They're in casting overdrive at Once Upon a Time this summer. In addition to two new regulars (Emilie de Raivin as Belle and Meghan Ory as Ruby/Red), the show looks to be full of new guest and recurring characters in season 2. Keep reading for information on three characters -- one of whom will be played by a familiar face from Teen Wolf.
From Wolf to Knight
According to a report from TVLine
, Sinqua Walls will guest-star on Once Upon a Time
season 2 as the legendary Sir Lancelot. Walls currently appears as Boyd, one of the new werewolves brought into Derek's pack, in Teen Wolf
This is, of course, not the Lancelot you're used to from the King Arthur stories. More or less. The character is described as a "sword for hire with nothing to lose" after authorities banished him from the Round Table.
As of right now, Sinqua Walls' role of Lancelot will be for only one episode.Time to Know Jack
Jack is coming to Once Upon a Time
Is this the Jack of "Jack and the Beanstalk" fame? Or one of the countless other "Jacks" to appear in fairy tales and folklore? No clue. But whoever Jack is, E!Online
reports that he will be damaged, charismatic and mysterious. When Jack appears on Once Upon a Time
, he will be on the run from his past -- and possibly dangerous to those he meets.Captain Hook Is Coming...Peter Pan
villain Captain Hook is set to make a major appearance on Once Upon a Time
season 2. The details and the casting of this villain remain unknown, but there are a few more tidbits of information we can share. Another report from E!Online
claims that Captain Hook will have a British accent (no clue whether or not this means Once Upon a Time
has secretly cast the part) and will first appear in episode 4 of Once Upon a Time
season 2. The character might recur in later episodes as well.For Those of You Keeping Track
Of these three character announcements, only one technically comes from the land of fairy tales. Much like the Mad Hatter and Pinocchio before them, Sir Lancelot and Captain Hook are not actual fairytale characters.
Sir Lancelot is a regular character featured in legends about King Arthur. While possibly based on actual historical characters, the Arthurian legends have appeared in various literary forms for more than a millennium. Captain Hook, meanwhile, is a little more recent. This villain first appeared in the 1904 play (and later 1911 novel) Peter and Wendy
by J.M. Barrie.Once Upon a Time
season 2 will air Sundays at 8pm this fall on ABC.(Image courtesy of MTV)
