YNB: What are the consequences of Hook being back from the dead? Is he still the Hook we know and love?
Colin: I think he’s still the same Hook. Now that he knows it’s True Love with Emma, they are trying to figure out how to navigate being together. I think we might find out a bit more of his past though…
Once Upon a Time Reveals Aladdin Storyline, Casts Oded Fehr as Jafar (x)
ABC’s Once Upon a Time, at long last, is taking on the story of Aladdin, as revealed during a Season 6 teaser that debuted at the San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday.
At the close of Once‘s panel, cocreators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis gave the audience one more treat — in the form of the first three minutes from the Sunday, Sept. 25 season premiere. At the close of the clip, viewers met Aladdin, who is being played by Deniz Akdeniz (South Beach, right).
Poised to get in the street rat, riff-raff’s face, meanwhile, is Covert Affairs favorite Oded Fehr, as the evil Jafar. (Lost alum Naveen Andrews played the Royal Vizier of Agrabah on the short-lived Once Upon a Time in Wonderland spinoff, but was unavailable to reprise the role, due to hisSense8 commitments.)
The reveal of Aladdin and Jafar comes on the heels of a flurry of other Season 6 castings, including Giles Matthey (24: Live Another Day) as Morpheus, Craig Horner (Hindsight) as the Count of Monte Cristo and the returns of Cinderella/Ashley (played by Jessy Schram) and Dr. Archie Hopper (Raphael Sbarge).
