The Oregonian/OregonLive visited the Portland set of Grimm in early February, when the cast and crew were all smiles, as just the day before, they received the good news that NBC renewed the set and filmed-in-Portland for a fifth season. In this article, the cast talked about what’s coming in the next episodes and settling in Portland. Source: The Oregonian/OregonLive
Take a sneak peek at The Oregonian/OregonLive article.
Like many of their castmates, Giuntoli says he and Tulloch are becoming true Portlanders.
“If a real Portlander is a person who thinks they’ve been here forever, and gets angry when new people show up, then yes, I’m a Portlander,” Giuntoli says, with a grin. “All these new people showing up, who do they think they are?”
He and Tulloch have been enjoying hanging out in Portland while filming, Giuntoli adds. “She’s kind of like the Trail Blazers super fan girl. I’ll tag along for those, and I love that.”
When filming, Giuntoli says, the “Grimm” crew and cast try to be aware “that we are a visitor to the a neighborhood. We’re trying to keep Portland happy, because you guys have been so good to us.”
Claire Coffee, who’s wearing a coat that sort of conceals her real-life pregnancy, agrees that she’s got that Portland feeling. “I think I have enough coffee coursing through my veins at this point to qualify for Oregonian status,” she says.
Bree Turner, who plays Rosalee Calvert, the expert apothecary who’s married to her fellow Wesen, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) and whips up magical potions in her spice shop, is also feeling at home in Portland.
“I don’t go back to L.A. at all anymore,” says Turner. “We bought a place up here, which just made sense in my situation, with a family of four.” Rather than flying back and forth from Los Angeles to Portland, Turner says, “We made the decision to make this our home. It’s been way better for my family. I’m able to enjoy work more, because I’m totally present.”
