TVGuide’s William Keck exclusively reveals details on Mulan’s role in Season 2 of ‘Once Upon A Time.’ Keck reports:
"I go on a journey with Prince Phillip to find his princess, Aurora," teases Mulan's portrayer, Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch). "There's this evil spirit that's moving and my character ends up bonding with Sleeping Beauty. And as you've heard, Captain Hook is joining us."
This sounds like a promising blend of fairytales! We already know Julian Morris will be playing the Prince Phillip to Sarah Bolger’s Sleeping Beauty. Thanks to EW.com, we now know that Irish actor, Colin O'Donoghue (‘The Rite’), has been cast as Captain Hook. ‘Once’ is already mixing things up by bringing in a younger version of Hook, rather than the bitter older man that has been portrayed in most incarnations of ‘Peter Pan.’ We can’t help but ask: How does Captain Hook fit into this picture? What part does he play in Prince Phillip and Aurora’s love-story? How much of ‘Sleeping Beauty’s’ story will be like the Disney classic? Chung says Mulan and Aurora bond, but is that before she disappears or after they rescue her? What or who is the “evil-spirit”? Will Maleficent still play a part in Aurora’s slumber?
So far, ABC has been doing a great job of shrouding season 2 in a cloak of mystery. EW.com reported earlier this month that ‘True Blood’ actor, Michael Raymond-James, has been cast in a recurring role. However, the network is keeping his role under wraps. Since then, the internet has been buzzing with various theories. The front-runner is that Raymond-James will play Rumpy’s long-lost son, Baelfire. If that is the case, it may connect with another fan-favorite idea that Baelfire is Henry’s birth father. If this is true, then it would make even more sense for ‘Once Upon A Time’ show-runners to keep the character’s identity a secret.
What do you make of Raymond-Jones top-secret role? Do you think the Baelfire theory is true? Who else could he be?!
