One of the biggest charms of ABC’s “Once Upon A Time” is the fact that it has an inexhaustible amount of characters, whether it be from a beloved fairytale, story, legend, or Disney movie, to draw from. This time around, the fantastical television show will be adding a beloved Disney and legendary couple to the mix, and fans of the television show will be seeing the return of a particular actress, who hasn’t been seen since the last time she was on the show around two years ago. WARNING: This article will contain spoilers for an episode that will air in 2016. Read on to learn more about who will be coming to Storybrooke, and to learn who will be returning to the show.
“Once Upon A Time” has never shied away from adding interesting characters who are not only legendary and historical in nature, but also have added mythological characters as well.
This season, fans of the television show were delighted to see that King Arthur and his court have made an appearance on the show, but fans of Greek mythology and of the Disney movie “Hercules” will be just as delighted as TV Line has just announced that the demi-god Hercules and his love interest Megara will be making an appearance sometime after the winter break in 2016, in an episode entitled “Labor of Love.”
The Greek hero and demi-god Hercules will be portrayed by Jonathan Whitesell. His character is described as someone who is eager to fulfill his destiny to become the greatest hero to roam the earth, but who gets distracted after he stumbles upon a beautiful princess.
Meanwhile, actress Kacey Rohl will be portraying the witty, tough and adventurous Megara, whose personality and drive hasn’t been extinguished by a long stint in a dungeon cell.
This is also consistent with their Disney film counterparts, without having a princess to distract Hercules around.
According to TV Line, Entertainment Weekly and Executive Producer Adam Horowitz, who posted the news on his Twitter account, actress Bailee Madison, who will be reprising her role as the young Snow White, will also be appearing in the same episode as Hercules and Megara, but it isn’t sure how long she’ll be staying on.
