In a rare achievement for any actor, Rose McIver is currently starring in two television airing on the same night. Sunday nights belong to Rose as she rules the screen as both Tinkerbell in ONCE UPON A TIME and as Vivian Scully in Showtime’s MASTERS OF SEX. Fans may not even recognize her in the two roles as they are so dramatically different. But the gifted young actress is ruling Sundays between the two roles, and she is having the time of her life. In a recent exclusive interview, Rose talked about the fun of portraying Tinkerbell and Vivian, as well as previewing what is next for her characters on both shows. [Read more…]

When the fairytale series ONCE UPON A TIME first debuted it was lauded to be from LOST writers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis. Surprisingly, by season 3, there is a lot more in common between the two shows than one would have initially suspected. In Season 1, there was Regina’s Storybrooke curse which at first glance seemed to resemble LOST’s smoke-monster as it was unleashed. Then in Season 3, there is an actual mystical island filled with all kinds of supernatural and unexpected things. There’s “lost boys” which remind us distinctly of LOST’s “the others,” lots of lush tropical foliage that seems to go in circles and is constantly rustling with foreboding danger, and but all accounts from everyone who goes there, it is equivalent to purgatory itself. Plus, there’s Peter Pan, who definitely feels very other-worldly. Even Hook describes Peter Pan as, “He may look like a boy, but he’s a bloody demon.” Peter Pan is Neverland’s a non-benevolent being that gives everyone nightmares; even Rumplestiltskin shudders at the thought of encountering him.
ONCE UPON A TIME’s journey to Neverland is anything but a peaceful journey to a world of constant delight. It is a place everyone seeks to avoid at all costs. Thus, when Greg and Tamara kidnapped Henry and took him off to Neverland at the behest of Home Office, little did they suspect what was really going on. Right away, they will see how naive they were to believe that this was a trip to eliminate magic.
Simultaneous to Greg, Tamara and Henry’s journey to Neverland, hot on their heels are wrathful and protective team of Regina, Emma, Snow, Charming, Gold and Hook. With their magical powers restored, both Regina and Gold are itching for the chance to demonstrate their newfound abilities. In addition, while their goals may be temporarily aligned in recovering Henry, none are too anxious to spend too much time together. Though Hook seems only too happy to aid in Emma’s quest now that he thinks the path to heart may be clear with Neal out of the picture.
Yet no one should be so quick to dismiss Neal. He is Rumplestiltskin’s son after all, and he quickly learns “that which does not kill you, makes you stronger.” Learning he has a family to fight for and return to has inspired Neal to embrace a bit of his own destiny.
Season 3 of ONCE UPON A TIME is all about “belief.” Who do we believe we are? The season will take each of the characters on a journey through their own pasts to help shed light on who they each are and why. Creators and executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz explain that only by remembering their pasts and learning from those experiences will each of the characters be saved from repeating it. So in exploring the theme of “belief” we will see the impact it has on each character — whether they believe, what they believe and whether they should believe. For Neverland runs on “belief.”
In a recent press Q&A, Eddy and Adam candidly shared a few teasers on what Season 3 holds in store for our Storybrooke heroes: [Read more…]
