The producers of “Once Upon a Time” are very much holding nothing back when it comes to the casting of some of their “Lost Boys” to dwell within their realm of Neverland, but what we find particularly interesting about this booking is not necessarily the actor’s name, but the fact that he has already taken on a very storybook-friendly role in the past.
Per TVLine, Robbie Kay, who ironically starred in the 2008 TV miniseries “Pinocchio,” is going to appear on the ABC hit on a recurring basis through at least the early portion of season 3. While the name of the character has not been revealed as of yet, we can at least confirm that we are not looking at the casting of Rufio, who is set to be the leader of this group.
The appearance of Neverland really has been in the making ever since before season 2 began, when we first met Captain Hook. It was not hard to figure out that you could not have this character without Peter Pan following suit, and this is still the big-ticket casting that has yet to be revealed. It’s possible that this name could be revealed later this week, when the show holds their panel discussion at Comic-Con in San Diego.
With Henry lost somewhere on this island, we are sure that the story will take place in Neverland for at least the first several weeks of the season, if not longer. Just remember that Storybrooke is not going to be completely forgotten in the progress.
