The vast majority of Grimm scenes are shot in Portland, Oregon. Ironically, the producers of Grimm had no idea that the "Brothers Grimm" have descendants living in Portland until being told by a member of the audience at Comic Con. The brothers are famed for writing classic fairytales including "Cinderella", "The Frog Prince", "Hansel and Gretel", "Rapunzel", "Rumpelstiltskin", and "Snow White".
The German word "Wesen" means "Nature" in English. The German pronunciation of the word is "Vayzun"! Other names and terms on Grimm are also German words including "Blutbad" which means bloodbath, "Hexen" which means witches, "mellifer" which means honey-carrier and "Schaden" which means misfortune or misery. Other German words are used that are either mis-spelled or gramatically incorrect, probably because they would be hard for an English speaking audience to pronounce or the word would simply look strange the way it's spelled in German.
Although Monroe and Wu are never referred to by their first names, it was stated in the pilot episode that Monroe's first name is Eddie. Wu's first name was revealed to be Drew in the third season.
Sasha Rioz and Russell Hornsby appeared together on the ESPN series, "Playmakers" before joining the cast of Grimm. Sasha played a young coach named Stephen Lyles and Russell played an aging running back named Leon Taylor. The 2003 series lasted only 11 episodes although it was doing very well in the ratings for ESPN. The reason for the cancellation was most likely pressure from the NFL owners and players because the show highlighted the negative parts of the lives of the players off the field rather than hero-worshiping them for their on the field activities.
