Once Upon a Time casts Captain Nemo — exclusive (x)

Once Upon a Time has cast Faran Tahir as the famed Captain Nemo from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, EW has learned exclusively.

The Dallas and Warehouse 13 alum will play the hardened leader of the Nautilus submarine, who’s a zealous believer in a cause that takes him from 20,000 leagues under the sea to the destiny that he won’t let anyone prevent him from achieving.

“We’re thrilled to give a Once Upon a Time spin to the classic character of Captain Nemo from one of our favorite Disney films,20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis say. “We’re excited to see his mythology merge with Storybrooke’s own captain — Hook [Colin O’Donohue]. If for no other reason than to see the Jolly Roger go up against a submarine.”

The news comes in the wake of the EPs teasing at Comic-Con that season 6 would uncover some surprising secrets from Hook’s past. Captain Nemo also enters the scene just as OUAT is introducing the Land of Untold Stories, opening up the world of the show beyond the fairy tale characters we’ve come to know and love.

Tahir joins the growing list of newbies in season 6, including Oded Fehr as Jafar, Deniz Akdeniz as Aladdin, Karen David as Princess Jasmine, Giles Matthey as Morpheus, and Craig Horner as the Count of Monte Cristo.

Positivity for the Win!

Since we’re rapidly approaching the OUAT season premiere, I thought I’d write a bit about how I maintain my positivity about the show and more specifically, Captain Swan. Really, it’s not hard. There’s no magical potion to drink or curse to break. Just repeat after me: LOW EXPECTATIONS

Now that’s not to say that I don’t love the show. I do. I think it’s fantastic, wonderful & amazing and Captain Swan continues to punch me right in the feels on a regular basis. However, I don’t expect anything from the show and I don’t believe TPTB owe me anything. We’re the fans–the consumers–and while we’re important, we’re not the artists. The show doesn’t belong to us. It belongs to the artists, which are Adam and Eddy.  And I truly believe they do have a larger plan at work and we have to trust in that plan. They love both Emma and Killian and Captain Swan as a ship. I fully believe they’ll do justice to both the individual characters and the relationship. They’re just playing the long-game. And you know what’s good about the long-game? That’s what you do with an endgame ship. If Captain Swan were a blip on the romance radar, all their milestones would’ve been rushed. They’d be married and separated by now. But the opposite is happening, and that screams ENDGAME SHIP

Frankly, the only times I’ve been disappointed by Captain Swan have been when I’ve momentarily slipped and broken my “low expectations” rule.  Seriously, those have been the only instances. Every other moment has been utter perfection because I’ve been able to savor everything we’ve been lucky enough to get. And really, we’ve gotten SO MUCH.

So yeah….low expectations. Go into the season with a blank slate. Don’t expect certain relationship milestones or events to occur. Realize that speculation about spoilers is just that—speculation. The show might (and likely will) go in a completely different direction. And finally, recognize that OUAT has a LARGE cast, including a revolving guest cast, all with backstories that need to be told. Adam and Eddy regularly struggle to maintain balance between all their various storylines and it’s just not possible for all storylines to receive equal screentime. That’s the way it is in ALL shows with a large ensemble cast. 

So sit back, relax, and appreciate whatever comes onscreen. You’ll be so much happier that way.

Here’s another video from filming at Fort Langley for 601. ENJOY :D

Hello! CS + Q please?

hi there!

q: one missed call

1 - KILLIAN JONES.  12:15PM.

The message blinked back at her as soon as Emma turned on her phone.  She’d forgotten to charge it in the morning before running after Storybrooke’s latest crisis (Pongo had run off) pretty much all day.  While Pongo had been successfully returned to his owner, the chase hadn’t been easy, which meant that Emma’s phone had died somewhere along the mad dash through the town streets.

She opened the texts first.

Swan.  Lunch break.  Granny’s?

It’s been two minutes.  No response.  Did I do this right?

I’m calling you.  One sex.

SEC.  ONE SEC.  BLOODY TALKING PHONE.

She paused in the stream of messages to open his voicemail.

“Swan, it’s Killian.  I’ll be at Granny’s at twelve if you’re not still chasing that infernal animal all over town.  I tried sending you a few word messages, not sure if you got them.”  A break.  “What is it, David?  Yes, it’s Emma on the talking apparatus.  Little busy.”  His voice returned.  “Ah.  Anyway, I’ll be here if you can catch a break.  See you later, love.”  

Emma was just about to put the phone down when she heard Killian’s voice start up again.  

“Okay, she should be here in a little while.  Everyone in your positions.  You put the ring with the onion rings?  David, Snow, in the corner over there, and Henry…”  

Emma’s heart skipped a beat.

There was a scuffle on the other end of the line, as if Killian had just realized what had happened.  A sharp whooshing sound as he yanked the phone upwards.  “Bloody hell!  It’s still going?  I said goodbye and everything!  Well…”

Emma heard the telltale clatter of feet on his end that meant he was pacing, thinking.  Then his voice returned, an octave higher than normal.

“See you at Granny’s, Swan!”  

The voicemail cut off.  Emma put the phone down for a second, and waited for her heart to start racing.  

For some reason, it didn’t.  Maybe because she’d been waiting for this moment for so long, she wasn’t afraid of it anymore.  Maybe she never had been afraid of it.

Just before she made her way to the diner, for what might be the best lunch break of her life, Emma checked the messages underneath the voicemail.

Come when you can.  See you soon.

Oh, and Swan?

Try not to check your voicemail if you can help it?
