Interview conducted by Amy Hood- @AmyLia403
In Season one of Once Upon A Time, the character of “Granny” quickly became a fan favorite. From her first sassy lines on screen in Storybrooke, to her stereotype breaking turn in “Red Handed”, Granny found her way into the hearts of thousands of fans. Who could forget the now famous image of Granny wielding that crossbow? Not your traditional version of Red Riding Hood’s Granny from the stories, our Granny is one tough lady.
We at Once Upon A Fan have been extremely lucky to conduct a “quick fire” twitter interview with the amazing actress that brings Granny to life each week, Beverley Elliot. Beverley is an amazing, kind and extremely talented performer whose body of work includes television, movies, theater and vocal performance. We appreciate this opportunity to Tweet with Beverley and get to know her a little better. The answers brought interesting and often hilarious results.

Mark Isham has an impressive career that has spanned more than three decades. He is an accomplished composer having scored over twenty films, numerous television shows, and solo works.

A master trumpet performing artist, he has played with acclaimed jazz bands and some of the greatest orchestras in the world.
In 2011 he was introduced to an entirely new audience when he agreed to compose the enchanting music for the hit TV show Once Upon a Time. Once Upon a Fan recently had the honor of speaking with Mark Isham in this exclusive interview.
Sinqua Walls Talks About His Breakthrough Role as Lancelot in Once Upon a Time and How He Intends to Portray a Knight Who Shines From the Inside Out by Diane J. Reed.
Please Note: Interview contains discussion and minor spoilers about the direction season two may take with Lancelot's character.
Ever experience that moment when goosebumps skitter down your spine because you suddenly realize you’re in the presence of someone who’s going to be a big star? Of course not! Because generally, most of us don’t stumble across Julia Roberts or Denzel Washington before they hit it big. That is, unless you’re lucky enough to call Sinqua Walls for an exclusive phone interview prior to the airing of Season 2.
With his combination of charisma, discipline, and razor-sharp intelligence, it became clear to me that this is a man who’ll go far. Add to that a rare and endearing humility, and Sinqua will probably have future audiences eating out of his hand. We’re delighted he took the time to chat with us and to give us a glimpse of why Once Upon a Time cast him as the iconic “perfect” knight of the Round Table whose tragic flaws provided us with fascinating fodder for conversation.
