Some C2E2 panel highlights:
Liz calling framework Fitz hot
Iain talking about the “X-rated” deleted scenes
Liz saying she cries while reading the Fitzsimmons scenes, even when they aren’t exactly sad because she’s really emotionally invested in them (same)
Liz saying that her favorite Fitzsimmons scene hasn’t aired yet
Iain talking about how much he loves working with Liz (he did this for two questions lol) and then ending the panel by saying “But she’s still an asshole”
Lena Luthor Appreciation Week | Day 6
Favorite Scene or Episode
↳ 2x08 Medusa.
You know, I thought you were different. You wear that symbol on your chest and everyone thinks you’re good. How many times did your cousin put on that high-and-mighty costume and come after Lex? My mother is no saint, but you come in here and accuse her of being the Devil incarnate? How long before you come after me?
I know what it’s like to be disillusioned by our parents. But I’m a pretty good judge of character. And you are not like your mother. She is cold and dangerous. And you are too good and too smart to follow in her path.Be your own hero.
-kagome is a happy singing drunk and just carries a mic around with her at all times
-sango secretly thinks Inuyasha is hot
-Inuyasha’s fearful high pitched “Go???”
-Inuyasha calmly saying “look before you speak” while he’s being aggressively sat
-sango trying to kill miroku
2x08 Medusa - It’s a rocket launcher and it’s yours. Take it.
I found a better part. Lena pretending to be in agreement with her mother’s plans and suddenly she changes sides, saving all the aliens. She was smart. She knew that if she did not pretend to agree, her mother would not show who she really was. That’s when she believed what the supergirl told.
Highlights from the Mixed Cast panel at Storytelling Con, Barcelona, April 22, 2017
Please note I missed the first 10 minutes of this panel… 5AM is early to get up on a Saturday :)
Favorite scenes for each actor:
Gil: “I guess I have to go with meeting Ariel. I’ve had some nice scenes but that was really the special one. It was the first scene that I shot. Walking down the stairs and seeing Ariel and falling in love.”
Sean: “It’s difficult to pick one because there are lots of scenes that I enjoyed. But there is an episode [4.17] where I’m riding a horse down a street in New York. And obviously you can’t ride a real horse on concrete because it’s dangerous. So they have this pretend mechanical horse which is just a big rocking horse and they put it on a truck and they drive it down the street. So I’m on a big pretend rocking horse driving down a main street and there are all these people in Vancouver looking at me going what is that guy doing? And I was like… I’m Robin Hood.”
Beverley: “My favorite scene was in Red Handed, when Ruby was just about to attack Peter and I threw the cape on her… that was so exciting because we were outside in the snow it was beautiful it was tense and we were fighting and I had to throw the cape on her and turn her back into Ruby.”
Bex: “I have two favorite scenes. My first one I love the scene with Zelena and Regina in the episode… I love all the stuff that explores the relationship between the sisters. And there was one episode in season 5 called Sisters… there was a very emotional scene with me and my sister and our mommy when she made us hold hands and close our eyes and we remembered that we had known each other all along. That was my first one and my second one was the musical which you haven’t seen yet!”
Gil sang A Whole New World to Deniz as if he was Ariel.
Bex best moment as the Wicked Witch: “My song in the musical was so much fun! I don’t even know what to do with myself. I keep looking at the calendar is it May 7th yet? That was the best moment for my character because in this song it tells my character’s whole story in one three and a half minute song. One of the best days of my life.”
The most touching moment filming scenes:
Gil: “Getting to kiss Ariel. Multiple times. I was like ‘can I get one more?’ They are like Gil it doesn’t need to be an open mouthed kiss.”
Bex: “One of the most emotional scenes I shot was when I had to give up my baby to Robin and Regina because I was hurting her and I had to surrender her that was really…”
Beverley: “When they were going through the gate back to [the Enchanted Forest] and I had to say goodbye to Roland. […] I was holding the baby and I kissed his head that was very touching. Raphael is a gorgeous little actor.”
Sean: “Obviously working with Raphael. I started working with him before I became a dad… because I was a child actor myself I felt very protective over him. It was one of the first days I was filming with him I had him in my arms and he was only 5 at the time and I have lots of nieces and nephews and I’m very touchy feelly and I kissed him on the head. We weren’t filming and he turned around and said ‘did you just kiss me?’ And I was like yes, yes I did. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to do that… why is this strange man kissing me… from day one we had a really strong bond, we got along very well. He’s just a very sweet boy and I love him.”
Faustino: “When we have these little glimpses of nature cutting in. We were shooting a scene [in 3.02] by the river with Snow White and Charming and all the dwarves and in comes a deer. Just starts walking. Walking … walking and we’re just kind of doing our scene and the deer is in the scene. Everyone at that point was .. and then at that point the deer was right there and Ginny goes ‘oh my god’ … and on the wedding scene we had some birds that snuck in the building while filming we had those glimpses of nature setting in…”
Deniz: “I was always a big fan of the cartoons of Aladdin and on the first day we actually got to do the scene where I fly in and Jasmine’s in the hourglass and Jafar’s there with the staff and I’m in the cartoon I’ve watched four hundred million times… And I got to be Aladdin and save her…”
What do you love most about Once Upon a Time:
Gil: “That I got to play a Disney prince. Because honestly I was shocked that I got that part. I feel honored and humbled.”
