Hello dearies! There’s magical news out of Storybrooke as a new cast member has been announced to join the second half of season 5 of Once Upon a Time. Wes Brown of True Blood fame has been cast as Gaston for a flashback episode about Belle (Emilie de Ravin) before she met Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle). There is no specific air date but it is confirmed for this season. The character of Gaston is seen briefly in season one, episode twelve titled, “Skin Deep” and is never mentioned again.
Aside from True Blood, Wes Brown’s credits include 90210, Hart of Dixie, Private Practice and Deception. The second half of the season is shaping up to be a good one. Aside from our heroes going to Hades, we are getting our fill of new characters and promos. I can’t wait to see what else ABC and the crew behind Once Upon a Time have in store for us.
Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, March 6 at 8pm on ABC. Check your local listings.
