Once Upon A Time, the fairy-tale meets soap opera, has one of the most vast and eclectic casts on television, intermingling character actors (Robert Carlyle), television stalwarts (House’s Jennifer Morrison) and relative unknowns (Colin O’Donoghue). The list of series regulars totals at eleven and the number of recurring players/guest stars far exceeds even that number. At the end of the second season most of the cast (minus Emilie de Ravin’s Belle) were casting off on Captain Hook’s boat on a mission to save lead Emma’s (Morrison) son Henry from the nefarious clutches of Peter Pan.
In the following round table interview, the cast (Jennifer Morrison, Robert Carlyle, Colin O’Donoghue, Emilie De Ravin and Michael Raymond-James) preview the upcoming third season, discuss the difficulties in working with green screen and confide how they keep their characters ‘fresh’ after playing them for two-plus seasons.