Deniz: “That I got to work with all these lovely people.”
Faustino: “I love the message. It’s a message of hope and ah that message is represented through all of you. Thank you.”
Bex: “The best thing about Once Upon a Time is how it’s brought all of us together. The fandom has created a community. Like no matter what happens we’ll always have each other.”
Beverley: “I love that it took these fairy tales that we all knew as children and then gave this life and history which connected all of us together. And that it’s international. The cast is international and now we get to travel the world and have this international community.”
Sean: “I just like that I get to wear leather head to toe all day and they pay me.”
Will Zelena be a good person or will she just be a wicked witch: “I think Zelena is going through a massive transformation… I think becoming a mother has made her heart softer. You’ll see throughout the rest of the season what happens with Zelena’s relationship with Regina but I think no matter how redeemed my character becomes there always be a little bit of wicked in there.”
What UK food does Bex miss the most: “A good bloody cup of tea! Like a proper cup of tea with milk and sugar! Like a lady!”
For Sean: What do you like most about playing a Disney fairy tale character? “Well I thought of Robin Hood as a character by itself before Disney made a Disney movie of Robin Hood. I just liked the fact that I got to play a … just getting to play the legend of Robin Hood. It’s just one of those characters that any male actor would really enjoy.”
What do you think about fans that follow you around the world [at conventions] are they crazy?:
Bex: “I think it’s amazing that people get on a plane to come and meet us. It’s mental. We are very very honored and it really means a lot to us.”
They were asked to dance the Macarana. Bex attempted to decline saying she needs more coffee but Beverley made them all get up and do it. The editor at this point is having 1990s PTSD flashbacks…
Favorite same sex love interest for your own characters:
Sean: “I don’t want to disappoint the gents here because they’re strapping men every one of them but I’d have to say my old pal Colin O’Donoghue. When he raises that eyebrow I just fall to pieces.”
Gil: “Aladdin here. He’s got long hair …. something to grab hold of….”
Deniz: “I’d have to go with the one and only Prince Charming. He’s the prince of Charming.”
Faustino: “Charming absolutely.”
Beverley: “I just feel strange because I’m a grandmother… of course Zelena would be number one but my tied for number one … Jasmine …”
Bex: “I think Zelena might have a crush on Belle. She’s so little! I can pick her up she’s so cute! In really life I think Rebecca Mader would go for Lana Parrilla we’re not sisters in real life so it’s not wrong. It’s not weird.”
How long does it take to become the Wicked Witch: “Three hours. Seven coffees. And lots of snapchat, twitter and instagram. But once the green makeup is on it can stay on for 17 hours and then it takes half an hour to take off. And then I look 16 at the end because it’s taken all the skin off.”
Who is your favorite scene partner:
Beverley: “I love hanging out with Archie and Geppetto. We have a nice little trio and the three of us [talk a lot].”
Gil: “Again there are just so many to choose from. I’m going to say Joanna who plays Ariel. Though last time I was up there I got to work with Karen David and she was absolutely wonderful. Do you want to trade?” [to Deniz]
Deniz: “Karen David’s my answer. Actually no Jafar.. Oded is so fun to work with. He’s so evil and so lovely in person. It’s kind of cool to see him switch.”
Faustino: “Since I play dwarf I’m going to say my dwarf brothers. Because we have a lot of fun all the time.”
Sean: “I can’t pick one person. All of us became good friends. Bex is like my sister, Colin is like my brother, Mikey Raymond-James who left the show a little while ago is one of my best friends…. it’s a tie. Lana obviously … I can’t pick between all of my favorites.”
Bex: “Lana Parrilla! Two reasons I like working with my sister the most. One when we’re in character we play and each take is different. And number two she makes tea like a British lady. I spend a lot of time in her trailer drinking her tea and eating her chocolate.”
If you could play any other character:
Sean declines to answer because they were all well cast. “I’m very happy I got to be Robin Hood because I think I would have been a terrible Queen of Darkness.”
Bex doesn’t want to play anyone else but her.
Deniz: “I’d like to play Zelena for a day. Just for a day. One day get green…”
Gil: “Prince Charming because he’s gotten to do way more episodes than me.”
Faustino: “Hook, that’s an interesting character.”
Happy Saturday everyone!
Another beautiful and memorable scene that leaves us this awesome season, One of my favorite episodes without doubt, the birth of Halley!.
For me the relationship between Howard and Bernadette this season has been beautiful, they have grown, matured and now they are a little family that I´m totally in love. I can´t wait to know what adventures await us these two next seasons with the family Wolowitz- Rostenkowski!
Hope you like it, and have a wonderful weekend!
