“Because you needed each other. I could not deprive you of the revelation of all that you could accomplish together. Of a friendship that would define you both, in ways you cannot yet realize.”
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.’
Chiodos have been together for a year now with their original lineup, and have now confirmed that they have been writing their new album for two months. Recording for the record will take place after Warped Tour. Check out a letter from the band below after the jump.
“We are getting married and you’ll be moving into the White House.”, a Kill Bill death squad in Liv’s apartment, Cyrus’ black little special heart finally giving out, Mellie succumbing to her inner denial laced madness, and most of all…Fitz getting a midnight snack in the kitchen ala magical thigh pie…
Is it Thursday, yet?
Gina (effinbullseye) and I will be starting a Samcedes 1x1!!!
Both are east coast native adults, residing in New York while leading different lives with a common thread, prior to meeting face to face. Care to know more? Follow along on our Sam & Mercedes accounts!
-Mixology got picked up.
I’m really excited for Vanessa Lengies. She’ll have a leading role and get a chance to shine, hopefully on a show that will last beyond the pilot. Plus, more Vanessa gifs for me to use!
-Happy Endings was cancelled.
I never really watched the show. Couldn’t get into it but I heard it was pretty funny, so that’s kind of a bummer I suppose.
-The New Normal was cancelled.
Again. I never really watched the show. Only heard 1 person say it was pretty funny, but Ryan Murphy had his hands on it and that man confuses the hell out of me. American Horror Story’s gotten unanimous praise from folks I’ve asked who’ve watched it. But then I look at Glee and side-eye the hell out of that man’s entire existence.
-Smash was cancelled.
Gave the show a try. Couldn’t get into it so I’m not too sad to see it go off the air.
-Body of Proof was cancelled.
They had something going for the 1st season. The 2nd season was a blur, and this 3rd season was pretty weak for me. The Tommy guy was a shitty replacement for a “chemistry/love interest” for Megan. So while I’m bummed to see it go, I get why.
-The Neighbors is on the fence for possible cancellation.
I’d like some exec to push it over the edge and cancel this show. I’ve given it a try and it’s a dumb show—easily one of the most ridiculous shows ABC’s got on its network.
-How to Live With Your Parents For the Rest of Your Life was cancelled.
I have the pilot a shot. Tuned in for about half of the second ep and already lost interest. No shocker here.
-The Taste is also on the fence for cancellation.
This show was pretty bland from the get (badum tss), so I wouldn’t be disappointed if it didn’t return for another season.
