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.
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?
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.

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 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....

Last week I was given a heads up by someone about a OUAT shoot in Gastown. By the time I got there, they had moved from the street to inside a bar. I caught the Once Upon A Time crew out filming in the tourist trap neighbourhood of downtown Vancouver. This was the FIRST TIME since the pilot I had found them downtown, and only the 2nd time since the pilot they had been down here.
Last time they filmed downtown I was out of town & it involved scenes with Jennifer Morrison, Michael Raymond James & Eion Bailey doing flashback scenes on the backstory of Emma Swan.
So what were they doing in the big downtown core of Vancouver this time? More flashback scenes???Well... NO. These scenes were clearly current day scenes...and you will see why as you read on.
The 1st night I found them filming in the popular Blarney stone Pub. Scenes seemed to only involve two actors, Michael Raymond-James & Jennifer Morrison chatting in a bar in the SoHo district of New York City. The scene was practically impossible to see any of except for a very small slivver of window that wasnt covered with black drapes. From there, all you could see was Michael, and if you angled your head the right way, for a breif moment, Jennifer would be partially in view. Not a lot to see there...and this, I didnt take many shots.
The next day, they filmed out on the street. I missed a scene earlier where Jennifer Morrison & Michael Raymond James did a chase scene that ended with 1 of them tackling the other in an alley.
When I arrived they had moved that same scene back a bit and were prepping things to shoot the chase scene that would lead to the alley tackle. Jennifer Morrison & a stunt man in place of Michael Raymond James did a scene where they ran thru New York City traffic.
The big SPOILER came after that when they moved further up the street to where this scene would start. That is when I saw a most unlikely combo of people step out of a New York City Cab together.
As the cab showed up, the 1st take I noticed Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) & Henry Mills (Jared Gilmore) get out of a cab with a 3rd person.... it wasnt till I look at the photos after the take & realized the 3rd person was...... MR. GOLD (Robert Carlyle). This is a pretty large spoiler (in my opinion) on a couple fronts. 1- Emma and Gold working together? 2- Gold is out of Storybrooke. The scene had the 3 of them get out of the cab together, look up at a building then proceed to the building before Emma stops and notices someone jumping off a fire escape & start running away (the start of the chase scene).
While many people saw the scenes in the alley & of Emma running thru traffic, very few stayed around for the largest reveal scene of the day with Mr. Gold being out of Storybrooke.
