SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME Films Jared Gilmore & Colin O’Donoghue at Steveston’s Garry Point Park

What are Once Upon a Time’s Henry (Jared Gilmore) and Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) doing together on a beach with a campfire? Season three’s back half of episodes are a mystery to me and that’s fine most of the time except when it comes to knowing how large a spoiler scene this is. Medium? Major? Once Upon a [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME Back in Steveston’s Storybrooke

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Storybrooke since Peter Pan’s curse seemingly blinked it out of existence. Before Christmas, Once Upon a Time filmed scenes at the Fort Langley Community Hall dressed as Storybrooke for a spring block episode. But today is the first time we’ve seen the main cast in Steveston as Storybrooke since Pan’s [...]


ABC at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour on January 17, 2014.  Once Upon a Time in Wonderland had “no business being on Thursday night,” admitted ABC entertainment boss Paul Lee about the network’s decision to launch the fledgling drama in the Fall against The Big Bang Theory on the busiest, most competitive night [...]


December 21st to January 5th is the two-week holiday hiatus for returning Vancouver productions this season, with most expected back filming on Monday, January 6th. Enjoy the break. [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s S3 Winter Finale in Steveston with Robbie Kay and Robert Carlyle

Withheld these photos until after broadcast since it seemed too big of a spoiler to be part of. Team Henry vanquish foe Peter Pan in the end, with Rumplestiltskin sacrificing himself to kill  the father who abandoned him to spend his life as a boy with magic. The scene: Henry (Jared Gilmore)  runs out of [...]

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 [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME Films Jennifer Morrison & Christopher Gorham in Yaletown as New York City – Updated

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 [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME Turns Vancouver Club into NYPD 35th Precinct

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 [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s #CaptainSwan (Jennifer Morrison & Colin O’Donoghue) in Stanley Park as NYC’s Central Park

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 [...]
