Once Upon A Time films scenes for a season 3 episode with 5 cast January 22, 2014 in Steveston - Aka Storybrooke
THIS POST MAY CONTAIN MILD SPOILERS FOR A SEASON 3 EPISODE 16 OF "ONCE UPON A TIME" Please do not read or view photos if you do not wish to see or read details about filming prior to the episode airing.
Once Upon A Time filmed in Steveston on a chilly late January day for scenes with a variety of cast including Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Jennifer Morrison, Emilie de Ravin & Rose McIver.
I could not really tell much about what the scene was, but it had the 5 of them standing in the middle of a street in downtown Storybrooke talking about something. This was the 1st time I saw the OUAT cast on set in 2014 & I believe might have been the 1st cast I saw in 2014 at all. It was also the 1st time I saw Josh & Ginny since my departure pic of them that you probably saw in 1 of several celeb sites back before Christmas.
In a far less common problem of late, the crew of the Once Upon A Time production seem to be the only ones in Vancouver that still think holding up umbrellas when its not raining is an acceptable practice. They might be in for a rude awakening someday soon, legally.
Anyways, below is the selection of photos I have chosen to show you from that days shoot. In a cool, fairly unexpected moment, Emilie & Jennifer came over to see the fans at the end of the day. Of the 5 cast there, I would have wagered that they would be the two most unlikely to come over, but I certainly didnt complain.
In this set is the group photos from that day. At a later date I will post some of the solo, or individual prominent photos of the cast there that day.
Once Upon A Time returns TOMORROW March 9, 2014 on ABC in the U.S. & CTV in Canada
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.
Once Upon A Time films a scene for the finale of season 2 with Henry, Emma, Mr. Gold, David, Mary & Granny.

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.

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.
First off, I dont know if these were scenes for episode 1 or episode 2, because I was told conflicting things on what order they were filmed in.
Anyways, on this given day, several cast members were on set.
Josh Dallas (David/Prince Charming), Ginnifer Goodwin (Mary Margaret Blanchard/Snow White), Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan) & Emilie DeRavin (Belle) were going into Mr. Gold's pawn shop.
I will post some more pics from the night shoot (many of them are a bit grainy/blurry because of the lack of light) from those scenes, but here are the daytime shots form set.
Also, a couple photos of a souvenier the production team gave local shop owners for their co-operation throughout season 1 filming. A replica VW Beetle like the 1 Emma drives signed by Jennifer Morrison. This particular 1 is on display at Sara's Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlour right next door to Mr. Golds.

. LAST WARNING
On the second day of filming in Steveston, BC. The Storybrooke residents were dealing with the aftermath of the fallout of season 1.
The streets of Storybrooke looked like a hurricane had ripped thru the small fictional Maine town.
A couple scenes were seen being filmed while I was there. First up Josh Dallas (David/Charming) chased Sebatstian Stan (Jefferson/Mad Hatter) thru the street as Meghan Ory (Ruby/Red Riding Hood) stops him to tell him that Regina is at the root of all the problems there are right now (I am hiding a spoiler that was said in the scene as a courtesy to the show who did state they are displeased with how many big spoilers seem to spill out).
Later, a scene at the hardware store saw the 7 dwarves saw Lee Arenberg (Leroy/Grumpy), David Paul-Grove (Doc), another actor (Happy), Faustina Di Bauda (Sleepy), Mig Macario (Bashful), Jeffrey Kaiser (Dopey) leave the hardware store with a variety of construction materials, as they cross paths with Gabe Khouth (Mr. Clark/Sneezy) who seemed to be not partaking in the groups plan. the group of 6 dwarves goes 1 way as Sneezy stands on a corner watching them head off to work.
Several cast members thru the day came over & met with fans. the biggest being when Josh Dallas and Meghan Ory did a meet & greet in the garage area.
As well, Raphael Sbarge (Jiminy Cricket/Dr. Hopper) also was seen meeting fans, including the wiener dog from the day before that Josh Dallas met, Emma. Emma, an avid licker of faces, decided to take a taste of the doc, Raphael was a terrific sport about it. I caught it frame by frame below. Quite entertaining.
Below are some pics of the set, filming, and of course interactions with the fans... including, my 1st pics of Sebastian Stan on set.

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,
