“Once Upon A Time” Casts Stephen Lord As Rumplestiltskin’s Dad
ABC’s “Once Upon A Time” has cast actor Stephen Lord as Rumplestiltskin’s dad! Rumplestiltskin’s (Robert Carlyle) dad was labeled a coward at a young agle, and Rumplestiltskin wanted nothing more than to be the opposite of his father.
According to reports, Stephen will appear in at least one flaskback on the series! The first flashback will air on November 17, 2013.
Here’s a note from “Once Upon A Time” creator Edward Kitsis about the character:
We’ve hinted in the past that his father was a coward and that his father’s name was something that haunted him and that his father left him. This is a man who wants to break the cycle of his past. He wants to be a good father, but it’s like that quote, ‘I can resist everything but temptation,’ so that’s also his weakness.
We can’t wait to tune in to meet Rumplestiltskin’s father!
