Once Upon a Time: David Anders returning in season 6 — exclusive (x)

David Anders will return to Storybrooke for one episode in the upcoming sixth season of Once Upon a Time, EW has learned exclusively.

The iZombie star will reprise his role as Dr. Whale, a.k.a Victor Frankenstein, who last appeared in a season 5 episode, where he helped deliver Zelena’s (Rebecca Mader) baby.

“If you’re going to have Jekyll [Hank Harris] and Hyde [Sam Witwer], there has to be a mad scientist convention,” executive producer Edward Kitsis says. Adds EP Adam Horowitz: “Let’s just say mad scientists stick together.”

Anders joins other returning familiar faces, including Jessy Schram as Cinderella and Raphael Sbarge as Dr. Hopper, along with new characters Jafar (Oded Fehr), Aladdin (Deniz Akdeniz), Princess Jasmine (Karen David), Morpheus (Giles Matthey), and the Count of Monte Cristo (Craig Horner).

Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

What do you do to stay motivated in being a vegan? Im a vegetarian and I lose motivation on the occasion. Btw ilysm!

Ahhhh hey there, kiddo! :D Ilysm too! <333 So I feel you about this. It can be hard to stay veg in a very non-veg world, but here’s how I do it, and I hope this helps, you too!

  • I think about why I’m doing this. This reason is different for everyone, but for me it’s about animals. I want to do everything I can to reduce their suffering. Thinking of what happens to them is what has kept me vegan for over six years and will keep me vegan for the rest of my life. <333
  • I remember how unhealthy animal products are. I once saw a talk on how it can clog your arteries and omg, that really has stuck with me!!
  • I think of all the good it’s doing for the environment. The gases released from factory farms are a HUGE cause (the biggest, actually) of global warming. Being veg really helps with that.
  • I read about it. I get books about it, read articles about it… just anything to make me remember I’m not the only veg person out there.
  • I think of all the good it’s doing. Being veg can make a huge difference for so many beings! It obviously is good for the animals, but also for the earth, your own health, and other people! By using less food to keep animals alive for meat/byproducts, more grains and such can go to people who need them.   

    I hope this helps, kiddo! If you ever want to talk about it, I’m here for you! Us veg-kiddos gotta stick together! :D <333
