Keck’s Exclusives: Once Upon a Time Stars Talk Season Finale
TV Guide Magazine: What’s the coolest thing about the season finale? Robert Carlyle (Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin): Sneezy, who went over the town line, might be getting his memory back. Edward Kitsis (executive producer): And if he gets his memory back for a happy dwarf reunion, I wonder what other characters could, too? Carlyle: There’s a lovely moment Emilie de Ravin [Belle] and I shot that Rumpbelle fans will love. But in Once style, it doesn’t last long. Adam Horowitz (executive producer): After two years, these characters are going to a place emotionally and physically different from where they’ve ever gone before. Ginnifer Goodwin (Mary Margaret/Snow White): There is something that happens in the finale that breaks a pattern, and I look forward to seeing how that changes the people involved. Lana Parrilla (Regina/Evil Queen): I love that there’s a possibility for Snow and Regina to have a relationship. We’re all family. Kitsis: You all have blood on your hands, but you all have love in your hearts. The question is, what will unite our rivals? Magic’s got a price, and it’s incredibly heartbreaking. Josh Dallas (David/Prince Charming): Like the finale of Season 1, this will change it all completely.
TV Guide Magazine: When you learned that Storybrooke was in danger of being destroyed in the finale, what were your thoughts? Parrilla: I thought, “Poor Steveston” [the British Columbia town that doubles for Storybrooke]. It’s made such a living off the show. Carlyle: I’d be sincerely upset to lose Mr. Gold’s shop. I’m very, very protective of it. Goodwin: Oh, yes, you are! [Whispers] None of the rest of us are allowed to touch anything in there. Parrilla: Even the props that once belonged to us! Or we’ll get hit in the hand with his cane.
Zimbio: Emilie de Ravin Previews Belle’s Shocking Transformation
We’re going to get two very different versions of Belle in this upcoming episode, one where she’s taken on this Lacey persona in Storybrooke and one where she’s back in fairytale land with Rumplestiltskin. Was it fun to dig in and really play up those differences? Yes, a lot of fun. Well it’s really even three [personas] because she starts off in the hospital still with a blank memory and so it all stems from there. But yeah, it was a really cool challenge and that’s the kind of thing I love.
In the sneak peek images from this week’s episode, Belle is kind of sexed up and playing pool in a bar — very unlike the normally sweet version of her we usually see. What can you tell us about Lacey? Well, Regina decides to bring Belle’s memory back, but a false memory like Mary Margaret had as a school teacher. So my false memory is nothing of Belle — I know nothing of her or who she is — it’s Lacey. And Lacey is described as a scantily-clad barfly. [laughs] She hangs at the Rabbit Hole every day and is doing a bunch of shots while she’s playing pool with the dwarfs. And the way she dresses, yeah, it’s a little provocative, but it’s not for a date-seeking reason. It’s just how she likes to dress. And she doesn’t care what anyone thinks, she’s strong-minded and she’s a smart, take care of herself kind of girl who’s just happy where she is. She doesn’t need adventure or to go anywhere — pretty much the opposite of Belle. And this is all done by Regina in an attempt to ruin Mr. Gold’s life. Because Belle’s the love of his life and [Regina]’s like, ‘Good luck getting Lacey to fall in love with you.’
ETOnline: Rose McGowan Returns To Her Witchy Roots
ETonline: Were you previously a fan of the show? Rose McGowan: I had seen the show, but not been able to follow it because of traveling. Ginnifer Goodwin owns my old house, so we’ve always been friendly — then the creators, invited me into their office and asked if I’d ever consider doing something on their show, and I wanted to … as long as I could play some high level acting tennis with Robert Carlyle. We had a tremendous time. He’s an amazingly talented actor and anytime you get to play act with someone of that caliber, you jump at it.
ETonline: Considering you’re playing a younger version of a pre-existing character, did you watch Barbara Hershey did to inform your performance? McGowan: I did watch quite a bit of her stuff, and then I threw it all away. I let it sink in and land where it was going to in my pea brain, but then I forgot about it. I didn’t try to match her at all, so if it’s there, that’s just a result of my previous research.
ETonline: I also have to say, the costumes you get to wear are kind of next level. McGowan: Oh, he kills me. Eduardo Castro is the costume designer, and he actually costumed me when I played Ann-Margret in the Elvis miniseries, so I’d already met him and what they serve up on that show is spectacular. It’s like doing Marie Antoinette back in the golden days of film.
