From the acclaimed writers of LOST, Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis, comes the complete first season of ABC-TV’s enchanting hit, “Once Upon A Time,’ to stunning high-definition Blu-rayTM and DVD on August 28, 2012. The year’s #1 co-viewed drama on broadcast television, “Once Upon A Time: The Complete First Season,” includes all 22 adventure-filled episodes of the first season and allows fans to delve deeper than ever before into the mystery and magic of the epic new series with immersive, never-before-seen bonus material that will continue to keep audiences of all ages spellbound — including conversations with the cast on their childhood memories of Snow White, deleted scenes, audio commentaries, an exploration of the genesis of this innovative and inspiring series and “The Fairest Bloopers of Them All.”
“Once Upon A Time” the Evil Queen cast an evil spell on an enchanted forest filled with fairytale characters. The curse trapped these characters in a place where all their happy endings were stolen – our world. Now the Evil Queen is acting as town mayor, and all of the inhabitants of the fairytale world of Storybrooke can’t seem to remember any details of their past lives. As the truth starts to unfold, the battle between good and evil begins.
The enchanted TV series features a stellar ensemble cast including Ginnifer Goodwin (“Big Love”;), Jennifer Morrison (“House M.D.”;), Lana Parrilla (“Medium”;), Josh Dallas (“Thor”;), Jared S. Gilmore (“Mad Men”;), Robert Carlyle (“28 Weeks Later” and Raphael Sbarge (“Dexter”;).

And writer/producer most awesome,
Fans looking for answers about Person of Interest’s cliffhanger finale at the CBS drama’s Comic-Con panel did not squeeze much out of creator Jonathan Nolan and showrunner Greg Plageman — but the duo were confident about bringing back a recent guest.
“We had a great experience with Amy Acker and we have big plans for her,” said Nolan, when asked if she would be reappearing in the sophomore season.
Giancarlo Esposito sounded much more upbeat then his”Breaking Bad” character, Gustavo “Gus” Fring, discussing his Emmy nomination on Thursday morning.
“I’m over the moon and definitely honored,” Esposito said from Wilmington, N.C., where he’s filming “Revolution,” a new NBC drama that will air this fall. “I screamed, I cried. This is the culmination of a long career in television and film, and I’m so glad to be in this incredible group of actors.”

Ginny’s Audition trick
While others like to socialise with the competition to help calm their nerves, Goodwin likes to put her earphones on and ignore everyone around her.
The Walk The Line star tells The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m terrified… I don’t want to affect anyone and… I don’t want anyone affecting me and so I seriously become a hermit inside myself. I don’t know who I’m sitting in rooms with.”
“There will be a lot more butt kicking,” she told AccessHollywood.com of her character Snow/Mary Margaret, who along with the rest of the residents of Storybrooke, remembered their fairytale pasts in the Season 1 finale.”
“There will be fight training involved,” she added. “We will be going back [on Sunday], so this week we will be getting things underway.”
Ginnifer Goodwin may be better known as Snow White in her ABC show “Once Upon a Time,” but she was rocking a seriously red look for press at San Diego Comic-Con this year. Perhaps it’s just a small indication of how Snow — aka Mary Margaret — will be adjusting how she “represents herself.”
Now that the curse has been broken in the television show’s Storybrooke hometown, fans will see a lot of growth from every character, as they learn their own magic abilities during Season 2. However, “Magic operates differently in this world, so we don’t necessarily know what the effects of using magic will be,” Goodwin said.
Kristen Bauer Van Straten is making an Anti-Poaching Documentary
month, Kristin Bauer van Straten, better known as True Blood‘s Pam, will leave for Kenya, where she’ll spend four weeks filming a documentary about the effort to stop elephant ivory and rhino horn poaching — a cause dear to her South African husband’s family. His grandfather was a professor of physiology who helped treat, relocate, and save wildlife. Just as the experts need help to keep elephants and rhinos from going extinct, Bauer van Straten needs help to fund her film project.
(Mulan) “She’s lovely,” Jennifer Morrison, who plays Emma Swann, told Access at Comic-Con of Jamie, who she’s worked with before in film. “I’ve heard the most amazing things about Sarah… Really just heard over and over again that she’s just extraordinary, so I’m really excited to meet her.”

Ginnifer Goodwin’s Name Game
(Cover) – EN Movies – Ginnifer Goodwin was one of several stars to have a code name on the set of He’s Not That Into You.
The actress appeared in the 2009 rom-com which also featured Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Connolly. She admits that special measures had to be brought in on set to distinguish between them.
“We had to have a code for the three Jennifers on set, oh yes! I went by GG as these are my initials. Jennifer Aniston was Jen and Jennifer Connolly was Jennifer,” the actress explained to Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O. “We have the same issue in Once Upon a Time too as we have Jennifer Morrison. I think I have a thing for J names!”
The 34-year-old actress managed to make the tough transition from movies into TV.
She has had success with her role in Once Upon a Time that is now filming a second season. Ginnifer says although many actors find it a hard decision to make, for her it was an easy one.
“No it wasn’t once I looked at the script. I hadn’t been planning to go back into TV. I read some movie scripts and I hated all of them to be honest,” Ginnifer admitted. “The state of the movie industry is that unless you’re in some major comic book movie you’re kind of screwed. Then I read through some TV script pilots and I realised that that’s where all the great script writers have gone, they have gone into TV.”
