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 scenes for ep 219 with Emma & Regina talking, as well as Regina, Mr. Gold talking while Henry & Neal play. One big happy family?

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.

Back in July I caught Once Upon A Time filming in downtown Storybrooke (aka - Steveston, BC) for the start of season 2 of OUAT.
I have been told that they were filming episode 2 at the time, even though it was 1 of the 1st days of filming...so it COULD be from the Premiere, or episode 2.
The scenes all were at Mr. Golds.
1st was Regina (Lana Parrilla) in Mr. Golds (Robert Carlyle) pawn shop.
Later scenes with David Nolan (Josh Dallas) going into Mr. Golds were filmed.
It was all interiors, so there was very little to be seen from a filming aspect. Infact I spent most of the time in 2 of my favorite eating places there. Dave's Fish & Chips and Sarahs Ice Cream Parlour, both of which are on each side of Mr. Golds shop conveniently.
All the cast that were there came over & interacted with the fans at 1 point or another. The pics provided are from those interactions.... including 1 where Josh Dallas meets a fans wiener dog, Emma. Josh, without hesitating responds to the fan by saying 'Thats not my daughter" (referring to Prince Charmings daughter on the show, also named Emma).
Another post with more filming from that week & a bit more info on Storybrooke is coming up soon,
A few weeks ago the cast of the hit ABC drama "Once Upon A Time" headed down to San Diego for the 2012 Comic-Con.
While I didnt see all the cast that made the trek, I did see some.
Most notably, the morning of their departures, we saw Josh Dallas (Prince Charming/David Nolan) and his co-star Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White/Mary Margaret Blanchard) arriving together. Of course, since the couple have left Storrybrooke (Vancouver area) the U.S. media have outed them as off screen sweethearts as well as on screen, a fact most of the locals here knew but never discussed publicly.
While they were chatting with myself & 1 of the guys from http://outlaw-hobbies.com their co-star Meghan Ory (Red Riding Hood/Ruby Red) arrived as well. It seemed like this was the 1st time the she had seen Josh & Ginny in awhile, as there was hugs & lots of chatter about their off season.
Shortly before the flight cut off time we saw Lana Parrilla (Mayor Regina Mills/Evil Queen) arrive. She stopped to sign despite knowing she was pressed for time, even stopped to pose in her "Evil Regals" t-shirt she was sporting.
We gt the trio to sign several items, and then they were on their way.
Upon returning I actually missed Josh & Ginny returning...but was ok with it, since I had got everything signed on departure.
I saw Meghan returning, with sunglasses on at night, she was certainly looking the part of a Hollywood star.
A bonus return that night was Tony Amendola, better known recently as the villanous Kagame on Canadian sci-fi program Continuum, is also known as Geppetto/Marco on Once Upon A Time. With Continuum wrapped, I have to assume he was back to reprise his Geppetto/Marco role.
Of course, the autographs of these stars, and many other cast can be found in our "Once Upon A Time autographs" section at the link below.
