On Jan. 3 Wetpaint revealed that "Once Upon a Time" will be having yet another guest star come to Storybrooke, the "Downton Abbey" harried cook Lesley Nichols! One cast regular is very excited to have the opportunity to meet the British star, Josh Dallas who plays Prince Charming says that he is a huge fan of the show and is very excited about the guest role.
While it hasn't been said who Nichols will be playing, the big news is that she will be playing a servant, however, she is not Mrs. Potts from "Beauty and the Beast." There are many fairy tale stories that have some kind of servant so she could likely be coming from any story. It seems that this new character could bring an interesting twist, and leads to the question, who has a servant? Could it be a character we already know or someone that we haven't met yet?
Fans of the show won't know whether Lesley's character is good or bad until we see for sure, but it seems likely that she leans toward the lighter side of things and could work for any of the royal families of the series, likely as a nanny of some capacity?
Are you excited to see Lesley Nichols come aboard the "OUAT" train?
