PERFORMANCE: Beverley Elliott’s One-Woman Show Coming to Vancouver Fringe Festival

Anyone who’s been to the Leo Awards in recent years knows that Beverley Elliott — Once Upon a Time’s Granny — puts on one hell-of-a-show. I still chant her original song “I’m Mad at Myself” whenever I’m . . .mad . . .at . . . myself. So look for her one-woman show  “…..didn’t see [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) & Elsa (Georgina Haig) in Steveston

Do Once Upon a Time’s Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and Frozen’s Elsa (Georgina Haig) know one another?  They shot a scene together in Steveston as Storybrooke — walking out together and then down Main Street. But later Elsa made a motion as if to freeze Hook, so maybe they’re not that friendly after all. Update: One of [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s Robin Hood (Sean Maguire), Marian (Christie Laing) & Son (Raphael Alejandro) in Steveston

How evil will the Evil Queen get when she sees this happy family? And what of #OutlawQueen shippers? I’d advise the fan who ships Robin Hood and Marian not to wear her t-shirt in Steveston today. #OutlawQueen, #SwanQueen and #EvilRegals did not get their happy ending last season when Emma unknowingly brought back Robin Hood’s lost [...]
