“Once Upon Time” has finally cast Prince Leopold, the future father of Snow White and show creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis have once again turned to ‘The Island’ to find the right person in the form of “Lost” alum Eric Lange. The news was announced in a Feb. 5 post on E! Online.
Fans of “Lost will remember Lange as Stuart Raszinsky. Now he will be making the leap from the island to Fairy Tale Land as the younger, unmarried version of King Leopold. He will turn up in a flashback segment featured in episode 18, “Bleeding Through.”
In the flashback, Leopold is a young man in search of a bride. Not just any bride, Leopold who is humble and grounded, wants a woman he can love, trust and who will uphold the family honor. He doesn’t want an arranged marriage but seeks someone with whom he really connects.
The Prince Leopold episode is still quite a ways off but it’s exciting to know we will learn more about the man, the woman he chose and how they came to raise the daughter we know as Snow White.
When we left off, Regina (Lana Parilla) used her magic to transport the residents of Storybrooke back to Fairy Tale Land to protect them from the devastation of Peter Pan’s curse. She also gave Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Henry (Jared Gilmore) new memories that didn’t include any of the Storybrooke crew because they had to stay in this world.
“Once Upon a Time” will return on Sunday, March 9 with “New York City Serenade” at 8 p.m.
