SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s New Neverland in Steveston


You never know what the big spoilers will be on Once Upon a Time. Tonight’s episode title The New Neverland suggested the big secret was how many Neverland characters would return to Storybrooke with the Jolly Roger gang and rescued Henry. But that wasn’t the big secret was it? Peter Pan (Robbie Kay) stowing aboard in [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s Jennifer Morrison & Lana Parrilla Film in Fort Langley


Once Upon a Time filmed at the Fort Langley Community Hall as the Storybrooke Town Hall yesterday for the first time in season three. Fans spotted an almost full cast either in exterior scenes or coming and going from interior scenes in the daylight. The night shoot was much smaller with only a #SwanQueen scene of Henry’s two mothers Regina (Lana [...]

If you don’t want to be spoiled for Once Upon a Time’s spring premiere New York City Serenade, please stop reading now. When I saw Christopher Gorham hug Jennifer Morrison on the Yaletown set outside Brix restaurant last Thursday night (November 21st), it tempted me to tweet a new shipper name like #Swangie or #AugSwan in honour [...]

Once Upon a Time’s spring premiere next year is entitled New York City Serenade. Showrunner Adam Horowitz shared the title spoiler in mid-November and we’ve seen several location shoots for episode 3×12 in downtown Vancouver dressed as New York City — from Gastown’s Koret Lofts to Stanley Park dressed as Central Park to the Vancouver Club as [...]

Who needs a Leaf Lady to scatter bags of dried leaves on a beautiful fall day in Stanley Park ? Once Upon a Time filmed a #CaptainSwan — Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) and Captain Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) — scene among autumn leaves south of Lumberman’s Arch today dressed as New York City’s Central Park. Someone spotted the modern fairy [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s Jolly Roger Gang Comes Home to Storybrooke


The Jolly Roger Gang returned to Storybrooke late last month in a massive shoot in Steveston involving 25 cast at the barge set, moored at private commercial fishing docks east of the Britannia Heritage Shipyard Park. Despite the openness of the big reunion, I don’t think Once Upon a Time planned for this to be [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME Kiss in Steveston – Newly Engaged & Expectant Parents Ginnifer Goodwin & Josh Dallas


Once Upon a Time is back on Moncton Street in Steveston as the Jolly Roger Gang return from Neverland to Storybrooke. And everyone seemed happy to be there yesterday. Newly-engaged couple [and expectant parents] Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas (The Charmings) shared a quick kiss on set to Jennifer Morrison’s delight before the cameras rolled [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s The Charmings in Steveston


Once Upon a Time filmed in Steveston today. Everything about this shoot is a spoiler but this photo ranks as a mild one since the Charming cast — newly engaged Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas with Jared Gilmore and Jennifer Morrison —  are themselves not their characters in this moment. [...]

SHOOT: JoAnna Garcia as ONCE UPON A TIME’s Ariel in Steveston’s Garry Point Park


Last night’s promo introduced fans to the Once Upon a Time version of beloved red-haired mermaid Ariel played by JoAnna Garcia Swisher.  Here she is in costume in Steveston’s Garry Point Park for a scene with Emilie de Ravin’s Belle, filmed in late summer (mid-September) here.

Here’s Sbarge coming out to greet the fans this afternoon. Update: Lana Parrilla met with fans when she was leaving set after nightfall. [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s Pied Piper Sequence in North Vancouver Rock Quarry


In tonight’s flashback, we learn that Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle) takes back his son Baelfire (Dylan Schmid) from Peter Pan (Robbie Kay) who has lured him away from home  in the Enchanted Forest. Unlike most of this season’s Neverland scenes, Once Upon a Time filmed this earlier encounter with Pan in the abandoned rock quarry at North [...]
