The Actors, Crew and Sets - Behind the ScenesThese shots are sometimes official studio stills and sometimes taken by visitors to the sets. This is a sample of candid behind-the-scenes photographs from every season just to show what the actual set is like on normal and not-so-normal days.
|Jennifer Morrison and Colin O'Donoghue. It may be my imagination, but I think the emergence of Hook as a central character has helped Jennifer's character most of all.|
We'll pretty much go in reverse chronological order, though not always. This is by no means any kind of complete compilation of anything and is not meant to be 'inclusive' or 'representative' or anything that has three or more syllables in it. It is just random shots from the show's set to give a flavor of what it's like to film the series in Vancouver. There is a ton of material out there, these shots just meet my own view of what it takes to convey life on a tv set. I think it succeeds at that goal. Let me emphasize again: purely random shots.
Oh, I update this page probably more than any other on the site, so drop by every so often to catch up.
