SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME Makes Rain & Lightning in Steveston for 2×05 – Updated

On a clear, warmish Thursday night in Steveston south of Vancouver, Once Upon a Time made rain and lightning as Lana Parrilla drove Regina’s vintage Mercedes to the main intersection of Storybrooke in take after take. Fans lined both sides of Moncton Street to watch and cheered when Josh Dallas came by to say Hello. The lovely woman beside me with the iPhone couldn’t contain herself, calling out, “You’re so cute.” Which he is. And real-life charming too. Fans also got to see [an unidentified double in the Daniel costume who I assumed was Noah Bean because he was on set later in the dark when we were asked not to take photographs of the scene. My apologies for the confusion.].

And then the main event: the biggest rain tower I’ve ever seen deluged Regina’s Mercedes with water again and again.

Once Upon a Time had spent the afternoon filming scenes on Moncton Street in front of Granny’s Diner and inside Mr. Gold, while other crew set up for the big night shoot which was expected to wrap after midnight.

Wetting the street before the deluge.

All that water from a Richmond fire hydrant.

Once Upon a Time season two premieres on Sunday, September 30th, at 8 p.m. on ABC in the U.S. and 7 p.m. on CTV in Canada.

    1. Noah Bean was on set as Adam Horowitz confirmed to one of our crew members but he wasn’t on those pictures there. He appeared with the cast – like Lana Parrilla and David Anders – in other pictures though, personal cast pictures.

        Noah Bean was in the scene which we were asked not to photograph. The actor in my photos is his Daniel double/standin in the same costume.

    I know it doesn’t look like Noah Bean. My poor photos. But crew called him Noah so I’ll stick with it for now.

  2. It’s not Noah. 🙁 Tumblr was buzzing with Regina/Daniel love today, but I guess we have to wait a little longer and keep the hope alive that we’ll see Noah Bean again later this season.

  3. I’m so confused. The networks and fansites are going wild with talk about Noah Bean today and I fear we’re in for many crushed fangirl hearts. Because that may be another Noah on set, but it’s not beloved Noah Bean/Daniel.

    Please understand that local fans (me included)see much more of the storylines than we let on. We don’t want to spoil the big twists. And so I didn’t say all that was seen last night. But since I can’t confirm that this is Noah Bean and since even I don’t think it looks like him in the photos I’ll update my post.
