Keck’s Exclusives: Once Upon a Time Loses Its Little Red to CBS
TV Guide Magazine: Meghan, this sudden show change-a-roo comes as quite a shock to fans, but I suspected something was up when Ruby was missing completely from Once’s finale. Meghan Ory: Yes, I think most people were a little taken aback by this little secret surprise.
TV Guide Magazine: Howdid it come about? Ory: It was all very crazy and serendipitous. I was under contract for Once, but there have been so many new characters this year that the storyline [executive producers] Eddy [Kitsis] and Adam [Horowitz] wanted to do with Ruby ended up not being able to happen because they decided to take the show in a different way. They are so brilliant, so when they were inspired they had to follow their amazing idea for what they wanted to do with Neverland. I hadn’t been in a few episodes — my last was when everyone came back from New York — so I talked to the boys and asked them, ‘What’s going on? Is everything okay?’ And they said, ‘We love you, but we have this story that’s so huge we don’t know where we’re going to put you at this moment.’ So I said, ‘Maybe I should look elsewhere?’
TV Guide Magazine: At the start of the season, it seemed as though Ruby in wolf form was going to end up as either a pawn of the Queen or Mr. Gold. Ory: I think that may have been an idea at one point, but the [Neverland] story took on a life of its own, and you can only tell so many stories. Originally, Josh [Dallas, who plays David] and I were going to be together longer in Storybrooke, but I think they decided to bring the girls back sooner from Fairytale Land.
TV Guide Magazine: So how did Intelligence come about? Ory: My agents spoke with the [Once] producers, who said, ‘If she wants to go look for something, that’s fine.’ My team told me about this pilot that was shooting in Vancouver, but I was at my grandmother’s funeral so I couldn’t go test for it. I couldn’t leave my family, so I said no. They ended up testing me at the cast table read with Josh [Holloway] and everyone. Afterwards, I waited outside and they said, ‘So you want to do the show?’ We started shooting three days later. I ended up calling Eddy and Adam to tell them how thankful I was for the huge opportunity they gave me, and they were thrilled for me. Eddy said, ‘You’ve gone from protecting Snow White to protecting Josh.’
Been curious about ABC’s drama, Once Upon a Time but haven’t been able to catch up yet? Want to join in the fun before we reach the final four episodes of season two?
Look no further! Tonight on ABC at 8/7c, The Price of Magic, a season two special episode will premiere. It will take a look into what has happened in season two thus far, bringing new fans up to date before the final four episodes of season two kick in starting next week. (Longtime fans, there will also be teases into what’s to come in the next four episodes.)
ABC invites new and avid “Once Upon a Time” viewers to take a look at one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed shows. “Once Upon a Time: The Price of Magic” will explore the series in a way that will bring new viewers up to date — but which current viewers will also find illuminating - in discovering the consequences the residents of Storybrooke have had to endure since magic was introduced into the town, and whether Mary Margaret’s path has been tainted since learning that her heart has been darkened after she killed Regina’s mother, Cora. Series creators and executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz will provide some inside scoop on the importance of family, the characters’ journeys and the mythology of the show. They will also tease what’s upcoming in the exciting final four episodes of the season. “Once Upon a Time: The Price of Magic” airs SUNDAY, APRIL 14 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Commuters had an enchanting start to their day today when they were caught unawares by fairy tale characters on the London Underground.
Spreading a little fairy tale magic to gruff Londoners and delighted tourists, Red Riding Hood and Prince Charming took to the tube this morning rather than their usual enchanted surroundings. The characters, played in Channel 5’s Once Upon a Time by Meghan Ory and Josh Dallas, were here to celebrate the ABC Studios fantasy drama series coming back to our screens this Sunday at 9pm.
