TVLine Items: Once Casts Lost Alum, 24 Baddie Clocks Out, Gossip Actor Joins Agent X and More
Once Upon a Time has found another prince.
The ABC drama has tapped Eric Lange, who played Lost‘s Stuart Radzinsky in Season 5, to appear as the young Prince Leopold, per E! Online.
As TVLine previously reported, Leopold, who debuts in Episode 18′s Enchanted Forest flashbacks, is grounded, humble and not afraid to open his heart, coveting more from marriage than just a political arrangement. That same episode marks the return of Eva Bourne as Young Eva and Rose McGowan as Young Cora (another TVLine scoop, by the bye).
