Behind the Scenes of “Grimm”

Posted by Lindsay Pfeifer | 07 May 2015

Two of the stars in our upcoming production of Three Days of Rain are joining us on their hiatus from NBC's Grimm - Silas Weir Mitchell and Sasha Roiz. The name 'Grimm' might sound familiar because it is filmed right here in Portland, but if you aren't familiar with the series, The Oregonian described it as, "a cop drama—with a twist... a dark and fantastical project about a world in which characters inspired by Grimms' Fairy Tales exist." Earlier this year, OPB took a look at the artists and craftspeople behind the show and all it takes to create that eerie vibe audiences love. Additionally, The Oregonian did a similar piece about the set of Grimm and how the actors feel about Portland (spoiler: they love it).


Silas Weir Mitchell plays Monroe on Grimm, and both Walker and Ned Janeway in Three Days of Rain. His Grimm character is a creature called a 'Wieder Blutbad' and is the right-hand man to the main character, Nick Burkhardt. He aids with solving homicide cases and is considered very knowledgeable. Sasha Roiz plays Captain Sean Renard on Grimm, and Pip and Theo Wexler in Three Days of Rain. His character in Grimm is a magical creature called a 'Zauberiest' and is Nick's superior. Be sure to check out their Portland theater debut in Three Days of Rain.
