5 Once Upon a Time Secrets
1. Sherlock Holmes almost was in Season 1
Showrunner, Edward Kitsis admits that Jamie Dornan (Sheriff Graham/The Huntsman) almost donned a deerstalker cap and solved mysteries in Storybrooke.
Kitsis: “Here’s something interesting. Originally the sheriff was Sherlock Holmes. He was going to be a detective and his curse was he was in a town with no mystery. So he was this bored sheriff. And there was a rights issue so we could not get it.” from http://www.ew.com/article/2012/10/21/once-upon-jack-sparrow
2. Originally, Charming had a very different fate in the Pilot
Kitsis admitted that initially that Charming was slotted to die at the end of the Pilot script, but ABC talked him out of such a bleak ending. (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/once-a-time-100th-episode-871533) How would you have felt about the show if Charming would have died at the end of the Pilot episode?
3. You won’t believe who almost played the Blue Fairy
It’s no secret that showrunners Kitsis and Horowitz are huge music fans. The role of the Blue Fairy was originally offered to Lady Gaga. Since the Blue Fairy does make return appearances on OUAT quite often, it might have been very tough to line up schedules. (http://www.wetpaint.com/which-pop-idol-almost-played-807089/)
4. Hook was to be in Season 1
In Season 1 of OUAT, Hook was going to be introduced, but copyright issues stood in the way. By the beginning of Season 2, the copyright issues of Peter Pan had been ironed out and Hook became part of the OUAT story.
5. Once Upon a Time almost had a Sci-Fi Feel
Katee Sackhoff – as Emma? It could have happened. Katee Sackhoff (better known as Starbuck from the 2004 version of Battlestar Galactica) auditioned 5 times for the role of Emma. How would Once Upon a Time have been to you with a different Emma?
