Getting 'Grimm'

Fans visit the West Linn filming location of the NBC hit show to see the starts

The crew of "Grimm" turned out to be not so ghastly, ghostly or ghoulish. The popular NBC show was in West Linn last week filming at a home on Riverknoll Way.

The actors and crew from the show proved to be friendly, taking time for photo ops with West Linn fans and passers-by.

"When he was breaking for lunch, I called over to the lead actor, David Giuntoli, and asked if I could take his picture with a few of the kids who had been waiting to meet him," said Roberta Schwarz of West Linn. "He was very generous and ran over from the vehicle waiting for him and really seemed to enjoy his time with the kids."

Trailers were set up along the 3400 block of Riverknoll Way all of March 21 and 22. Crews spent the morning of March 22 dealing with the dumping of snow that had fallen overnight.

'Grimm,' a police procedural set in a world where Grimm's fairy-tale characters are real, stars Giuntoli as a Portland police detective who can see fairy-tale monsters living among us.

The series has become popular in Portland in part for its frequent use of local actors and locations.

Look for a more in-depth story about the West Linn filming in mid-April, around the time the episode "Cinderella" will air.
