What an off season it was for Once Upon A Time. Never in my history of covering shows has so much happened to one show in the casting department. Gone as regulars are the shows longtime cast of Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, Jared Gilmore, Emilie de Ravin & Rebecca Mader. Coming in to fill all those holes? Andrew J West, Danai Ramirez, Gabrielle Anwar, Adelaide Kane, Rose Reynolds & maybe a few others?
With only regulars Colin O'Donoghue, Lana Parrilla and Robert Carlyle holding together the shows past with its present, it has been on them to keep the dwindling fandom interested in coming back for the re-invention of the series that sees them move from a fictional town in Maine, to a fictional region of a real city in Washington State.
I caught up with OUAT filming a scene for 1 of the earlier episodes a couple months ago in a niehgbourhood of Vancouver I used to live in. Earlier in the day they had a much more public shoot about a 5 minute drive from where I found them that had many more fans at it than the locale I was at where I was the ONLY person in attendance.
On set this day was Robert Carlyle, as his new persona, which if you are to believe the fandom, is a detective by the name Mr. Weaver (I was unable to confirm his job, but his name IS confirmed.... this is just what I have been told from multiple sources. No official statement has stated this yet.). Gone is the old fancy suits of Mr. Gold and the scaly golden skin of Rumplestiltskin, now Bobby finds himself playing a character dressed in more casual attire, on this day, dressed in jeans & dark camouflage jacket. He was doing a scene with show newcomer, Rose Reynolds. While we have heard tidbits about the returning cast, we have heard little about the new cast. Reynolds is believed to be playing two characters, Alice, inspired by the Alice In Wonderland stories. As well as Tilly, who it is believed is in reference to 1 of Alices sisters.
On this day, the scene they shot had Bobby walking across a quiet street in Hyperion Heights, the new fictional area they are all in thats supposedly part of Seattle. various extras were dressed like they were going to a costume party. Bobby comes up on a pair in the middle of the street, stops them by tapping 1 on the shoulder, when they turn around, a small interaction happens, before Bobby grabs the mask of the 1 actor and snaps it back at his face, before cutting between them & walking towards his final objective. He gets to a large weird looking art structure that looks somewhat like a tree, but is shaped like a creature with eyes, a mouth and hands.
In the tree/artwork, we find Roses character casually playing with a rubix cube thats missing most of its coloured squares. The pair talk for a few moments, Rose then tosses the rubix cube to Bobby before she leaps up and states shes now "10 feet tall" in a very childish, almost juvenile tone. A bit more conversation goes on, before she hops out of the tree/artwork and down onto the ground where they talk more, before Rose grabs Bobbys hand and tels him to come with her as she starts to run away. Bobby casually lets go of her hand as she runs & skips up the street away from him while he casually walks in the same direction.
They did this scene for a couple hours before I finally left. I dont know if there was anything different shot after their lunch break.
