Alan Dale to play Prince Charming’s dad in new US series
Alan Dale has been cast in a new fairytale drama by two Lost producers.
Alan Dale has his next American gig, set to play the father of Prince Charming in a new fairytale drama Once Upon a Time from Lost producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.
The new series, to air on US network ABC in fall, will feature the former Neighbours actor in just one episode but it may not remain so fleeting.
“It’s a really pivotal role, and a pivotal part of the Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) story that we don’t think has been told yet,” Horowitz tells TVLine, “but we’re leaving the door open for a larger tale to potentially tell with him.”
And knowing how impressive Dale has been in other shows such as Lost, Ugly Betty, The OC -to name a few- that he’s bound to ramp up the appearances. He recently appeared in The Killing for AMC.
Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, have already placed several references to Lost in their new series, including a clock stuck at 8:15 and a Geronimo Jackson bumper sticker.
Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof is also a series consultant.
