Stargate Universe star Robert Carlyle is going from dark corridors and Ancient computer consoles to smalltown America and fairy tales. The actor has been confirmed as a full-time cast member on Once Upon A Time, the new fantasy series just picked up by ABC for its fall schedule.
Today ABC released the first trailer for the show, plus photos of the cast. Click on the images below to see the full-size version, and watch the video!
Carlyle plays the dual character of Mr. Gold in the real world of Storybrooke, and the infamous Rumplestiltskin in the world of fairy tales — both of whom appear in the trailer.
An unexpected surprise is Stargate‘s good friend Tony Amendola, who appears in the pilot episode (perhaps playing Geppetto?). A frequent guest star on Stargate SG-1, Amendola played the Jaffa master Bra’tac for ten years.
Check out the rest of the cast photos for the new show at HitFix.com. Once Upon A Time will air Sundays at 8 p.m. (7 Central) starting in the fall.
