina did 1 night shoot scene where we see her at Mr. Gold's pawn shop. What could she be looking for in there? That will be a mystery we wont know the answer to till the season begins.
I caught up with Georgina twice over the 2 day shoot. The 1st time as she was leaving the set earlier in the day on day 1. She sat in her transportation vehicle & willingly signed for the 1/2 dozen people there before being Driven off. The second time was after the end of day 2. I called out to her as she prepared to leave set after shooting her night scene. She did not hesitate to come over to the couple dozen fans still waiting around at 1:30 AMish She signed autographs, and took a couple photos with fans in her Elsa dress (partially covered by a jacket).
A few weeks later, back in Steveston, the arrival of another Frozen character was seen as Elizabeth Mitchell shot scenes. Her character is The Snow Queen, who we first see filming scenes as the proprietor of a sundae shop called "Any Given Sundae" while Lee Arenberg, Beverley Elliott and Raphael Sbarge go storming by her. My next trip out to Steveston a week later after seeing her dressed as a shop owner, we see her, in full Snow Queen garb being chased thru the streets and alleys of Storybrooke by the towns Sheriff, and former bounty hunter Emma.
Once Upon A Time will run with the Frozen theme for 9 episodes to start season 4, then it will be gone. The 1st of these episodes airs tomorrow night September 28, 2014 on ABC in the U.S. and on CTV in Canada.

As with all my blog posts. Feel free to use the photos elsewhere, long as you DO NOT remove the watermarks and credit back to this site. I watermarked the night scene pics a bit harsher than others because the last time I had Captain Swan pics of note... a large handful of fans disrespected the faint watermarks I usually use, and removed them and re-posted them as their own content.... which resulted in 54 DMCA take down notices issued to 5 sites. So now those pics will be treated with a bit thicker watermark. Blame them.
